So Bali for Christmas, huh?

Soooo….it looks as though I’m going to be spending Christmas 2017 in Bali! I might even treat myself if I can afford it and spend a few days in a fancy hotel or something crazy! Most of what I’ve read about spending Christmas in Bali has been primarily aimed at families.

On¬†Trip Advisor, I’ve discovered others that have done the same thing which has made me feel more confident. It looks as though I could post something on the website to see if anyone else would be around at the same time. It would be nice to have some company!


Seminyak¬†and Ubud are definitely places I want to visit. The¬†Besakih Temple¬†also looks amazing. I was thinking about going from Singapore overland to Bali. It can be done I believe (Rat & Dragon blog). It means I could really have a tour of Indonesia – stopping off in Jakarta etc. I think it would only take about 2-3 days to do the complete journey, so stopping off at places like¬†Bandung¬†and¬†Surabaya¬†will be a great way to break it up. I think I’ll have to be conscious of how much time I’m spending in each place – there’s so much to see in the world!

I think I’ll have about 2 weeks to travel from Singapore to Bali and back again. I might overland it down and then fly back up depending on how much it will cost to fly. I would only do it one way anyway.

I wouldn’t mind seeing¬†Borobodur¬†either! But not sure whether I’d be able to do everything! Sigh…more research needed I think!



Ireland and the Cliffs of Moher!

img_9537I was lucky enough to go to County Clare in Ireland over the weekend. Even though the weather was bleak and I almost got literally blown over on several occasions, the landscape was stunning. The grass was so much greener and the rolling hills looked as though they were a knitted quilt when we were surveying the countryside from the top of a hill.

The Cliffs of Moher were incredible. ¬†The gusts of wind almost blew me off them, but hey! I got a real sense of how strong Mother Nature is – definitely not a force to be reckoned with! Returned back to London with a real sense of being alive! I will go back for sure….except possibly during the summer…
