Throw Back Week – October Break 2016 in Bali, Indonesia

You would think that when you live on a tropical island you wouldn’t go on vacation to another (even smaller) tropical island… but come on it’s BALI.

It was not our first time in Bali but we had just moved to Singapore a couple months before and it was an easy solution for our October break…. and come on it’s BALI.

We opted however to get away from the touristy part of the island around Seminyak and go to the East of the island around Amed. It’s more well known for the great diving than the fine sand beach. However they have black sand beach thanks to being close to Mount Aging, Bali’s largest volcano plus the drive among the rice fields is well worth it.

We also stop, on our way back, for a couple day in Ubud. It’s is known as a center of traditional crafts and dance and in the last few years has become a little hipster.

On a side note: while in Ubud we rented diving equipment from the shop near our hotel and one of the receptionist happened to be French…. from my little 1000-inhabitant village in France. How wild!! I didn’t know her she is way younger than me and she arrived after I had moved to the states but my cousins knew her! #TheWorldIsASmallPlace.

Just an reminder: Inspired by the Throw Back Thursday of our summer vacation I did in July and August and since we cannot travel again during this October Break, I’ve decided to revisit the idea with a Throw Back Week of our trips around Asia during school vacation for the past 6 years. It’s not because we cannot physically travel that we cannot at least escape in our head.  Enjoy the others it’s a chance to discover old postings 😉
