And they’re off!
It’s official – they are in the air and on their way. The beauty of technology actually allows me to track exactly where they are in the world right now. Currently – they are just starting to fly over Greenland. Check out their first leg of the journey here (flight CX829) That’s pretty cool thing to be able to do, I have to admit. I wouldn’t have even thought that was possible 10 years ago!
Since they are up in the air and relaxing (and hopefully sleeping!) this is the perfect time for me to fill you in on how they will end their time in Bali. After spending 3 fabulous days in Ubud, we will head down to the south west cost to Seminyak. This area is known for its wining, dining and shopping! The perfect place to end a fantastic couple of weeks together in SE Asia.
While we are in Seminyak, we will be staying at Villa Arta. This a 3 bedroom private villa and I am very much looking forward to just chilling out, reading and relaxing by the private pool. (What’s the extra room for? Well, nothing really – it was just a better deal than the 2 bedroom villas I was looking at!) It is right off the main shopping area and a very short walk to the beach as well. Heaven!
While in Seminyak, I don’t have too much planned. I was waiting to see how we were feeling and what we wanted to do. Perhaps we will just want to relax a little together, maybe have a mooch around in the shops, lazy afternoons with Bintang beers in hand perhaps? All sounds very, very fabulous.
If we want to squeeze in one more thing, we may head down to Uluwatu temple (about an hour drive from Seminyak) to catch the sunset and watch a Kechak performance. Kechak is a chanting style performance made up of about 150 performers and through their chanting they reenact the Ramanyana (a famous Hindu epic). I have seen one of these performances during my first trip to Bali and I really enjoyed it and the setting over the cliffs of Uluwatu sounds absolutely perfect.
Essentially, while we are in Seminyak we will be winding down, reminiscing about all the amazing things we have done for the 2 weeks of travel, and probably crying because it is the end of our holiday. 🙂
On the Saturday we will fly back to Singapore to be reunited again with Kelso (unfortunately, he can’t join us on the Bali part of the holiday) and we will enjoy some of the last sights of my home away from home.
Looking forward to welcoming my parents tomorrow – I hope I can sleep 🙂
Let the Anniversary Asian Adventures begin!!!
