I messed up…

I never thought I would be the kind of person to lose their passport but… I messed up! A month ago, sitting in the comfort of my home back in oh-so-cold-Canada, I thought going from villa to villa in different cities seemed like a great way to see Bali. Airbnb even made it extremely easy for us to do so but… Yesterday, as I was sitting by the pool in villa #4, it all didn’t seem so great anymore!
