Dr. and Mrs. Nicholas Rety are just two of the nearly 1.5 million foreign tourists visiting Bali each year.
Flying halfway around the globe, Dr. Rety and his wife, Eva Dimitrov, regularly spend six weeks in Bali, visiting in March and September. This past March was their 17th visit to Bali where they make their home away from home the Orchid Villa at the Balihai Resort & Spa.
"This place makes me feel at home. There is no glass barrier between you and the staff. The attitude is genuine-from the heart. And I found that staying at Orchid Villa is a simple form of life. This is a perfect end of the destination, where every day is like the embrace of a loving mother," said Dr. Rety.
In December 2003, Dr. Rety, a surgeon from British Columbia, Canada, delivered surgery equipment donated by fellow Canadians in response to the Bali Bomb tragedy of 2002. As a token of what Dr, Rety says is his fond attachment to Bali's "spirit of acceptance," the Doctor is bringing more donations on his upcoming visit.
When not practicing his much-in-demand skills as a surgeon,
Dr Rety spends time gathering and re-writing personal journals and pictures to capture the experiences in life, dedicating them to his children and grandchildren. "It's like walking on the beach, you leave footprints in the sand, and if you look back at all the footprints behind you. You must leave some footprints in life." And, as you might expect, Bali plays an important role in his journals and writings, finding the island a never-ending source of inspiration.
