JBR part 1


Firstly I must thank everyone on this site for the valuable information that was contributed to make our holiday so memorable.I had not visited bali for ten years and this was the first visit for my husband and five year old son.

We were so pleased with all three hotels we stayed in .The first being Puri Rajah.The trip over with Jetstar was uneventful and I was quite pleased with my organisational skills directing hubby to the immigration line while I payed VOA Forty five minites later we were in our room at Puri Rajah.This is when I realised I may not have been so organised when I open our bag and saw it wasnt our bag.I had picked up an identical bag to ours not even thinking to check the name tag.Anyway lesson learnt and thankfully this was the only hiccup on our whole trip.

Our time in legian was spent mainly shopping and eating.We were lucky enough to spend Nypei in Bali My son was in ore of the parade on the eve of Nypei .The Baliense are so creative The huge figures were amazing and we enjoyed seeing different ones as we travelled around .It was a wonderful excperience enjoyed by all.The next day was spent relaxing by the pool.To be continued.......

Oh dear...perhaps a distinguishable luggage tag or a bright ribbon might be in order.

Was your luggage still at the Airport & was there another unhappy camper waiting for you?
