Preparations before departure

Gatineau Travel Blog

We have been preparing this trip for years.  Both of us have made income averaging arrangements with our employers to ensure a smooth funding of the trip.  We have already booked basic accomodations and flights covering 2 months in Patong Beach, Thailand, and one month in Seminyak, Bali.  Any side trip from these locations will be planned on the spur of the moment. 

We are departing from Ottawa on a beautiful sunny day in Canada's capital, one of the world's coldest.  Pictures below tell of a snowy day, because as soon as we are safely out of North American airspace, a weather system will swoop in and mess things up back home for our friends and colleagues! Hahahahahaha!!!

Hi there! I've been to Bali twice and I highly recommend taking a side trip to the Gili Islands. It's about $60 for a round trip ticket (by boat) including land transport. There are three islands and it's really easy to book last minute fares between the islands. I went to Gili T the second time I went to Bali and I ended up not leaving until the day of my flight! Enjoy!!
