Lombok waterfalls post earthquake

It was world news when a 6.2 magnitude earthquake devastated the island of Lombok, killing close to 500 people and injuring thousands. There are no words to describe the sadness I feel for the beautiful people of Indonesia who lost loved ones and had their homes and businesses destroyed.

Lombok, being known for its beautiful beaches, stunning waterfalls, and incredible volcano hike, was a place that I had had always wanted to visit. So on my last trip to Gilli Trawangan, a nearby island to Lombok, I decided to head over to visit some of these waterfalls and see how the island was doing.

Canggu Japanese with a view

Last nights Japanese fusion feast at Ji Restaurant in Canggu was definitely one of my favourites in Bali. The prices are reasonable, if a little higher then the standard Canggu restaurant, but the food is exceptional so it is worth every cent.

Knowing how busy the restaurant could be I jumped online and made a rooftop reservation. There are three levels to this restaurant and all have a different vibe and experience but the rooftop is definitely the favourite. 

We arrived just before sunset at 5.30pm to watch from the roof, and by sunset the place was packed. We were welcomed with a cute little sign and as it was before 6pm happy hour was still going so ordered my favourite cocktail their, the Fuji.  

Just one street back from the beach the rooftop gives and incredible view of the surf and sun disappearing over the horizon. 

Highly recommend the Dragon Roll, the Tempura Udon (served cold) and the Arancini Balls, finished with the chocolate ball with caramel ! 

This restaurant is great for couples or groups, with awesome group dining table options sitting on cushions around a table, Japan Style!

hope you enjoy!

Bali’s healthiest hotspot

When I first heard about AMO spa I was a little sceptical. I found out it would cost me 235,000 Rupiah (approx $23) to use the sauna and pools for a single session, and I wasn’t really sure what the hype was about. However after months of putting it off I finally decided to give it a go, and I was very pleasantly surprised.

Camaya Bali treehouse

I don’t know about you but when I was a kid the coolest thing in the world was a tree house. There was something about them that invoked excitement in me, and made me feel like magic existed. 

That’s why when I was invited to visit this villa that same excitement raced through me. I knew exactly where it was having had it on my bucket list for some time, and let me tell you the place is even better then the pictures.

Set in the rice terraces of Karangasem, Camaya Bali is an eco friendly bamboo house that is perfect place to detach from the rest of the world and enjoy an experience of pure bliss. 

My eyes were wide with wonder the entire time I was there, constantly in awe of the beautiful structure, incredible attention to detail and stunning scenery. Although the space isn’t huge every area has been cleverly created to fit the rest of the villa, and allow a whole new perspective of the house and incredible surroundings.  

                    

There are two big beds, one in the upstairs bedroom and one in the downstairs area. There are no walls in the downstairs area, with only mosquito nets separating you from the outside world. I stayed in this ares and loved every minute of it, noises coming from geckos, frogs and the pouring rain, it reminded me of camping as a kid and really made me feel like I was in the outdoors.

The house came equipped with musical instruments, which we made great use off, basic gym equipment, an incredible hammock, a beautiful bamboo kitchen and a gorgeous outdoor shower.

          

However the best feature of Camaya was the net attached to the upstairs bedroom, that when filled with blankets and pillows, provided the perfect spot to chill and take in the incredible rice field views. There was absolutely zero human footprint as far as the eye could see and meals were brought promptly each day from the Camayas small kitchen just a short walk away.

             

Camaya has left me with butterflies in my stomach knowing that such beautiful places exist. I am so thankful to be able to experience such a beautiful place and cant wait to return here some day soon

THE MOST MAGICAL CITY IN THE WORLD

Hot air balloon breakfast on the rooftop of Sultan Hotel

So I have been travelling on and off for a good 6 years now. I have visited 22 countries and many many more cities, but there is nothing quite like last city I visited on my most recent 6 month trip.

AND THAT PLACE IS CAPPADOCIA, TURKEY. 

There are no words to describe how fast and hard I fell in love with Cappadocia. It was the most magical city I have ever visited and I think it is one of those places that needs to me experienced to be believed. I have been travelling Europe for 4 years now and I can honestly say I would go back to Europe purely to visit this city.
