Living the Island Life: Bali, Indonesia 

One month ago I left with a backpack to explore South East Asia. I have been living on the island of Bali for the past 10 days.

Bali is an island home to over 4 million people and is a popular destination for travellers travelling to Indonesia. It doesn’t matter where you go, the Balinese people are among the most friendly I have ever met.

Fun fact: Of the 193 countries in the world Indonesia is the 4th most populous.
Because Bali is so close to the equator the sun is HOT and the sunsets are great.

This is what’s going on.. 

  1. MOTORBIKE 
For $5.00/day these are my wheels. Public transportation is non-existent in Bali, so you are either on a motorbike or hiring a taxi. Too spread out and too hot in the day to walk. A heads up: The traffic is crazy and accidents are common. 

 2. MEAL PREP 
 This is Loman. She is a very sweet Indonesia lady who cooks for me everyday,  breakfast and dinner. Her meals are amazing and she’s so positive. I love it. 

3. FOOD

 
This Indonesian meal above was $4.00. Spring rolls, chicken sate, rice, and a mango smoothie. 


4. LAUNDRY  
 
You don’t need a lot of clothes in Bali but once in a while is nice to have clean clothes. When you need clean clothes, go see Jenny.  Jenny does a great job and like the sign says: She takes No BS. The price is set at $4.00. No discounts.

5. BEACH  Bali has some of the best surf spots in the world. Although I’m definitely a beginner it’s a good challenge to learn a new sport. 

6. SUNSETS   
  

   The sun sets at 6:00 PM and makes for some amazing scenery. Both these images are unfiltered. 

7. GUEST HOUSE 

 
The guest house I’m staying at has a sweet pool 

8. PEOPLE

You learn so much in a foreign country and the greatest cultural experience is meeting the local people. I like to go out in the country on the scooter to see and meet people. Here are some of the beautiful people of Indonesia..
 
 
 

It’s the people that count.

As my friend Bob Goff says: “Love is never stationary. In the end, love just doesn’t keep thinking about it or planning on it. Simply put: love does”
