I'm Back! A Preview of Bali

Hey, all!!

Sorry for the extended break, but preparations for Bali as well as the trip itself made it pretty hard to blog. Well, I could have blogged while away, but I'm sure Husband J gets to see me do a lot of that at home. :) Since this trip was the honeymoon we never took, I wanted to make sure that we got some q-time (quality time for those of you who are not dorks like me), and we did!

Let me first say that Bali is a unique, beautiful and fascinating place. I feel like in the 9 days we were there, we only scratched the surface of what we could have seen and done. From sightseeing, to cooking, dancing and art classes, there was a lot we could have done and didn't. Insert sad face. :( It made me sad knowing that I don't know when I am going to be able to make this 24+ hour journey from New York City again, but I tried not to think about that part too much. Less than 36 hours after being back, I already miss it. Okay, well, I don't miss having to put on bug cream with DEET or brushing my teeth with bottled water, but I still had a great time!

Here's a sample of some of the things we saw and ate while there:

This is just the tip of the iceberg. More to come soon!

Looks great, looking forward to reading more about it! What is that dish in the picture after the monkey?

@Big Apple Nosh - Aaahh...that dish will most likely get its own post. It's the "Special" at Ibu Oka, a restaurant in Ubud. It is known for it's babu guling or roast suckling pig. Anthony Bourdain went there for his No Reservation: Indonesia episode. Aaahh Tony B.! :)
