Hey, so it's been almost a year since I first posted with the idea of traveling to Indo.  I'm sorry to say that I have yet step foot in Bali.  However, after reading the new encouraging posts, I have a renewed interest in traveling there.

It seems that the visas and vaccinations will be my first logistical steps to making this trip a reality.  The next obstacles will be plane tickets, accomodation, and further ideas of how to earn enough money to stay as long as possible without incurring a debt.

Thanks to all the replies to post.  Even to those trying to warn me off.  It may not be soon, but I will be in Indo at some point, and there will be at least one more post describing the experience.  Thanks to all.  Living the dream.

My boyfriend and I are ehading there early Septemebr, Im so dahm excited after reading up a bit and watching a travel guide video.  Has anyone been there since the Tsunami hit?  We are starting in Bali, I haven't heard any bad things about Bali but just wanted to check with anyone who has first hand experience.

Nah Amy the Tsunami didn't reach Bali. But after the bomb hit a few years ago the town turned into a ghost town but it's all getting better now. Gotta support the place. After the London stuff the last week Bali looks like a paradise destination. Where r u from, what do you know about Bali, what type of holiday r u guys looking for?

american wanker this aussie loadmouth that,well let me tell you bout when a few american pros went to scotland for a surf on the best right of the emerald  isles  the pros were surfing  respectfully and sharing as always should be done especially in a foreign land,the biggest local was so stoked at their respectfullness befriended them ,at 6 ft 5  280 lbs he was a monster.anyways a caravan pulls up an australian family ,guy suites up gos out and just starts dropping in on everyone and anything thinking he owned everywave ,big local paddled up to him and says somethin like why cant you be cool and respectfull like [pointing at the americans]those travellers,anyways the aussie actually gave a lil lip so the local had to make him leave ,too bad bye bye.
