Bali – Family Intermission

There was one main reason to visit Bali – Alex (JM’s cousin) and Marion’s big wedding day.

Since we were in the vicinity we thought we would pop in and be part of their big day!……. Only joking….. We had actually planned our whole Indonesian adventure around the day and boy was it worth it! What a great wedding!

We ended up spending 10 days in Bali mainly because our visa extension took 7 days and 3 visits to immigration. We did however have loads of fun in the meantime…. A wedding, family time, extreme scooter riding, visiting beaches and temples, diving and generally enjoying how pretty Bali is.

We did so many fun and different things we thought we would show our adventures in photos rather than us jabbering on and on. The photos speak for themselves.
