Welcome to this site. It comprises notes on the activities of myself (including Baha'i and Hidden Words Bookshop), my family and friends with photos, as well as some of my writings, stories and poetry written over recent years since retiring from full time employment. Hope you enjoy them.
My wife and I travelled to Bali from 4 to 14 April this year (2011) for our daughter's 40th birthday. We first of all stayed in Ubud on our own before moving down to Legian for the celebrations.
Having been to Bali many times before and been entranced by this magical place, its culture, religion and scenery, I was a little disappointed with some changes - more pollution, rubbish, crowding, traffic jams etc. We saw little of women with heads piled high with offerings for the temple (see above) and other exotic sights. But we still had a nice time, particularly with family members including 2 grandchildren.
