The 10 coolest Bali Airbnbs.

You guys know that I am an obsessive innate planner when it comes to traveling. While sometimes I take it to the extreme, I really enjoy myself in the process, and it means that I usually end up with really nice places to stay. I am a truffle pig when it...

A Foodie’s Guide to Ubud.

A Foodie’s Guide to Ubud.

I did not stay in Ubud for very long and only realized that it definitely hadn't been long enough when it was too late. Ubud is quite wonderful and despite being very touristy I immediately liked its vibe and its restaurant scene. Honestly, I was not a big fan of...

The Amankila ABC.

The Amankila ABC.

Today I want to show you more of my recent favorite hotels: the Amankila in Bali. Here I got to spend a couple of nights and attend their on-site wellness retreat which was pure heaven. But honestly, even without the retreat a stay at this hotel would have been pure...
