The cold in New Jersey is completely and utterly unbearable! ZERO degrees is about 60 degrees lower than I am comfortable with.
Quite a few times a day I visualize getting on a plane in Newark, layered in clothing, sleeping like a baby then landing in Denpasar and stripping down to my “unmentionables”. I am not sure what the Balinese will think about me in my skivvies but, if the weather doesn’t start acting right, I am liable to have that reaction. Just a warning!
On top of having to be bundled and layered, I am the girl who gets home from work and before the door can even close behind me, my bra is strewn across the banister. I can’t even. Literally. Comfort is so important to me. I have even validated wearing joggers to work by telling my boss that I can’t focus when I am in real clothes! My office OOTD (outfit of the day) today was an oversized Pompton Lakes High School Black Hooded Sweatshirt, a pair of black leggings, a scarf, socks and slippers. I know it isn’t corporate-casual but, remember I work better like this!
Needless to say, I look forward to the warmer days ahead.
The Villa accommodations they arranged look amazing online, just steps away from the beach, with all kinds of diving and snorkeling spots within walking distance. Each villa is open air style (meaning NO WALLS) just you and the beauty of nature, fully equipped kitchens, separate living areas, air-conditioning, private balconies, desks, and private bathrooms (outdoor bathing) which looks amazing!
Yesterday something VERY exciting happened on Instagram! I was left a message from a person who I have followed for years letting me know that she will be in Bali TOO on the same retreat! I cannot wait to meet her in person! She is traveling with someone, so they will be rooming together, so I am still eagerly awaiting to meeting of my roommate!
Less than 2 weeks away, I am so excited!
