Bali, Indonesia.

I’ve fallen in love.

Yes, it’s true. But it is not a person that has won my heart, but rather the Indonesian Island called Bali.

I’d always heard mixed reviews about Bali, with people likening it to vegemite; you either love it or you hate it. Maybe it’s because Indonesia has such a sentimental place in my heart after learning and loving the language for six years during High School, but I have only fond feelings for the place and am counting down the days until I can return. I actually won’t have to wait long to visit again, as my partner Jesse and I booked plane tickets two days after arriving home to visit Bali again in November. This will coincide with our 7-year anniversary, which makes the trip all the more special.

This was my first time overseas, and this trip has certainly enlightened the ‘travel bug’ in me. I travelled with a group of long time friends and we stayed for a week, splitting our time between Gili Trawangan and Seminyak. From the people to the culture, to the street markets and the architecture, this island is full of life and colour.

Here are a few of my favourite photographs from the trip:
