Bali is probably one of the most Instagrammable places in the entire world. It’s filled with beautiful beaches, gorgeous islands, and cultural hot spots. You could probably spend an entire month there without seeing everything. So, where are the most picture perfect spots in Bali? They are all over the beautiful island. I definitely didn’t have enough time to explore every area, but I made it to several different locations and found some pretty Instagram-worthy spots. Let me know if…

Thailand is known for having some of the most magical looking temples. You can find traditional buddhist temples, modern temples, gorgeously colored temples, and temples that hang over the side of a cliff. And when you visit one of these magical temples in Thailand, you’ll be surprised at how quickly they take your breath away. I was lucky to explore so many different parts of Thailand while I lived there. I spent a lot of time in the Northern provinces of…

Six Things To Do In Kuala Lumpur

September 12, 2016
Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur ended up being a really cool place for relaxing. I wasn’t expecting that since usually cities mean a lot of running around, trying to fit everything in. But, my friend and I decided that we wanted to take it easy during our time there. While we didn’t actually do a ton in Kuala Lumpur, the things we did do ended up being really cool. We wandered around, ate delicious food, went out for drinks, and took in some…

Why George Town, Penang Is The Coolest Place in Malaysia

September 9, 2016
george town, penang

George Town, Penang was my favorite part of Malaysia. The streets are lined with British colonial houses. The food is to die for. And the street art is some of the coolest I’ve ever seen. A short plane ride or bus ride from KL will take you to Penang, a small Malaysian island. The island is the cultural and historical area of Malaysia and old George Town is UNESCO protected site. Here’s Why I Fell In Love With George Town, Penang:…

Three Reasons You Should Visit The Cameron Highlands

September 7, 2016
cameron highlands

After arriving in Malaysia, we hopped on a bus to the Cameron Highlands. The bus ride takes about four hours from Kuala Lumpur and costs about 12 USD roundtrip. The bus is fairly decent and would probably be considered a VIP bus in Southeast Asia terms. I knew that I had to visit the Cameron Highlands while visiting Malaysia. I have a friend who grew up in the country and had told me that it wasn’t to be missed. But, I…

Why Singapore Is More Than A Stopover City

September 5, 2016
singapore

Many people travel to Singapore on their way to another destination. It’s treated as a stopover city because of the size of the country/city. The Changi Airport is rated as one of the best in the world, and it’s proximity to the city allows people to explore Singapore if they have a long layover. (The airport even offers a tour for travelers). I was eager to visit, but based off of how expensive/small it is, I decided on spending three days in…

4 Things You Should Do In Ubud

August 24, 2016
ubud

Ubud is arguably the cultural capital of Bali. And while that may be true, the reason I enjoyed Ubud was because of the amazingly kind people who live there. From the guy we met at a coffee shop who spoke to us about Blink 182 to the incredibly nice people who worked at the hotel we stayed. Everyone was just so friendly. It’s always really nice to head somewhere and feel at home. And I felt more than at home…

Why Uluwatu Should Be On Your Bali Bucket List

August 22, 2016
uluwatu

Uluwatu is up next on my Bali Bucket List. And it should definitely be on yours. Uluwatu is a sleepy surfer town and boasts the best breaks in all of Bali. Beginners beware as this is not the place for you to hop onto a board for the first time. The reef creates serious waves and the town is home to the Rip Curl cup. The cliffside town is located about an hour from Seminyak in the southern part of…

5 Things To Do In Seminyak

August 18, 2016
seminyak

Seminyak is just one of those places that you have to visit when you go to Bali. I knew that I wanted to steer clear of Kuta, so Seminyak was the obvious choice on where to visit in the more “touristy” area of the island. I checked into Montigo Resorts which was located in a perfect spot. We were right next door to Potato Head Beach Club and walking distance to several restaurants and fun bars. Seminyak is one of those places…

6 Reasons Why You Need To Visit Gili T

August 15, 2016
Gili T

After 30 + hours of travel I found myself back in Southeast Asia. While my journey was a long one, it was totally worth it. So far my trip has been unbelievable. And it all started in the Gili Islands (more specifically Gili T aka Gili Trawangan). Have you ever visited a place that you loved so much you wish you never had to leave? Well, that was Gili for me. Immediately upon arriving I felt as if I was about to…
