Arrived in Bali after an early start and an Airport trip with two guys from the hostel, one of which had been at Liverpool uni at the same time as me! Small World.
We had best intentions to get the bus to Ubud however the information man we disturbed to ask questions thought we were crazy so we settled on a taxi. On arrival we had to find somewhere to stay so headed to our first choice from our books. Was nice but a little pricey (for Bali) so looked around. Soon we were too hot and the others not so good so after an embarrassing failed attempt at bartering we were sorted.
Organised a few activities then its been non stop since. Balinese Dance show on the first night followed by a hectic day yesterday off Cooking Class including market tour then a wander round the shops where we improved our bartering stills - good price!
Dragged ourselves out on a run which was very worth while. We couldn't find the path we were after and ended up running down the side of the paddy fields where i lost my footing and took a slight tumble! After the run and the PT session from Capt Watson we collapsed for a read of books and papers and a few beers on our veranda.
Today is shopping in the market this morning then traditional pork and crackling for lunch. Then we plan to work that off at a Balinese dance class. To round the day off we have a massage and pedicure booked in.
Plan is to move on tomorrow after an early morning Yoga session and head to the coast for Anna to dive and me to work on my tan - i feel so white its unbelievable.
