Starting a YouTube Channel

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”

Diving with Manta Rays in Lembongan

Even after all these years in Asia, I have never gone diving before (I know, it’s weird). People have been telling me “how amazing it is”, but I just never saw the potential in it. However, when a bunch of my friends wanted to head over to Nusa Lembongan to dive for Manta Rays, I figured it was my time to try this out. Had the most EPIC dive with a big school of manta rays outside Nusa Penida today! Those of u who dive…Continue Reading “Diving With Manta Rays in Nusa Lembongan”

Damn, Halloween has to be one of my favourite nights of the year. There’s something about partying in a costume, disguised as someone else, that makes everyone go extra bonkers. This year, for our Halloween in Bali, Jen and I decided to dress up like Indonesian elementary school students, and for the first time ever, we started the preparations early. For some reason, they don’t make the elementary school uniforms in sizes suitable for people like me, so we had them made. Short and shirt for…Continue Reading “Halloween got out of Hand”

Riding dirt bikes in Bali

I’m just going to jump right into it and say that riding dirt bikes through the amazing landscape of Bali is one of the coolest things I’ve ever experienced. Such a massive bucket-list tick-off! A friend of mine had gone on a dirt bike tour a few months earlier, and couldn’t stop talking about it, so I knew I had to check it out. I brought my friends Alyona and Logan, and we called up our friend Ari at Bali Dirt Bikes to see what it was…Continue Reading “Badass Dirt Bikes Off The Beaten Track in Bali”

Weekend at Le Pirate, Nusa Ceningan

One of the best things about being based in Bali (except for the weather, the beaches, the parties, the people, the food, and a few other things) is the ability to go on weekend getaways to amazing locations! We got an invitation to head over to Le Pirate Beach Club in Nusa Ceningan, and were quick to jump on the opportunity. Nusa Ceningan is linked to Nusa Lembongan, which is just a 30 minute boat ride from Sanur in Bali. As soon as we got to Lembongan, we…Continue Reading “Weekend Getaway to Nusa Ceningan and Le Pirate”

Japanese Photo Booth

Oh damn! There is no place like Japan. Simply put. Game over. Jen and I were so stoked to travel to Toyko, we didn’t talk about anything else all summer. We’re both obsessed with Japan, and we couldn’t wait for our two weeks of exploring the land of the rising sun! In Tokyo, we decided to stay in Kōenji, a small area of Tokyo in Suginami ward, just a bit west of Shinjuku. First of all, accommodation in Japan is EXPENSIVE, so unless you’re filthy rich, prepare…Continue Reading “Japan Madness – Tokyo, Osaka, Kyoto, Nara & Hiroshima”
