First two days in Bali

I’m currently sat in our villa in Seminyak blogging on my phone – how very novel! Because of this I’ll only be able to share a few quick phone pictures of our honeymoon in Bali initially but I thought I’d pop a quick post up to share some of the things we’ve been up to so far!

We arrived on Wednesday night after 25 hours of travelling – including stops at Amsterdam and Singapore. We were definitely glad to get to our hotel, and after a quick dinner we retired to bed. Our villa has a little private pool in it but the pool itself was a little too chilly for a nighttime dip!


The next day we set out for an explore around Seminyak. We went to the Potato Head Beach Club for cocktails and lunch and whiled an afternoon away watching the surf.



We did some more exploring and shopping and stopped at Earth Café for smoothies.


We then retired back to our hotel for a dip in the pool and a bit of chill time. It’s been about 30•C the whole time we’ve been here and very humid, so pool time is very needed!

Our hotel also does an afternoon tea between 5-6pm – the green tea is amazing, and the cakes were pretty special too…


In the evening we went back out to where all the restaurants and bars are and had club sandwiches and beers and ciders at Soho before heading back to the hotel.

This morning we woke up and went straight to the spa for massages. After 18 hours on planes I’d been feeling pretty stiff, so a massage was just what the Doctor ordered. After that we took a taxi up to Batu Bolong beach in Canggu. We walked along the beach for some time before stopping at Old Man’s Club for Bintangs (Tom) and Alders Ciders (me).



We then walked along up to Echo Beach, stopping for a swim on the way (I got knocked over by the big waves and grazed my leg, I was not prepared for how strong the undercurrent was!) We wandered around Echo Beach for a bit before stopping for a late lunch.


On the way back we met a little puppy! I wanted to smuggle him home in my backpack but he belonged to some builders on a nearby construction site.

We then caught a taxi back to our hotel just as the sun was starting to set.


We have a few more days in Seminyak before we head down to Jimbaran on Monday. I think the next few days might well hold more pool time, more spa time, more eating and more drinking! Well, what else are you supposed to do on honeymoon?

PS – As I mentioned – all photos are from my phone and edited on VSCO Cam; I have my SLR with me so I’ll have lots more photos to share when I’m home (if you’re not bored of Bali by then!)
