There will be A LOT more Jayakarta in Legian to the beach and our favourite beach bar, Jerry’s. My parents would drink their Bintang and I would sneakily bring down my Midori and lemonade concoction in a water bottle as Bintang just doesn’t do it for me – don’t hate me. Plus when you buy Midori from duty-free you need to drink it up and drink it fast.posts coming soon as I have been fortunate enough to travel to the island paradise five times. But for now here is my Bali taster and a glimpse of one of my favourite things: Bali sunsets. Every afternoon at five o’clock on the dot my parents and I would walk the four minutes from our apartment at
Sitting at Jerry’s we would chat to our friends Harry, Mary and Christine who sell goods on the beach. We’d buy too many presents for ourselves and friends back home, but it’s worth it to support them and their families. We talk to Nyoman and Wayan who own the bar and I would fall in love with Nyoman Jr. I mean, just look at the cute kid having a look at elephants on my dad’s video camera. He was just so cute, giggling at the video.
We’d say “no thanks” twenty times a night (that is not an exaggeration, just saying) to other locals selling wares. All the while we would stare out at the ocean and watch the glorious sun set over the water. As the sun descends over the crashing waves you can see planes arrive and I always think to myself, “Welcome to Bali. Enjoy your stay” to the people on the planes.
I know a lot of people have differing opinions on Bali, but I love it. I love the people, the food, the friends you make, the scenery and of course the purchases. Plus Bali sunsets aren’t too ugly to look at, either.
