Bali Day 23

Arik and I were all packed up and ready to go. We both wake up hella early so we were sitting around for a while. Started getting hungry so we decided to take the motorbikes and find some breakfast.

We found this cute little spot that had a little shop in it. Had a yummy little breakfast and I bought a sarong. I saw it and was like, “yes! Thats the one”. We sat there for awhile just relaxing, cuz that’s what we do in Bali.

We rode back towards the house and dropped off the scooters. Dude was gonna come and pick them up but we were right there so we took them back. It was a short walk back to the villa and we still had about an hour. We moved all of our stuff into the garage and waited for Eka and Ayu to come pick us up.

They arrived right on time and we threw everything in the car and we were on our way. We went to Kuta first and dropped off Aric at his new pad. We got a tour of his little studio apartment, private kitchen and bathroom, both separate from the bedroom.

We said our “see you laters” and the rest of us jumped back in the car and headed to Canggu. We had a challenging time finding the place, we drove passed it and had to turn around. We had to call the hosts to ask for a landmark.

We finally find it and we unload and check the place out. I saw one guy who was apparently checking out and it looked like it was just going to be me. I asked Eka and Ayu to drop me off at the grocery store as it was on their way out of town. It was right down the street so I didn’t mind walking back.

I bought a watermelon and some eggs, water and a pastry; really a chocolate croissant. I threw it all in a bag and meandered back to my pad. It was a hot walk. When I got back I unloaded the groceries and found my bathing suit and jumped in the pool. So refreshing.

I sat down on my bench and I chilled out for a bit. As I sat there I saw someone pull up on a scooter. I sat and watched the interaction with the host. The gentleman turned around and walked toward me and introduced himself. Including a little pup, named Bingo.

Bingo

His name is Ken from Canada. He has been in Bali since January. He was the only other person here at this place. We talked for a while and offered me a drink. So we had a couple of drinks and hung out poolside. After a while I started to get hungry, it was probably around 3pm so I asked him if he wanted to go grab lunch somewhere.

We got ready and we were gonna go to this little spot called Dandelion. But as suspected, they were closed, as many restaurants were closed. So we rode around saw a bunch of pizza places open. I don’t really do pizza and being in Bali, I really don’t want pizza; Even though I ate mexican food here… I still didn’t want pizza.

We rode around for about 10 mins and passed a greek restaurant. We pulled in and were told that we have to sit a certain distance from everyone. Only a handful of people were allowed to eat there at a time. We lucked out and we were able to sit.

Holy wow…So good and filling. I hadn’t eaten since breakfast at like 730-8am. So I ate everything. I had a sampler platter with everything on it. I even made room for dessert, baklava…YESSS! No I did not eat the ice cream…LOL

When we finished eating we headed back and went our separate ways. It was early but I was tired. I spent the rest of the evening getting settled in and relaxing.

As I sit here writing this I realize that I go out somewhere and I come back and relax, either poolside or in my air conditioned room. I do a lot of relaxing, I feel that that is what life is all about. I kind of do that at home too but not to this degree; But at home I caught caught up with material things as far as being in your own home and having everything you need at your fingertips; As opposed to being somewhere with just a few things. I find myself sitting with self more and reflecting. Meditating has been my go to.

I am just blessed to have this opportunity to sit with self to reflect and manifest in the most beautiful place I’ve ever been too. In one of most healing places, as Bali riddled with healing energies.

Bali Day 19

Today I got up and jumped in the refreshing pool. Made some breakfast with what we had left and decided to go check out the beach and go grocery shopping.

We rode the motor bikes to the beach and it was hot. We parked and meandered down what would be like a “boardwalk” if you will. It was cool, mostly everything was closed but a few warungs and restaurants. Aric had come down here the day before on his walk and found this place that serves smoothie bowls.

We finished up there and continued for about another 10 mins or so. All the resorts and hotels had beach front properties and the pools were huge and empty. Everywhere was empty. A handful of people were lounging on the beach chairs under the shade but only in one little section.

The local shops that were open had women outside trying to get anyone to go and buy anything. I have been analyzing what I have and I am kind of getting bored with the same clothes, but I don’t need anything yet. If I am here longer than we will see, for now, I stick with what I have.

The beach there was interesting, as the waves brake what seemed like a mile out. So the shore was more like lake water. Not something I would jump into because of my phobia of lakes. Lol. It was weird to see the waves break so far away, all the boats were parked close to shore so when the tide is out, the boats are stuck till the tide comes back.

We eventually made it to the grocery store and Aric had invited Eka and Ayu over for dinner this evening. So we made sure we had enough rice and what not to make fried rice with egg and pork belly.

Fried rice with pork belly, bacon, egg, onion, corn, green peppers

We got back chilled out for a while and kicked it poolside. We bought extra beers and I still had a bottle of wine. Eka and Ayu came by as the sun went down and brought a guitar. I think Ayu left around 9 to go pick up her roommate from work and brought her back over. When they arrived they picked up the guitar and sang, it was awesome. They were so good.

We planned our next adventure, which was to go to Mount Batur for sunrise. which meant we needed to leave at 130am. We planned to do that not tomorrow but the next day, because we would have to go to bed by 5pm or 6pm; well, so I could wake up at midnight.

We played in the pool, played the guitar, and drank until it was time to go. They all left at midnight and we went to bed.

Love, Light and Healing
xoxo

Bali Day 18

Today we move from Saba to Sanur; closer to things like grocery stores and food. This new place has a pool and 3 bedrooms. We don’t need 3 bedrooms but the price was good so we took it.

We rolled in and got our scooters delivered. We took them out and found some food at the Glass House, delicious.

When we got back I went to get a mani/pedi, a facial, and a hair mask. All for less then $20, so grateful. It was a few hours and I was relaxed, I saw Aric walking by and I was like, what are you doing here. He went out for a walk and he was heading back to the pad so I gave him a ride.

Kicked it by the pool and relaxed for the rest of the evening.
