Bali Dreaming

by Rhianna on June 12, 2014

Last night I went to Bali. I awoke in an ornate wooden four poster bed, draped with a lattice of mosquito netting. Rising to slide the craved wooden door inwards, I walked outside and tasted the rich scent of incense on the air.  The grass was dewy damp and glistening like a field of perfect
