That's how I feel these days. Yesterday, three people showed up to clean my room! Now I'm a pretty neat person - I sleep on my side of the bed and the other side remains neat as a pin (if Ron's not there); I put my clothes away at the end of the day; hang up my towel; keep my toiletries together...and still, they sent three people to tidy up after me.

Lovina is a bit of a strange spot... Perhaps it would seem different if there were more tourists... I estimate there are at least 5 staff to every guest in the Balyualit Resort, where I'm currently staying. This means I have 3 different people serve me at meals, sometimes delineated by course; sometimes by function, with one carrying the food and another moving it from the tray to the table.

After soaking up the flames, we started to make our way back out of the crater, this time in complete darkness. It was just as tough as ...
Lovina has been a bit of a disappointment for us. We had booked a room in a private villa, via airbnb, which was not too far from the beach, restaurants and shops. But we don't really like the atmosphere of the town and sellers can be quite aggressive as there are not many tourists around at this time of the year.
My best memory will remain our first night, even if it could sound quite awful! We went to have dinner in a restaurant near the beach. ...
