Our hearts were warmed at this post about one couple’s experience in Bali after winning a vacation as a prize. This was a well-deserved rest, because it was the couple’s first vacation in 12 years! They stayed at a resort in Nusa Dua and got the pampered massage-and-spa treatment.

Naturally, they were thrilled partly just because they didn’t have the kids tagging along. But Bali’s still a great place for kids as well, with the beaches, exotic flora and fauna, and natural beauty everywhere. You’d just want to be sure to pry them away from their iPod and Nintendo DS long enough to look out the window.
