Sounds good?

Note: I only fly business. You can stay in economy if you want.
cheap as chips then

If you're after spirits, buy them in Dubai duty free. Don't forget to check the Indonesia DF allowance. The local beer (lager) Bintang is cheap as chips and very refreshing! Wine is very expensive in Bali.

You can change just about any currency in Bali, but I'd take USD over GBP.

Which part of Bali are you staying in?
Thanks SPOUSE, in that case will definitely stock up on DXB - we are staying in Saminyak

BTW it is still raining most nights in Bali...big storm last night but daytime is now sunnier/hotter than earlier this month.
Crisp USD get a better rate than dirty old ones...I suggest never change at streetside money changers...go into an air conditioned forex!
I flew near the volcano on a trip JKT-Bali on Tuesday and there was no sign of activity.

The Gilis is easier to get to now by a new boat service called Patagonia...a big 200 pax aluminum twin-diesel A/C boat that rides the water well. I think Rp 350,000 one way from Tanjung Benoa.

Local wine is cheap and is drinkable...Plaga; Hatten; Sababay are some names...I drink a lot of Hatten Rosé myself and have survived.
Thanks DAVITA - we have all got our rain coats

We take in as many half bottles of champagne as our allowances will let us (Mr K not a huge fan of it so half bottles or I'd never leave the villa), plus a small gin and maybe JD. That said, I rarely drink beer but a bottle of Bintang by the pool at sundown really hits the spot - go to the supermarket when you get there and stock up on beer and snacks.

We never change money there, too easy for a miscount when you're getting millions. In the early days we'd take USD but now just take IDR and use cards most places. Let your bank know you're travelling and to where.

Your raincoat will become your personal sauna (Always used to make me laugh in Singapore, seeing tourists sweating in their raincoats and ponchos.)

Have a fabulous time and do report back. I'm very envious; due to a terminally ill cat I haven't been anywhere since October (which was Sanur) and a week in a villa right now sounds bliss.

For serious alcoholics I can recommend a local vodka ....it's called Vodka9 and costs about Rp220,000 in grocery stores...maybe even in Carrefour.

TBH we always take too much in. I don't know why - we hardly drink at home when we're in Sydney, mostly just out with meals. Get into that holiday mentality I guess.

Yes. Please do report back.

My old Ty pusscat isn't terminally ill at the moment , although he was close a month or so ago but I cannot go anywhere either, even for an overnight. He is diabetic with twice daily insulin shots & no-one will do that but us.
I've not been anywhere since last August. We had penned in a Bali return for this June but that's not a goer now.

We do what we have to do, BEVS. If I don't get to cuddle the Villa Kitty Bali cats this year, so be it.

Ty is not an it. He is a he & he is very loved & he loves me. There is nothing wrong with the quality of his life which he still enjoys , so why would I put him down? One wouldn't euthanise a person with diabetes.

When the time comes and if he needs a release in that way, then yes, euthanasia will certainly be considered Scamp as it is a kind and caring thing that one is is allowed to do for animals, unlike for people. My Dad would have opted for euthanasia, instead his dying was very, very difficult.

So no. The end of his life has not yet come and I shan't be shortening it for no good reason.

and yes .... I remember that you don't like pusscats Mr Scamp.

I'd have asked the same we were discussing a dog or a camel or whatever else. Just seems if you're terminally ill and injections and all that jazz then it might be nicer. Still, if the cat is happy then not worth spoiling it.

I agree on euthanasia, I think if someone is capable of making that decision, they're capable of making that decision.

Ty isn't terminally ill, although he was quite poorly a bit ago & was in hospital & I thought I might have to make a decision if the vet found bad stuff going on.

The insulin shots are as for people. It goes in under the skin and isn't felt.

It is kooky's pusscat that is terminal but her cat could also be enjoying his days despite the time grows short. Bit like people really.

For my Dad it would have been a great kindness to allow him to make that choice. As it was he suffered.

She won't have gone. She'll have got the wrong passport, missed the flight and rebooked to visit Tanzania with flights via Istanbul and Krakow.

Hey Scamp, yes it's my cat that is terminally ill. He has cancer in 3 sites (that we know of) and we decided not to operate because he's nearly 16, and we decided not to do chemo because he was hand-reared and very sensitive, we're sure he would not tolerate it well, and we decided not to do chemo tablets because we'd have to isolate him and we don't think that's any life at all for such a loving and sociable cat.

So we brought him home to spend what's left of his life with his sister (litter mate) and little brother (taken off the street 4 years later and the love of his life). He's eating, he seems happy, he's on anti-seizure meds - his legs were going from under him, which is when we did the tests and got the cancer diagnosed. We installed motion-sensitive cameras so we can watch him when we're out and so far we've had six months post-diagnosis. We love him, his siblings love him, and he eats all the bread and chips he damn well wants (which is a lot, he's a carb fiend). When he deteriorates, I can assure you we won't let him suffer. But thanks for your concern.
