DAY 1Albeit the rainy season my friend Ben and I decided to head to Bali for two weeks just before Christmas. Obviously you never know when the next tropical storm might roll in and we were lucky enough to have a window of perfect weather. Now I’m in England and Ben is in New Zealand and so we met at Ngurah Rai International Airport in the capital, Denpasar. One thing to note is that if any travel agencies tell you that you can’t fly from Gatwick, well it simply isn’t true and when I was searching, Emirates offered the best prices from there. Also, the prices often jump up and down, when they go up it doesn’t necessarily mean they will continue to rise so don’t believe everything you hear!
