|How Bali tourism could be crushed by Australia’s latest restrictions?|
Happiness Goes in Cycles Like Dirty Laundry?
The only country I've visited was New Zealand's north island way back in 1977 on a 10 day football tour, when I didn't need a passport to visit.
I have never owned a passport.
I wouldn't mind going back again and taking in the south island on a trip one day, but it's not at the top of my "bucket list" at the moment.
Although it might be the only place outside of Australia open to me for the next year or two, the way things are going.Dates with Destiny?
I've never really been interested in going to Bali until I heard about the Ubud Writers Festival, and read about Ubud in 'Eat Pray Love' where Liz Gilbert seemed to be based when writing about Bali in the "Love" part of her book.
When I was reading about the history of Bali as told by Liz Gilbert in her book, I was hoping that sometime in the near future that someone like Richard Fidler would write a book all about the small island of Bali and its history.Icelandic Sagas and Synchronicity?

Although maybe not enough for me to get my ass on a plane and actually visit the place, like my youngest son has.
The Bali bombings turned me off going to Bali, and my son was over there in Bali when I met Hanabeth Luke and read her excellent book 'Shock Waves' -Surfing the Wine Syncs
I wish I had the drive to visit places like Bali like my son and my old mate HalfaSheep, but I can't see myself going there anytime soon, if at all in this lifetime.
But who knows, right?-)
Halfasheep in Bali?
But then again who knows, right?-)And I never did end up buying a copy of 'Salad Days' either -
