    Barack Obama and his family officially moved out of the White House in January this year, and since leaving his role as President of the United States he has been taking a well-deserved break.

    He bought an absolutely incredible new house, he has been going out for swoon-worthy dinners with Justin Trudeau and he headed of to the British Virgin Islands and went kitesurfing with Richard Branson.

    And the former President has opted for another adventure-packed holiday with his family, this time flying over to Bali for a ten day vacation. He has already been spotted white water rafting with Michelle, Sasha and Malia on the Indonesian island, and judging by this picture they’re having a cracking time.

    Awww. Just look at those dad shorts.

    The family also took a hike through a rice terrace in Jatiluwih, and we are not at all jealous of their holiday. Not one bit. Because it looks like it’s probably about to rain there anyway, right?

    Barack lived in the Indonesian capital, Jakarta, with his mother and stepfather for four years as a child, which he spoke about in his book, Dreams From My Father.

    We can’t wait to see what else the Obamas get up to over the next week…
