Throwback Thursday

Back to last year when we visited a Buddhist temple in Bali (and lots of Hindu ones too).

Ganesha

Thought I’d share this photo of a statue of Ganesha that I came across on my holiday to Bali.

Home again, home again, jiggedy jig*

(*bonus point if you recognise the quote)

So I’m back from my travels.  3 nights in Bangkok, 11 nights in Bali and 3 nights in Dubai.
I keep a travel journal, so there will be a link to the site I’ll post that on.  Means that this page isn’t clogged with almost 3 weeks worth of drivel that some people won’t be interested in, but anyone that weirdly might want to read about my travels, can nip over to my Blogger page and read the full story.

As a morsel to whet your appetites, here’s a selfie I took of me in a Balinese sarong (required for all for temple visits, so I thought what the hell and bought one.  Also, there’s plenty of people – male and female – both locals and tourists, just wearing them as everyday wear.)

Last day

So, last day of work before my trip. Off to Bali, with a 3 night stop in Bangkok on the way out.
I’ve never been to Thailand or Bali, and I’m really looking forward to this.
I’ve just missed the Bali Spirit Fest, which was a couple of weeks ago, so that’s a bit of a shame, but I’m taking a yoga mat with me, so I don’t have any excuses.
Bangkok is going to be a food-fest for me.  It’s great timing as I’ve just finished my diet today.  Lost 6 1/2 inches round my belly.  I need to make sure that I keep to sensible eating now and not get back into bad habits.
Weirdly though, not that I CAN eat bread and sweets if I want, I seem to have lost the craving.  That’s not a bad thing, so long may that continue.

Winding down

As I type this, the last 3D print I’m doing this semester is currently being printed.  This afternoon I’ve got some sensors to start wiring up, and then I can breathe a sigh when that’s done, and just think about the trip I’m taking.

3 nights in Bangkok, 11 in Bali and 3 in Dubai.  I’ve got a couple of trips and a surf lesson booked for Bali.  My recently replaced yoga mat is coming with me so I can get each day off to a good start, and I’m coming off the diet which has seen me lose just under 7″ from my belly, and the sensible eating regime (not going back to eating processed foods packed full of sugar, and continuing to eat salads, which I never used to.  Increasing the amount of excercise (I cut back due to lack of carbs) should keep me from returning to my previously comfortably padded belly.
I’m not deluding myself, I know I’ll put a bit back on, but I need to stick to sensible eating, and only eat junk once a month on games night.
