What a night. Tom was up all night with an upset stomach. Best guess is the milkshake that he had for dinner was probably off. That will be the last milkshake he'll be having for a while I think. He was good enough to regale us all with the gory details of the nights events -stories that I won't even repeat to a priest. Luckily for me he chose to wake mum for medical assistance and Emily for the use of her phone so he could use the flashlight function to find a bottle of water. Consequently everyone was very tired this morning - yours truly being the possible exception. We arranged for breakfast to be had in the villa today.

I'll let you work out ... read more

It's been very exciting to plan and anticipate this trip together But finally the day arrived where we actually got in the taxi and headed to the airport. It's 40 degrees in Adelaide at the moment so the thought of escaping the heat for a short while is very appealing. Anyway, flight was uneventful. Smooth with barely any turbulence. Flying time is about 5 hours so much better than the 24 hour slog to Europe. I was surprised when we flew over Bali at just how dense the housing is. It was rooftops as far as I could see. Very green but buildings everywhere. When we landed we headed to the immigration counters and managed to find ourselves at the front of the line which was a nice change. I'm normally at the back of a ... read more
