This was Jonny's first time to Bali and our first time to Taipei. We walked, we surfed, I yoged (Bikram Yoga Bali), we scooted, we went to Andrea's wedding, and we had a lot of time to hang out together. And we still like each other a lot.. maybe even more... hahaha...
This is the day before we flew. We were drinking beers and eating chicken wings on Robson street. The sky was stormy and it rained shortly after. I remember getting an e-mail from my mom about them having really bad storms in Langley. It had been a really crappy two weeks that didn't feel or look anything like July. It was time to go!
These are the shirts we made to bring our friends in Bali.
These are the first two beers that we had on the flight. Our plane left at the 2am and we figured we could get some beer in the airport before we left but there was nothing open. These were good beers. Soon after, I fell asleep and Jonny was able to procure 5 more.
We made it to Taipei Airport. Tired. We had about five hours here.. if I remember correctly. Here is what we did:
We had one more shorter flight to Bali and when we got there we had Bintangs!
My foot was really, really swollen after the flights. On the way back I took my socks and shoes off and I had no swelling! This picture is so gross!! I actually had put my sock halfway around my foot on the second flight because my ankle was getting fat but this just squished all the swelling to my toes. It felt so weird.
Dewa picked us up at the airport but Andrea wasn't with him. She was in Signapore. We saw them the next day at Roma. YAY!
I needed a haircut and got a BIG one for 5 bucks. I guess it wasn't in the cards for me to grow my hair. I have yucky long hair anyways.
This is the inside of our home... where we lived for a month. It was the first time that I lived in the garden instead of living with the family.
This is the view from our patio.
Jonny not going into the turtle.
Jonny kissing the turtle. This turtle is home to many baby turtles.
This was my favourite Nasi Campur! YUM! And notice the turtle shaped rice.. how can you not like that?
The view from the ferry - looking back where we came from.
Wayan, Yeoman, and myself.
It is always sad when we it is time to leave Bali. At least we had one more mini vacation left. We had a stop over in Taipei for 5 days. It was the only way to get the cheap tickets!!
This is our hotel!! It had hot water, TV, and a buffet with all you can drink beer! We spent a lot of time in the hotel thanks to the steamy, humid heat.
The first morning we got up and followed the hotel map around. We found McDonalds and I got a shrimp burger. The best thing about McDonalds is the air conditioning! I really can't believe how much I am advertising McDonalds and how much we went. I guess this is what happens when you get married.. you have to eat at McDonalds? hahaha...
More park shots... This park was right across the street from our hotel.
Rollerblading rink - speed skating?? In the park.
We have a fridge!!!
You can drink beer in the Family Mart. It is also air conditioned. We had eight hours to waste between when we had to leave our hotel and when our flight left. We went and saw Final Destination 5 (which was all filmed in Vancouver), drank at the Family Mart, and then we ate the dinner buffet back at the hotel.
They sell everything at the Family Mart. I got Hello Kitty CD's for school and a car charger kit for Ipods and other USB charging devices. We collected so many stickers that I got to choose a Astro Boy doll puzzle to put together. Fun!
Our hotel servers. The female was trying to steal my husband!! I am pretty sure she is going to crop this picture!! Oh well... BYE TAIPEI!!!
I hope you enjoyed our trip. I know we did. We are both looking forward to going back to Bali.. not so much Taipei (and it isn't because of the girl trying to steal my husband - it is the heat.. I swear!)
