2 days in Bali: Day 1

“3 days in Bali?” I hear you ask.  Who stays in a gorgeous place like this for only 3 days?!!

Gili Trawangan Island

It’s always with a little sadness that I’m sitting here on the last day for this location in the gorgeous sunny Island of Gili T, Indonesia. A short 3-day visit, flying in from Brisbane, Australia and staying 1 night in Bali and then transferring from Padang Bai to Gili T via fast boat to meet…

One of the first stops we made was at a…

Rarotonga, Cook Islands
