Our Arrival

After about 25 hours of continuous travel we finally arrived in Bali yesterday. The flight was brutal, but the island is beautiful. Everywhere you look, taxis and motorcycles are whizzing by as they weave in and out of traffic. The narrow streets are packed with locals and tourist, and the greenery is overwhelming.

We found a hotel tucked away down a little ally that was perfect, air-con and warm water. After getting settled in we went for a walk on Legion and Kuta beach, wandered through the shops, and found a great little restaurant for dinner. We sat next to a German couple and chatted with them throughout our meal. They told us about all the island's highlights.

We are looking forward to leaving this busy beach city today and heading up to Ubud in the mountains to take in some dancing and jungle hiking!

Lessons I've Learned:
1. It is VERY humid. I need to get my mind around this whole sticky situation.
2. Air Conditioning may be one the greatest inventions EVER.
3. Exotic honeymoon adventures with your wife are AMAZING.

Did you ever get those mosquito nets? Remember the trick about covering the door/window rather than you if possible. Love your third lesson learned and wish everyone could do that early on!

Um, could you post some pictures please?
It sounds like you guys are having so much fun! We miss you and can't wait to see you!

ps don't forget joey's birthday is on Jan 13. Maybe you could send her a card or something since you're missing her party.

Agreed on the AC. So so so amazing. Pretty soon you will be aclimated and you won't even notice the humidity anymore. Yeah right!
