Day 2: In and around Kuta in Bali, Indonesia

We woke up pretty late in our beautiful hotel room in Kuta area in Bali, Indonesia. This is one thing I found amazing about Bali; really awesome hotels at a very low price! No wonder this is a honeymoon destination for many, I thought. Since we got up late, going far from day trips was […]

Day 11: The ‘foreigner’ tag in Indonesia

The day started at the airport waiting in a queue for our visa on arrival. Again, as in Thailand, we got the visa stamped in a few minutes. As we had informed before, our hostel lady was waiting outside the airport. It was just 40,000 Indonesian Rupiah for the pick up from airport. Yeah, that […]
