Bali Balance Retreat

Arriving at night made waking up in the morning such an overwelming experience. The view from my level of the bungalow was totally mesmerising that I'd even grabbed the camera before opening the doors to the balcony.

The food every day was unbelievalbly refreshing (no can or packet items) that I purchased a mortar & pestel which will definitely be used in my unfrequently used kitchen. Karen puts her recipies up on the Sharing Bali FB page which I know some of us have already investigated and I'm sure have enjoyed the rewards of such meals.

The pampering of a few massages was definitely what the doctor ordered. Even after the traditional balinese massage, a couple of days later during my full body massage I'm sure some knots & issues were found. I was very excited to know I was going to enjoy a bike ride since I haven't been riding for some time here but to know I was in a different country and roaming around on 2 wheels cycle style I was in heaven. Even the extra 10kms were thoroughly enjoyed and glad Maryanne joined me and was a legand on her own bike!! The yoga made me realise I need to get my pilates DVD back into play and start toning up....hell worth it even if it got the better of me. Also the tips Gabbi gave some of my fellow AWs was absolutely encouraging and felt so postitive for them....even for me in my own way. As for the meditation.....WOW......it just blew me away considering I hadn't done it before. Whether it was the fact i was in a totally different place but was well & truly overwelmbed by the whole experience. The emotions were definitely brought ot the surface but all good though. But it will depend on where you are in your life and what experiences/challenges your going through. It was such an awesome experience.

On a personal note I'd like to thank Sue from the bottom of my heart for hosting such a wondering trip. As previous mentioned anyone leading a group of known & unknown travellers would have been worrying but as always things turned out just as planned. New friends, new adventures & in some cases the start of new travel experiences was well worth the week spent in Ubud and the extra night in Legian. Oh and I never suffered Bali belly or was asked if my hair could be plaited!!

THANKS MISS SUE.....YOU'RE AN AWESOME LEADER & YOU'RE ALL THAT AW STANDS FOR!!
