The Bukit

"Discovered" in the early '70s by traveling Aussies, Bali's Bukit peninsula is blessed with tradewinds, an open swell window, beautiful cliffs and small pocket beaches, warm water, and barreling lefts. We spent some quality time on the bluffs, on the sand, and in the ocean.


Canggu, Bali is a rural region that has recently captured the eyes and hearts of the world's best surfers as a sanctuary and retreat from Bali's hustle and bustle. Moni and I enjoyed our bike rides through the rice paddies and villages to the ocean each day, sharing the road with motorcycles, barking dogs, and children around every corner yelling, "Hello Mister!"

Bali 2008

Moni and I visited the Island of the Gods, Bali, in August 2008 to celebrate our honeymoon. We started in the rural backwoods of Canggu, biking to the beach each day and visiting local temples on the high tide line.
