I went to Bali alone, last minute, with only this book as my guide. Recently divorced and 62, I just read and followed her suggestions blindly and they lead me through paradise. I caught her passion and honesty, made friends, and found her advice on point and priceless. I read the book. Put it on my kindle, and tore out the itinerary pages and brought them with me. I can’t wait to return. This is the most useful, concise guidebook I have ever used and it gave me the courage to be bold and venture out.
