Where I stayed
starting point of Sanur. We checked into the same hotel and the next day we
drove to the Bali Bird Park so Scotia could see the flamingos. I'm not sure
where she got it in her head that she was going to see flamingos in Bali as they
do not normally live here... except at the Bali Bird Park. So off we went. I'm
not really into birds and Kevin actually waited in the car (I think it was the
$25 entrance fee that put him off), but the park was really good and we got to
see lots of neat birds, bats, and butterflies and we even got to see a komodo
dragon have his bi-weekly chicken dinner
as Scotia calls them), although they were not as pink as she would have liked.
We returned our rental car to the office in Ubud, which worked out well for
Scotia and me as we were able to get in one last shopping trip in the amazing
Ubud market. We are really glad that we decided to rent a car. We got to see a
lot more of Bali than we had of if we had just hired taxis and for much less
So now we are back at the Paneeda View Beach Hotel enjoying our last days
of warm weather and sunshine, cheap beer and delicious inexpensive food. The
long, three-plane, 35 hour trip home looms before us but it was definitely worth
the journey and we are so happy that we decided to come to Bali. It is a truly
amazing place and I would recommend for everyone to visit to experience the
beauty of the island and the kindness of its people.
Thanks for sharing this journey with us.
Until our next travels,
Kevin, Brandy, Scotia and Cambria
