I'm at the point in my vacation where I'm shopping for any and everything that will help me recreate my holiday experience back at home. Suddenly, I have a new wardrobe of Balinese mumus and sarongs, incense, tea, spices and recipes. It's beyond ridiculous. I had to check myself when I started pricing mosquito nets for my bed.
Nick asked if I was going to burn garbage in the yard and drive a moped around while ignoring basic western traffic rules, but I think I'll leave those things behind.
All this just to say that I have fallen in love with Bali. I can't believe I dragged my feet for so long planning this trip, wondering if it really mattered whether or not you traveled to exotic places when I was perfectly comfortable on my couch in Minnesota. Now, as I prepare to leave I'm already planning my return visit.
