Bali, part 2

Tuesday, December 6, 2011


The second part of my trip to Bali was spent at a yoga retreat at Bingin Beach. We stayed at the most beautiful hotel that had the coolest rooms I've ever seen. One room was literally built into a cliff; there were no walls and it was essentially a hobbit cave.

The whole thing was incredible. I wore flowers in my hair, slept under a flowing mosquito net and stretched my body in weird and wonderful ways I never thought possible (hello kurmasana!).

My only complaint... this trip was way too short! I can't wait to go back to Bali someday...

The hotel is owned by French people, so of course the food was divine. Breakfast every morning included these wonderful brioches; they were made fresh every day!

One of the most hilarious things I've ever seen - DISCO BUDDHA!

The food was so good! We spent a lot of time sitting around devouring mie goreng and drinking the local beer, Bintang.

We had the sweetest room. A private pool, tv, outdoor living area and kitchen, and to top it all off it was decorated with this strange mermaid porn.

The yoga space is this beautiful circular room sans walls. But who needs walls really?

  2. i'm loving all this! ok, all but the mermaid porn, that was really weird!


    i gave up on my yoga teacher last month and i'm a bit sad, just wondering what should i do next, i hope i'm not bothering you if i ask for some advice... i know it's kinda tricky because i'm here in a country so different and all, but dunno, just thought... you know, these times when you find out you have to change roads and find something that's more true to yourself...

  3. Looks divine! my sister and i spent a few days at a surf resort close to Bingin when we went to Bali two summers ago and it was definitely the highlight of the trip. Seeing your photos and browsing through my old ones makes me feel peaceful!
