This was going to be our first legit traveling experience. And the first one with our two year old toddler. Our family very graciously offered to babysit, but we really wanted him to share this journey with us. We knew what this would mean. We would have to keep changing our plans and itinerary according to how the baby felt and behaved. It would mean dealing with some cranky and unreasonable moments in public. It would mean a lot of water sports and adventurous treks will be out of question. It wouldn't be all that fair to the couple who decided to travel with us. But they were such an understanding and non-complaining pair . Hence we set out to see a very wet ( it was raining) and therefore a very green Bali . And I must say we had an exhilarating and memorable week with our baby. So here's how we saw the best of this beautiful island and managed to strike a few things off my bucket list.
1. Stay with a local family
We arrived at this beautiful Balinese abode at night. I couldn't wait for the next morning to walk around and see this property. Its hard to outdo the Balinese when it comes to their arts and aesthetics.
