Bali 2018 Photo Diary


It's been some time since I've written anything personal here and updated you on my latest wanderings. I've been super busy for the last 6 weeks, travelling New Zealand's South Island with Stray and I've just returned from a relaxing holiday in Bali.

There are a bunch of new blog posts coming your way very soon from what I've been up to, but for now, I wanted to share some of my favourite photos from my most recent trip.

Pin it! :)

As most of you probably know, I absolutely love Bali and ever since my first trip in 2015, I've consistently gone back every year (this latest trip was my fourth time).

Every time I go back it has grown more and more in tourism, but what I love most about Bali is that the people and their beautiful culture remain the same.

As mentioned, this trip was more of a holiday for my partner and I, to spend some time together in our favourite place, as he is going away for six months very soon for work. 

As we've been so many times we have already done many of the main temples and waterfalls etc. some more than once, in case you may be wondering why we didn't do them this time.

We enjoyed some well-deserved relaxing and soaked up the warm sunshine, being mid-winter back at home.

For the first four nights, we stayed in Ubud and then spent one week in Seminyak, where we also did a day trip and hopped over to Nusa Penida, the island next door to explore. 

Here are some photo highlights, first up:

UBUD

Monkey statue, Ubud
Lunch (and a beer) with a rice field view
At the Sacred Monkey Forest



Relaxing at Goya Boutique Resort
Tegalalang rice terrace

Beaut morning spread
Mojito's are always a good idea (love the art)
A beer for him (I made him pose like that)
Can't get enough of rice fields
Or the local food
Balinese :)
Amazing infinity pool at Goya

SEMINYAK

Checking in at The Breezes
Nice to be back at an old favourite
Time for happy hour and pool bingo
Seminyak street
Mojito bar down the road yasss
A fancy Balinese feast at Bambu



Cultural dinner and show at The Breezes
Traditional dancing
Healthy lunch at popular Sisterfields
Delicious vegan ice cream to finish off at Mad Pops
Balcony view :)

NUSA PENIDA

View of Mt Agung in the background (the volcano that keeps erupting)
Swimming with Manta Rays!
They are super friendly and a lot bigger than they look - at least 5 metres wide
Such an incredible experience!
We also did some great snorkelling in Crystal Bay
Huge bucket list tick - Kelingking Beach
One of the most epic views I've ever seen
Beautiful Broken Beach
A huge Manta Ray swimming in there
Amazing day trip!

I hope you enjoyed seeing a snippet of my 2018 Bali trip. Feel free to check out my Bali Guide for tips and top things to see and do (although I really do need to update it!).

Next time - because we all know there'll be a next time - I'm really keen to check out North Bali and more of the East.

Have you been to Bali or wanting to go? What are some of your favourite things to do there if you have?

Happy Travels,

I really want to go to that cool island too. I like staying in Ubud, not a fan of Kuta at all. Love the rice terraces and waterfalls there and like you said, the people are so friendly and wonderful.

It is one of the best place for Amateur photographer. They can click any portrait. It will be their train to become a professional photographer. It is a marvelous place to visit.

When we’re planning a trip to Bali we first decide on a window of time we’d like to be there, it could be two weeks or even a whole month. villaconciergebali.com
