Bali Day 6

Waking at 4am this morning was not cool, but in lieu of everything going on in the world I decided to do some research. I found more places closing and decided that I am going to have to stay in Bali! oh darn…

I called home to see what my parents found out, as I delegated some tasks of research. We found the number to the embassy and my dad emailed them in regards to my situation. I shared with my parents my thoughts on everything and let it all go. After all, today is my last day and I want to enjoy every second I have left here.

Passion Fruit, Mangosteen Fruit, Snakeskin Fruit, Rambutan Fruit

I had an appointment at 8am for a reiki session from a dear friend Cathy Abeyta in California. I laid down on the napping bed and we facebook video chat. We went through all the chakras and found out some pretty amazing things. I released so much that was no longer needed. Quite honestly I’m not sure what was released and I don’t need to know. I felt so much lighter, like a feather taken by the wind. It was amazing. So blessed to have had such a shift while here in this magical place. We pulled cards, asking a question about my situation with the visa, Universe has plans for me and I need not worry. She validated everything I knew and was feeling.

Feeling blissful, I reach out to Vipin. We were going to go to the waterfalls for one last hoorah. Even the girls came with us, it was so fun. We trekked down a hidden trail and this time I wore my hiking shoes. Glad I did. Another day in paradise as we approached the waterfall. We were a group 5. We were the only ones there for a few minutes.

Tours started to come in and so did the couple that came to Wavi the day before, my neighbors. We all played in the water, skipped some rocks and watched people take all their instagram photos. Yuni built some of her rock formations and everyone was having a grand time. We were the last to leave this beautiful place and in perfect timing as it started to sprinkle. Which would eventually turn into a down pour.

When we got back Vipin was going to head out to another village to stay for a few nights. So we said our see you laters and went our separate ways.

I went and packed everything I could, I figure I will get up at 5 anyways, and pack the rest. I will be sad to leave here. I found out that everything in this little village is closing too. I will be picked up at 930am and head to Kuta. I was going to Kuta so I would be closer to the airport. But now I am not going to Cambodia so I get to actually start planning my trip; sort of. I have a list of places I was intending on going so when I get to Kuta I can take a look and map it out.

But first thing first, Thursday morning I will go to the immigration office and figure out what is going on; and take it from there. In the meantime, a fellow GLT’r (Girls Love Travel) is in Bali as well. We planned to meet for dinner tomorrow night somewhere. So I will contact her when I get down there and see what we can make happen.

Blessed

I hope wherever you are in this World, I pray that you are safe and kind to others. Everyone has their own version of whats going on and their own feelings towards the events that are taking place.

Be loving and compassionate as you only have this very moment…

Epic Journey Abroad

I embark on the most epic journey of my lifetime thus far on Tuesday. I am going to Bali and Cambodia for 2 months for my first solo trip over seas. I bought my ticket last year maybe around September and have done zero planning of this trip for when I am over there.

I am going to Bali for a week and then to Cambodia, Siem Reap, for 2 weeks. Then back to Bali for the remainder of my time. I only set myself up in 3 places. The first week I am there I have found a nice AirBNB in Ubud, where I will spend the first 3 nights before I go all the way to the other side of the island to stay in a treehouse for several nights. And that’s all that I have booked in Bali. As for Cambodia I booked a hostel for the first 3 nights I am there and that’s it too. I figured everything will work out the way it’s supposed to when I get to these amazing places.

So the most planning I did for this trip was setting myself up for success at home. I have student loans, a car loan, bills etc. The one thing I am ever so grateful for is not having rent to pay for while I am away. I had just moved back from Florida and leaving my stuff at my parents while I am away. And I no longer have a job or incoming money and who knows what will happen when I get back. I have no clue what, when, where…

With all these loans and bills that I owe money to monthly, I started saving money to pay everything through August so I won’t have to worry so much when I get back, in May. Financially I am set and free to do whatever I need to do to enjoy my time abroad.

My original flight was flying through Sol Korea, due to Worldly events I had to change everything around. I am now flying through Australia there and back and for those of you who know me, I have more chances of “Gummy Bear” this way! hahaha

Ok so now comes the packing list. I have never done this before and thankfully I had my sister who has to give me tips. I am not a backpacker, although one day I would like to try, but I am only bringing 2 carry on bags. A backpack and a small standard suitcase.

Packing List:

  • 3 soxs
  • 7 underwear
  • 3 tshirts
  • 3 shorts- all for different purposes
  • 2 pants
  • 1 skirt
  • 1 long sleeve
  • bathing suit
  • 4 tank tops
  • rain jacket
  • bandana
  • 2 flipflops- 1 for bathroom
  • hiking shoes
  • everyday slip on shoes
  • band aids
  • toothbrush/ paste
  • deodorant
  • colloidal silver
  • protein bars
  • tissue packs
  • visine
  • my hair product
  • shampoo/ conditioner
  • Imodium, migraine pills, benedryl, vitamins
  • Journal
  • small journal
  • book
  • laptop
  • camera
  • headphones
  • travel battery pack
  • extra bags to shrink down stuff

That feels like a lot but I am going for 2 months so thats what I got.

I will let you know if that is too much or if I didn’t use anything, but I am happy with my decisions for each item I am bringing.

All in all I googled and read so many blogs and did a lot of research on everything that I feel confident in the non-planning. I have many ideas and listed them so I know where I definitely want to go. But I have no set time to do them. Just going with the flow.

I get asked a lot, are you scared? Are you nervous? How can you do something like that by yourself?

Bon Voyage

The answer is this, I am excited, my nerves are jumping around for sure but in the most positive way possible. This is my birthday trip that I have been talking about doing for the past 5 years, this was going to happen. Everything happens for a reason and in Universe’s time, I am beyond grateful for the opportunity to do this solo. It’s going to be a true adventure like none other. I see so many young women and men travelling solo worldwide, there is no reason I can’t do it either. So here I am… following my joy, my happiness and most importantly my authentic self.

I will see you in Bali…
