    Uncorking Bordeaux And The Hidden Wonders Of The Medoc.
    Uncorking Bordeaux And The Hidden Wonders Of The Medoc.First published in Arabian Airlines in-flight magazine November 2017.When we think, or read about โ€œBordeaux,โ€ oneโ€™s immediate impression is that this is a city built on wine.

    #1 I tried to get on last night and I even clicked on your notification @Paul Walters but I've been having issues with the beBee platform on my chromebook for some reason. I lost your page after I clicked, I got 2 large beBee Icons that appeared instead of a blog. Even now as I type, the orange lines that appear when you begin to type a name and box pops up with the same first names... well the orange lines are still going as I write this.

    Anyhow, I'm curious, how much of Bali will this affect? The entire Island or the area closest to the Volcano? This is really sad and I hope everyone is safe. How far are you from the Volcano? I agree, the trickle down will be felt for quite some time. It will probably affect the climate too. I remember when Mt. St. Helen erupted in the 80's, we had strange lightening storms almost the entire summer and tons of orange/brownish clouds.

    #10 See that is why I LOVE Anthony! Travel with an agenda is WORK. If I'm going to travel; I want to chill, take in what sites take my fancy, explore the local culture (another thing I love about watching Chef Anthony). I want to rent a scooter (what are they called in Bali Paul?) and just keep turning corners until my butt is sore from sitting. I despise tourist traps, have no interest in visiting them. It's sad that too many beautiful places have been turned into them. Every time I hear of some gorgeous spot off-the-beaten-track someone has found I want to scream them; "Shut up, don't tell anyone or they'll build a freakin Hilton, smack dab in the middle of it".
    I know, I was one that needed to check on you and management @Paul Walters But considering you're the only person I know in Bali...well I had to check in!
    Keep us apprised. I think @Ken Boddie recommendations on how to appease the volcano gods is spot on. Better than my thought that you'd get under management's skin and she'd sacrifice you!

    Your self proclaimed appreciation of the creative arts of pontification and procrastination, I'm sure, Pak Paul, will see you through the 'inconvenience' of regular earth tremors and the odd passing ash cloud. As I may have suggested before, I have it on good religious advice (not to mention common sensical self preservation) that the best way to appease the wrath of the Balinese Hindu gods of the mountain is to establish yourself in the fully reclining position, in your hammock, with your raised cushioned head pointing towards Gunung Agung and hence looking away from the mountain (this will also maximise your slumber potential and avoid you from being distracted by the sight of flames and flashes of white hot lava tumbling down the upper slopes). Appeasement should continue, at least 5 times per day, by imbibing that magical tropical prophylactic, the gin and tonic, or until the worshipper (in this case, you) reaches a state of blissful nirvana.

    So glad to hear that you're safe @Paul Walters and that the eruption hasnโ€™t interrupted your current routine of sloth and procrastination. :) I see that you didnโ€™t lose your sense of humour even in a situation like this. Wishing you and yours all the best. Stay well.

    Another truly authentic @Paul Walters narrative. Yes indeed it's the cataclysmic whacks from time to time that force us to pause (after leveling the playing fields) and to change direction. Perhaps greater wisdom about the construct of life and its applications will emerge once this has passed. Wishing you and yours well in the coming days and may you continue to be fruitful and multiply (in the literary sense of course).

    @Paul Walters Good to hear all is well and that you are safe. Not on the same scale as Bali, but you will know how the once quiet and serene Natal beaches have also been taken over by developers, time-share and holiday accommodation. Sad to see the unspoiled being invaded permanently by buildings, for a once or twice a year holiday visit. Perhaps the situation in Bali has one upshot - you will be having a quiet Christmas period. A fine read and thanks Paul.

    #8 @CityVP ๐Ÿ Manjit I must interject here with my thoughts; there is a world of difference between a "Traveler" and a "Tourist" and I've written about it;

    "I'm reminded of a quote by Chef Anthony Bourdain,

    "Be a traveler, not a tourist".

    A "tourist" has an agenda, has preconceived ideas, expectations, ego, is open and prone to disappointment, and is unavailable to receive knowledge because of these traits.

    A "traveler" is open for anything, receptive to anything, is not disappointed as they have no expectations; has no agenda; retains their childlike curiosity and naivety throughout their life. A "traveler" truly is a "Stranger in a Strange Land".

    From; https://www.bebee.com/producer/@randall-burns/a-stranger-in-a-strange-land

    (In case you're interested this article delves into greater detail illustrating, amongst other aspects, the differences)
    Randall Burns
    02/12/2017 #9 Randall Burns
    Great post @Paul Walters Wonderful illustration of "Mother Nature"teaching us, yet again, that we need to pay heed and not be so arrogant in our treatment of the world. Glad to hear that you're safe and sound, stay that way. The last time I was in Bali was 20 years ago, I think that I may be disappointed in seeing the development that is going on, it was such a pristine, beautiful and innocent environment and culture.

    The last album of 10CC I purchased nearly 40 years ago was called "Bloody Tourists". I could understand their track "Dreadlock Holiday" but not the title of the album. Until now that is, having now read the Daily Mail article about tourists taking selfies in front of the smoking volcano. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5134915/Tourists-pose-selfies-Balis-Mt-Agung.html

    I once had a big argument about the distinction between a traveler and a tourist, and in the end I settled for the other person's arguments that there is no difference between a traveler and tourist. There is a difference however between a tourist and a bloody tourist.

    An economy so dependent on one trade is putting all one's eggs in one basket, so that is a fairly obvious recipe for economic hazard, but maybe what is not counted as a cost is the dumbing down of a culture and the loss of cultural artifacts in serving those bloody tourists - and that without the explosive power of a destructive volcano to wrestle with.

    A bit scary, @Paul Walters, meaning the impact on the economy of Bali. Also, I agree with @David B. Grinberg about people who choose to remain on the island.

    02/12/2017 #4 David B. Grinberg
    Nice blogging buzz, as usual, Paul. I agree about paying "heed" which is why I don't understand people who choose to remain on the island when they can leave by boat, according to news reports. This sounds much worse than the equivalent of riding out a bad storm or hurricane. Any thoughts on this? Thanks again for another interesting and timely read. Let's hope that volcano does blow its lid.

    Although I'm not planning on becoming a travel blogger, I've found interesting rules-of-thumb for getting noticed at SNs, as pretty much they apply to other topics.
    But what I've liked the most: not just because someone intends to do something, he has to believe he is able to or is really willing to take the effort and survive periods of non-rewarding work or low motivation.
    And I'd say the latter is the most important, even enough by itself, at least to expect some results.

    @Paul Walters is also my favorite travel blogger. I give travel bloggers A LOT of credit because it's very time consuming. You left a lot of great tips @Javier ๐Ÿ beBee. I haven't used Instagram in a while, I keep telling myself I need to get back on there. Once your away from Instagram or any Social Platform for any length of time it's like starting all over again because people move on. I also recommend MyTweetPack for promotion on Twitter, it works great and simplifies so much.

    Javier: thanks for such an interesting blogging buzz. You provide important insights and awesome advice on what it takes to be a successful travel blogger in today's crowded social media space. I'm glad you highlighted the phenomenal travel blogging of @Paul Walters, whom beBee is very fortunate to have producing such unique buzz and honey. Anyone who aspires to become a relevant travel blogger should read, study and learn from Paul's style and professionalism.
    I would also note that travel blogging is similar in many ways to being a multi-media journalist. You must not only possess excellent writing and reporting skills, but it's also essential need to excel in digital photography and video technology to tell the story beyond just words. This is where the Live Buzz feature can come in handy for practice, per my recent post https://www.bebee.com/producer/@dbgrinberg/how-to-catch-more-buzz-with-bebee-live-video.
    In essence, Paul is a master of this trade and deserves many accolades for his exemplary contributions to Producer. Thank so much, Paul, for all YOU do! And thank you, Javier, for shining a spotlight on Paul's terrific travel blogging.

    #4 @Ken Boddie . Ah detective Boddie, you are so right. This piece was written a few months ago when I was in France so the travel distances were not that taxing. Traffic chaos due to get even more interesting with the big roundabout leading to the airport to be closed in order to build an underpass. Where the traffic will go to is anyone's guess but I guess they have clever engineers and traffic planners...stay posted!

    A towering tale, Pak Paul, to titillate the tramping traveller. But, what with the traffic in and around Denpasar and Kuta these days, how the hell did you get to the airport from Sanur by Friday, never mind Bali to Mestia and back plus 1500 words?

    #36 I can recommend the book I read: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k. It's actually a really fun and interesting read and you'll definitely laugh. It's all about choosing our values carefully and this simple fact: choose carefully what we give a F*** about and examining our real values. If you don't care for colorful language, this is definitely not the book to read! :-)

    #34 So much fun @Cyndi wilkins! I love not being on a schedule... I don't like to plan much when I'm on vacation, I'd rather wing it and be surprised. Strolling, photo taking, eat and drinks- wonderful :)) Pam did get up a lot earlier than me so she hit the beach early in the mornings. We had fun doing dinners and one night we both cooked a meal at the condo. @Pamela ๐Ÿ Williams brought a hibachi grill and made burgers while I cooked corn on cob, baked beans and macs/cheese. No worries, my part was simple since it was from a can or a box... just had to shuck the corn LOL. I think she felt relieved to be able to work since some things came up that were not expected, still felt bad for her!! She wouldn't want me to though ;-)

    Well Cindy, I looked at it this way; this is a sort of new job and in actuality I didn't qualify for paid vacation but my bosses still approved and didn't like it that I ended up working so much. Unlike the long trek Lisa has I can hop in the car any given morning and be on the beach by lunch.. plus I had my time. Sunrise on the Ocean is the best time of day. I didn't get on the computer until after 9 so that gave me 3 to 4 hours of pure ocean bliss every morning. I was a happy camper! I was happy as could be for Lisa to explore and click away. The ocean and a good book was all I needed#34

    We have been so fortunate to be experiencing an extended summer...I managed to get in one last swim in the ocean a couple of weeks ago when the South was having all those hurricanes...The storm surge pushed all that warm water up the Eastern seaboard and we were gifted with a few extra weeks of summer here in New England;-)

    Loved the photos!!! Absolutely fabulous...I almost feel like I was there;-)

    Sounds like you had a calming break, Lisa. Long strolls along the beach, with the smell of ozone and the breaking waves, plus the absence of deadlines or commitment tend to have that effect, what say you?
