Bali is a small island in Indonesia and home to many religious sites like Uluwatu and incredible beaches in Seminyak. I have the privilege of sharing some of my Bali highlights after spending 10 days at the beginning of June. Yes its weird sharing this incredible experience a month plus late but regular readers know of my busy schedule. June would go down as the month I traveled every single weekend to somewhere new and abroad in 2017.
Because it’s been so long I fear I might not do my Bali highlights much justice as some things I can not remember. I can certainly relate to you how I felt on the trip, it being my pre-30th gift to myself. Having turned 30 now I am glad I decided to go and experience this romantic island for myself. I learnt after a long time that waiting on people to help you accomplish a dream is a waste of time. Go do it yourself, or at least go and attempt alone before deciding you need someone’s help.
Indonesia: Bali Highlights
Bali was on my bucketlist of places to visit before 30 and for 2017 places to visit. It was a dream come true when I finally flew from London to Bali via Doha. The flight was long and exhausting but the layover made all the difference and we managed to explore Doha. After spending hours in Doha (which I highly recommend) we continued with our connecting flight to Bali Denpasar.
Upon arrival the exist was not the fastest due to the amount of people arriving but it wasn’t longer than half an hour. Luckily for us our hotel was a mere 5 – 10 minute drive from the airport and didn’t wait too long for a taxis. What I would recommend is to always change money at the airport or big money exchange bureau. Whilst majority of Balinese are not untrustworthy some will try to cheat you out of the exchange rate and give you lower.
Where we stayed:
Our hotel was located in Kuta, which is about 15
