What City I Would Like To Visit

This is for the blogroll thing I am in. The topic is what city in any country would you like to visit. The city I would like to visit is not really a city all but an Indonesian island, Bali.

I have always been obsessed with Bali and the culture. For instance Gamelan music ( a popular percussion orchestra music) has always been a favorite of mine. Whenever I listen to it I feel changed somehow. I love Indonesian food, particular favorites include Nasi Goreng and Satay.

Now I guess one would assume that that wouldn't be enough reason to want to visit the place but the main aspect of my desire to go there is how I feel about going there. Whenever I read a travel book or watch a documentary on Bali I feel this buzz go through me. It seems like a place that I would adore, a place where I could feel inspired and challenged.

My only concern is that I know Bali is a popular tourist destination, I'd hate to have to share my Bali with some ignorant tourist who only wishes to party. Or worst have the locals think that I am one of those ignorant tourists.

Still if I ever manage to make it there it would be a dream come true.

I've been to Bali, and it's an interesting place. You do get some 'yobbo' tourists there, but it's still a great part of the world to visit.

And the Nasi Goreng over there is delicious!
