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:

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?
