Bali Sharks Rescue Center

You may ask why….. Why should we help to save the greatest apex predator in our oceans…….. Why should we donate to a cause that saves and helps the shark populations in our oceans………. As you all know only too well 🙂 this topic is a real passion of mine. It is one topic on which more education and understanding is urgently needed. The unauthorised, unregulated, high level wasteful slaughter of this apex predator has far reaching consequences to all on this...

Food Glorious Food

What is it when you go on holidays you relax and the food always taste so much better. Being a foodie things have to be right. Its a visual journey as much as a taste bud sensation. Food is art. Well it should be. And art is what I have found on my journeys around the Island of the Gods. Bali. It was only by accident (as most wonderful things are) that we happened to stumble across a restaurant called L’Assiette...

My favourite place to eat North Bali

So you made the journey to the North East of Bali. Settled into your amazing villa accommodation and had a day of rest just floating around your private villa pool. As mentioned in my last blog we stayed in one of Angelique van Velsen’s villas (please read previous blog for contact info). In all the villa’s on her books you will find as mentioned the villa is fully staffed and also the is a very comprehensive menu from which you...

Accommodation on the North East side of Bali

A journey far less travelled by tourists to Bali. As I have spoken about before it is a 3 hour car trip through jungles and over mountains. Past great lakes formed from volcano craters. Through an area where sometimes you are standing above the clouds. As soon as you hit the heights and start the drive down the other side before you as far as the eye can see it the North East/West coastline. For our trip over we decided...

Reality

In Australia, somewhere in Queensland, Saturday morning, stormy and raining but my head and heart are in Bali. Every minute, every second of the day is a count down to my return to the Island of the Gods. To the sacred place of my sanity, my peace, my oneness with the world. We have all been programed to operate like tiny insignificant robots. Day in, day out. Never taking the time to just sit and watch the world. Never just...

Bali and where to stay

Booking in your time off, getting flights and insurance. Now that’s the easy part. Accommodation can be a nightmare. Where to stay. What Villa and/or Hotel. Depending on who’s going and if you decide upfront to just get a package deal the options are vast and all personal choices. I have stayed in many different types of accommodation but my preferred option is villa’s. Bali is small but for a small place there are literally thousands of options and it...

Flights and grabbing the elusive bargain to Bali

Flights to Bali are usually good prices all year round but for me I love a bargain. I have numerous places I go in search of the elusive sale tickets. I also watch the airline sights such as Virgin (who are my favourites to fly with anywhere in the world), Garuda and off course Jetstar. If your willing to put the work in there are some great sales that come up all year round and those fantastic big one off...

More to Bali than Kuta

Last Blog I started covering the different area’s that are Bali and I want to continue here as we head to the other side. This is an area of Bali not very often visited and you are missing such beauty by not adventuring out and just going. The people are so laid back and very friendly. In these area’s you will be welcomed in and if you are lucky enough, like we were, you will share in village life and be...

Explaining a comment

In my last blog I made the comment “its not Kuta” and I have had a few questions since posting about 5 mins ago. Thanks for the comments and questions and thank you for following. Peace Light & love to you all 🙂 My thing is (and this is only my personal thoughts) if you would not do it at home why do it in Bali? Don’t walk around with bottles of Bintang drunk. Don’t walk around in your swim...
