After talking about whether to book our flights or not my boyfriend Tim and I locked in a holiday to Bali for the first two weeks of June. This trip was very much needed after a busy few months. I’d heard bits and pieces about Bali’s food, people and culture from close friends so I was excited to experience it for myself. Before we left I felt a number of things: excitement, anticipation, anxiety and the good ol’ ‘unknown’. Despite getting the notorious ‘Bali belly’ and a heat rash all over my face and neck – this trip was everything I could have hoped for and more. It was the first overseas holiday with Tim which was genuinely the best. The two places we stayed in were Canggu and Ubud, with day visits to Tanah Lot Temple, Seminyak and Nusa Dua. We had so much fun together trying local Indonesian food, talking to different people and taking a bunch of photos. We laughed a lot, explored even more (on the back of a scooter of course), and fell in love with a different way of life. Bali is a place we will definitely visit again.
