i am wishing to one day live in bali but I am wanting to live in a villiage as the locals do somewhere nice on the coast.i am coming to bali for three months next year to check out the areas that are not on the tourist track,i am only on a fixed pension and figure that will be enough as I am wanting to live as close to the locals as possible,i am so interested and honored to meet anyone who is living there now and to receive their advice and information,i am a spiritual person and I live my life in a spiritual way of kindness and compassion to all,i love my daily yoga and meditations and would love to see a community who is involved in these practices are the locals into the meditations and yoga?

    Hi Susan,

    What you seek will not be difficult to find here outside of the southernmost areas of Bali. Prior to your 3 month visit here you might want to learn Indonesian which will be very useful in staying with Balinese families in the more remote areas of Bali.

    Welcome to VT and feel free to post questions on the forums.

    Kind regards, Roy

    Many thanks! You are too kind my friend! These days I rather prefer to forget about birthdays, as they only remind me of my age!

    God's blessings and safe travel for you and yours!

Thanks Ubudian for your answer to 'Is it cheap to live in Bali more than 6 months'. You covered some hard to find information. Much appreciated.

I've come back to these pages and pictures many times, and find them as fascinating the 10th time as the first. It's a rare and intimate glimpse at a gentle people in a very beautiful place. Thank you for sharing these, Roy.

    Wow Kate! A million thanks for your kind and encouraging words. I think all of us who have been on VT for a long while sometimes wonder, “is it really worth the effort?” You have certainly answered that question for me! Cheers, and many thanks again!
