Nov 15, 2009 - Last Day in Bali

We are finally leaving Bali! It is around 9:00 p.m., and Vikki and I are waiting in the terminal at the airport to catch our 10:30 p.m. flight out of Bali which will, after a brief one hour stop in Kuala Lumpur, continue on to Doha, the capital of Qatar. From there we will be catching a connecting flight to Amman, Jordan shortly after noon tomorrow. As such, we have a lot of flight mileage and time in transit generally ahead of us before we arrive at the starting point for this next leg of our trip. Given that we have a little while before...

Nov 14, 2009 - Diving Amed in Bali - Bunaten & Jemeluk Drop-Off

It is only around 20 after 8 this evening, yet it feels much later. I am sitting out on the balcony of our room at the Sunrise Café in Jemeluk. Although we face the water and are only about 10 or 15 meters from the water’s edge, there is not the slightest breeze here tonight. It is hot, humid and sticky out here, and as our room does not have air-conditioning or a ceiling fan - rather, only a small local fan - , we have little reprieve from the still and thick air. Quite the contrast from last night, where a nice breeze swept off the ocean...

Dec 17, 2008 - Heading North to Amed

Everyone met at Sector’s restaurant for an early morning breakfast before posing for a group foto. While Grainne stayed behind with Frank to hopefully retrieve the luggage held at customs, the two treatment teams headed out for our first treatment day. My team packed our treatment supplies into a rented van and headed up the coast for a four-hour ride to Desa Ban to treat at the East Bali Poverty Project. Last year, GAHP treated ten or so young kids there with developmental challenges and we were headed back to check-in on their progress....

Oct 16, 2008 - Bali - mit Magdalena und Michael

Es ist recht einfach, lange weg zu fahren, wenn man daheim Kinder hat, die einem angefangen vom Reiseführer bis zu den Medikamenten alles was man braucht besorgen - letztere mit Hilfe unserer Ärztin, die für ihre Patienten auf Bali sogar die individuelle Dosierung auf die Schachtel geschrieben hat - , und wenn man dann noch Freunde hat, die einem das alles rund um den Globus persönlich zustellen. Also, Magdalena und Michasel waren knappe drei Wochen da und mit ihnen haben wir viele von jenen Bali-Highlights besucht, zu denen wir allein...

Sep 21, 2008 - Amed

[Lora writing] We left Ubud and took a 3 hour bus ride to Amed, which is situated on the east coast of Bali. We arrived at our beautiful bungalow, complete with thatched roof, outdoor shower, mosquito net, and padlock as our doorlock. Even though it sounds primitive, it was seriously swanky for a bungalow (I hope we can upload some pics, but we've been having a lot of problems with that). As swanky as our digs were, on our last night, a buddy came to visit is in the form of a 10 inch long, 3 inch wide, spotted gecko :). The beach at Amed...

Aug 8, 2008 - Lipah - die Bucht der vielen Boote

Von Ubud fahren wir über Sidemen mit seinen schönen Reisfeldern ans Meer. Das Pondok Vienna in Lipah nimmt uns freundlich auf und wir finden die meisten Leute, die wir von früheren Besuchen kennen, nach wie vor hier beschäftigt und fragen nach Heidi, Lucia und Toni mit ihren Kindern Alex und Tashi, nach Sabine ... Es ist wie heim kommen, obwohl die Bungalow-Anlage vor einem Jahr gebrannt hat und alle alten Bambus-Hütten weg sind. Die Steinhäuser haben den Brand überstanden und Made, der Manager, gibt uns wieder einen schönen Bungalow mit...

Aug 5, 2007 - Amed - Getting there

We left Lovina in the morning. Lovina is a nice place to eat and shop but not much more (we'll get that in Ubud). We stopped at a waterfall that was posted on a road sign- it was a pretty decent waterfall but a farther walk than the 20 minutes it was supposed to be. More interesting than the waterfall was a boy we met coming back down the trail. He approached us with decent English and started making conversation. He told us that he has lived his whole life on a hillside farm nearby. His job is to scare the animals away so they don't eat...
