A Lovely view of my short stay in Bali. I was happy with my pad at this quaint place owned by an Australian couple.
The poolside was sometimes crowded during the day but I managed a picture one morning when guests were busy having their late breakfast at the cafe.
We spent the whole morning by Kuta beach and took time off just to relax and people watch.
Many pictures later, the sun was beginning to heat up, so she took a final picture of me in front of a temple like structure which was pretty much what most of Bali is famous for. Being as it is a majority Hindu island, a lot of its main tourist attractions includes beautiful temples and popular ceremonies which I will venture more into during my future trips.
The next day I was mainly on my own and had a lot of time to discover the island. I noticed there were many small narrow alleys and found a mix of small tourist stays, shops and cafes. The locals were truly friendly and even took time to pose with me.
Finally, I made my way to the beach again, this time I was convinced by a tattoo artist to get a temporary tattoo. While getting myself inked, I was also approach by peddlers who were asking me to buy items from them, it was fine until a group of 5 or 6 women came over and boy were there begging me to buy more, I bought a couple of items and waved off to continue on my walk.
After the long beach walk, I cleaned up and went shopping for things in Kuta Town, there were bags, accessories, clothes, etc along the road a few turns away from Kuta Beach, I bought a whole load of accessories and many other interesting items.
Night was near and I was starving for a good meal. My uncle’s friends took me to this place in Jimbaran which was famous for it’s seafood restaurants and yup was I in for a treat, we selected our fresh seafood and could have it prepared any way we liked, we ordered everything from fish to crabs to prawns, you name it!
While waiting for the food, I had to indulge in some local favorite Bintang beers. The restaurants in Jimbaran were all by the seaside and with my feet in the sand and Beer to keep me cool, I took to the calming view of the waves.
Finally the food arrived and we had a feast!
After dinner we went to this place away from the noisy Kuta, in the quieter side of town to this beautiful lounge called U’huu. We sat down for more chill out time and drinks.
The resident DJ came by to say hi and we had a nice night just enjoying the music. The night was simple and I had a good time.
