We just returned from Bali, Indonesia! This is our last family trip before we head back to the States in less than two weeks. It is hard to believe our adventures are winding down.
We decided to skip the beach and head for central Bali which is known for its rice paddies and temples.
We stayed at the Amandari Resort. It was absolutely lovely. Here is a view of the paddies outside our back door.
The Amandai was so peaceful. The resort decorated villas of honeymooners with special flags and flowers. We were surrounded by young starry-eyed lovers. Hopefully our spirited children did not set back their family plans for too long.
Even though the hotel had a quite romantic feel, the staff was quite welcoming to the kids. Local children daily practiced dance and preformed for the guests. The hotel actively preserves and encourages the local culture which is wonderful.
Here Aidan and Sydney try to get into the act.
…and Sydney in her favorite water spot the outdoor bathtub where she can make all the bubble mess she wanted without getting into trouble.
I look forward to sharing more of this magical place.
