|view from restaurant in Ubud|
There didn't seem so many people about in 2009 but last weekend it felt almost claustrophobic. The main tourist area of Kuta was crawling with tourists and the once quiet area of Seminyak was now bulging at the seams with new restaurants and hotels on every corner.
|rent the land?|
After the bombings, people stayed away from Bali and it affected everyone's livelihood . Things started to get better and now Bali has become one of the "must do" destinations. The place for everyone to come looking for their eat pray love moment.
I know that with the tourists flocking back into Bali and all the new hotels opening up, it is good for the Balinese economy.
|good quality plumbing........St Regis Bali|
I guess if I had pots of money I would buy my own island and build a fabulous villa with good quality plumbing and nothing else on the island.
But that of course is just a dream.....like the rest of the world I have to jostle and fight my way to work each day and when on holiday we cram every bit of free time with forced relaxation on tranquil island havens that are fast disappearing.
Chasing the sunrise on whatever island retreat we go to, and posting it on facebook, instagram, or twitter or what ever social media that is the current hype.
I sound bitter....and I think I probably am. tired of the rat race and hamster existence....
Oh for a a simple life......................
