Where we stayed in Bali, Indonesia

This blogpost is a first. The first time I've ever written a post about a trip straight after coming home and if you've been following for a while you know this NEVER happens.

Back in May 2017 we flew to Bali for our 5 year wedding anniversary, and on the way there we had a long layover in Taipei.

Our last spring in Japan and we had to go out with a bang! So I met some friends up north to see  cosmos and cherry blossoms. First stop was this hidden cosmos field in Nago and although I didn't take as many photos as when I went to the field in Kin, I really enjoyed my time there.
