Brief reflections on Bali

First day back in the office after a fab holiday in Indonesia. We sent most time in Bali, but we did go to another couple of islands out there too – Gili Trawangan and Lombok.

We flew from LHR to Doha, got a connecting flight to Jakarta (via Singapore) and then flew Jakarta to Bali (Denpasar airport). The journey took about 30 something hours but was well worth it.

We stayed a couple of nights in Kuta before flying to Lombok where we got a boat to Gili T. We stayed in Gili T for a few nights and then got a boat back to Lombok where we took a trip to some waterfalls. Stayed in Lombok for one night before flying back to Bali and heading to Ubud which is in-coast and is the central cultural area with lots of art, wood carving, temples etc. We stayed two nights there and then went back to Kuta for about 4/5 nights. We then flew to Jakarta where we stayed overnight and then flew back to LHR the following day (the journey home seemed much longer than the journey there!)

Was a fab holiday and we did so much stuff that it feels like it was longer than a fortnight! We did surfing, snorkelling, kayaking, visited waterfalls, rode an elephant, went to the monkey forest and lots of other stuff! Will try and write a few more details soon…

Is it too soon to be excited?

At the weekend I booked my flights for my summer holiday to Indonesia – am going to Bali, the Gilli Isles and Lembongan and I am pretty excited! The tickets arrived in the post on Tuesday – I was quite impressed!


My cousin Maria lives in Jakarta and works in the British International School over there so she regularly visits Bali for long weekends and half term breaks etc. She has just returned from a week over there and I think she is already making plans for our holiday – she isn’t called ‘military Moylan’ for nothing!

I will be travelling there with my cousin Katrina (Maria’s sister) and Kat’s boyfriend Dave. I had a fab time in Barcelona with Maria and Katrina this summer so am expecting even more fun next year!

Just need to save all of my money until then – pretty tricky with a mortgage etc but will be worth it i’m sure!!

On this cold wintery day, it’s nice to have something sunny to look forward to!
