The beach in Bali
My name is Mike Henry and I am currently living on the island of Bali in Indonesia. I am originally from Melbourne, Australia.

I have actually been living overseas for most of my life, including 10 years in Japan, two years in China and now about one year in Bali.

I moved to Bali because I wanted a change in lifestyle. Ever since the first time I visited Bali, I knew I wanted to go back again for a longer period of time. There are so many great things about Bali including the culture, the people, the tropical weather and the many different places to visit in Bali.   more ...

Sheldon Archer, Probolinggo

Posted by: Jamie on Tuesday November 29, 2011 (18:39:35)   (3642 Reads)
My name is Sheldon Archer. In 2003 I was 69 years old, living in Sheffield and rather bored with life. No financial problems and a nice family but I guess that there was no real love in my life (sure, I had a few lady friends!) My only daughter from a previous relationship was living in the USA and we didn't get to meet up very often. I really thought that my relationship days were over and I was destined to fade away and die shortly. Very depressing. Lucky I'm not a drinker.

I spent a lot of time on the Internet surfing around and happened to run into an Indonesian guy from Probolinggo, and we became friends. Had to get the atlas out to find out where Indonesia was; talk about ignorant. He kept on inviting me to visit him. I considered the trip, about 36 hours with a stop over in Dubai to Jakarta, and then a flight to Surabaya where he said that he would meet me.   more ...
