When Bloggers Invade Bali // Travel


When bloggers invade Bali something magical happens or as evidenced by these photos, once in a lifetime memories take place. Earlier last year I was lucky enough to travel to Bali with a few blogging pals and stay for a few blissful days at Villa Sungai which I've come to realise as heaven on earth.

I've been waiting to share these photos with you for ages and have a few more up my sleeve to share later in the hope they can help cure the back to work blues (don't hate me but when you travel with photographers in tow the photos are too pretty not to post). One of the most incredible, jaw-dropping moments of the trip (and yes there were many) came in the form of a rice paddy picnic in Cepaka that saw us enjoying chilled wine, gourmet food all while taking in some of the most stunning scenery and light that I've ever seen. It was so perfect it almost seems ridiculous trying to convey the memory here but it certainly is etched into my brain as one of the most luxurious, and beautiful moments of my life.  I'll let the photos speak for themselves...

I'm counting my blessings as I type this post poolside in Bali and sending you all the best for a blissful weekend ahead. This travel luck has only found its way to me thanks to a partner who happens to work in the travel industry but I've decided to dive head first into the reaping the benefits as I believe fully that travel can transform, change and alter your way of thinking, living and viewing others. I am the the first one to recognise my utter luck and gratitude with the number of times I've been able to visit this magical country this year and the magnitude of that gift is not lost on me.

All the late nights and blurry eyes from sitting behind the computer seem worth it as I sit here in silence, surrounded by peaceful, healing and magnetic energy. If only I could scoop you all up and bring you here with me - a Bali Blog Society has a nice ring to it doesn't it?

I've been writing course content for my Digital Bravery e-course each morning - just a little bit of work before happily closing the laptop. I wanted to send you some link love from Bali to encourage you escape - even if just for a few moment - this weekend, I know you've certainly earned it.

Link Love // The Friday Files


Yes, I'm a day late with this week's Friday Files post but I promise I had every intention of posting yesterday (really, I did!)  I'm actually blogging as we speak from Bali (tough life I know) and I was being such a good blogger when the call of the beach and sunset cocktails became too strong to ignore. I'm trying to live in the moment this holiday, while also balancing Blog Society biz so forced myself to step away from the screen and go out and enjoy this beautiful place around me.  I hope you are also enjoying this Easter break surrounded by those you love best.  More from Bali this week but in the meantime here's what caught my eye around the blog world:

  • Here's how to use Pinterest to help grow your blog
  • Struggling to create original content? A great example of how it's done well.
  • Going to test out a few new recipes like this when we're back home
  • Need some reading inspiration? I can't put this one down
  • For me travel is everything, this is next on my wish list
