A Photo Gallery
by Andy and Susanne Carvin
This gallery is a visual journal of our
honeymoon in Bali. Over the course of 17 days we managed to travel a
circuit around the eastern half of the island (see map).
On this website you'll find photos of our visits to temples, rice
paddies and dance performances -- as well as photos of some of the
friendliest people on earth. We hope you enjoy the pictures contained
in the 21 photo exhibits below.
