Even though this was only about a week ago, it seems like AGES! So much has happened, Im already in another country and in the midst of new adventures, but lets pretend I’ve been faithfully blogging all along, shall we? 🙂
We bussed it back to Kuta from Ubud in Bali, and found our beautiful hotel, AP Inn, was under construction – hmmmm. Oh well. we decided to stay anyways. After a long, hot bus journey a trip to the pool was in order and we settled into our rooftop pool chill quite nicely, I even bought a “takeout” lunch from a local warung (food stall) and had a delicious lunch by the pool. For dinner we had Pizza Hut, and I had a new experience there – corn on my pizza. Yuck. Lol.
The next day was pretty lazy as well, with some more poolside action and a visit to the Bali Dynasty resort to hang out with our friends the Thompsons, who were in Kuta and invited us to their gorgeous resort for some volleyball and happy hour drinks! We had a wonderful afternoon with them and invited them to come and party with us at Skygarden that night. The younger ones took us up on the offer and we met up with them for FREE DRINKS. I may have had one (twelve) too many cause the next day I had my first official Bali hangover. ughhhhhh. Oh and guess what we had planned? Surfing! Ughnghghgghhhhh.
Luckily our surfer dude was way late and I had time to nap all morning, so by the time we finally hit the waves I was feeling much much better! Our instructor Ewan was a great teacher, and we both managed to get up on our boards and hit the waves, it was thrilling! I can officially say I am a surfer now – lol.
The next day Chelsea and I shopped and shopped and shopped until we were literally out of Indonesian Rupiah, we had waited until our last day to clean out our $$ supply and all the shops, too! I bought a gorgeous dress for myself and a bunch of presents as well. We boarded our flight to Manila, it was a super long, roundabout trip. But hey – it’s all part of the experience, right??
