After Mary and Pete continued on with the rest of their travels to New Zealand, I ventured back to Ubud on the island of Bali for Indonesian Spirit Festival. The festival was held at The Yoga Barn in Ubud, and is by far one of the most incredible spaces I’ve been and continue to go to. Indonesian Spirit was a weekend of dance, movement, meditation, exploratory yoga, workshops, and live music. Finding this Yoga/Ecstatic Dance community in Bali feels like I’ve found a piece of home in a tropical paradise.  Not only that, but I’ve met a few friends out here who also happen to be from the Bay Area…small world.

I plan on staying in Ubud until my flight to Malaysia on the 22nd, right before my Visa expires and was lucky enough to find a $17 flight to Kuala Lumpur on AirAsia. Until then, I plan to continue my daily Yoga practice…something I’ve wanted to do, but have never been able to make time for until now. I’m going on two-weeks strong of daily practice and have created a very intimate relationship with my sweat. I feel very blessed to have this opportunity. The temptation to come back to Ubud after New Years is strong and could easily find myself living here as many people do, for a few months.

House in Bali, Indonesia

Was invited to this incredible house for a pool party. It rents for a mere $30/night

The pool was incredibly welcoming in the humidity of Bali and was most definitely taken advantage of.


rain in ubud - Bali, Indonesia

This is Indonesia’s rainy season, and there’s almost always a few hours of rain every afternoon. The rain is quite welcomed as it usually cools off the temperature and gives a great excuse to sit at a cafe and read.


With Love and until next time,

    Thanks for writing about your earthly travels! It inspires me to get back to exploring the world.

    • Awesome to hear that….traveling is addicting once you’ve had a taste of it for sure. If you make it out to SE Asia definitely let me know. Thanks for taking the time to read about my travels :)
