Travel with Us ... to Bali & Bangkok

Uluwatu Beach

Uluwatu Beach

As many of you have probably noticed ... Fort Wayne has a distinct lack of white sand beaches. However, there are many in Bali, Indonesia. Why not come with us?!

Actually, with our sister brand, Spaces Quarterly; brought to you by the same core people. Founder Tony Frantz and editor-in-chief Laura Noggle, to be exact.

Why travel with us? Well, we've done the legwork; Laura lived in Asia for seven years, and is eager to share the eastern love with fellow midwesterners. Also, we're available for meetings regarding the trip, if you'd like to get a feel for the people leading the expedition.

What kinds of things would the trip involve? Glad you asked.

Hug a honey bear, thenglide out over the surf on a giant palm swing at the Pod Chocolate Factory and Cafe —  located within an elephant camp. Hike up an active volcano to catch the sunrise, explore the monkey forest, and relax on the buttery shortbread sands of Dream Beach. These sentences may seem far from reality, but they’re feasible and on the schedule for the first portion of Spaces Quarterly’s latest expedition to Bali.

Bali, Indonesia: August 20 - 27, 2015

While you may instantly object to such exotic travel so soon ... what better way to mix up your summer vacation, than a trip to Southeast Asia?! If Bali doesn't work for you, there's always an extended weekend in Bangkok, Thailand.

See the largest reclining Buddha in the giant Buddhist temple complex of Wat Phoexplore the Grand Palace grounds, and see what’s up with Wat Arunthe Temple of Dawn. Enjoy dinner above the hustle at Sirocco (which earned extra publicity in the Hangover 2 movie), the world’s “highest alfresco restaurant,” and a chance to grab some great snaps of the Bangkok skyline and Chao Phraya River.
