We hopped back on the fast boat from Gili back to the mainland and headed to Canggu in time for New Year. We found a gorgeous villa on AirBnB which was pretty cheap, within walking distance of a bunch of great cafes and the beach, and had an amazing pool. Time flew by in Canggu; we spent about a week there, going to amazing cafes, walking and swimming the days away. On New Year's Eve, while there were many NYE parties going down at all the beach clubs, we decided a nice meal, some wine and a chill night was the go, including watching the copious amount of fireworks being set off by local kids all night.

Next up, we headed down the coast to Jimbaran, a beautiful and quiet beachside town, where we were lucky enough to stay at the amazing Karma Kandara Resort. Getting away from the hustle and bustle of the bigger towns and cities in Bali was perfection; we basically spent our time here hopping between our pool and the beach just down the road. More of this in a future blog post.

Our final stop in Bali was the amazing, isolated little cliffside village of Bingin. Bingin was a hidden gem, an unexpected slice of paradise, and exactly what I'd hoped for from Bali. We stayed at The Sun and Surf Stay, which is an adorable little B&B right on the beach at the bottom of a cliff (yep, a lot of stairs were involved) made up of converted little surf shacks. This was the ultimate chill out place; beach, sun, surf, sand, sunsets from the hammock on our balcony, and there was even a veggie/vegan restaurant no more than 10 metres away with the perfect sunset viewing balcony to perch on (Swami's Stay and Cafe, in case you're interested). Bingin is also super close to Uluwatu if you're after another surf break, or an amazing Nalu Bowl (get the Uluwatu Bowl, holy moly I dream of it).

And that's Indonesia! And our travels! But I'm already dreaming of our next adventures, so stay tuned...
