I’m in Bali

After more than 40 hours in transit, including an Uber ride, two 10 hour flights, a night at the Airport Hotel in Doha, a very short stay in a hotel in Seminyak, Bali, several taxi rides, 2 hours on a boat, a terrible sunburn, and one ride in a horse-drawn carriage, we are finally on […]
