THIS IS WHY PEOPLE LOVE BALI
There’s no place like Bali! This exotic Indonesian paradise is where you will get an experience you will never forget. The first time when I fell in love with this wonderful island was 6 years ago. I completed my communication studies, saved enough money, and decided to pack my bags for a 4-month backpacking trip in Southeast Asia.

The Bali Lifestyle
I remember driving the motorbike for the first time, watching the magical sun rise on the Gili islands, the super nice local food corners where I tasted spices I have never had tasted before, my first surfing experience, the wonderful rice fields … and a lot more. Who wouldn’t wanna go back? Those 3 weeks in 2011 were definitely not enough, so it was time to go back together to Bali! The month December is maybe not the best month due to rain season, but we were super lucky. Sunny Days and blue Skies every day! I started on my own and Marlieke flew in at New Year’s Eve. We fell in love all over again!

What to do on Bali?
Bali is known for its healthy foodspots, surfing, yoga, picturesque beaches, friendly locals, party’s and of course cheap and nice massages. Bali has you covered! Apparently Bali sometimes has a bad reputation, especially Kuta where many tourists come to party. But trust me, there are plenty of areas where you can chill and enjoy your holiday big time and avoid the crowd.
I travelled from Uluwatu, Canggu, Ubud, Seminyak Nusa Lembognon and Nusa Ceningan back to Uluwatu and ended in Seminyak. I forced myself to relax and chill and my goal was to find the best places to do so and share these with you! So in the upcoming weeks you will find the best tips and my favorite hotspots! Get inspired!
