Anish and I had been longing for a vacation. We had no idea where, but we knew , we wanted to go to place with moderate climate, with beaches and at strict dates(end of June)
After some research , we zeroed on our destination, Bali. And then the planning began!
Bali, that pretty place in Indonesia needs no introduction. It has become one of the most popular destinations for travel in Asia, and why not! Clean beaches, delicious food,lots of places to shop from, temples,water sports… you name it and Bali had everything to offer.I know I am being a bit dramatic but I was ready to travel as soon we finalized our destination, equipped with all the information within a day or two.
Planning started with booking flight tickets,generally tickets range between 30-35K from Bangalore to Denpasar,Bali for 2 people, but I guess June is kind of start of the peak season, tickets were somehow costing us 42-44K even in mid of April.
Bummer that was! Like always Anish was okay but I was not,spending those extra 12K , Ughh!!
I remembered a casual chat I had with one of my colleagues when she had mentioned about how tickets are sometimes cheaper from Trichy. To be sure, I just tried my luck
and Bam! Tickets were really cheap from Trichy at that time.I had decided I am flying to Bali from Trichy, only tricky task was to make Anish agree on that and make him thank later since I found tickets only for 30K.
After much persuasion, he gave up and we planned our travel from 21st June – 30th June.
Finally,we were done with first task of many to follow.
