Sidemen, discover the authentic and green Bali


If you want to discover the authentic and green Bali, Sidemen is the place to be. Sidemen is in a friendly area with rice fields, valleys and green hills. So beautiful, this area has been promoted as a Unesco World Heritage. Time stands still here and the daily life of the Balinese is still as it used to be long ago. You can compare it a bit with Ubud 20 years ago. Quiet, beautiful, artistic and situated in beautiful surroundings. Sidemen is located in east Bali about an hour’s drive from Ubud. It’s great to discover Sidemen in Bali, because it breathes peace, calm and serenity.

8 fun things you have to do on Gili Air


Gili Air is a small paradise island located between Bali and Lombok. It is one of the three famous Gili islands and it is my absolute favorite island. Gili Air is not too big and not too busy like Gili Trawagnan, but also not too quiet that there is nothing to do like Gili Meno. A couple of days on this amazing beautiful island is delicious and I recommend it to everyone. The island is small and relaxed, but there is plenty to do to spend some nice days here. What are to best things you have to do on Gili Air?

What went wrong in my journey?


I travel a lot and something goes wrong on a regular basis. It means I have had to visit a doctor in quite a few countries. I am a bit of a clumsy person and I can also be a little nonchalant. Not a good combination! But sometimes I’m just full of bad luck. It does not matter how much I’ve traveled, because I keep the doctor’s visits when I’m traveling. These doctor visits are the less pleasant things of traveling, but I have accepted that it is part of it. After all, it has happened to me so often, that I have become accustomed to it in the meantime. So if you think that I never went wrong in my journey, then after reading this blog you will know that it is certainly not the case!

What went wrong in my journey? Where and why did I visit the doctor abroad?
