Yesterday we flew from Singapore to Denpasar, Bali. We flew on AirAsia. Although we were a little concerned initially about the reputation of the airline it went pretty much without a hitch. I will say though that flight times seem more like a suggestion than any type of rule for them. After a 2:30 flight with more kids than the flight to Orlando, …
For our entire trip up to this point we have tried to walk as much as possible around the towns and cities we have visited. This has been partly a result of economy, partly due to wanting to avoid confusing public transportation, but mostly because we feel it gives us a flavor for the area that driving in a vehicle can't. Our strategy for today in …
Still exhausted from our trek in the sun yesterday, we decided it was time to travel in style. As previously suggested by our friends, we went online and looked up reviews for a private driver for the day to take us around to sites we had read about and wanted to see.

This morning we were spent. After all the sightseeing we finally needed a day to catch up on trip planning, blogging, Skyping family, and just napping.

We asked for a different room but unfortunately management is not as good as the rest of the staff. They didn't make it happen for us. Instead they put an air freshener in the room that was almost worse than the mould. Oh well.
