We spent every day in Nusa Dua in one of these bales (pronounced ballet) overlooking the beach. It was a great way to quickly recover from the jet lag!
This was our view from our villa terrace. Everyday we watched the monkeys play in the ravine. It was spectacular!
I have to say, the highlight of my trip was a chance meeting with Ketut Liyer, the Balinese healer, famous from the book Eat, Pray, Love. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures, but I do have his business card. He still says "Happy to meet you" and "See you later, alligator" to this day.
My photos and descriptions hardly do Bali any justice. It was breathtakingly beautiful, intimately hospitable and astonishingly magical all rolled into one. Definitely the trip of a lifetime.
