"BALI what a feast for body & soul! The tranquil panorama, the terrific people, the spiritual culture: all conspired to produce the best vacation Ive ever had.
We hiked through the lush landscapes, became skilled at new yoga poses, sated ourselves on fresh foods and juices, unwound during relaxing massages, visited colorful festivals and even found time for some great shopping. Our accommodations conjoined the best of privacy and comfort.
Bali was the perfect place to put Kristina Hurrells advice to the test letting go and enjoying the moment. It passed with flying colors."
