I never thought I would ever travel 25 hours to get to any destination! Life is full of surprises -- welcome to Bali!
I always have a great time with Vicki, and the time flew by with my travel partner! When she and I saw the kayak on our first day at the beach, there was no question that we would take it out. We came across a small, unoccupied boat and I dared Vicki to climb onboard. Of course, she took the dare! As she was stepping into the boat, she lost her balance and we tipped over. My hat was drenched, the cocktails were spilled, and we couldn't seem to climb back into the kayak. What you didn't see was a local man swam up and helped us after 20 minutes of struggling! What a crazy fun morning!
The ride to the elephants was not fun at all! The roads in Bali seem to go straight for a bit and then there are literal "L" shaped curves. We were all carsick! As bad as I felt for Vicki when she was dry-heaving, it was absolutely hilarious!
At this point, I had not spent a lot of time with Lizzie. I was surprised to find out she was having issues with Tamra over her birthday party when we were on the elephants. That night, dinner was a little boring. I was actually considering trying to push Vicki in the water to spice things up! I excused myself to use the restroom and scout out the water and when I returned, there was a lot of yelling going on between Lizzie and Tamra. For once, it was not something about me!
I told Vicki and Tamra that I would go up to their room and meet them when they left. As I was getting ready to go, Lizzie and Danielle apologized to me. I was a bit taken aback, but they said that they had misjudged me largely based on statements made by Tamra. I was floored when Lizzie told me Tamra had told everyone on the trip about the "confidential" email. After her apology, the last thing I thought she would do was betray me with others.
I don't understand why Tamra is saying such damaging and false statements about my character, and I want to get down to the bottom of it.
Stay tuned for the end of our Bali trip next week!
