Thanks to you, dear K2, I will be leading the stampede. Wanna meet me there?
I am determined to return to Southeast Asia this year, but the big question is when and where. I will almost certainly use my "retired airline employee" standby tickets and will stick to the main cities in that case to simplify transportation. However, Qatar, Etihad and Emirates are offering such good fares out of Europe at certain times that I might even buy a "real" ticket.
Thank you Questa for adding your photos and insight. You and K2 have me convinced me that I should press ahead with my plans to visit this Summer. I just need to convince my manager to let me take 3 weeks of my total annual leave together rather than the usual maximum of 2
Temples and rice fields and markets, oh my! Beautiful photos, K and Questa. I'm jealous because I came thiiiis close to going to Bail. I actually booked tickets at a pretty good price but had to cancel them and pay a fee because of work. So Bali for me is the one that got away. Hopefully I'll get there one day. I'll be sure to keep my distance from the monkeys.
Looking forward to seeing Lugg's trip report next.
