Smile FLY, EAT, RETREAT: Bali Re-visited....

This is another journal of the "kampung guy"....


This time he visited Bali for a 3 nights retreat....






His journey began on Friday afternoon....
The domestic lounge at Juanda Airport (SUB) so packed.... no seat to seat....

But he needed to eat something, he hasn't ate anything since he woke up that morning....

Finally he found one empty seat at the par corner.... He tucked in, and enjoyed his lunch...














It didn't take long until he boarded the plane....

It was a GA B738NG...

Ahhh.... this nice FA has reminded him with SQ's Girls... So SQ style...
That's what the female FAs should look like...(from male's perspective...)








He found the IFE in this aircraft quite attractive for a 40 minutes short hop from SUB to DPS...

Nice view of the tarmac from his 5F window...









And this is his leg room's shoot.... (I heard from some birds that he owed a lot to grand dame Jessica a.k.a. madame SQFGtm from the big city for this shoot's pose...)






So... here we go...
In no time he was already above the cloud with some nice scenery...









And he got a snack box for this very short flight....

Soon his aircraft began to descend....
Here's some shoots that he took...

That's the airport....


















Now "kampung guy"'s plane already on the ground...
But he still kept on shooting...

Rare aircraft to see here...










Got no luggage to wait, soon our "kampung guy" already at his hotel at Sanur...
He stayed there just for one night, and then moved to the other hotel on the next day...
The hotel was Mercure Sanur Resort....

The hotel complex itself was nice... a resort hotel....
But the room... that's the problem...
He booked the best room in the house, but it still look old, uncared...
The towels were so thin and old...

But other things except the room were nice....

The hotel's beach...

Before heading for "Bebek Bengil" (Dirty Duck Dining), they made a brief stop at GOA GAJAH.... a place with some Buddhist ruins and Hindu temple...
















There was a very tranquil atmosphere there.... so relaxing and beautiful....

After enjoying the tranquility of the Goa Gajah.... Our "kampung guy" ang his friend went to the infamous "Bebek Bengil"...




First floor was full, so they went to the second floor....

Second floor got a better view of the rice paddies fields....
Very nice view from there...

These are the view from the first floor....

Great TR so far! Look forward to the rest of the kampung guy's journey! It's becoming apparent to me that SQTalkers here love food pics. Need to remind myself to take more during my future travels!
