Hi,
I'm flying from Australia, and here there's a lot of talk about all what's happenning in the airports, and the trouble that passenger get.

Schapelle corby...... so my husband and I decided, that we are going to carry a small bag (as small as a school bag) to carry it with us in the plane.

Can someone advice me what exactly would you take for a 12 day trip to bali?? what's a must overthere...

Just thing that we are going to buy our clothes overthere...

Thanks very much

bring a bikini or swim suit, 2 shorts & 2 tees perhaps since u r going to buy overthere; there are a lot of surf shops like roxy, quiksilver etc. bring along sun block as i find it expensive over there.

but u sure that bag is sufficient 4 u to carry souvenir back home? they hv quite a number of luvly stuff to buy

enjoy the sunlight!

If your husband has big size 12 (or larger) feet - bring a spare pair of cheap sneakers. You won't find a replacement pair if you need them.

Spare underwear, undershirts, socks is a must. Some of the new stuff is sprayed with insect repellent so that the moths don't eat them before they are sold. New underwear may irritate "tender areas."

If you stay in cheap places or not - bring a padlock. Lock your bag shut!

The main thing is not to leave your bag unattended. Keep your bag in sight at all times atleast by one or you two. I would even go so far as to check the bag again just before you clear customs.

There are hundreds of foreignors in jail there - not all of them are innocent!

I would definately recommend a sarong - you will need them for the temples.
