I was avoiding visiting Bali for decades, because chasing the crowds is just not my cup of tea. However, the island is known for its beautiful nature and is conveniently located near Java, which had been on my bucket list for a while. So, in September 2022 we combined a trip to Bali with the highlights of Java and thanks to the post-pandemic period we got quite lucky. In this post I will share top 10 things to do in Bali with tips and alternatives that will help you save money*. I’ll also write a few travel hacks to help you avoid crowds in popular places.
This photo is far from my “Instagram standards“, but it will stay in my memory for much longer than many “staged” ones with thousands of likes. It was taken spontaneously, with a phone, just before my last snorkeling in Maldives. And almost as if the photo knew what was coming next, it reflects exactly what I want to tell you in this short post.
Ta fotografija je daleč od mojih “Instagram standardov”, a v spominu mi bo ostala mnogo dlje, kot marsikatera “zrežirana” z več tisoč všečki. Nastala je spontano, s telefonom, tik preden sem šla na svoje zadnje snorkljanje na Maldivih. In kot da bi vedela, kaj bo sledilo, fotografija odraža točno to, kar vam želim povedati v tem kratkem zapisu.
