Sometimes it’s good and easy to make decisions fast, at other times it’s better to give it some more consideration or just leave it for a bit and see what more comes to mind in the meantime.
We’re living in that type of space at the moment; making some decisions fast and let others take more time.
Like the situation of where to stay from tomorrow. We’ve had so many ideas coming up, and there’s been some uncertainty regarding what we’d really like to do next. The only two things that sort of boxes us in, are the 30-day visa here in Indonesia, and our next house sit that starts on December 18th in Singapore.
What do we really want to do here in Bali? We accepted the fact that the decision of where to go from here on would take some time, and meanwhile we’ve been looking at maps and online to get inspiration. Finally, this morning, we booked a stay in Amed on Bali’s east coast where snorkling is supposed to be great, the nature holds many varieties and there are less tourists.
We also got a new idea; to extend our visa and stay in Indonesia the whole time until we leave for Singapore. So we tried that idea, we even went to a visa
extension office – and then dropped the idea again. The price of an extension, in our situation, was 2 million Rupiah per visa and for that money we can fly someplace else and rather come back to Indonesia another time.
Where we’ll go when our visa expired is not yet clear – so we let it be for a while and know that a decision (and new ideas) will come.
