Bali revisited! After years of separation between me and Bali, I’ve finally flown back to where I started blogging travel! To recap how travel inspired me in blogging, you may read back the article about my travel inspiration. Before I share more on my recent comeback to Bali, let’s see what I’ve photographed to update my Bali photo book. Needless to say, it’s a shot on my favourite beach of all time, the Kuta Beach!

Kuta Beach is always my first choice of staying region in Bali. It has not only long but broad and flat sandy beach line, especially during the sunset with low tide. My favourite moment of Kuta Beach has to be when the sun sets and the sky turns into twilight skyscape.
Despite the imminent eruption of Mount Agung since alert escalated to highest level 4 a couple of weeks ago, tourists are still flocking into Bali (including me) lately. It’s understandable. The attractive Kuta Beach is simply irresistible! Being a paradise to surfers across the world especially Australian, Kuta Beach attracts millions of travelers each year.
To avid travelers who has planned to visit Bali, the volcano emergency literally affects people residing within the 12KM radius region from Mount Agung. Kuta Beach is some 75KM away. The biggest threat to tourists is the possible closure of airport and cancellation of flights due to volcanic ash when the volcano finally erupts. But currently, no data indicating when it will erupt, or whether it will.
I’m fortunate to have gone back to Bali last week to enjoy the beautiful beach of Kuta. I hope no volcano eruption will actually happen. – Travel Feeder
