Am seriously now thinking about 2011 and sad but true I don't think Lombok will be on the agenda.

Hubby no where near as keen to return!

Soooooo sad!

But the up side due to son's (Mr 15) schooling beginning to get to the pointy end He's in his second last year. School would prefer him to miss earlier rather than later................

So instead of having to wit till Sept/Oct we are looking at going in July!

PS Felt obligated to post as no-one else is these days! Check forum daily! Not enough chatter!

PostSubject: If not Lombok, why not Central Java?   Tue Dec 14, 2010 10:32 am

Why not soak up some culture of Central Java?

Jogjakarta is the cultural capital of Java and is only an hour away from Bali. You can stay in comfort at a hotel in Jogja ($70) and check out Borobudur and Prambanan temples.

You can do lot of Batik shopping in Merlyboro (influenced by Marlboro cigarette co.) shopping area in Jogja.

For more information, look up the postings by Theo in "Virtual Tourist". Theo now in his 60's came to Central Java when he was 26. Let me know if you want me to introduce him to you.

PostSubject: Fishing trip in Kuta, Lombok   Tue Dec 14, 2010 8:37 pm

Funtrecker,

You can:

1. Convince your husband about a customized fishing trip in Kuta, Lombok.

OR

2. Take Mr. 14 and go for the fishing trip

OR

3. Obtain a "Temporary Balinese Divorce" available for only Rp.5,000 valid for five days at the Tourist Office in Ubud, Bali and go on a solo trip to Kuta, Lombok for a fishing trip piloted by Made, have tea in Ashtahari, visit sasak weaving village, climb Mt. Rinjani (or at least visit the first waterfall) and crash at Mimpimanis.

Before returning to Bali, obtain an anullment of the divorce at the Lombok Governor's office (fees $5) and tell the family what they missed.

Remember during this temporary period you don't have to worry about family laundry, timely meals, etc.

Come on only nine more decades to the 22nd Century bounce

lol!

Trip to Indonesia: Can be Solo

What you want to do there: Does not have to be Solo Smile

Provided:

Travelers have common interests Cool

Can put up with minor irritants silent

Leave their countries behind cheers

and

Can deal with what they face every day bounce
