Week One in Bali

A Few Pictures and Thoughts from My First Week in Bali

Sorry I have been offline for a while, but I spent a week in hospital in Thailand and then more than another week holed up in a hotel recuperating as an outpatient before I was fit to travel again. I will write a short summary of those events later, but meanwhile, I have moved to Bali until December 24th when I go to Sri Lanka. I have been in Bali nearly a week now and loving it. Scuba and Surfing here have been amazing fun and will definitely be doing more in the coming days at differing locations on the island.
Sunset from the hotel...

Bird of Paradise - gorgeous flowers here!
Learning to surf -  saw someone pull off a headstand on the board so thought I would try it too...

Learning to surf - in Kuta
Finally feeling well enough to exercise and practice yoga again. Mayurasana at the infinity pool..

Getting into Scorpion on my towel. Struggling with this one since being sick though...
One of the things I am happy about is regaining the ability to exercise and practice yoga again after being sick for so long. Still weak and I think it'll take a while to regain everything, but it feels wonderful to be active once more.
I am surprised but I have been experiencing real issues with Internet speed and connectivity here that has made communications and blog posts a little challenging. It might be the specific location or something else, but I am hoping I'll be able to post more stuff more often than I have of late. There are so many fun things to do here and lots to explore. I didn't have an underwater camera earlier so wasn't able to post pictures from the scuba diving, but finally found a place near Denpasar where I purchased one. It looks decent and once I get the hang of it, I am hoping to get some images from the next scuba sessions as well as snorkeling. The marine life and underwater geography here is gorgeous. Til next time...
