Here I am. In beautiful Bali in the most perfect hotel room for editing photos and writing. Is a lovely palace like room it’s just that it has a bad mobile reception in the rooms. And maybe that’s what I need? To take a back from internet and social media? Just like one of my all time favorite bands sang, “You can’t always get what you want, you get what you need”. Also realized that standing in the corridor with my computer on the railing is quite a good work position, like a stand up desk, although it’s a bit dangerous since I have to be careful not to let the computer slide off the railing and fall down to the concrete floor one level below.
Anyhow, I really love it here. Took a lot of work to get here, probably spent 20 hours on paperwork. Did my 2 nights and 3 days of quarantine at a very nice hotel in Uluwatu, of which I slept a big part of the time. Then stayed at another great hotel in Nusa Dua where I was only supposed to stay for two nights but ended up staying 6 nights. At least, that’s how many nights I think I stayed. Have been letting the days go by without having to strict plans, more of a general idea about what I want to do. Feels like this is the place where I’m supposed to be and that I’ve got plenty of time. Have been watching some surfing but not taken any photos yet. But I know some I’m going to take.
The thing is, which I sometimes feel guilty about, that you can stay at amazing hotels for a very good price. I would normally not stay at this kind of hotels but now, when there are few tourists here, you can get good deals. And still, the hotels are giving you the same good service and food as if it was busy season.
And, since I posting this from my phone, all of these photos are taken with it too. Just a brief of what I’ve been up to, mainly eating, sleeping, and swimming.
