Bali, Baby

I spent 3 weeks in Bali. The weather was about 35 degrees celsius everyday- if not more. Humidity was crazy high. It rained once; a downpour for about 5 minutes. It was one of the best weeks of my life!

Kupick gets a tattoo!!! 
I met Kupick on the airplane from Perth (AUS) to Bali. He studies to be a chef in Perth but visits home every now and then. I asked to borrow a pen to fill out my customs card and we created a friendship from there. He showed me all around Bali and introduced me to his family, friends and yummy street foods!

I am so happy I met him. Thank you Kupick, for showing me Bali outside of the tourist realm, and introducing me to your tattooing uncle. Hehe. (Sorry mom)

I liked his shirt.

Waterfalls! Not sure the name of this place - but it was so perfect.

Wedges and beer anyone?!

Seminyak Beach

The colourful lunch shack, again.

Kid at the waterfall! He swam away when the 3 other little girls started swimming toward him and it was so cute!

Just before the falls.

Chill Kupick

RAINBOW 

bali swing



I loved the rainbow under the waterfall. It was so beautiful - even with all the tourist. 

Bali Swing - what you don't see haha!

Kupick on the swing!! It's actually quite high 

he was scared

but he liked it

Kinda looks like the Miramichi river (New Brunswick) but not at all. 
... Same same but different...

Waterfall Swing ft. cellulite on my ass

traditional buffet style Balinese meal at Bali Swing
I had rice, veggies, tofu and tempeh. 

traditional building

waterfall swing pt 2 

Buffet meal at Bali Swing

waterfall swing. very scary, very unsafe. It was like 20 feet down once you started swinging and there was a big lizard below me. If I fell, I thought I was going to get eaten. Turns out those lizards don't like humans :)

Buffet again because who doesn't love food

My Facebook profile pic (Currently)

Loved her hat

Kupick being a scaredy cat

And he's flying!! 

Waterfall swing! No Fear!!! (but maybe a lil)

happy kupick

Waterfall shower! It felt so good. Turns out it felt good because my skin was actually burning and I didn't know it - so the water felt even more refreshing than normal

happy hillsy

Kupick - my favourite driver! haha. He totally powered through traffic like a boss!

passenger safety

happy sunburnt waterfall lovin

going REAL fast

Kupick being rad

Ubud (town centre)

My turn to be rad

Ubud vines. I tried to touch one as we drove through but they were just out of reach :(

What are traffic lanes?

Outside a temple in Ubud

My shirt matched the plants

I don't know this lady or her story; but I made one up for her. I love how she's smiling outside a photo studio. I've decided in my mind that she just had some rad pictures of her self taken and realized how beautiful she is. She is smiling at the world because it's hers now. 


Bali girl

The flora and fauna - minus the matching shirt.

People of Bali. Love the look on this child's face! Photos from the back of the scooter #2

Banana store. Photos from the back of a scooter #3

Walking along the side of a temple. A Lizard was on the ledge at face level. I caught him in my peripheral vision and he made me scream. Kupick laughed. Kupick never let it go, either. 

Bali traffic

Post shopping ride. Taken from the back of the scooter (Again)

Kupick's Wheels. Kupicks House.

His sister, who is traveling to Miami (USA) this year! I'm so excited for her, I've never been but hope to go someday. I can't wait to see pictures from her trip.

A free waffle... I love free things. Thank you Puri Saron!

The entrance to my villa. I booked for 4 nights, but only stayed one. It was a cheap villa located in Kuta. I didn't feel safe and ended up moving elsewhere. 


Uluwatu, Bali

Uluwatu, Bali

Uluwatu again, by Kupick

At ABC again, Kupick took my camera and played with it. Changing the shutter speed as the sun went down. Changing the settings. Just trying new things in general. I love learning and I love watching people learn.

Morning coffee @ Puri Saron

Seven and Nine tattoo shop decor.

Sketchy villa but yum coffee. Wearing Sean's T Shirt and his boxers as shorts. 
I was scared and was really missing him. 
Sean did FIFO work. 4 weeks on and 1 off. 
He couldn't board the plane to Bali because his passport expired exactly 6 months from the day his flight was supposed to leave. Even with getting an express passport it would of been too late. Express takes 2 business days, and it was on a Friday evening. He wouldn't of gotten it until Tuesday, and he had a flight back to Perth on Thursday. He was back to work on Friday.

But on the humorous side, I carried a bag 1/2 full of his clothes around for 3 weeks. I literally took all his clothes. He had no shirts, shorts or briefs upon returning home - just work clothes and things that no longer fit. LOL. 

Am I? oh... what a shame if I stumbled in eh...

Make tattoo not war

Healthy breakfast at Loft Bali. I tried 3 different smoothie bowls, they were all OK - but the Green Juice was TO DIE FOR.

Q: How many pictures of the same thing is possible?? A:  A Lot.

Office.

Seven and Nine... You may have seen this on my photography page already :)

Close up!

Kupick being cool!

Shortcut road in Canggu. I hate this road. So many cars/ scooters go off the edge here and end up in the rice paddy haha! I hated driving though here and hung on extra tight every time.

A selfie at my villa in Canggu. I stayed at Elements BnB. A cheap place in a prime location! Perfect for travellers/backpakers. I would definitely stay here again. 

Shortcut again.
