After some amazing diving in Komodo National Park, we were pretty pooped, especially with the anticipation of another great week of diving in Palau coming up. As such, we have been taking a little vacation from our vacation with a week in Bali and Manila.
In Bali, we managed to make it to a few local sights, including the Water Blow, where the erosion on the rocks has created an inlet that spews with the high tide. It was like waiting for a geyser to blow!
We also went to the Ubud Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary, which was just about the most touristy place we've been on this trip. It's actually a beautiful Hindu temple complex, but the hoards of people feeding bananas and other food to the macaques definitely took away from the ambiance. The monkeys were unsurprisingly a hoot, though.
We were sad to leave Bali, but Manila has been a fascinating place with incredible history, including old Spanish forts and World War II history.
With that, we are saying goodbye to our lovely view of Manila Bay and heading to Palau! Thanks as always for following our adventures!
