Sensational Sideman…

I’m in love – with Sideman!  Its stunning untouched, unspoilt landscape…its peace and quiet. The real Balinese countryside. It’s what Ubud used to be like 30 years ago.    Smiling, hardworking people in the fields, not harassing you to buy anything.  It’s a salve for the soul.     We decided to stay in Sideman (Sid […]

Stepping Up to New Experiences…

Stepping into the unknown and unfamiliar is very scary…imagine a 13 year old boy from a small village in Bali, travelling away from his home, his family, to embark on a special Super Camp, with children from 11 different countries…having to eat strange food,  and speak English for a whole week, which he has never ever […]

Wonderful Connections…

One of the things I love about traveling is the wonderful people you meet along the way…some of these connections turn into lifelong friendships. And so it was, that on our last two days together, Christine and I had the wonderful opportunity to go and stay at Orchid Villa, the home and retreat centre of […]

Unbelievable Ubud…

So, I’ve been in Bali about six weeks now…it’s going VERY FAST!  The first four weeks  in Ubud with Christine were fantastic, we both loved it and had a lot of fun, ate amazing food, drank amazing healthy drinks, had amazing massages and did some amazing shopping – what more could a girl want!   […]

Bali Green School…

I first found out about the Bali Green School when I lived there for five months in 2011.  I remember thinking how amazing it looked.  I got to see it in person this week and to say it blew me away is an understatement! I think my driver took me to the back entrance but it […]

I’m Here…Body, Mind And Spirit…

Week two in Bali and what an incredible week it’s been.  I now feel grounded here, happy and at peace.  I haven’t felt like this in years… I feel myself stepping into my power again…into the light…and it feels great!    My awesome week started Sunday May 26th when I had my first (this trip) Chakra […]

Learning To Be…

I’ve been in Bali one week.  As soon as I got off the plane and stepped into Denpasar Airport terminal, my nose filled with the smells of Bali – insence and sultry warm air – ahhh it’s great to be back!   I’m still settling in.  The first three days were intense.  I was so exhausted […]

Forever Evolving…

It’s been an interesting few weeks.  I’ve been busy getting myself organised for my trip to Bali – booking flights, accommodation, checking vaccinations required, insurance, packing up the bits I have with me in Tauranga to go back into storage again.   Changing Emotions… I have been experiencing mixed emotions with it all.  On one […]

Follow Your Dreams…Part 2…

Follow your head, follow your heart…the one that wins is the path you take…It’s a perilous journey and more often than not the head wins.  You find yourself still in the job you hate. You stay in a relationship that is no longer working.  You want to buy a house but feel trapped by the […]
