I can’t finish this series without dedicating one post to animals. All of you probably know stories about monkeys at the Monkey Forest or the Uluwatu Temple complex where they often take sunglasses or cameras from visitors. I have told you already that you should buy fruit before taking a walk towards the actual temple. Monkeys are believed to be guarding this holy complex, so they are not to be disturbed. You will come across them sitting on the fortified walls, peacefully, like waiting to be given some treat. (more…)
Okay, so we have covered the most popular places to visit in Bali so far, famous temples being among the first. And I did mention few things I bought in Bali, but I feel I should dedicate the whole post to souvenirs and things to bring from the island. Why? Well, maybe because I was surprised by few places I got to visit here. But also, because none of these things were expensive and they do help the community and local craftsmen. (more…)
The tradition of Bali is so colorful, radiating with life from every corner of the island being that the beach on the coast or the lush greenery inland. It is something you will witness in everyday life, it reflects in daily offerings, traditional dances, crafts etc. (more…)
Even though Bali is part of the (mostly Muslim) country of Indonesia, it has a strong Hindu tradition. More than 85 percent of the 4,2 million island inhabitants practice Balinese Hinduism. Hence so many Hindu temples – about 10,000 that are dedicated to different deities from the land and the sea. Bali is actually nicknamed The Island of Gods! (more…)
When I woke up that first morning in Bali, I didn’t know where I was exactly. The room was huge, there were birds singing outside in a manner that I have never heard before. I even looked up to see if maybe I have left the TV on the night before. Bright light was coming through the terrace door. Got up and opened it… Oh my! Where was all this last night! (more…)
Who would have thought Bali would become such a “trendy” island! I mean, sure, it was always popular because of its beauty, wonderfully lush nature and tradition, its dear smiling people, but this is way above what I might have expected few years ago when I visited for the first time. While I was thinking about this Bali series for the blog, I often stumbled across posts and photos from Bali, “things to do”, “ultimate places to visit” etc. and it seems like – everybody is in Bali at the moment or they have just come back from the place! You can’t even say that you like to travel if you haven’t been to Bali yet, right! It’s fascinating how the place can “explode” in a relatively short period of time! (more…)
TRAVEL TO BALI
It’s time for one beautiful island everyone seems to be talking about lately!
Located near the Equator amidst the 17,000 Indonesian archipelagos, it lies between Java and Lombok, and it’s surrounded by the Indian Ocean.
Even though relatively small and remote, it makes everyone who visits fall in love with the place at first sight. (more…)

What Nobody Told Me FRANCE is live!
The first trip to this mesmerizing country is always memorable, so I just had to pack mine into one charming book. And just imagine – while reading about places to visit in the capital of Paris or Nice on the French Riviera, strolling in the footsteps of Claude Monet or Vincent van Gogh, you will be accompanied by not one but two guides, one of whom has just stepped out of the 19th century!
Well, just grab your own copy on Amazon Kindle and enjoy the ride. You’ve never had a trip like this before, that’s for sure!
You might want to check out the new Author Page on Amazon. It would really be helpful if you would consider following, or getting the eBook and writing few kind words in a review.

Jordanian resort of Aqaba is well known and very interesting considering the fact that you can come for a vacation, but also visit few extremely attractive locations at the same time such as Petra or Wadi Rum. It might not be the best idea to come during summer though, because of the weather and high temperatures. So, even if it’s a bit early to talk about vacation, it’s just the right time to prepare for 2018. Who knows – you might consider traveling to Jordan after this series! (more…)
