More Human Interest Stories

Update reader Carole Sainte-Marie, sainte_marie63@hotmail.com, wrote in to tell us what she likes best about Bali Update:

I am always eager to read your weekly articles. They have numerous qualities: informative to the travel agent that I am, short and direct to the point, on top of being well written.

I appreciate another aspect even more: you talk about events that take place in the everyday life of people. So Bali becomes more than just a place, it has a beating heart. By awaking the foreigners' consciousness about the arts, problems and suffering as well as solutions being implemented, we can then realize how "we are all one;" only the setting changes. The article on the exhibition from the Kupu Kupu Foundation and its link is a good example. I am profoundly touched by this information.


Is Bali Really the Best?

Our coverage of Travel and Leisure Magazine's selection of Bali as the best island in the world evoked the following reaction from an Australian reader, Chris Howard, chrish@garuda.com.au:

I find these results hard to believe as Bali now seems to be ridiculously expensive and passenger numbers have dropped.

Who Goes There – Friend or Foe?

Our editorial on the political nature of U.S. Travel Advisories elicited a large number of visitors to balidiscovery.com and some lively comments from readers.

Herbert Wolf, hwolf@airliners-ca.net, from Toronto, Canada wrote to say:

Your editorial has hit the proverbial nail right on its head. The U.S. government's outdated travel advisory for Indonesia is just one more piece of evidence that shows how out of sync the Bush administration is with the real world out there.

It's surely no consolation to your readers that Indonesia is just one example of a confused and purposely belligerent foreign policy. If this policy were driven by old-fashioned common sense and an actual interest in its global neighbors, this travel advisory would have long since been updated and revised. Let's hope that the American public, like Travel & Leisure, is smarter and more astute than the people responsible for this particular "advisory." Three cheers to your ongoing efforts on behalf of travel to Bali.


The Head of a leading marketing consulting group, Lighthouse Corporation, Mr. Harrison, harrison@lighthousecorporation.com, wrote:

Excellent writing ... keep up the good work...
