BALI (ULUWATU) PART 3

Wait!!! Please read part 1 & part 2 before continuing or else you will have seven years of bad luck. I’m kidding.. but seriously, do read those posts before this one. Go. Now. This is my last post for my Bali trip (wah!) but hopefully my little series has set a spark within to get out there and travel or informed you of YOUR next vacation to Bali. Now, where did we leave off.. oh yes. So after our stay in Ubud we left to the surf city of Uluwatu! We stayed at Uluwatu Surf Apartments through Airbnb (Save $$$ on your first stay using Airbnb anywhere in the world by clicking HERE). It had a wonderful pool, puppies, and it was only a short walk to Suluban Beach. The below photo is part of Suluban Beach. I spent a couple lovely afternoons lounging under a cave made of natural limestone, listened to the sounds of the crashing waves, and stared nonchalantly at all the hot surfers. Like, WOAH! Could’ve grated cheese on their abs, just saying. The best way …

BALI (UBUD) PART 2

Annnnnnnnd I’m back with the sequel. If you haven’t read BALI (KUTA & UBUD) PART 1, go catch yourself up! We’re going to start this post with my trip to The Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary. I’m not going to lie, I felt absolutely terrified to see all these monkey’s jumping around. There were so many of them, EVERYWHERE! They didn’t approach you if you had no bananas (how typical right?), I advise you leave all food at home or in the car that day. Below is a photo of genuine happiness, I really think this is the happiest I’ll ever be because I’ve never been this close to a monkey. I wish the monkey felt the same, but it seems like he doesn’t give a hoot. One of the best parts of being in Indonesia was ALLLLL THE HEALTHY, WHOLESOME FOOD! Living in Korea I’m used to fried foods covered with thick sauces and spicy kimchi flavoured items so the fact that I can order smoothies, quinoa salad, sweet potato fries, and a black rice burrito made my stomach happy. …

BALI (KUTA & UBUD) PART 1

CAN YOU BELIEVE I WENT TO BALI?! WHAT IS LIFE?! Never in a million years would I have ever thought I would step foot in the soil of Indonesia. In my mind Bali was an exotic place that will forever be far beyond my reach. It’s way too beautiful of a place for someone like me to go. It’s like being in an elevator and suddenly the hottest man to ever walk the earth enters and stands casually beside you and he’s so far beyond good looking that you can’t even look at him in the eyes and there’s no WAY you’d ever speak to him without stuttering from nerves. IT’S LIKE BEING STUCK IN AN ATM VESTIBULE WITH JILL GOODACRE! If anyone understands this reference, we are friends forever. Where am I going with this.. oh yes! Bali has always been a place I never thought I would go but a few months ago in a random act of picking a new adventure, Bali was chosen. On August 10, 2016 my friend Leni and I packed our carry-ons …
