Travel // Bali Creative Blogger Retreat


Travel is certainly on the cards for me at the moment and before I head off to Boston for a trip home and to soak up some of the US blogging scene, I just had to share some pics from our most recent adventure (tough life I know). I promise this is only a small portion of the photos that were taken on our recent trip to Villa Sungai in Bali as part of a creative bloggers retreat organised by Eat Read Love. These gorgeous images by Luisa Brimble capture a sneak peek the beauty that surrounded us for four incredible days spent poolside, picnicking in the rice fields, sipping far too many lychee martinis (recipe coming soon) and altogether having the time of our lives.

#blogtribe // Blogging On Bali Time


The jet lag is still fresh but I couldn't help but pop in this morning and take a moment to share and reflect on what has been an incredible, gratitude-filled four days with a handful of women close to my heart. It's fitting this post falls on #blogtribe Tuesday because I spent a lot of time thinking about friendship, blogging and powerful notion of tribes while I was gone and I'm now even more convinced about the transformational power that comes when surrounding yourself with passionate, like-minded souls who are there to support, uplift and encourage you when you need it most - the added bonus is when these beautiful souls also happen to make you laugh until you cry.

As a blogger, travel is a powerful tool - something I've been so incredible lucky to experience this year and I'm buzzing with the inspiration and creativity that comes when you place yourself out of your comfort zone and immerse yourself in a new culture.  I'm taking back with me the concept of slow blogging and the intention to be still - to blog from the heart and ensure this space continues to be filled with words, advice, events and stories that inspire and enrich.  Please also consider yourself warned, this isn't the last time you'll hear about Bali and it's certainly not the last time you'll see photos - I'm pretty sure there were about 4 million taken while we were there but I leave you today with a few snaps from Instagram that capture the beauty of these past few days...
