Bargaining at the doctor’s

16 Feb

The result of all the bargaining... Health (let's hope)

Even though the volcanic hot springs were heaven – judging from the Indonesian angels splashing around in the water ;-) the baths did not turn out as healthy as they proclaimed to be. By the time we arrived in Seminyak, my ear was twitching and hurting. Nothing that a short visit to our local doctor can’t fix – even though that also involved some negotiation and bargaining skills… with the doctor and the nurse! Continue reading

Bali road trip – lot’s of road

15 Feb

Sticky rice on the rice terraces

For some reason Indonesia (Bali) seems tougher to get around in than Thailand. There’s a lot more ‘services’ that just blatantly rip you off – with a friendly smile. Once you get a feel for the prices though, you can get good deals – so we booked ourselves a trip around Bali, mixing and matching the ‘standard tours’ and going off the tourist trail a bit.

When I discovered that I had only a few days left in Indonesia (because of a ticket I had booked months before, without thinking too much) I thought I would not have the opportunity to see much of Java. But that was without counting on my Bali friend.

Bye Bye Bali ;-(

Bye Bye Bali ;-(

I just loved our time in Bali – not so difficult when staying in luxurious villas and chilling out in lounge bars – or eating yummy and cheap food on the road side. So it was very tempting to stay another few days, and I did. But then when I finally started thinking to move on, I had a look at the flight I had booked out of Indonesia AND IT TURNED OUT TO BE IN 4 DAYS. So I had to evacuate in a rush to Java.
