Some Holiday Reading

Bali for me is an opportunity to recharge the batteries, to take the opportunity to relax and do nothing  – unlike other travel where we are pretty active with planned activities, discovering new places and learning about new environments. As mentioned in my earlier post 365 Places: Bali, I have been coming to Bali since 1981 so in many ways it is like a second home, or more accurately, a second holiday home.

When we are on holidays in Bali, I love to catch up with reading, especially reading for pleasure as I read a lot in my working life – for research and information. Here are some of the books I am reading these holidays:

The Gentle Subversive: Rachel Carson, Silent Spring, and the Rise of the Environmental Movement (New Narratives in American History) by Mark Hamilton Lytle

A Place in the World by Cinda Crabbe MacKinnon

How to Travel Full Time by Colin Wright

These books I read from other times we were here, but I am reading them again as they are all about Bali and it’s culture:

Love and Death in Bali by Vicki Baum

Bali: Sekala & Niskala by Fred B. Eiseman

Yep – reading by the pool, my idea of spending time on holidays 🙂
