Where I stayed
The Thai Airline flight attendants on my flight over were beautiful , there dresses were a beautiful shade of pink, and they had flowers in their hair, they bowed and were so gracious! Made me feel inadequate going home to my frumpy navy blue dress at United.But I love seeing how the other airlines staff are dressed, its fun traveling on other carriers once in a while. The passengers were a combination of the resort/club crowd with their roller boards and their white linen pants, makes me even more glad that I decided to stay in small, quaint guest houses on this trip. I did see the coolest hippies coming back from bangkok with their large water guns from the Thai New Years festival , it must be a local tradition to go and reek havoc on unsuspecting tourists vacation. The hippies were the real deal, and I wish I could of been sitting closer to them to find out more of their story.Maybe they are heading up to my next destination, Ubud.
I was picked up from the airport by a driver sent from my guest house, I flew into the only airport on the main island of Bali, Den spar. The Airport is small, and is really beautifully designed with plants and gardens and outdoor sculptures. The first thing I noticed when i stepped outside was , WOW, its is hot here....my guest house here in sanur has air-con, but my guest house up in Ubud, only has a fan, but I hear its cooler up there.
My guest house is called Flashbacks, and its a small place with only 7 rooms, and i have the bungalow, with a cool outdoor style stone bathroom, and lots of character. Almost everything in Bali, is open air, and they like to bring the outdoors in, its really beautiful. I went and had a traditional Balinese massage ( Maureen, you would of loved it!) very zen place, with candles and music, only $6 US dollars!
