Tranquility of Bali seems like a distant memory, even though it’s only been two weeks ago ✈️ Back to London now and it’s all about work this month. Being an accountant, January is the busiest season due to the personal tax deadline 🀯 Hope you guys manage to keep a healthy work / life balance πŸ§˜β€β™€οΈ Love and light to you all πŸ’– #bali #indonesia #dreamlandbeach #uluwatu #visitindonesia #russiangirlπŸ‡·πŸ‡Ί #followyourdreams #wanderlust #tranquility #ocean #lifeisabeach #hippie #bohostyle #weareone #onelove #positivevibes #travelblogger #tbt at Dreamland Beach

It’s been a long flight from Bali to London. I’m not into movies and normally use this time to read books, edit pictures and reflect on life. But this time one movie caught my attention and I’d highly recommend it to anyone. It was a documentary called Jane πŸ’ Drawing from over 100 hours of never-before-seen footage from the National Geographic archives, it tells the story of Jane Goodall, a young woman who moved to Tanzania driven by her passion for animals and became one of the world's most influential conservationists. Her chimpanzee research was essential to understanding not only the way we interact with the natural world but our place in it ❀️🌍 What do you guys normally do on the long haul flights? ✈️ #weareone #onelove #uluwatu #uluwatutemple #bali #indonesia #travelblog #followyourdreams #lovelife #positivevibes #wanderlust #monkey #loveanimals #love #inspire at Uluwatu, Bali, Indonesia

My last day in Indonesia had been crazy as I was travelling from Gili to Bali and had an ambitious plan of getting to Tanah Lot Temple, located pretty far up from Kuta. Upon arrival to the Gili dock I’ve been told that the boat is completely full, but looking at my β€œsad puppy” eyes and making few phone calls they did find one ticket πŸ™Œ The journey was pretty rough and 5 hours later I got to the hostel, dropped a bag, jumped on the Grab Bike (Asian version of Uber where you have a motorbike option) and took off to the temple. The traffic had been horrendous but I was blessed to arrive an hour before closing, explore this magnificent temple and even witness the sunset, the first and the last one on my Indonesian trip 🧑 #tanahlot #tanahlottemple #bali #indonesia #sunset #visitindonesia #travelgram #wanderlust #travelblog #followyourdreams #bucketlist #bucketlistβœ… #baliindonesia at Tanah Lot, Bali

Barong, the king of the spirits πŸ‘‘ I got back from Gili to Bali on Friday and was really surprised to see these mystical creatures still dancing all over the streets! πŸ˜… For those who haven’t seen my earlier post, Galungan festival (a celebration of the victory of good over evil) started in Bali almost 10 days ago. It marks the time when the spirits of ancestors visit the Earth. Locals explained me that the last 10th day of this celebration is called Kuningan and that’s when these spirits leave the Earth. On this day offerings are given to the spirits which include yellow rice, the symbol of gratitude πŸ™πŸ’› Scroll for the πŸŽ₯ #bali #indonesia #galungankuningan #galungan #festival #barong #visitindonesia #bucketlist #bucketlistβœ… #wanderlust #travelgram #weareone #onelove #positivevibes #lovelife #incredible #followyourdreams #travelblog at Bali, Indonesia

My time in Gili Air is coming to an end. It’s been raining most of the time, perfect for diving and eating as both food and scuba are top quality here 😊 Had such a great time swimming alongside giant turtles, unicorn fish and giant pufferfish and even visited underwater sculptures; met lots of new friends too! Barely took any pictures as it’s too wet and I didn’t pack my gopro 🐑 #giliair #giliairisland #indonesia #visitindonesia #travelgram #wanderlust #lovelife #followyourdreams #lombok #travelblog #russiangirl #healthyfood #vegan #lifeisabeach #gili at Gili Air, Lombok, Indonesia

Uluwatu Temple, Bali πŸ•‰ The Balinese Hindus believe that the three divine powers of Brahma, Vishnu, and Siva become one here. That belief results in making Uluwatu Temple a place of worship of Siva Rudra, the Balinese Hindu deity of all elements and aspects of life in the Universe. Uluwatu Temple is also dedicated to protect Bali from evil sea spirits πŸ™Œ #uluwatu #uluwatutemple #bali #baliindonesia #travelgram #wanderlust #purauluwatu #landscapephotography #visitindonesia #landscape at Uluwatu Temple, Uluwatu, Bali

State of art breakfast: a smoothie bowl with berries, fruits, seeds and nuts 🀀 Bali is one of those places, where it’s ridiculously easy to eat healthy and be vegan without breaking the bank (this costs about Β£2.50= $3)πŸ’šπŸŒ Beautiful day to all of you πŸ€— #goodmorning #breakfast #bali #yourbodyisatemple #uluwatu #healthyfood #smoothiebowl #vegan #veganfood #positivevibes #weareone #onelove #travelgram #wanderlust #bukit #russian #indonesia #visitindonesia at Smoothie Shop juice & breakfast bar

Dreamland Beach, Bali 🐾 The combination of black and white sand, limestone cliffs and pretty high waves makes it look quite dramatic πŸ–€ It’s been really cloudy today and I still managed to get a sunburn within an hour πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ #dreamlandbeach #bali #bukit #beach #positivevibes #travelgram #wanderlust #lifeisabeach #positivevibes #lovelife #surf #indonesia #uluwatu at Uluwatu, Bali, Indonesia

This coffee shop has by far the most incredible views πŸ™Œ That’s the place to taste kopi luwak, which is one of the most expensive coffees in the world with a retail price going up to Β£500/ $700 per kilo. It’s basically coffee that’s been eaten and pooped out by a small animal called the Asian Palm Civet πŸ’© I did try it so that to get the full experience of this beautiful country, it tastes normal but Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee is still my favourite πŸ˜… #ubud #bali #indonesia #visitbali #travelgram #wanderlust #luwakcoffee #coffee #onelove #traveltheworld #positivevibes #cafe at Ubud, Bali, Indonesia

Tirta Gangga is a Royal Water Palace belonging to the royal family of Karangasem Kingdom πŸ’œ Tirta means that the water is blessed and purifies any bad energy around the area. It is named after the river Gangga in India, which is regarded as sacred by Hindus in Bali πŸ•‰ P.S.

Today is an important Hindu festival Galungan here in Bali, a celebration of the victory of good over evil. It marks the time when the ancestral spirits visit the Earth. I was so privileged to participate at the temple ceremony with the family of my homestay Omank Agus here in Ubud. They dressed me in a traditional clothing, I’ve been explained the meaning and traditions surrounding Galungan and we attended three different temples for the festival prayers. All the local temples are very colourful today, such a beautiful time to observe the most fascinating part of Bali’s spiritual culture β€οΈπŸ™ P.S.

Just got back from Lempuyang temple, a sacred Hindu place and the highest/ one of the oldest temples in Bali πŸ•‰ The Gate of Heaven overlooks the Agung volcano, which was hidden by the clouds today. The climb can be a spiritual journey as you ascend far above the volcano below all the way up into the sky πŸ™Œ It was such an unforgettable way to spend Christmas and in my subjective opinion way more meaningful and spiritual then eating Brussel sprouts in front of TV or shopping on ASOS sale... 😏 Big thanks to @baliguidesumi for your patience πŸ™ #puralempuyang #gateofheaven #bali #hindu #wanderlust #travelgram #weareone #onelove #positivevibes #ubud #visitbali #bucketlist #merrychristmas at Pura Lempuyang Luhur

Last night I’ve arrived to Ubud, a paradise for hippies, yogis, vegans and those who love the movie Eat Pray Love as it was partly filmed here.

I’ve eventually decided to leave London for this festive season and spend it in the tropical climate ✈️🌴 It’s been lots of pros and cons, but the cost of the trip is not gonna be a deal breaker for the future plans and the weather here has been really convincing lately πŸ₯Άβ˜”️ Not going to Jamaica this time, but big thanks to all my fam and friends from Jamaica, USA and Philippines for inviting ❀️ Where are you guys going/ staying for the holidays? πŸŽ„ #bali #holidays #holidayseason #travelgram #vacay #wanderlust #positivevibes #followyourdreams #jamaica #baliindonesia #bucketlist #onelove #inspired #happy
