Club Med Nusa Dua Bali

Authored By Jennifer

Aaaah, the good life! Now this is what I call a vacation.

I’m not sure how many of you have been to Club Med. It’s very French, which is usually a turn off for us Americans. My parents and my Uncle George and Mark have been to a couple of them, and that’s how I first learned about it. Probably 4 years ago now I went to Club Med Cancun by myself. One of the best vacations I’ve ever had. It’s an all inclusive resort, including alcoholic beverages, and they have several activities that you can participate in. At night they provide entertainment, and depending on the type of village you’re at, some of them also have night clubs. So you can do anything you want, or nothing at all. Everything is taken care of for you. And the food is really, really good.

Club Med Bali is absolutely beautiful. I have a ton of pictures, but I’ll have to post them later because I don’t have the cable to Brian’s camera to upload them. Ooops. But take my word for it, it’s beautiful. And my room was big, and clean and oh so comfortable. I don’t think I’ve slept on a more comfortable bed our entire trip. The Bali village is for families, and I was worried about the screaming kids interrupting my relaxation, but there weren’t that many of them, and they were well behaved. The village was only about 1/3 full, and there were mostly Koreans, Japanese, Australians, and French. I was the lone American. In fact a local asked where I was from and when I said America, he said, “America? Superpower!” It was kinda funny actually.

Here was my typical day at Club Med:
8ish- wake up slowly, just the way I like
9ish- get some breakfast, chocolate croissants every morning, yum!
11ish- spa treatment, I indulged and got the 5 day package which was the price of a two hour treatment in SF
noonish- lunch time, tons of food and desserts
1ish- check my email to make sure Brian is still alive in India
rest of the afternoon- read by the pool, maybe watch a movie if it was too hot, get in the pool, sometimes have a drink, or even enjoy a nap
7ish- have a drink at the bar before dinner
7:30- dinner! they eat late here and I was always one of the first to eat, way more food, way more dessert
9ish- watch the evenings show or go back to my room and watch a movie if the show was too cheesy

Basicially I did a whole lot of nothing, except eat. And I loved every minute of it.

I have to admit that I really, really miss Brian. We have spent an insanely large amount of time together for the past 4 months now. And all-in-all, we’ve gotten along quite well. I am usually the one complaining that Brian’s driving me crazy and I need some space. But now that we’re apart, I miss him terribly. There’s a certain comfort of having someone with you all the time. I want my comfort back.

    Hey Lady,

    You have crossed my mind quite a few times in the past couple of days. I apologize for just writing now. I really appreciate the postcard that I received from New Zealand. I am glad you had a chance to take a breather from of it all. You know this is my kind of party. Natasha and I are doing well. We will have to do lunch when you come back home and get settled.
