    A terrific Balinese food day

    February 26 in Indonesia

    There is so much interesting food in Bali. Today’s lunch focused on Duck: spring rolls, fried duck and smoked duck. Mid afternoon ice cream: passion fruit sorbet and ginger gelato. Dinner: corn fritters with lime peel, gado gado (fresh vegetables with peanuts), fried local chicken and a delicious fish curry. Lucky I walked 5 miles today.

  • Day28

    Shit, this coffee is delicious

    March 1 in Indonesia

    Bali is famous for Luwak coffee, unique to the island. Luwaks (also known as mongoose) eat the ripe red coffee berries. They shit them out whole , they are collected, cleaned and the coffee bean from the berry is then roasted. The coffee has a unique taste - no, not like you think. It’s very good (and very expensive).

  • Day31

    Balinese temples

    March 4 in Indonesia

    Bali is a very spiritual place. Religion is very important to the people. They practice a unique form of Hinduism. Each family compound has its own small shrine. Every village has a temple that is the center of community life. Time has stood still here in many ways. One person we met lives in a village with no electricity.

  • Day40

    Mt. Batur erupted in 1968 (and again in 2000). There are 2 calderas, which are stunning. Lake Batur is enormous and has hot springs to soak in, overlooking the lake and volcano. With insane traffic in Bali and narrow, winding roads it took about 2 1/2 hours to get there and even longer to get back because of road closures for village ceremonies. But it was definitely worth it!

  • Day41

    Ceremony day in Bali

    March 14 in Indonesia

    While Indonesia is primarily Muslim, Bali is Hindu with a very Balinese flavor. There are countless ceremonies throughout the year. Saturday is New Years Day (more about that in an upcoming post) and leading up to it, there are major ceremonies. Today, especially. In each area, hundreds and sometime thousands of people march to the local temple. Traffic which is always horrendous becomes a total gridlock. It was a special privilege to be here to see the procession. The last photo is of an ogo ogo, which I’ll talk about in the Nyepi post.Read more

    Day 2 Vila Lumbung Seminyak

    February 21 in Indonesia

    Pretty uneventful day today , Siobhan recommended a 3 part series I had downloaded & ended up watching the whole lot until 1 am last night in bed so I therefore missed breakfast as slept in 😂...no message off my husband today ...had to chase him up ! 😢, spent all day at the pool .... followed by Balinese massage late afternoon ...tans coming along nicely, although I’m worried I’m going to be a silly colour by the end of this trip 😳😂Read more

  • Day5

    I’m still here ! Jules nagging me to keep this blog up but there’s only so much you can write about laying on your fat arse all day !
    Weather has been tropical, ( as in pissing down on & off ) but lots of sunshine in between .

    It’s very quiet here this time, I haven’t found anyone to harass & give a cheery hello & have a yip with .... not spoken to anyone for days 😂
    Lots of Australian Bogans here ( that’s an Ozzie Chav if you don’t know )

    So in my Christmas stocking off jules I had various travel accessories.....including a travel bath plug ! ...I took the piss as you can imagine for him
    Buying such a thing .... however on arrival here I saw I had a lovely outdoor bath ....& guess what was missing ...yep the plug 😂😂😂so I stand corrected ...such a handy thoughtful pressie after all ( as usual with jules )

    Ive got cockroaches in my Bathroom & lizards in my room ....so I’m stuffing pillows against the bathroom door so something can’t slither or crawl underneath from the outdoor bathroom 🐍🐍🐍🐍🐍😱

    I bought a bottle of vodka in duty free on Sunday & have barely touched it ! ...the only diet mixer available here is Diet Coke & I’m not fussed on that much so have detoxed a bit, probably wise with my imminent arrival to Australia with the beautiful wineries .
    On that note I will probably wait until I get to Australia & meet Michelle before I update this again ...as I say there’s nothing going on here ...which maybe why I love it here so much but don’t want to bore you 😂👍

    Sometimes....

    February 24 in Indonesia

    You just have to be a tourist. That was dinner tonight. Apologies to vegetarians. The restaurant is aptly named “Hog Wild”.

    4. päev- tööpäev

    January 9, 2017 in Indonesia

    Kuna mul on kell juba päris ōhtu siis on aeg uueks 👣.
    Eile ei jäänud jälle kuidagi magama, rähklesin voodis oma lina vahel. Mingi asi teeb täpselt sellist häält nagu saumikser- algul laseb vaikse kiirusega puuviljad katki ning siis hoiab täiega peal, et kōik sodiks läheks... vaevalt et keegi nüüd smuutisid meisterdab, pigem mingi eluvana boiler teeb seda häält vms. 🙄

    Hommikul ärkasin nagu kord ja kohus ning hakkasin tööd tegema (kell 9)... kohe teen speedtesti, vaatan kui kiires see nett siin on... trummipōrin... 8 mega alla ja 1,9 ülesse. Aga see toimis tundivalt paremini kui eelmise koha oma. Arveid ja muud kraami oli ka vähem, aga maksuametis lasi ilusti toimetada. Päris tüütu oli lōpuks oodata, millal teised Eestis tööle tulevad 🙈 kirjutasin neile Skypes kōik tekstid valmis, aga keegi ei vastanud ☹️Aga sellegi poolest läheb kell siin ruttu. Ilmselt ka tänu sellele, et pimedaks läheb nii vara (mitte, et Eestis praegu üldse valget aega oleks).

    Viie aeg lōpetasin teiste piinamise oma küsimustega ja läks randa, jälle seda suurepärast loojangut vaatama. No täna oli juba suts rohkem näha, aga rahvast poole vähem... tööpäev ilmselt/äkki?! Kōht oli mega tühi ja otsustasin oma maja vastas olevale turuplatsile vōimaluse anda. Tundsin, et sealt tuleb mingit toidulōhna... Tüübid valmistasid nö väliköögis putka taga tüüpilisi roogasid. Nuudlid ja riis ja erinevad asjad sinna juurde. Kuna tüdrukud saatasid eile pilte ja rääkisid tervislikust toitumisest, siis ma vōtsin täna riisi juurviljade ja mereandidega. Neid viimaseid ma küll väga ei näinud nagu Dvigateli pastas tomateid. 😄Toit serveeriti plast-taldrikul, muidu on ikka mingi papp ka alla pandud, aga seekord mitte. Loodan, et mu organism peab ikka vastu sellele. Homme vaja hakata planeerima juba edasiminekut.

    Käisin veel raha välja vōtmas, ma tundsin, et kui mul on miljon raha sullis taskus siis nagu ei olekski midagi... nüüd on kohe parem tunne 😅 vōtsin veel ööseks suur vee ja täna patustasin ka veits. (Vōin öelda, et Snickers ei maitse siin hästi)

    Täna olen oma korruse peal üksi. Tsillin rōdul, all pererahvas teeb oma toimetusi- kiigutavad lapsi ja teevad süüa. Esimest korda nägin suuuuri hiiri. Kui te näete elektrijuhtmeid siis hiired jooksid mööda neid ülesse. Praegu on ka veits kōhe siin istuda, hoian jalgu igaks juhuks üleval 🐭

    Nüüd peaks veits veel tööd tegema, et arved jōuaksid ikka Eesti ōhtuks kohale 😄
