The other day I shared some of Bali’s greenery, but for my final vacation post (after all, I can’t escape real life forever!) I thought I would focus on its water. And being a tropical island, there is a lot of it.
I’ve always loved the water—in any form. And even when I can’t take a dip I love the peace and mental tranquility it offers simply from being in its vicinity. Lukus is the same way, and I think we have already passed that onto our daughter, as she was enamored not only with the Indian Ocean, but pools and ponds as well (although the ponds may have had something to do with Koi!).
Beyond helping me unwind, I also find that water can be inspiring and I am pretty sure I have about a million photos of the coastline (don’t worry, I am only sharing 5 favorite water moments here). I love the different shades of blues, greens and greys water takes on. Just looking at these photos both fills with me ideas and relaxes my sometimes frantic mind. It really in no wonder that so many cultural and religious traditions associate what with both with healing and rebirth. Seriously, is there anything better than water?
I hope you’ve enjoyed my Bali Travel Snapshots! We had such a fantastic time that we are already planning our next SEAsia getaway (maybe mainland SEAsia next time?!). But now I want to hear from you— what do you look for when you go on vacation? The woods? Wide-open green spaces? Or are you a water lover like myself?
