Day 5 in Bali – Chill through the jungle

Bali is the only place in southeast Asia that I’ve visited – first of many.  It’s become a popular tourist destination since the release of the book “Eat, Pray, Love” and even more popular when Julia Roberts played the protagonist of the film of the same name. It’s no surprise that I fell in love with the place, filled with art, innate beauty and delicious food. With lush beaches, picturesque landscapes, lovely people and paddles of rice-fields, I didn’t struggle to find something to do on any of the days.

Day 3 in Bali – Welcome to Ubud

It has been just over two months since my return from Bali, and am still surprised and proud of myself for going solo. I am going to finish the Bali series soon, so that I can focus on other things as well. In just under a week, I’ll be flying out again to do some volunteering (read about it here.) Truth is, even though time moves fast, I still think a lot about my time in Bali a lot – even if some of the memories tries to fade.

Day 2 in Bali – Red and white monkeys dancing

Looking back, the freedom to travel and do what I wanted was great. Just as I stated in my previous post, I wasn’t restrained to another person’s opinion.

Like the previous day, I arranged my day at the start of the day. After a day of exploring little ol’ Seminyak, I thought it was about time to explore another town on the island of Bali. After spending some time researching, I decided it was time to head further south of island, farther than Kuta.

Day 1 in Bali – Seminyak

It’s nearly been a week since I returned from Bali, and boy do I miss it. I miss the people, the friends I made, and most importantly, the food. Following this post, I’ll add a few more to a the series of A Day in Bali, where I’ll point out my daily itinerary, and end the series with a guide to Bali for future visitors.
