Travels to #Bali (video)

Diving near Nusa Pedina, east Bali.

Diving near Nusa Pedina, east Bali.

Bali is one of those places people long to visit. I didn’t. Seemed a long way to travel and a lot of money to get there.

Turned out it wasn’t as expensive as I expected, thanks in part to a 25% discount voucher from Air Canada. Glad I went, so much that I’ve got plans to return to Indonesia next year (fingers crossed).

I didn’t spend any time in the touristy areas of Ubud, Kuta and Seminyak. Here, in a nutshell are my impressions of east Bali, where I stayed:

  • Crazy driving.
  • Quiet and peaceful (when you’re away from the traffic).
  • Great scenery.
  • Friendly, helpful people (hotel, restaurant staff, scuba diving staff).
  • Beaches so-so. More rock than sand.
  • My best ever day of diving (and I’ve done nearly 200 scuba dives).

Here’s my video of some of the sights I saw:
