BEST FRIENDS AND ROOMMATES, CATHIE AND ASHLEY BREAK AWAY FROM THE COLD AND GUIDE US THROUGH THEIR TROPICAL ADVENTURE THROUGH INDONESIAN BEACHES FOR THEIR ENDLESS SUMMER GETAWAY WITH SURF, SUNSETS AND DELICIOUS SPREADS.
Bali has been on my list since I was about 10 years old. My cousin used to go every year and I was always so jealous seeing photos, but I promised myself one day it'll all work out. Cathie and I made an excuse since both of our birthdays are about a week apart we just had to go above and beyond for this trip! Couldn't have asked for a better birthday! I can't wait to go back
Tips on finding the best place to stay...
Airbnb! and just random google searches for adorable places to stay in Bali.
What were some of the highlights from your trip?
Oh man there were so many highlights surfing for the first time, watching the most incredible sunsets and lounging by the beach in colorful bean bag chairs
We ate so much during our trip so I can't name just one thing! First of all Kynd Community has the best acai bowls and they write cute little messages on them! My next favorite was this new Peruvian restaurant called AYA street. If you want some yummy seafood that’s the spot to go to.
We went to so many amazing ones. Canggu! Seminyak and this little hidden gem near Uluwatu temple.
Catch any waves?
Ashley: "YES! We took surfing lessons and I had the best instructor! I caught about 4 waves. It was so much fun and exhausting but so glad we got to do it for our first time in Bali!"
Cathie: "ATTEMPTED to haha. Wiped out every time."
Try anything new?
We stayed at a resort that got us anything we wanted.... they definitely spoiled us. We really wanted to eat breakfast off of a floating tray and they made it happen. We woke up swam in our private pool and ate (LIKE IS THIS REAL LIFE??) We also had some balinese snacks.
Interact with locals?
Everyone was so friendly and accommodating! At least the humans...
BUG SPRAY. Sunscreen, adapters, lots of bikinis and Reef. All we did was walk! Cushion bounce sunny for beach adventuring, Rose LX for casual city exploring and shopping, and the voyage boots for all day trekking.
