The Super City Trip by Cathay Pacific had 6 different stops and after Hong Kong, Sydney and Melbourne my trip to Bali just ended. I’ve been to Bali for the third time now. First as a 20-year-old backpacker – when I still documented the trip with pen and paper in a diary and with film rolls – and after that with my sister just after I’ve started Petite Passport seven years ago. A lot have changed since then: more taxi-drivers asking you if you need their transport, more Eat Pray and Love soul seekers and definitely more surf hipsters on the coast. The atmosphere is amazing and that’s what people attract to this island. You can party, stay at amazing hotels or seek yourself during a yoga retreat in Ubud. I’ve started in Seminyak with a stay at the Brown Feather Hotel (more on my website soon), a beautiful and affordable b&b. Then I went to Ubud for an Ayurveda & Yoga Retreat as my personal holiday and it was amazing (if you’re interested check out One World Retreats and sign yourself up, you won’t regret it!) and extended my time in Ubud with a stay at the fantastic Bisma Eight Hotel. The service, the food at Copper Kitchen & Bar, the view from the infinity pool, the spacious rooms: well, basically everything is A+ here (more soon). To end my stay in Bali I visited Canggu, the new Seminyak. And the place where hipsters, surfers and pretty yogini’s come together. I’ve experienced The Slow, a new, small hotel with a restaurant so beautiful my jaw dropped when I entered. A true feast for the eye: and the belly too if you try the food!


More about my favorite places on Petite Passport soon, but for now let’s see what caught my eye during my time in Magical Bali:

    Love your photos! I’ve never been to Bali, but it’s on my list for a very long time now… It seems to be such a relaxing place and I hope it’s not going to be overcrowded by Eat Pray Love soul seekers by the time I time get there :)))
    Love from Berlin,

    So glad you enjoyed Bali!
    Bali always changes everytime I go there, eventhough the trips are a week apart :’D
    But it always gives me certain vibes each time I landed there 🙂

    ps : I’m the one who recommend “Watercress” in instagram. I hope you had a chance to go there.
