Bali on the Brain

So, these past few weeks, I've been busy doing much of nothing, trying to get myself to get off my duff and finish stuff like setting up the new router and doing routine IT maintenance on my home setup. Yes, I won't bore you with any more of these details, but I have to say too that I've been doing something else.

Thinking about going to Bali.

I have Bali on the brain! Everything is Bali this and Bali that and I just keep thinking about Bali, Bali, and more Bali. Thinking about Bali, dreaming of Bali, plotting my trip to Bali...wait, did I just say "plotting my trip to Bali?" Yes, indeed, I did!

I found a nice trip to Bali in September and I plan on going. Or, as least, doing my best to get my butt over there. When I say that, I mean, many things can go wrong between now and then, but I intend to keep Bali on my radar and possibly put a deposit down on a trip to Bali as early as April (for September travels.)

Now, I know what you are thinking too. Wasn't she going to try to go back to Iceland again this year? Yes, indeed, I was and I am! I'm going to try too to head over to Iceland for a quick summer trip (gets me out of the Texas heat!) and re-visit the wonderful countryside there. More icebergs, more shooting, more beaches, more Tiki huts, and oh so much more.

Now, I know what you're thinking again too. "Didn't she say she wasn't going to travel all that much this year?" Um...ok, so maybe I got that bit wrong. But that's just one bit, the rest of it...it all makes so much sense. I'll book my Iceland trip as soon as I get back from Las Vegas and I'll book my Bali trip shortly after I book my Iceland trip. The Las Vegas trip is coming up soon too, so I've already (sort of) started preparations for that. Thinking about what lenses I want to bring and thinking about when I need to gear up so it all comes together for me.

Las Vegas, Iceland, Bali. It's shaping up to be a good year if I can manage to pull it all off. Now, I know a lot of stuff can go wrong between now and then. Plans change. It's hard to book these things, sometimes. Trips get canceled. You know the drill. Still, for now anyway, those are the plans.

Las Vegas, Iceland, Bali.

I'm going to have to drink a lot of tea. I think that's the only thing those places have in common, isn't it? I've never been to Asia before and now, here I am, thinking about going to Bali and planning on getting over there in September.

Bali on the brain, I tell you. Bali on the brain!

Until next time...
