Traveling to Indonesia is quite the trek from California. It is the farthest my physical body has ever been from home and I couldn't imagine staying less than two weeks considering it takes two whole days to get there and another four for your body to adjust. A week into my vacation, Kilian and I were onto another adventure into the Bukit Peninsula. Canggu was amazing and I thoroughly enjoyed it there, but once my skin hit the 75 degree aquamarine water at Padang Padang, I was on a whole new level of my vacation. My relaxation went from a 6.5 to a 10 in a matter of 30 minutes considering how wound up I was. I carry a lot of stress inside my body and have a lot of energy bouncing around most days so for me this was incredibly therapeutic. We booked four days at this European Mexican lookin' villa hotel called the Pink Coco just above Padang Padang cove and loved it so much we decided to stay another three nights. They have a great Italian Trattoria restaurant there which was comforting and it was just minutes away from my favorite spot to eat on the whole journey- Buddha Soul. Kilian and I spent most days going to the beach early for his wave quota, eating an organic infused lunch, followed by a cultural experience to site see, back to the beach for the afternoon for a sunset dip and lounging at the pool. We did this for about seven days straight and it was at Padang Padang that I realized that I could potentially move to Bali and live this lifestyle for an extended period of time. I wish I could have taken more bohemian outfit inspired photos but I found myself in a bikini and sarong the entire time, it was incredibly hot and humid and anything more would have been uncomfortable. I was having my Eat Pray Love moment and gratitude was exploding out of me in all directions.
Enough said. Blessed to take such a long vacation! More photos to come from our stop in Ubud. xoxo
