Sue, sue15357@hotmail.com, from North East Linconshire, England is this week's featured entry in the Bali Dream Holiday Contest.

THIS IS BALI

The aroma of Frangipani. The tropical greenery of Coconut and sugar palms. Rays of the morning sun bounce off the crystal blue ocean as it makes its way to the palm fringed golden beach.

The haunting sound of the gamelan fills the air with its spiritual sound, infectious to the soul. The laughter of children gleefully waving, smiling as they make their way to school through the village streets.

This is Bali.

Today Tanah Lot, a majestic temple sitting in the blue waters of the Ocean, waves crashing against her rocks where Balinese men sit to guard their temple from evil spirits, weaving coconut leaves to fill with offerings and sweet fragrances to give to their gods. The air is filled with the incense carried by the warm breeze.

Walking through the endless stalls, local people selling their colourful handicrafts. From birth to the day of their death, these beautiful people are blessed with creativity and artistic design. From the children and their bright coloured paintings, to the elders eye for fine detail when carving wood into collectors works of art.

The journey back through the hustle and bustle of towns and villages. In contrast, the open countryside gladdening the heart with its boundless paddie fields in different shades of green, tumbling down natural terraces set in the hillsides, men and women in their straw hats toil in the fields.

This is Bali.

So time to return to the serene and sensuous surroundings of the Hotel its ornamental garden ponds, disturbed only by the sound of an hibiscus flower falling into the still waters.

Laying on a now empty sun bed, the stars appear brighter and closer, sparkling like diamonds on a bed of black velvet, twinkling through the prongs of a coconut palm swaying in the breeze. A sight to behold and forever in my memory.

I am here on my annual pilgrimage to the wonderful Bali, adorned by beautiful temples, lush rice paddies and mountainous volcanoes, most of all, this is an island of enchantment shrouded by a blanket of mystique and pure magic, a paradise of smiles and genuine warmth.

If the World could be like this, peace would be forever more.
