My Bali Dream Holiday

As soon as we leave the aircraft it begins, the awakening of my senses. I feel the warmth, I smell the sweet perfume of flowers and incense and I feel as if I have come home after a long journey. I first visited this Island Paradise over twenty years ago. When it was time for me to leave, I knew I was leaving a part of my heart behind.

We leave the airport behind, we drive through the colourful streets of the city where small stalls and large buildings stand side by side. I wish we could stop and shop for some of the beautiful handicrafts they have on show.

Now we drive out into the countryside, through small villages, the children in their neat school uniforms walk hand in hand, smiling and waving to us as we pass.

"Look" I cry out to my husband, a procession is passing by. The men in their sarongs and shirts are playing musical instruments and the women have huge baskets of fruit that they carry so elegantly on their heads. I wish we that we could get out and join them.

Up into the hills we go passing emerald green rice terraces, far down below in a valley a very old man is working with his water buffalo, carrying on his age old profession of rice farming, I wish we could stop and talk to him.

On the side of the road monkeys play, free and happy, no bars here to separate them from us.

Finally we arrive at our destination, a beautiful hotel with glorious tropical gardens. Here we will spend our holiday and from here we shall go out and do all the things I wished that I could do today.

Someone is shaking me gently, "wake up" my husband says. You had such a beautiful smile on your face, where were you, he asks. I will give you one clue I reply, "I was in on holiday". My husband smiled, "you were in Bali". "Yes" I replied, I wish it wasn't a dream, I wish I really was in Bali.
