semi-overcast 30 °C

Selamat Siang!

This is one of the very last times I will be writing my blog on Bali. Grand Tour is coming to an end and everyone is leaving Bali this. All assignments are handed in, all presentations are done and the tests. For our final presentation I received an 7.1. Overall I am very happy with my results from the two Grand Tour minors. Between all the partying and such, I still manage to pull of to get some good grades.

Ok... starting where I left you off. I was waiting on my air plane towards Holland because my grandma passed away. I am not going to write how my time was in Holland because that is not part of my Asia experience. Only few things I am gonna say is that is was cold and sad. Happy to be with my family and friends, but it made me realize I am not ready to go back to The Netherlands at all and I think I never will. On thursday night 12th of January I arrived back on Bali. I was picked up by a lovely family from a friend of mine in Holland. Not knowing in what time zone I was living and travelling for 16 hours, I was completely KO. The next day I had my last day of school and after that it was time to catch up with my friends. That one week in Holland felt like forever!! At night we went out to ofcourse La Favela. The day after we went out to La Favela again. I do not know what it is about this place, but I just really like it. They play all sort of music, the people that come there are such a mixed crowd. On sunday we had another birthday and we spent the whole day at the beach club and in the evening went out for diner with a group. This time I decided not to go out because yeah... La Favela is not the cheapest place. On monday I decided to pamper myself a little bit and went to get a pedicure and a massage. That night we went to a crazy mexican restaurant called Motel Mexicola. This feels like a big mexican canteen with very loud music and the waiters were pulling everyone out their chairs to dance. Ofcourse I got pulled out as well and danced a little bit. After this we decided to go for some more drinks and a little dance in La Favela, but this time we made sure we went back home on time. The next we went to the beach to go for a long walk on the beach. Unfortunately the tide was very high so we couldn't pass a certain area and be accident we discovered a very nice beach bar with bean bags in front. There are a lot of places in Bali on the beach with bean bags but the music was so nice and the whole atmosphere. So we stayed there to watch a beautiful sunset which you can see on the pictures that I uploaded this week. I already went to this place 4 times now this week, because it is so chilled and relaxed and not expensive at all! On wednesday I did not do a lot, went for a coffee and lunch to Seminyak and in the evening just chilling at the hotel with the other students. On thursday we had our last fieldtrip of the module. This fieldtrip consists of going to the Mandara spa in Nusa Dua for a treatment. Not bad right....? After this it was finally weekend, because we had such a hard week at school not! The only last things for school that we had to do was finish our presentation for our business plan and prepare for the test on monday. So for the weekend we prepared for school and relaxed a little bit more.

Everyone is leaving within now and following three days. These five months went by so quick it is crazy. Luckily for me, I am staying abroad for one more month. My mother is coming on the 30th of January. The 12th of February we are flying to Sydney and after a week of Sydney we are flying to Singapore. I am so excited for this, going to 2 new countries which I always wanted to see. So still some more blogs to come with some new stories!

Selamat Tinggal!
