This is the longest hiatus I’ve ever taken since starting this blog – it has been almost 3 months since I last posted. It started with a very eventful trip to Bali where we literally had to evacuate because of an erupting volcano – but more on that later. When we got back, it was the holiday season and I went to Canada for 3 weeks to spend time with my family. Shortly after that, my mom fell and broke her leg and needed emergency surgery, so I went back to Canada for a few more weeks. Between all that craziness, my first month of 2018 somehow completely disappeared into an abyss – but now I am back!
I hope you’re still around because I am excited to share with you about our experiences in Bali – the good, the bad, and of course all the funny memorable stories. Bali is a truly stunning place, not lacking in Instagram-worthy photo ops. Even with all the rain, we couldn’t stop taking pictures of everything from the lush rice fields to the intricate temples. The people of Bali are kind and friendly, and we were lucky to have met and called many of them our friends.
