Travel With Bender

Uncovering the best vacations

Bali, Indonesia

May - June 2012

The first two months of our Travel Journey begins in Bali. One half north in Ubud, the other half south in Jimbaran.

Bali is an Indonesian island located in the westernmost end of the Lesser Sunda Islands, lying between Java to the west and Lombok to the east. It is one of the country's 33 provinces with the provincial capital at Denpasar towards the south of the island. The province covers a few small neighbouring islands as well as the isle of Bali. It is the largest tourist destination in the country and is renowned for its highly developed arts, including traditional and modern dance, sculpture, painting, leather, metalworking, and music.

January - February 2014

After 1000 days on the road we returned to the starting point of our unbelievable nomadic journey. How poetic! We have changed so much as individuals during this time, and our blog has transformed into a leading family travel resource. Who would have thought? We have tried to relax and unwind after a jam-packed 9 months in Europe. But as always, we're tempted to explore and discover more about this magical island even though it's our 9th visit.
