Well, I have been on vacation numerous times and once I had a strange holiday. So I’d like to talk about that tour. Last December, I had been on a tour of Bali, Indonesia. I had organized this tour for my parents and I. Additionally few of my friends also had booked their air tickets for the same flight.
So, all of us safely arrived at Bali International Airport at the right time. Based on our plan, we must have visited the temples there. However, this tour turned out going to a very strange place, a village of a human skull. That village has a tradition that after anyone dies there instead of burying them, they just throw a dead body away o the road. We all were very scared about that because we never encountered it before. Then I asked the driver about it and then he explained all about the history.
To sum up, this trip was really scary and unexpected. We never thought of such an incident would happen, if visiting any tourist place. I will never forget that holiday in my entire life.
