Such a lot of world to see.

Island of the Gods

The island of Bali has a spiritual feel to it that is difficult to describe. It's a combination of so many things, but it makes people never want to leave. It's the bright colors of the jungle,   the tropical flowers and the local clothing, and constant subtle smells of burning incense offerings to the gods, and the way people are always calm, friendly, and smiling even while weaving in and out of traffic running late for an appointment. It's little idiosyncrasies, like the way people give blessing to the engines of the boat before leaving port, or how every property, be it hotel, business or residence has multiple shrines to the Hindu deities. There are temples dating back to the 8th century, shrines overrun by monkeys, and active volcanoes for you to climb.  Bali is an impressively beautiful place that is both accessible and affectionate to foreigners while still being very much an exotic destination.
