The Bali Dream

Whenever I need to get inspired in work I locate myself in a different area of our building. Sometimes I need to get away from my desk for an hour or so… Cyber land numbs my mind a little sometimes. I headed to what I think is my favorite area in our building in terms of inspiration –  The store display and the  Fp one area. I sat on the floor looking through the beautiful collection of books there.

I came across books on Bali and thoughts of my travels came following back to me…

I traveled to Bali in the summer of 2009 for a couple of months and got completely caught up in its culture and lived and breathed the experience there. I traveled with one back pack, we hired a scooter with a surf board attached to the side and explored the island that stretches 3,000 miles from east to west and is home to 200 million people.

Here’s a little glimpse of what I experienced in Bali – it gave me the chills pulling these from my facebook album.

 A Sunday offering on a beach which finished with everyone dancing and clapping in the ocean. A rice field in Ubud, a shack draped in beautiful dyed scarves, a bungalow where we stayed, the breathtaking sun set that we watched from our window before we went to eat fresh grilled fish on the beach, a crafts market, long beach walks, perfect sets of waves. Night drives on the back of a scooter trying to find places to stay at night.

 The place will remain a strong thought in my mind always.
