I have just spent a week in Bali with my husband sans children. This was our first time and it was a wonderful adventure. I won't go on about it because I find other people's holiday snaps boring and don't want to put you through it. So I'll race through the highlights.
The hungry, little fish that nibble at dry skin. They were very tickley and seemed to vibrate. As butch as my husband is, he giggled like a little girl.
We hit Sarong for cocktails and dinner. This was on the recommendation of Mrs Woog and Nikki Parkinson. It was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. We rolled out of that place very content and a little tipsy.Water Blow at Nusa Dua. No one told us about this place and we stumbled upon it on an adventure. It was mesmerising watching the ocean drain out of a narrow gap in the cliff and then come gushing back in, bursting into a bubbly tower of water. The trembling and rumbling created by the water was fantastic. We got absolutely drenched but didn't want to leave.
Spa day. On a rainy day, we found a spa and planted ourselves in it for the day. Massages, facials, cream bath with a mani and pedi. It was only $80 for the two of us and was an excellent way to relax after a few busy, adventure days.
Visiting the ancient Uluwatu Temple. We climbed a old, stone staircase along the cliff face to reach the temple. We had a guide/monkey tamer/photographer led us around but you are not allowed inside the temple. We were constantly warned about the hundreds of cheeky monkeys that reside there. I saw plenty of monkeys but, to my disappointment, no cheeky ones.
Celebrity Cycling Tour Bali. We ended up calling on him a few times when we wanted some local assistance and he was fantastic.
