I haven’t been the most punctual of sorts when it comes to my travel photos—my backlog is incredible, I even have photos from 2012 that I haven’t even touched yet! But since I’m waiting for midnight to strike tonight in spite of my 7:30 AM class tomorrow morning, I figured I’d try and shave a little bit off of my backlog.
Last May, the Monsods (except for my dad and sister) packed up our beach things and headed for Bali! We had a beachfront hotel, and it was lovely to hear the waves before going to bed.
My baby nephew Tripp was with us! Made the trip all the more fun and adorable, if you could describe a vacation like so.
My nephew and godson Tristan enjoyed swimming a lot, too. It was nearly impossible getting him out of the pool.
I, on the other hand, enjoyed soaking up some sun on top of floating around in the water.
Our resort, Legong Keraton, was all sorts of beautiful. The area where we have breakfast every morning is nice and bright and always so inviting, and the staff are gracious and friendly. :)
It may not be obvious, but I love the beach. I love the sun, the sand, the sea. I even dreamed, at some point in my young life, of getting married on the beach, walking barefoot on the sand towards the love of my life (which he would approve of, because I said I wouldn’t have to wear fancy heeled shoes), with the sound of the crashing waves.
Honestly, I could spend just hours listening to the water and watch it move on and off the shore with steady rhythm.
It’d be lovely to just slip on my beach dress over my swimsuit when I’m not in the water or soaking up the sun and stroll around or eat good food.
There’s just something about seeing the sun through those trees. I often wish we had cooler weather, but there are some perks to living in a tropical country.
Damn, now I want to go on a beach vacation.
