Britten was just 22 years old when he was caught in the blast. It was his first time in Bali.
"I flew in, was here for six hours and I got blown up," he said. Ten years on, he says with more than a hint of relief, "I'm in a place mentally and physically that I couldn't have dreamed of."
This is his eighth trip to Bali since the bombings, and another step in his personal journey from terror to a place of strength and peace.
"Just walking down the street I'm bumping into people I've met, or even seen in a paper, and you can just tell, you look at each other in the eyes and you can tell go, 'yep, you've been there, you've done it,'" he said.
"You have a handshake and a cuddle and a cry and you move on. It's quite surreal; it's like we've known each other, all these people, for so long, but never met."
While some may see the 10 year mark as a time to let go, Britten says, for him, the significance of the date won't fade over time.
"Ten years does mark a significant stepping off point, but for me, 11, 12, 15, 20 years is going to feel exactly the same. When I wake up in the morning and I get changed I don't see anything different each day. I see the scars of the burns that I got.
"For me each year is going to be exactly the same."
