Relaxing Weekend..

Our view this morning
This morning, I found I had been sent lots of pictures of snow at home - I looked out of the window here, and it's absolutely gorgeous, the very opposite of snow! It has been really humid this week, and we had a HUGE storm last night, which did a cracking job of taking away the humidity! 

Last night, during the storm we had a lot of fun watching one of the drivers trying to get his car up the hill - George was going mad because he was using too many revs (obviously I agreed, as I have no idea when it comes to cars) and this was the reason he was having trouble, then they decided to do a 3-point turn and go forwards! He eventually got it out,  George even had his flip flops on ready to go and help too! 

My Tan Lines!!
Tanah Lot Temple
We have had a quiet weekend this weekend, we went out for sunset on Friday at Tanah Lot, which is one of the most iconic temples in Bali, it's set just off the coast, on it's own little cliff and it's a beautiful place to watch the sunset! I had the most ridiculous tan lines ever on Friday, from my huge sunglasses..which got worse as it got darker, so the picture of us on Friday is ruined slightly! lol! We then got the drinking bug a little bit and remembered a place called Echo beach where they have a DJ on a Friday, so we head off their - only to find that the live music is only on Sunday in low season...we we're a bit disappointed but still enjoyed a couple of cocktails each and an amazing chocolate brownie! Whilst we were sat enjoying this, the wind picked up and the heavens opened! We only had about 100metres to walk to our car but we were absolutely drowned rats! We struggled to run, laughing, flip flops and torrential rain are not a good combination! 

We're off to Bangkok for a week tomorrow. We're very excited and have no real plans, so can just explore explore explore..all we know is we definately want to eat a lot of street food and a try eating bugs! 

Hope everyone else has had a fun weekend, and is enjoying the snow!
