I am obsessed with everything French - the food the, the wine and especially the effortless style of a French girl. I will be forever trying to emulate the natural je ne sais quoi they all possess. As stereotypical as it may be I have dreamed of travelling there for most of my life and was so happy to start living my French dreams with a trip to Paris in September 2018.
The Gilli Islands are situated roughly 3 hours from Indonesia and can be reached by a fast boat from Sanur. They are made up of three small islands, Gilli Trawangan, Gilli Meno and Gilli Air. Gilli Trawangan is the largest of the three and is more know as the "party island" and Gilli Meno and Gilli Air are more suited for honeymooners and couples. I have been to Gilli Trawangan and whilst if a party is what you are after you can find it, there are also plenty of places to relax and unwind.
Nusa Lembongan is an island located southeast of Bali and takes about 30 minutes on a fast boast from Sanur. There are many different companies with varying boast sizes and for those who get sea sick luckily the ride is only 30 minutes but it can be very rough at times. You are able to take day trips quite easily but I would really recommend taking some time and going for at least a few days. This is my top location for rest and relaxation.
While there seems to be some stigma about it in some circles here in Australia, heading off to Bali for a family holiday every year was always exciting and has led to some amazing experiences that I am ooh so grateful for. Have a read about two of my favourite spots in Bali - Seminyak and Ubud
After jetting over to this wonderful tropical paradise over 30 time...yes I really mean 30. It has given me what I would consider some good grounds to write a few post about it. Over the years I have seen Bali develop and change into what it is today, while now it is much more a tourist destination you can still find the spots that give you the true Bali feel and allow you to escape what can only be described as mayhem. I find there are often complaints around how many people there are and are that fact that has become touristy, I think we have to keep in mind that around 90% of Bali’s revenue comes in from international tourism.
