Bali Holiday 2012

Sorry I didn't post yesterday, I ran out of time. I don't know how you ladies with children can still find the time to blog! It's hard for me to find time for blogging sometimes and I've only got myself, my partner and my dog to look after.

There's no nail polish in this post, so sorry if that's all you're interested in. Here's some pictures of my Bali holiday. 

These first few photos are of the Bali Safari and Marine Park:

Elephants in the elephant show holding each other's tails, so cute!

Myself and a giant Ganesha Statue

My partner Braeden and I with a Lion cub. I think he was 6 weeks old!

Me with a cute orangutan!

Can you spot the bird?

We found a really pretty temple in the safari park. We had the feeling we weren't supposed to go down there but it was so pretty!

Myself and Braeden having dinner on the Beach in Jimbaran Bay. We got front row seats for the sunset.

Sunset and puppies!

Cocktail, sunset and people in the background ruining my photo.

This is the pond in my favourite restaurant in Kuta - TJ's Mexican. If you ever go to Bali you NEED to go here!

These fish were in our hotel in Kuta. Every time we walked past them they went crazy thinking we were going to feed them. We nicknamed them the Om Nom Fish.

This cute kitty hung out with us while we waited for another boat to Gili Meno.

These were the boats we needed to get to travel between the islands. You can see just how close the islands are. There's Gili Air and Lombok behind it in the background.

I hope you enjoyed my photos. :)

    1. Thanks, can't wait to see your Europe ones! :)

  3. tigers and lions are the best!!!! I couldn't find that bird either! Was it hiding inside the hole peeping its eye out?
    Also, your trip looks so fun!!!!! I want to go on a holiday now lol

    1. Yeah I love the lions and tigers! The bird was hiding in the hole. :)

  4. I found the birdie :-) Some great pictures there, the elephants are so cute! And the big cats with their tongues out, is that 'cause they were hot?
    The sunset looks amazing too :-)

    1. The white tiger was yawning and I think the Lioness was just licking her lips looking at all the delicious people she could eat. :P

  5. Love the pics, your trip looks like it was awesome!

  6. It looks so amazing! The pictures are gorgeous, you must have had a great time!

  7. Awesome photos!! I love them all! Thanks so much for sharing.

    1. Thanks! Yeah my dog is a lot of work but it's so worth it. :)

  10. Looks like you had a great time! :) Jealous!

  11. wonderful holiday!) bali is such an amazing place)

  12. Love the pics! Glad you had a great time! I missed your daily posts :) You mentioned you were going to be on the look out for polish in Bali - find any?

    1. Aww thanks :) Yeah I had a look but I was pretty disappointed with what I found. They had boring Revlon colours and O.P.I for $16 (I can get it here for $12) I bought one polish from a brand called VOV. It was probably a good thing though because my suitcase was so full of other stuff. :P

  13. That poor bee gave his life to sting Braeden! HAHA! I hope he's ok-that looks like a nasty bee! I loved your pictures. It's nice to see places I will never go.

    1. Haha yeah, he said it really hurt! It was actually quite scary because he's allergic to bees and we were on an island far away from any medical help. Luckily he didn't have a reaction so we think it might have been a wasp not a bee :S

  14. all of your pictures were so nice to look at! You made me wish I was there instead of here in plain old NYC. I hope you had a nice vacation! :)
