Destination wedding in Bali

We just got back from our trip to Asia, with the main purpose to go to my sister's wedding in Bali. We were gone for a total of two weeks, and it was a busy two weeks! We flew Cathay Pacific, and since Dan had never been to Hong Kong, I planned a quick one night layover in Hong Kong (though we eventually ended up staying an extra night since our flight to Jakarta was canceled due to Typhoon Vicente). A last minute work trip also came up, so we booked a last minute tip to Singapore towards the end.  So overall, we visited Hong Kong, Jakarta, Bali, and Singapore, all in two weeks. There was a lot of flying for sure.

Due to our tight schedule, we didn't have much time at each location. We did get to see many of our friends though in Indonesia and Singapore, so that was nice. I also surprisingly got some work done while in Singapore. :)

The highlight of the trip was definitely my sister's wedding in Bali as well as our first time flying first class - hopefully not our last :)!
