I don’t even remember when exactly, but my bestie and I booked a girls trip to Bali earlier in the year. Well, I’ve blinked and now I leave for the first leg of the trip in… oh a casual nine hours time.
Of course, I am super excited; I’ve never been to Bali before – I mean I only left the country for the first time when I was 30 – but, uh, winging an international trip is already starting to show a few flaws.
Firstly, did you know that if you go to book an immensely popular tour that involves driving around on a bar that’s on the back of a bike with free-pouring beer two days before your arrival, it will be booked out
Another fun fact: if you leave it to the night before to do your washing in the middle of winter, you run the risk of your clothes not drying in time?
But, my absolute ‘favourite’ faux pas was thinking that I would actually be able to pre-plan all my Blaugust posts to cover five days of being AFK.
Ha ha ha ha hahaha.
I’m actually pretty devastated that my Blaugust win-streak is in jeopardy – it’s almost up there with missing out on the beer bike tour! – but I’m hoping that between the four hour plane flight and all the lazing about the pool that I’m planning on, I can phone in a few quickies to keep the dream alive.
Wish me luck!
