Where did the time go? It went to traveling, of course. I realized just recently how hard it is to travel and write about it immediately. That’s why this new post took so long. As in 4 months. I’ve been to 6 countries in the last four months. It took a toll on my health that I was sick for a month and a half after Vietnam. But I’m not here to talk about my health. I’m here to talk about our adventure which started in Bali last March.
I had been postponing this Bali trip for as long as I can remember mainly because of one horror story I’ve read online about women traveling to Indonesia. So it took guts and a lot of planning just so we won’t encounter the same fate. And boy did we enjoy Bali! So much that I can’t wait to go back and stay a week, and in a villa, which is the appropriate thing to do when in Bali.
We stayed at the Dash Hotel in Seminyak. It is a fairly new hotel. Barely a year old. Everything is spic and span. Service is efficient and friendly plus it has a pool and a roofdeck bar. You can watch the sunset here every night and not get tired of it. The room is very un-hotel like. Reminds me of The Henry in Cebu. Colorful. Modern. Quirky. Fun. Industrial but not lacking the in the comfort department. Bed is comfy as can be expected. Air-conditioning works which is a must in a beach town such as Seminyak. Flat screen TV, mini bar and all the amenities are provided. Factor that all in, you would think staying here would cost an arm and a leg. No! It’s very affordable. Just under 3000 PHP a night. And it’s very near Potato Head Beach Club, Motel Mexicola and all the other cool restaurants and cafes in our itinerary.
