Our honeymoon (part two) in Nusa Dua...   Download times...
The second installment of our honeymoon took place a few months after our wedding, in early November 2000... twelve days at the Melia Bali hotel in Nusa Dua.  Bali itself is beautiful, as the pictures here will show, although we weren't convinced that travelling for nineteen hours in economy class was worth it!  The other fly in the ointment was that with a baby on the way, our holiday coincided nicely with the worst of Vanessa's morning sickness. Ouch!     Please note that in order to present large, high-quality pictures, this page may take almost a minute to download completely. The first few pictures will be visible quickly, but please have patience with the rest!

Just after we arrived in Bali, on 4th November 2000 - Vanessa sitting outside the lobby of the Melia Bali hotel in Nusa Dua, where we stayed during our two week holiday.

Little statue...
One of the numerous statues of Balinese gods that adorn every nook like gnomes.

Banana flower.
Odd-looking pod on a banana tree - seen dangling just outside our balcony.  The trees were home to a small colony of squirrels which jumped from leaf to leaf with amazing speed.

Guinea fowl.
Not a Greater Crested Grebe, in fact, but a guinea fowl - one of a small flock (gaggle?) that roamed the hotel grounds.
  Dan in a sarong on the beach.
Relaxing on the beach at dusk, wearing a sarong but looking absolutely nothing like David Beckham...

The pool at Melia Bali hotel - we spent a lot of time here, especially when Vanessa was suffering from her all-day morning sickness and Dan from his dose of Bali belly!
