My brother invited me to go to Bali with him last February when I had to painfully declined because of my new full time job. Although I was happy to finally land myself a big girl employment, I was also really sad that I wasn’t able to go. When my brother got back from his vacation, it was the only thing he could talk about and I don’t blame him at all!
For half a year, travelling to Bali was all I could think about until one night in September, I decided to finally bite the bullet and buy my round trip flight for the following December. After seeing it with my own eyes and being there first hand, I can fully understand why he felt like he had seen some magical place.
The 30 something hours of journey to get there wasn’t an easy one but I’d do it all over again if I had to.
I had the best coffee and tea of my life while also having the best view.
Not to mention that Bali has the bluest body of ocean I have ever seen!
Before leaving Canada, I had some doubts. I began to second guess myself as to why I was travelling when I could be spending the holiday season with my friends but I’m glad I did it anyways. It was by far the best New Year’s Eve I’ve had in ages. Not to mention I met the coolest brothers from Netherlands who were nice enough to let me sit at their table during the dinner party so I wouldn’t feel left out. Thanks Tim and Mark!
Also $10 for a boat ride to watch the dolphins up close and personal wasn’t so bad. It was the most thrilling experience, aside from when I went scuba diving of course.
I also enjoyed the best avocado shakes of my life so yes, I fell in love with Bali. I fell in love with the people, the culture, the history, and the island life.
With love always,
