Sacred healing springs of Tirta Empul Temple

After our terrifying motorbike experience in south of Bali, Olivier and I are now a little bit shaken up to hire another motorbike for our next gallivanting. Of course, there are other options such as joining group tours or hiring a car for the day but gosh, our wallets will then have the nightmares! Luckily, our graceful host offered his new motorbike for cheap rental and guaranteed us that the traffic wouldn’t be as horrible as in Kuta. Imagine our relief! Our itchy feet would be out exploring far after all! 🙂

Serene privacy at Kuta Lagoon Resort

After months of contemplating, Olivier and I has finally decided to visit Bali as our first holiday destination as a married couple. People have been raving about Bali ever since I can remember so like the saying goes… It’s better to see something once than hear about it a thousand times. So, Bali it is! 🙂

How to get to Raja Ampat

There are three options available for adventurous budget travellers looking to explore Raja Ampat. In no particular order, these are; organising everything yourself, joining a group tour or renting a cheap bungalow by the beach for a week. Whichever option you choose, you will need to get to Raja Ampat and there is only one practical way to do this: fly.

What it was like to dive with a giant Oceanic Manta Ray

Due to the strong current and low visibility, we had to do a negative entry (i.e. descend rapidly head first) to the dive site. I was in a lot of pressure because if I f*ck up the entry, I will be drifted away and will miss the dive. I am new diver and the condition of this dive site is not suitable for me however, LUCKILY, my Dive Instructor promised to take care of me throughout the dive. So, bring it on!
