NUSA LEMBONGAN AND NUSA CENINGAN TRAVEL GUIDE

Travel

What an incredible day! This was my first day exploring Nusa Lembongan, Indonesia and I was pleasantly surprised. Originally, I had booked a few days on Nusa Lembongan to chill out and edit. No exploring planned.

My friend and I decided we might as well see what Nusa Lembongan had to offer and ended up having an incredible day!

First stop was a restaurant called Nano Nano that had a beautiful mangrove right in front of it! The plan was to have lunch, do a mangrove tour, and finish with some snorkeling. That didn’t exactly happen when we arrived and saw the tide was out and there was no water in the mangrove! hahaha rookie mistake. Oops. So make sure you check the tides on Nusa Lembongan if you plan on visiting the mangroves. The mangrove tour did look pretty epic if I say so myself. Next time 😉

While having lunch we made a new friend who told us about a secret cliff jumping spot on the adjacent island called Nusa Ceningan! Naturally, we had to check it out. The cliff jumping area featured in my vlog is called Blue Lagoon. I had planned on jumping but once we got there and saw the tides there was no way in hell I was getting in that water haha. If you are planning on going cliff jumping at Blue Lagoon, it’s best at low tide AND you must be a VERY strong swimmer. Our friend who jumped almost didn’t make it out of the water. Scary stuff.

Overall I was pleasantly surprised at how incredible Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan were. The islands were a great escape to the high-season Bali crowds.

Hope you enjoyed today’s travel vlog and learned what to do when visiting Nusa Lembongan and Nusa Ceningan!

THE VICEROY, BALI

Travel

Welcome to The Viceroy in Ubud, Bali!

For this Ubud travel vlog series I’ve partnered up with The Viceroy Bali to share their boutique luxury hotel nestled in a jungle paradise.

I’ve been to Ubud a few times before, but this was my first visit where I ever felt like I was getting the true “Ubud” experience.

The moment we stepped into our suite, my jaw hit the floor. Our room was incredible! It was decked out with a private pool, gazebo, living room, and massive California king size bed. Watch the first Viceroy vlog linked above to see what I mean.

We spent our entire first day just hanging out in our private villa/suite enjoying the jungle views and lots of room service. The Viceroy Bali made a damn good Nasi Goreng, but you couldn’t really go wrong with anything on their room service menu. Highly highly recommend.

I can truly say this was one of the most incredible experiences I’ve ever had, and the Viceroy Bali is absolutely stunning. If you are looking for a luxury Ubud experience, this is the place to be. Also major honeymoon vibes!

Hope you enjoyed this glimpse into the Viceroy Ubud, and see you soon.

SUSTAINABLITY

Lifestyle

This is 100% my favourite video I’ve made yet. Not because it’s the most entertaining, because I am finally talking about something close to my heart – protecting our planet.

Admittedly, sustainability has been a passion of mine only for about a year or so. Everyone knows you’re supposed to use less plastic, recycle, etc. But I don’t think you can truly understand the effect global warming and excess plastic consumption has on our earth until you see it firsthand.

About a year ago my boyfriend and I spent a month in Tulum, Mexico. When booking our trip, we were expecting a tropical paradise with crystal clear water and lush jungle. Sounded like a dream. Upon arrival, we saw a jungle filled with garbage and dark red water (that literally looked liked blood) teaming with seaweed, bugs, and trash. Not once in our entire month in Tulum did we swim in the ocean. 

This. Woke. Me. The. Fuck. Up.

I honestly can say I was a pretty wasteful person up until this trip to Tulum. Seeing a beautiful paradise destroyed because of my own laziness and wasteful habits was my breaking point.

Enough was enough.

After this trip Troy and I made big changes to move our lives to becoming more zero-waste. I will be talking about this more but thought I’d start with a few simple tips on how you can be less wasteful and keep tropical paradise… well, paradise.

Today’s vlog on simple sustainability tips shares what I saw in Bali (hint: it’s not clean beaches…) and how you can help prevent more beautiful beaches from being destroyed!

Hope you like this video on simple sustainability tips and make sure to leave it a thumbs up.

LOMBOK, INDONESIA

Travel

Welcome to Lombok!! This trip was one of the most memorable I’ve ever had and definitely need to go back and explore more of Lombok.

Lombok is an island near Bali, about a 20 minute flight to be exact. I wanted to come visit Lombok to escape the crowds of Bali for a bit. July is busy season in Bali and it is veryyyyy different from March here. When I visited Bali in March it was wonderful. Now, it’s honestly a bit crowded for my taste!

Lombok was the perfect escape from the crowds. And there was so much to do I definitely could have stayed an entire month!

Make sure you check out my Lombok series to get a taste of what it’s all about!
