Bali: Eat, Laugh, Live

Visit and explore the Indonesian Archipelago, Bali for a 6 day 6 night exploration of this tropical paradise. 

Soft white sand will caress your feet as you stand gazing at a beautiful sunrise and sunset. Limestone cliffs, hidden waterfalls, tropical rainforests, and a culture that will envelop you with the true magic of the Balinese history. 

 Expand your horizons with the spirituality of the Balinese, bask yourselves in the shadows of epic temples with history intertwined in every stone, and be enthralled with the magical colors of everchanging seascapes. 

Join us on this epic adventure of Bali, Indonesia.  

I think it is about time to create our own Eat, Pray, Love adventure!

We will spend up to two days exploring the amazing city of Ubud.  Ubud is the spiritual city seen in the movie Eat, Pray, Love. Experience the magic of Sacred Monkey Forest of Padangtegal, one of Ubud’s most sacred places; a natural forest sanctuary that is home to around 400 grey long- tailed macaques.  We will feast our eyes upon the layers of wonder of the Tegalalang Rice Terraces and the coffee planatations.  Later on we will visit the famous Tirta Empul Water Temple and tramp through the jungle to explore the magical hidden waterfalls of Bali.

If you want to learn or improve your photography I will be there to help at each location.

Getting there

  • GROUP AIRFARE: If the trip has 10 or more travelers, the Company offers group booking for airline travel, the cost of which is included in the Total Cost of the trip. The group airline travel service requires a non-refundable $200.00 deposit to secure the airline contract within 60 days after your initial registration date. For this option, Wanderlust-Explorations contracts directly with the airline carrier selected by the Company based on the unique needs of the trip. The factors considered while selecting an airline will include, but not limited to the airline’s reviews, travel availability and schedule to the desired location, and cost. The Company will communicate with you which airline carrier has been chosen  prior to the departure date once contracts are secured. The tickets will be issued approximately 30 days prior to the departure date.  Benefits: you do not have to do a thing including booking and issuing tickets.  Wanderlust Explorations handles it all. 

 

  • BOOK YOUR OWN AIR:  When selecting this option, it is the responsibility of the traveler to arrive at the trip meeting point at the date and time required for the beginning of the trip. Wanderlust-Explorations will not delay the trip if a traveler does not arrive at the departure point on time.  You will need to ensure you are in Bali for pick up with the group by 9am on June 24, 2022. 

 

Weather

  • It is summer time! Lot's of sunshine and one of the best months to go.  High temps of 79-80 degrees.  I say bring on the tan!  Remember the sunglasses.

Gear to Bring

  • A camera or go pro. Remember what you bring you carry.  If you are a photographer like me, I will be bringing a light weight pocket size tripod so I can capture some amazing images along the way. 

  • In June it is summer! Tropical clothes and  sandals here we come. If you are hiking please bring trail sneakers.  While sandals may be awesome to wear I would still bring a pair of comfortable shoes.  Some locations will require walking.  What is awesome is summer clothes means lighter bags. Do not forget a bathing suit.  Do not worry about the spiritual clothing we will need for some locations we can rent or buy cheaply there since they are particular  due to the culture.  If you like yoga, bring yoga pants.

  • Sunscreen please do not forget. I do not want to have anyone BBQed. 

  • Pajamas: many of you have room mates that may not want a show
