Started the day with a GORGEOUS bike ride down to the beach. Definitely my favorite way to see Bali so far!
At the beach we arrived at the perfect moment to see a Balinese ceremony happening. Such beautiful people with lovely traditions. Their whole lives are centered around family, Temple, & devotion.
After attending Church, we went on an hour boat ride to a small, beautiful island off Bali called Lembongan where we’re staying the night tonight.
Lunch on the beach at Mai Tide was INCREDIBLE. Veggie pizza (with pumpkin on it – YUM) & grilled chicken on a stack of couscous. The food in Bali is completely out of this world. It’s so healthy & DELICIOUS. And the presentation is always gorgeous!
By far the biggest highlight of today was a full body, AMAZING massage on the beach (for only $8 USD). Holy smokes. This is exactly what I imagine heaven to be like. Kelly is giving me the PRIMO experience. Blowing my mind with all the beauty & how this Bali experience is deeply nourishing my soul.
We’re staying the night on this island at a small, adorable resort called “Dream Huts” that is “small on frills, but big on fun.” Our room is an actual little hut with an outdoor enclosed bathroom. The shower is a spout made from bamboo & the water is only one temperature: on. The pool at the resort is just breath-taking & overlooks the bay & their private beach. We swam while watching the sunset. Completely yummy.
Tonight we had a delicious dinner by candlelight & paper lanterns on the beach at the Sandy Bay Beach Club. The fish is amazing here since it just barely hopped out of the ocean & onto my plate. We couldn’t decide on deserts, so of course we ordered 3. YUM.
SUCH a magical first day in Bali!! Is this really happening to me?!! Can’t even wait to wake up tomorrow!!!
