Preamble to Balian Beach Post(s)

Hey, sorry for the radio silence!

The weeks since we have been home from Bali have been an adjustment to say the least. I have loads more amazing things to tell you about our adventure, but it’s going to be kind of hard.

After having the most wonderful time we arrived home and Bryan decided we were to leave ‘us’ somewhere between Bali, Dubai and London, so forgive me if the posts seem a bit… gappy.

I’m going to make a start 🙂


Waking up in our home at Balian Beach was a dream. With light streaming in through the windows, the sound of the waves and the gentle humming of bugs outside… it was hard to believe there could be anywhere more perfect.

We had arranged for breakfast at 8:30am but were up way before this (as usual) so had a look around the grounds of the property for the first time in daylight.

I don’t want to be repetitive but I’m running out of ways to express how beautiful Bali is. Everything we saw there blew me away. We opened up the big sliding wooden doors and were greeted with a view of paradise. Our place was nestled in a lush tropical garden, home to such a variety of wildlife that hit us right away. Vibrant flowers, bright green grass and trees… not to mention the rice terrace AND ocean view all rolled into 1.

The highlight of the property for me was the natural pool. I was nervous to give it a go as it was pond water (literally, the only thing separating the pool from the pond was lower than water level wall); there was algae on the walls and tadpoles swimming freely which could sound off-putting but you know what? I’ve never felt water so soft. It was an absolute dream to swim in. We would often swim up the the ‘wall’ and have a close up look at all the nature buzzing around. There were dragonflies EVERYWHERE and a fair few butterflies too. I have never seen so many beautiful colours.

There are so many little tales and funny stories I have to tell you, I’m going to have a look through my photos and do a proper account of our day to day, but for now I want everyone to know how utterly perfect my two weeks in Bali were. I would not change a thing.


Note: I’ve got a pretty amazing solo adventure (potentially life change?!) in the pipeline so rest assured you will have oodles of travel content coming up. Until then I’ll do my best to fill you in on the last bits of Bali and any exciting things that may have happened between then, now and my next big escape.

Lots of love,
