Since it was my first time truly traveling alone, I decided at the beginning of the trip that I would record a video diary of my time in Bali. Anything to do with feelings/experiences on solo travel!
This is what I came up with, and I wanted to share it as a *hopefully useful guide to anyone thinking of traveling solo. Maybe “guide” is the wrong word… “realistic expectations” might be more appropriate. haha
It’s important to me to always be honest with you. And when I am vlogging, I am stoked 99% of the time. But there was a lot of time off camera on this trip where things went wrong and/or I wasn’t super excited about where I was. So I wanted to share both the good and the not-so-good parts of solo travel to help give you a realistic summary of what the experience was like.
Hope you enjoy this video – and thank you for your support on the Bali series! So much more goodness to come – every Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday 😉
In the video I briefly mentioned price but honestly it was so loud it was hard to vlog lol. The prices there are expensive for Bali standards, but for USA standards, they are VERY reasonable. I think the min spend is about $100 per head, which if you compare that to Vegas, is nothing!
Honestly have never ever taken myself on a solo date before, and I have no regrets!! This “self date night” (let’s call it.. lol) in Seminyak, Bali was so much fun, and I would 150% recommend if you are ever in Bali that you check out the mixology course at Katamama Hotel. SO. MUCH. FUN.
Basically you get to invent two custom drinks and make them yourself with the guidance of their epic bartender! I went with one that was similar to an old-fashioned (which is my cocktail of choice!) and then one with a local fruit. Both were INCREDIBLE.
I’ve been to so many “instagram cafes” here in Bali and a lot of the time the food and drinks look amazing, but in reality it tastes just average. This spot, was actually incredible. SO YUM.
OH ALSO, my boyfriend is here now!! So nice to have some company for a little bit while traveling. He’s only here for a few days, but it’s great nonetheless.
Alright so in today’s Bali vlog we test out the trendiest cafes and restaurants in Canggu. Specifically, The Lawn and Crate Cafe. Make sure you watch the video above to learn the TEA about these spots.
Ok, that’s it from me for today. Hope you’re having a great one!
