Got a Tan in Bintan

The Sawin Family recently got back from a great holiday in Bintan, Indonesia. The trip started off o.k. with a short taxi ride to the ferry terminal in Singapore. What we weren’t prepared for was both kids, along with a bunch of other passengers, getting sick on the somewhat rocky, 45-minute ferry ride to Bintan. Unfortunately, Jean took the brunt of the first explosion since we weren’t prepared with sickness bags. We stayed at The ClubMed which we had stayed at one in Phuket, Thailand before. They are great with the young kids. Riley went into the Petite Club for 2-4 year olds and Grace went into the Mini Club for 5-8 year olds. They had a great time. The staff had them active all day and on a couple occasions, they had performances in the evening. We were lucky enough to meet up with some friends from Singapore there and for the last couple of days, The Stams were in from Hong Kong. Stam and I got a round of golf in at the Ria Bintan golf course which was really great despite the 2 hour rain delay to get the last 3 holes in. All in all, a fantastic holiday of just relaxing on the beach with all inclusive drinks and constant buffets.
