The Bali report card is in!

My views unfiltered: 
The lack infrastructure is destroying everything beautiful in Bali.  New hotels are popping up all over the island, waste is being dumped into the ocean and back alleys are filled with garbage.  While everything looks good on the outside, behind the fancy hotels, restaurants and clubs it's a different story.  Bali is often referred to North America’s Mexico…

Don’t get me wrong, there are some great things about Bali but I’m just not sure that its worth the trip from North America. 

One thing that I love about Asia is that everything fits on a scooter…pigs, donut shop, family of 4 (its hard to see the little baby), etc.  


A few highlights from Bali...


Private plunge pools are made for cannonballs!! 

You know when you have too much time on your hands...
