An Adventurer's Paradise in Bali: Surf Camp (Part Two)

•••
Hey! I’m still alive... still trying not to look behind me, and still staying at a surf camp, nestled on a cliffside in Bali. I will say, regardless of whether or not you enjoy surfing, I 10/10 recommend staying at a surf camp. Did you know you can stay at a surf camp, and never even touch a surfboard? Instead, you can take advantage of the cool vibes, heal[...]

The Bali Surf Camp Experience: Part One (told by a very bad surfer)

•••
"Want to go to a surf camp?" This question has been posed to me before. And the polite, American in me always says “yeah, it’s a possibility”, when on the inside I’m more like, “you know, I think I’d rather hike a nice mountain, work with rescued elephants, or throw myself into moving traffic before I sign up for what is, to me, a pretty scary sport, FOR SE[...]

East meets east - Getting zen in Bali

•••
This July I had great plans to finally add two new countries to my personal map: I was going take my first trip to Tokyo followed by seeing my family in the Philippines. Alas, as it happens sometimes happens in life - you can plan all you want, things can still go wrong or in my case not work out at all. My travel plans fell through within a week to spare an[...]

Rainforest Adventures in Sarawak, Borneo




•••
The world is tranquil at the top of the Kalimantan lookout. Swirling mist envelops us in an eerie silence, occasionally breaking up to reveal swathes of lush jungle below.  Electric blue dragonflies hover on fragrant orchids. Wild deer bark their calls in the dark rainforest around us.

 We have struggled over an hour along a muddy, slippery, leech-infested [...]

Mermaid Aboard - Diving in Raja Ampat

•••
Scuba diving has been my passion for the past three years. It started innocently enough with seeing little Nemo for real and at first, I had no idea that it would start a love affair that would influence all my future travels. These days chances are if there is no diving at a destination I am not that interested in going and more than ever do I think Ariel w[...]

The Travelettes Guide to Seminyak, Bali

•••
Some people love it, some people hate it (and that is quite alright!) but for us, Bali still has a special place in our hearts. Whether you are traveling with kids, plan an Eat Pray Love kinda holiday or want to explore the underwater world - Bali has something for everyone. I will admit that I have a soft spot for Bali, so much so that I stayed there 2 y[...]

Top 10 things to do with kids in Bali

•••
As every year I knew well into 2017 that I was not going to spend the following winter in Germany. In fact, I haven't spent an entire winter in Europe for the past 13 years, why break with this tradition? Knowing I would be traveling with my 3-year old I opted for a place I had only been once many years ago but kept hearing wonderful things about: Bali. A[...]

Top 10 awesome experiences in Bali

•••
Our Bali month is over, but my Bali stay is only half way through. These 4 weeks however have been a great start, and an opportunity to get some valuable insight into how this island ticks - and I've done my best to see as much as possible and to get a real feel for this beautiful piece of land. Back in 2016, Annika wrote a pretty great guide for the top 10 [...]

10 True Hidden Gems in Bali

•••
Bali is easy to love and once you set foot on the Island of Gods you will understand why so many travelers flock here. Whether weekend visitors from Australia, digital nomads or honeymooners - Bali is one of Asia's number one tourist destinations. While the island needs tourism, the boom in recent years has had its side-effects and many mourn the loss of Ba[...]

What I wish I’d known before volunteering as a teacher in Bali

•••
Chaos. That’s the one word that instantly sprung to mind as I looked out over my 40 Balinese kindergarten students in horror. One little boy was dancing on the table, another throwing puzzle pieces on the floor, and several were brawling in the middle of the tiny overcrowded classroom. One thing was for certain: the angelic, perfectly behaved little children[...]
