What an amazing birthday weekend! Big thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate with me, and an extra huge thank you to Hu’u Villas who hosted my birthday party 🙂 Getting older is not so bad after all!
If you’ve been following me for a while, you know I love to go exploring in the weekends. This weekend, we headed down to the Bukit, the South part of Bali. We had heard rumours of another secret beach, and we had to go try to find it. And we did! It was a cool little beach, hidden in a cove. The tide was too high when we were there, so it wasn’t really good a place to hangout, but we’ll definitely come back some…Continue Reading “More Secret Beaches and a Stay at Le Meridien, Jimbaran”
Unfortunately, Bali is getting more and more crowded, as the influx of tourists keep increasing every year. The beaches in Kuta, Seminyak and Canggu are way overcrowded (not to mention dirty), so we usually don’t hangout there too much. The beaches in the south part of Bali, however, are still pretty amazing. Most of them are also getting pretty crowded, but if you go off the beaten track, there are still hidden gems to be found. This weekend, we headed down to Nusa Dua to stay…Continue Reading “Secret Beach in Nusa Dua, Bali”
As I’ve mentioned before, we love to explore this island, and to take time off for some “mini-vacations“. This time, we decided to explore the North side of Ubud, and headed up to Wapa di Ume villas. Wapa di Ume is a beautiful resort situated about 5 minutes drive to the North of Ubud centre. From there, we drove around on our scooters, exploring the area. Even after all these years in Bali, it’s crazy how unfamiliar I am with Ubud. Ubud town has become…Continue Reading “Jungle Getaway at Wapa di Ume Villas in Ubud, Bali”
As you all know, I love to travel and visit beautiful places. However, if there’s one thing that really can kill the experience for me, it’s when a place is overflown with tourists. Unfortunately, this is usually the case in Bali. But don’t be alarmed – we’ve found a solution to the problem: very early mornings. We wanted to visit the Tegalalang Rice Terraces (again), so we decided to get up at 4:50am to try to make it there in time for sunrise, and before all…Continue Reading “How to Visit Tegalalang Rice Terrace Without All The Tourists”
First of all, Happy New Year! I had a lot of New Year’s resolutions this year, as always, but already there seems to be just one I’ll stick to. And that is to start a YouTube channel. Not just that, but I challenge myself to put out 15 videos in 30 days. The reason I’m doing this is that I feel the continuous forced creativity will be amazing training. Second, it will also force me to go out an do cool stuff (let’s face it, no one…Continue Reading “Stepping Out of my Comfort Zone – Starting a YouTube Channel”
For Jen’s birthday, I gave her a 3-day-2-night cruise with the Le Pirate Explorer in Flores. We were both super stoked about it, and headed to Labuan Bajo in Flores on Saturday. When we arrived in Flores, we stayed at Le Pirate’s hotel in Labuan Bajo harbour for the first night. The morning after, we headed out the Explorer 1 boat, where we were to spend the next 3 days. The boat is super nice, with 4 sleeping cabins upstairs, and a beautiful deck below equipped with…Continue Reading “Video: Defying the Storms with Le Pirate Explorer in Flores”
