Bali Postcard Contest

OK lurkers, it’s that time again. Time for postcards from exotic places.

My last postcard extravaganza was back when I was in Palau. This time I’ll be sending postcards from Bali.

I have two objectives in doing this: First, I’m trying to flush out people who read and never comment. It is nice to know who is actually visiting your site. Second, I’d like to increase the number of RSS subscribers.

You just need to do the following:

1) Sign up to get updates via RSS or email. If you haven’t done it already, click on the links on the top of the column on the left. Make sure to do this.

2) Send an email to with “Bali Postcard Contest” in the subject.

3) Include your name and an address where I can send the postcard. It can be a PO Box, your work, whatever. I don’t keep a mailing list, I just need the address to send the postcard. Remember to put your country on the address.

4) Tell me how you first found the site and what you like/hate about it. Anything really. Remember, I travel alone so I enjoy getting email from people who read the site. If there is anything you think I should see/do in Australia, let me know. I got several good tips from people on what to see in Japan from my last contest.

I’ll use to pick 20 people to send postcards to, so you’re odds are not bad. I’ll also pick an additional 3 people to send some small knick-knacks to. This will be something small like a necklace or a bracelet which I can buy from local vendors. I’ll send the winners an email asking them what sort of thing they’d like.

The contest will be running until I leave Bali, which I’m guessing will be in about a week, so the earlier you send me an email the better.

Also, while I’m on the self promotion train, if you haven’t already, take a few seconds and vote for me at The 2008 Bloggers Choice Awards.

I’m off to Kuta beach and going to arrange my trip to go see the Komodo Dragons.

    We went on a honeymoon trip to Bali, we stay in nusa dua. When we booked tour, I was taken aback by the very low price of the hotel, and I was afraid that he would disappoint me, but no, the hotel was amazing … very cozy, clean, spacious rooms .. beautiful garden with pond, and in it are teeming with “mad” fish, near which were stopped by the tourists to feed them with bread, a green area, and I would not call it a small, all matches hotel.. The people at the pool is not so much, and I will refute the rumors that have to get up at 7 am, to take a lounger on the beach, free lager can be found at any time. Guide services world without limite, we have not used, because had time to get acquainted with a woman who gave us the contacts of the local English speaking driver, he told me many interesting things, very cheerful, a wonderful man and a tour takes twice as cheaper.he give us various gifts and tell details, where to go, where good and reasonable prices. His name putra, since its well known, in case the need to leave his phone number: 081805338662 you will not regret it. In general, Bali is very beautiful and exotic place, there are very friendly people! entertainment very much, enough for all, both for youth and adults. We are pleased to be back there and I advise everyone to go there to fly … it’s unforgettable!

    Hi Gary:

    Wish things would have worked out for you in visiting Komodo, thought it interesting. That is how things play out sometimes. Have fun in Australia. Work w/ a guy who just got back from there and said it is awesome.
    Well, happy travels !!!

    Gary, you advertise on my site often so I always like to stop by and see what you are up to. I hope you get some traffic from my site. I have a postcard slideshow that I do on The Savvy Tourist so I am going to send you an e-mail so you can send me a postcard for my collection.
    Happy Travels!

    What a great site, and what a way for people to see and travel with out having to leave their cubicles!! Or are not allowed to leave the glass laden office buildings to often!

    What a neat idea :D!
    Postal service over here isn’t so great, so I’m not gonna opt in, but I might borrow that idea one of these days ;)
