Immigration Minister Brendan O’Connor and Senator Carr attended the forum, in a closed session that involved 37 countries, all of who attended and agreed to engage law enforcement and their expertise along with training organizations to coordinate any crackdowns on human smuggling.

How to Travel with only Carry-On Luggage

Carry-On Luggage

If the lure of Bali villas or beach-side resorts is too strong to resist, then it might be time to take that much-needed vacation. However, if you’re on a budget or you don’t like the hassle of having to check in luggage, then the thought of carry-on luggage might be appealing. But, how on earth do you fit everything into a carry-on bag? It’s possible, so find out how below.

Know Airline Limits

Every airline you fly with is going to have a different limit for carry-on bags. Some let you have both a handbag or satchel as well as a backpack, while others allow you only one. Some have size capacities not that much different than check-in luggage, yet some airlines merely have a weight capacity. Before you go ahead and purchase your ticket, read their fine print. Find out what kind of bag is going to be suitable for flying with you, and will it be big enough?

Wear Your Bulkiest Clothing

While staying in Bali villas evokes that image of sunshine, tropical climes, and bikinis, there is every possibility you may find yourself chilly at some point – at least in the evening. Therefore, you’re going to need a jacket. Rather than take up half of the available space in your bag, it’s in your best interests to wear it on the plane, then back home again. While it might not be jacket weather, it will save a significant amount of space in your bag. Therefore, if you’re looking to save space in your carry-on luggage, it’s helpful to wear all your bulkiest clothing on the plane.

5 Northern Bali Tourist Destinations

Northern Bali

Bali has a lot to offer and while Southern Bali remains the main focus, the secret is out about just what Northern Bali has to offer. Let’s look at 5 Northern Bali tourist destinations that are certainly worth exploring.

#1 Trunyan

Trunyan is unique in that it remains one of Bali’s villages that still live a conservative life that has not been affected by the growing buzz around them. Local women are not allowed to go to the cemetery, because the locals believe if they do, then the village will suffer a natural disaster. You’ll enjoy the local culture here – it really is fascinating. Trunyan is in North-East Bali and you need to take a 30-45 minute boat ride across Lake Batur to reach the village, which is pretty special too!

#2 Pancasari

Pancasari is known for its strawberry production, which has been going on since the 1980s. It’s a great atmosphere here for tourists to enjoy – an agro-tourism industry. You will also want to visit Lake Buyan, and enjoy the beauty it has to offer.
