Being Bipolar in Bali

I can’t believe it’s been more than three weeks since the day I’ll be describing in today’s post. Time really does fly! I better get down to business while my memory is still fresh. On Saturday, the 2nd of August, most of our group stayed at the villas, while the rest opted for some Ayung River rafting. Me not being an adrenaline junkie, I decided to skip the adventure, but my sister was, of course, totally up for it. She took my Go Pro with her, filmed some footage for me – which you can see in the vlog below -, had a blast and then returned ‘home’ with food poisoning. She got the famous ‘Bali Belly’ and it got to her pretty bad. She wasn’t eating at all for a week! But don’t worry, when she got her apetite back, she ate her own body weight in chocolate, haha.

While she was dealing with her belly problems, I didn’t have the time of my life either. I was forced to go get a massage, and it was very uncomfortable to say the least. Long story short, I was stripped down, suffered in pain and had a panic attack afterwards. Yay me! You can watch the vlog and listen to the whole story below. 

All I can say is, thank god we later on went to my happy place – the beach, more specifically Echo Beach. It was just wonderful and I felt right at home for some reason. Echo Beach is very popular among surfers and has a really amazing vibe. Hawaii meets Australia, I would say. Man, I miss Australia… Anyway, I really enjoyed spending my afternoon there. I was jumping around in the water, watching cool surfer dudes, listening to music and witnessed the most amazing sunset I’ve ever seen. I couldn’t put my camera down and ended up taking about five hundred photos, which, by the way, don’t even do the sunset justice. 

After I was done oohing and aahing, we went for a dinner to the restaurant right by the beach. They had all the fresh sea food on display, we picked what we wanted to eat and then they cooked it for us. Everything was delicious, there was live music playing and I was one happy camper. Totally different from my meltdown self a few hours earlier. This is what I call the power of the beach, ladies and gentlemen.

    That beach looks beautiful! I'm sorry you had a panic attack, though, those are never fun esp. when you're on vacation and think you're home free! The beach makes me feel better, too :)Jess | The Mod Mermaid

      Nekomu, ki ne razume dinamike naše družine, je težko razlagati. Imam pač dva zelo trmasta starša, jaz pa potem raje popustim, kot da se en mesec prepiramo. To je tko zelo na kratko. 😀

    Sončni zahodi na Baliju so res nekaj posebnega, jih kar pogrešam <3Haha za masažo te pa čisto razumem 😀 Jaz sem bila v Ubudu na enourni masaži, prve pol ure je bilo super, ko je masirala hrbet in noge, ampak potem ko me je obrnila in začela masirati trebuh sem pa kar hotla zbežat od tam :/
