Happy Holidays!

Once again we find ourselves in an exotic location for Christmas.  We spent Christmas in Kuala Lumpur after a six week adventure which included four countries (Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand and Malaysia), two trains and nine flights.  We are exhausted and grateful to be home safe and sound.  We plan to do many boat projects and ring in the new year right here on Scholarship. Happy New Year!!  Hugs, Liz, Mark and Dylan

P.S. I am trying to get caught up on some old scroll down to see Bali!!

Catch Up, Part II

Daddy and D, Kuta Beach
After arriving in Bali we spent three days in the crazy area of Kuta/Legian.  Party central of Bali, Kuta is full of bars, shopping and of course the beach.  We were happy to depart Kuta and head inland to the town of Ubud.  Ubud is a haven for expats, yogis, foodies and shoppers.  The countryside is beautiful and full picturesque rice paddies.  The Balinese spirit is in the air as the offerings and temples are absolutely everywhere. You would have to try hard not to find a Balinese ceremony or festival.  We stayed a week and it was wonderful.  I wish we would have taken more photos.  So photogenic!
