Best Brunch in Bali - Pomelo Cafe, Berawa

Saturday, 20 May 2017

I have driven past Pomelo many times but never had a chance to go in, one morning in search of good breakfast I thought I would give it a go.
They have a great selection on the breakfast menu, for an average Canggu/Berawa price. After receiving my food, i defiantly think you get more for your money, compared to other places I have tried you don't get half as much food as you do here for the same price.

I went for the 'Breakfast Package' where you choose any dish off the breakfast menu and included you get choice of tea or coffee, fresh juice and a fruit salad for 95.000IDR - £5.35.
The food was very tasty, fresh and aesthetically pleasing. The staff were very attentive and friendly and the café itself has a beautiful shabby chic type deco and also has a pool!

I would defiantly recommend this café for an appetising, filling breakfast to start you off right, before hitting the surf.

Gunung Kawi Temple | Bali, Indonesia

Saturday, 13 May 2017

Gunung Kawi is an 11th century temple in Bali, north east of Ubud. Beautiful shrines were carved into the rocks of the cliff face. It serves as a temple, but also a shrine for the Kings of the past. There are small rooms carved into the rocks which are used for meditation.
Gunung Kawi is an important source of holy water because the Pakerisan River that runs through the temple and is believed to transform into holy water as it flows through.
Walking around this sacred grounds, you get a sense of peace fall over you. Surrounded by rice fields and a vast jungle, you absorb the beauty of the nature that encompasses you.

Alternative Living

Sunday, 7 May 2017

When I first heard about the Tiny House Movement and Van Life Movement I instantly fell in love.
The idea of living in a small, simple space matched my yearning for a minimalist lifestyle, but also the fact that these homes can be moved, so you travel with your home and choose to park your house where ever, in front of a lake, in a forest, overlooking the mountains.

My goal is in the future to travel in a van that I have refurbished and designed myself. Travelling through Europe and perhaps an even longer road trip from the UK to South East Asia! I'm not sure how I would plan that as of now, but it is an idea that has lingered across my mind a few times.

I also love the idea of building your own environmentally friendly tiny home. Harnessing solar energy to power my home, repurposing old wood and furniture to build and adorn it, using a compost toilet. You will also have less utilities to pay, paying a small rent for the land you choose to live on. But the best part, like I said before, is just being able to have your home where ever you like.

Here are some of my favourite small homes and van life conversions that inspire me.
