Hi, my name is Bruce Briscoe, and this is my Bali journal.  I moved to the wonderful paradise of Bali in September 2001.  I live in Ubud, which is in the central part of Bali and is considered the cultural center of Bali.  This site contains my story - from the first idea of moving here; my Hindu Wedding; up to the current adventures I'm having.

Here is a short summary of how I came to be living in Bali 'The Island Of The Gods':

Was asked in June 2001 "why don't you lease your house in Oakland and move to Bali?".  In September 2001, I did just that.  Since arriving here, I have gotten married to a beautiful Balinese woman; 'adopted' two daughters; started a t-shirt business; leased a house near Ubud; started a 'Destination Management Company'; purchased an automobile; went to work as a Director of a 30 man Web Development and Software company in Denpasar; obtained my KITAS, an official 'Temporary Resident' status; obtained my TESOL certificate for teaching English; taught English in Bali and China; visited Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia; planning trips to Vietnam, Cambodia, and the Great Barrier Reef; relaxed; lost weight; and am very happy.
