I am planning another long trip but this time I want to avoid as much as possible travel agents, and package holidays. I do the searching but rely on the agent just for tickets. This is my first attempt and I spend hours on the internet searching for a destination, and resorts. I feel great, and it is as if I am taking a trip to these exotic destinations every day!!!

After long hours of thinking we decide to visit Bali for a second time, but this time visit Koh Samui as well.

The time has come, and there is much excitement in the air. In the meantime I am a bit anxious to see if I can make it with all these bookings. It is the first time I dare do such a thing -book on my own!

It is the 14th of August, and we fly with Thai to Bangkok. We have the OLYMPIC GAMES in Athens and there are no buses or taxis because the area our house is located is where the cyclists are going to pass any moment now!!! We have to walk to the nearest Metro Station, and above our heads we see ZEPELIN the air ballon watching every movement from above.

The trip is long and tiring, and I am trying to get some sleep. No matter how hard I try there is no chance. I have some wine....but No... I can't sleep at all. I AM EXCITED! This is the word.

We reach Denpasar Airport and a taxi is waiting to take us to the Rembrandt Hotel which is a centrally located Hotel. Upon arriving, we come across the tour leader we had last year when we were there at that same hotel and to our surprise, he remembered us.

This time, we don't wish to have any of the tours around the city, but arrange with him to be taken to the same Massage House that he had arranged the year before when we were with a group of other people. I could still feel the fingers of the girl and during winter when I feel tired, I dream of those moments at the Massage room. This is what I wanted to do first. After this massage you feel so light - as if you are ready to fly- It is a great treat!

We returned to the hotel, feeling that one small dream was accomplished. In the afternoon we have a short stroll...This time we have no group waiting for us, and I already feel that I have done the right thing- coming on our own.
