Anantara Uluwatu Bali

Anantara Uluwatu, Uluwatu Bali

When traveling, my strong preference has typically skewed toward Airbnbs, or boutique hotels. I’m also not a big resort person. While the idea of laying around a pool being served cocktails all day probably sounds appealing to anyone, me included, when I travel, I really like to experience the culture of where I am.

Uluwatu Temple Bali

Uluwatu, Bali

My final day in Bali I made a trip to the Uluwatu Temple. After time spent at the Anantara Uluwatu Resort, stepping back in to real life was made somewhat easier by this beautiful place. The Uluwatu Temple is situated at the very edge of a massive cliff. It basically feels like you’re a out on […]

Sanur, Bali

A little while ago, my friend A invited me to go to Peru with her. It being Christmas and knowing my mom would be livid if I didn’t go home, I declined, but lived off her stories vicariously for months. One of the things she said really struck me; she described South America as “her […]
