I stayed here for a week and the resort is very beautiful. Lovely villas, multiple swimming pools and bales to relax in, good food, day spa and a daily shuttle service. My only complaint is that they moved me from one villa to another in the middle of my stay without consultation - they need to manage their bookings a little better!
The staff were the best part of my visit. Gede, the head barman, makes some wicked cocktails and is very entertaining. Rum drove me wherever I wanted to go and was a source of a lot of information. Ketut was also very helpful, organising tours and advising me on places to try local cuisine.
Because it's not owned by locals, I'm not sure that I'd stay there again. It's a civil rights issue for me, more than the quality of my stay. But I would definitely like to see my new friends again, so maybe...

... none of them. One seems to organically roll into another. Referring and intermingling into a beautiful melting pot of literature and photography. They are, in no particular order:
* Vagabonding - Rolf Potts
* Walden - Henry David Thoreau
* The Power of Habit - Charles Duhigo
* The New Gypsies - Iain McKell
There's a definite theme there, I know. And it was Vagabonding that made me want to read Walden again. But who doesn't want to read Walden ...
... Small roads rammed with cars and mopeds were trimmed with the most tacky shops of all time. They sold every counterfeit and dodgy item you could ever wish for. Fake sunglasses, watches, hats, bags, shoes. They filled the stores. Every store contained exactly the same thing. They should have just had one. When we had lost all hope of arriving at our hotel and when I was actually starting to doubt it existed we arrived. Our driver seemed relieved but was ...
After seeing many signs for McDelivery it seemed like the time was right and it couldn't be any easier. Well, the ordering by phone part was definitely more challenging than expected, but in the end something resembling an understanding was reached. Twenty minutes later, a teenager pulled up on his raggedy scooter, opened up the big red cooler in the back and handed over the familiar brown bag in exchange for a few ...
... Guess and other name that mean nothing to me. With out a doubt the best surf shop iv ever been to is located in Seminyak square "The Drifter" not your usual commercial surf shop, full to the rafters with single and double fins. A great vibe and some fantastic one of a kind items and an amazing coffee shop to boot. I did get a bit carried away a buy a guitalele (not the last time I would put my hand in my pocket in Bali) after 6 weeks of being away from home and rugby. We finally found ...
... on-coming traffic and skirt around the vehicle at the last minute.. If someone decides they want to do a u-turn at any of the breaks in the divider, then that's what they do.. and hell, it is up to the oncoming cars to get out of their way. There was one intersection that we got to and I had no idea how it even worked! Everyone seemed to just go whatever way they wanted and kept cutting one another off. The driver explained it to me, ...
