My Computer is Back!!!

Yipee, I went to pick up my computer this weekend in Seattle, all is well and so are my 17,890 photos that I have stored in it. The lesson learned is:
1. Pay attention to the moment ( or wander don't off and leave your carry on in a duty free shop, or any other shop)
2. Back up all your photos and other valuable data on an external hard drive.
(I just spent 2 days doing this)
3. Fly Korean Air (they handwrapped the carry on bag AND my computer and Nikon D60 camera AND sent it through in the cabin rather than cargo so that it would arrive in 1 piece! What an an airline!

So I am ready to start posting with a fervor, beginning with my fabulous adventure in Bali.
It actually started on that Korean Air flight back in February.
I had just had a most luxurious flight from SF to Seoul, Korea, tasty meals and snacks as I mentioned in the last post, wonderful movies, non-stop service etc.
I de-planed in Seoul and immediately upon exiting the plane what do I see after flying a million hours (with no sleep?)
LAVAZZA BAR/CAFFE! Lavazza coffee is one of the biggest coffee brands in Italy and they have bar/caffes all over Italy, their coffee is served nationwide and it is delicious! So imagine my delight to find this coffee bar to start out my 2 hour layover in Seoul!
I ordered a triple espresso and watched the sunset over Korea!
Off to a great start of my 5 week Bali adventure. And thanks everyone for your comments on my computer mishap and your welcome back wishes!
