Oh my. Bali with your buddies.
5 days and 5 nights with no kids – which essentially means; no cooking, no cleaning, no washing, no grocery shopping, no car pooling, no mediating, no negotiating, no home-work supervision…
I’ve been lucky enough to make a few trips to Bali over the years, some as a family, some as a big group of friends, and some as a girl gang. They are all very different trips and there is something in Bali for everyone.
On this particular trip though I was combining some work, with some pleasure. But mostly the later!
I had a couple of meetings, did a spot of sourcing and met my sandal makers. We managed quite a few massages and a spot of shopping, but did more eating and cocktail drinking than anything else, and my word, the options for dining and guzzling are next level.
As a posse of 3, we outsourced our eating & shopping itinerary to B1, B2 was on cocktails, and I did bugger all, except instigate the trip in the first place, and book the odd class of yoga.
Because we stayed in a private Villa in Canggu – which is further up the coast from Seminyak and is little less busy – we decided to keep our dining and exploring local too.
The traffic is pretty horrendous to try and navigate, so staying local meant we could spend more time in the restaurants than on the road.
While Uber is not in Bali, Indonesia has their own version where you can not only get a car, but a scooter ride anywhere you want to go.
Go Jek is the app and it’s a cheap as chips method of transfers as well as food delivery.
Here’s a little visual wrap of our vaycay; the Villa, the restaurants, the shops, the sights, and the dogs.

I’ll write another post soon about the work part of the trip, and then another one entirely for all the wall murals. The whole area was very instagram-able!
Who’s coming with me on the next trip??
As you can see, the trip was all about living our best lives!
Eating, shopping, massages, cocktails, swimming, sunbathing, good chats and downtime.
What more could a girl ask for?
