9 Things To Do In Bali.


9 Things to Do in Bali



Earlier on in the year I visited Bali for the first time! In Perth going to Bali is almost a rite of passage and it seems like nearly everyone has been at least once, with people visiting multiple times every year. For such a tiny island there are lots of place to visit and things to experience. It doesn't matter if you're an adrenaline junkie or a culture buff there is something for everyone.

In no particular order is is a list of nine things you can do when you visit Bali!

This year is absolutely flying by! It's been a whirlwind of changes with work, house developments, family stuff, plus all those little everyday things that just pop-up. All these things mixing together with a lack of motivation and inspiration has pretty much ended up with me putting a lot of of things in my life on hold (this blog being one of them!). A little bit of soul searching has helped me realize that I'm on the fast track to burning out. I know this term is often thrown around but there is no better way to describe it and now that I'm understanding myself better, I can step back, reassess and move forward.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Waiting..For progress updates on how the house is going! We've just entered lockup, so there is only a couple more months to go.

Exploring...  Perth! I've got some time off from work and instead of going away, I'll be exploring my home city. There's a whole ton of local places that I'll be checking out.

Listening... Suicide Squad: The Album. I loved the movie and I love the album just as much!

Trying... To declutter. With the prospect of moving out coming up closer I've decided it's time to sort through all my stuff. I've got piles of stuff to sell, donate and throw away, and all non-essentials that I want to keep are getting boxed up.

Watching... Luke Cage. With plenty of  plot twists, action scenes, Marvel easter eggs and a kick ass sound track, this series can't go wrong!

Watching..Black Sails has finally started up again with their third season. I can finally get my pirate fix! They've introduced Edward Teach (Blackbead!) this season and I can't wait to see what they do with this character.

Baking...  Apple Roses! I found this recipe on Pinterest awhile ago and my friends birthday was the perfect excuse to try them out.

Drinking... Mojitos! The perfect summer drink. I've been playing it healthy and holding out on the rum though...

Waiting... For Summer to be over! Perth is apparently staring a run of 40°C days. It's not my idea of fun.

Buying... Birthday presents. I have a whole bunch of birthdays coming of people who I am quite close to. This year I'm planning ahead to try and find the perfect present for each individual. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Trying...  To make some good habits! I'm trying to get myself into a healthier way of thinking. This means aying attention to what I'm actually eating and pushing myself to workout more.

Making...  Plans to go to Bali! Flights and accommodation have been booked, now it's just figuring out what we actually want to see and do.

Wishing...  It was pay day. This day does not seem to come around enough.

Seeing...  Perth Fringe Festival shows. I love this time of year when the city just seem to come alive with people and events. I've just seen two Fringe Festival sows and I'm definitely wanting to see more!

Thinking...  About the future. What exactly is my superannuation? How much should I be trying to put away? How can I do that and save money at the same time? Being an adult is hard...

Eating... You know how you can make mugcakes? Well I decided to make a mugcookie using this recipe. It took me less than five minutes and it was delicious! Next time I make one though I will definitely be sharing, it was a bit of a sugar overload!

Waiting... For Australia Day! Not only is it a public holiday but it is the day that the BF flies back home (FIFO life, aye). 3 days left...

Enjoying... House sitting! It's nice to have a whole house to yourself for a week. No one to judge when you're feeling too lazy to make dinner, so you have cheese and crackers and the chance to be as loud as I want in the mornings. Bliss!

Wearing... I took advantage of Modcloth's recent sale and I bought some new dresses! These are the ones here, here and here. They're a little different to what I usually wear but it always fun to try on something new!

Trying... New recipes! My Pinterest addiction has inspired me to try some new recipes but... they haven't always worked. Some have just not worked and others have just tasted plain weird.
