Bali Photo Diary


Wearing: 1. Zimmermann bikinis, Bec & Bridge Akubra hat. 2. Vintage dress and handbag, thrifted shorts, Super sunglasses and Witchery flats. 3. Stylestalker blouse, Ksubi shorts, vintage belt, Ellery sunglasses, Witchery flats and Saba handbag. 4. Lover dress, Zara heels, Tresor Paris bracelet. 5. Stylestalker dress, Tresor Paris bracelet, vintage belt. 6. Zimmermann dress, Ellery sunglasses, Michael Kors watch.

A little peek into my island life in Bali over new years. Thankfully I managed to take a few snaps in the first 24 hours otherwise I wouldn't of had photos from this trip- that is besides mental visuals of the stunning dusk skies. From beach bumming in Uluwatu, cocktails at Potato Head, window shopping in Seminyak and temples in Ubud it was great finally seeing why so many Australians go there. I understand now the desire to go for a 'by the pool' hotel cheap holiday, but I'm not sure I'll be going back anytime soon. Or at least, will travel differently. It might be the part of me that is used to travelling - backpacking and hostels around Europe, living the cheaper, more exciting and appreciative mode of travel. If I ever get back to Bali, it will be to explore the mountains and amazing islands with a backpack and disposable camera.

  43. I agree - while I wouldn't complain about lazing by a gorgeous pool on the seaside - sometimes the best memories travelling are when you are roughing it - you get the sense of adventure that resorts don't seem to have...

  47. wow these photos look all amazing, but I totally understand what you mean. In a holiday-by-the-pool your probably only see your hotel and some very touristic cites, but when you go low-budget with a backpack you see everything of a country: its people, its nature, its beauty.

  104. Hi Catherine & Jordan,

    The hotel in these photos that I stayed at is 'Karma Kandara' in Uluwatu. Beautiful beach location and scenery, but unfortunately my camera lens and a friends iphone were stolen while staff were cleaning our villa. They only have one safe per villa, so be careful to only take valuables that can fit in a small safe. Otherwise, it is stunning.
