Which areas & what hotels to choose on a luxury stay in Bali

Location

Final evaluation after 3 visits to this tropical island in 5 years

As fate would have it (our son is currently yet again in Singapore for study purposes, more on this city later on), my husband and I were stranded once again in Bali, after visiting it already in 2014 and 2016. This gave us ample chance to explore two more areas – the lesser visited east of Bali and Nusa Dua, a planned resort community in the island’s south, in addition to the ones we knew from our previous stays. In such a way, I was able to get an almost complete image of “the Island of Gods”, as Bali is also called, at least in terms of which areas and hotels to choose when appreciating the finer things in life.

What to do on a 3-night stay in Turin/North Italy

How to walk & explore the capital city of Piedmont

Turin, the Piedmontese metropolis, does not get the hype it really deserves in terms of hot Italian tourist spots! When looking for a city trip in Italy, most travelers think of Rome, Florence or Venice, but not of this striking place in the northern part of this country. What a mistake, this city just oozes charm, history and culture and is not overtouristed as the mentioned more popular siblings further south.
