It wasn’t a dream, but I always had a “good feeling” about Bali. Everything I saw, read and researched about the island fascinated me.
The fact that I lived in a cold place like London also helped me realize that I actually need the opposite. There is nothing better than to live close to the beach. I enjoy being in a place that has warm sunny days like in Portugal. I also enjoy beautiful sunsets by the sea and many other things that we begin to miss when we don’t have them.
Initially, I never thought I would have the courage to visit Indonesia alone, I thought it was dangerous. However, after long searches and contacting other people in Indonesia, I realized that there were several “solo travellers” in Indonesia and all over the world as well. I realized that it wasn’t dangerous.
As soon I was sure about what I wanted, I booked a one way ticket to Bali. My heart still beats fast when I think about the day that I booked the trip! Buying that ticket was without a doubt the bravest things that I’ve ever done in my life and I’m really proud of it. Making the decision to travel to Bali wasn’t easy because I had to deal with people trying to change my mind. Remaining focused was really hard, but I was sure about what I wanted. I had enough time to become informed about everything I needed and take necessary precautions.
Now that I’m here, I just want to say that my time in Bali has been an incredible experience. It feels so good to get out of your comfort zone and know other realities. When you travel alone you push yourself to meet people and you pay more attention about what’s happening around you. In just two months I can say I already feel like I have a second home in Bali!
