V A C A T I O N !!

My dream vacation is a trip that we took two years ago and a place that I would love to go back to again and again; Bali
For the first couple of days I like to stay at the hotel and just relax. Walk around the hotel area, stay by the pool and read!
It's easy to relax when the surroundings look like this...
After a couple of days I get restless! I have to see more of this beautiful island! And what more suiting than to see temples when yo are in Bali?! What beautiful views!
The royal temple: entrance
The royal temple area, with the beautiful temple building with multistoried roof and Balinese Architecture.
You can't go to a warm Asian country without enjoying at least one sunset! This is from Kuta beach the party place in Bali!
We stayed in all sorts of hotels, but even in the simplest of place the bed looked like this! I loved their interior designs ans wished I could ship it home...
This is a picture from a day when we where walking the streets of the shopping town Ubud. This was a wedding party and just before I took this picture the street was full with people dressed in all colours and happy faces!
This is me, sitting at a café and reading in our Lonely planet about our next destination. It really is the best companion for travelling on your own!
Ubud is the ultimate shopping place in Bali. Here I bought lots of beads to make my own jewellery with and books and little spa gifts for the people at home!
Back to the beach, here I'm waiting for Mr J to finish his jet skii adventure. He was so happy after those 15 minutes on a jet....:-)
Rice fields, is also something you have to see when you are in Bali!
More hidden temples!
and beautiful views!
Colourful flowers!
and green...
Last but not least...drinks! Remember to drink a lot when the weather is hot:-) Well, not so much this kind of drink...But it's never wrong with a Long island ice tea, you are on an island and icetea is good! Hope you'll enjoyed my dream vacation, now I'm off to see more dream destinations! Join in the fun!

I have been to Phuket, Thailand and it was very similar to Bali. I loved visiting all the Buddhist temples!
