Customs and traditions.
Do you research local customs before you go to a country?
Bali is steeped tradition and religious customs and ceremonies.
It pays to do a little google research so you have some knowledge, which will help you act respectfully in certain areas and in different situations.
Carrying a light sarong can come in handy for so many purposes, including entering temples.
“The Kamben aka the sarong visitors are required to wear prior to entering temples. Kamben is a cloth worn to cover the lower part of our bodies; it is tied around the waist and falls just right below the knees. For men, it is customary for the kamben to be wrapped from left to right, representing the good (dharma). Their kambens cover the legs down to the ankle, which suggests that men should cover more ground in supporting their family. As for women, the kamben is worn from right to left, a sign that the women are saktis, keeping the men balanced.“
How much time do we actually need to see the BIGGEST MUSEUM in the world❓❓❓Though it's the Paris' most visited tourist attraction...How many have actually seen it all❓❓❓
We spent half a day here and didnt even see a quarter of all that this beauty had to offer😮
Honestly speaking, this fort turned Museum is so big that it is humanely impossible to see all that it has to offer in one visit. 🙄
I read somewhere that you need 100 days, to probably squeeze in every piece of art, only if you spend 30 seconds on each piece😱 – and that’s if you were there all day, every day.🙈 .
Ｈａｍｐｔａ Ｐａｓｓ Ｔｒｅｋl It is indeed a lot of leg work. 😉
One more trek off the bucket list. I would like to take this opportunity to thank my legs for carrying me all the way through this 4 day arduous journey. .

Thank you for this share Kelli..
“I just want to tell you how much this trip meant to me. I can’t remember the last time I have relaxed like I have relaxed with you. You have taken all the work, all the planning and arranged every little detail, right down to the little gift bags which I have thoroughly enjoying. With all the natural products, I love the tee-shirts.
I love everything about the trip and it will be in my memory for a very long time.
Especially all my new friends and the pampering that you gave me time to have that I don’t get in my every day life.

It’s the 1st week of September-and that means it’s the first week of spring here in New Zealand.
This is a great time to do a “spring clean” of all your travel documents. That includes making sure your passport is up to date!
Keep your passports current as you never know when you might need it, right from family emergencies to grabbing those last minute travel deals.
Don’t forget you need to have 6 months valid from your expropriation date. So don’t let it lapse or book that ticket with only a couple of months to go before it expires!
I’ve just renewed my British passport with only one day left before it expired, so this spring clean was a great reminder.

Amber fort- one of the premier sightseeing spots in jaipur!
11kms from Jaipur in a town called Amer!
The fort is originally said to have been built by Maharaja Man Singh 1. it underwent several alterations by the following rulers, till the capital of Kanchawaha was shifted to Jaipur by Raja Sawai Man Singh 2!
Day 5: Singapore
2- Fort canning
3- Clarke Quay
5- Marina bay
Day started with some authentic Chinatown market. This market offers you all the kind of households, cosmetics, eatery areas and etc.
I guess no trip is complete in Singapore without visiting here.. After that we went to Fort Canning Park which is basically a house of Stanford Raffles who developed modern Singapore. This place is more like botanical garden.
Opposite to it there is Clarke Quay Streets which is located near Riverside. This place is very happening during night times however a nice drive in water cruise will attract you in day time too.
So, we took a cruise from Clarke Quay to Merlion which is the most famous symbol of Singapore. Along with that there's Marina bay sands where you can experience the lavish privileges. Although we could not experience the Infinity Pool as we were not staying there still the view was beautiful.
