David has never been travelled overseas - apart from short visit to Australia. So I want him to enjoy his first visit to Indonesia.
I had been trying to get cheap tickets for a long time, and finally the opportunity came last January. I booked two return tickets from Auckland to Denpasar in September, for half the normal price.
It will be David's first visit, and my first trip back to Indonesia after more than four years living in New Zealand. We will stay in Bali for a week and then spend another week in Jakarta. My best friend lives in Bali and the most importantly Bali will be a good transition for David to immerse into Indonesian life. Almost everyone in Bali can speak English fluently, so there won't be any communication problems for him since his Bahasa Indonesia is limited to: Selamat datang (welcome), terima kasih (thank you) and sampai jumpa (see you later).
I am planning our trip in Bali, with help from: my best friend Ratih, tripadviser, and google, I managed to compile an initial plan - see attached file below. I have so many things I want to do in Bali, mainly outdoor adventures and trying different restaurants. Unfortunately due to a limited time and money I can only choose a few things from my list.
I had so much fun planning our trip. I could imagine myself lying on the sand on Bali beaches, swimming in the warm sea water, enjoying seafood on the beach, and watching the sun setting on the horizon. Follow me for updates on our trip to Indonesia.
