Balinese offering to the gods

It’s nearly the end of the trip and I hardly know where to start. There’s been so many experiences since I last wrote. We made it to Kalibaru, after a long train ride, arriving so late at night we couldn’t see what Kalibaru or our accommodation, Villa Kendi, looked like. We climbed into bed, half-watched a bit of Indonesian TV and dozed off. We woke early the next morning to the sound of a man singing, calling the locals to prayer at a nearby mosque. It’s a sound we’ve got used to travelling through Java, that and the ubiquitous crowing…


Relaxing in Bali

It may be 7.30am but Kundalini is something I was really curious to try before this trip. So here goes. As I expected, the teacher focussed on our breathing, guiding us to take short, fast breaths in and out through our nose, while holding different poses. It was hard work. It felt odd and I struggled to keep the intense breathing going for as long as everyone else.

Nevertheless I felt the effects. Strongly in fact. Throughout the practice the teacher kept mentioning emotions and that we should just allow them to come up. I thought little of it, feeling…


Art at Hotel Tugu, Java

Oh Malang. We weren’t supposed to end up here. After a lumpy night’s sleep in Oro-oro Ombo with no sink or hot water, we were supposed to be well on our way to Mount Bromo by now. Halfway up it in fact, preparing to be wowed by sunrise over a simmering volcanic crater the colour of Heinz tomato soup. But we completely ballsed up our transport.

So instead we caught a train to Malang, and I’m so glad we did for one reason. Hotel Tugu, also home to one of the largest collections of Asian art and antiques in Indonesia…


Exploring Prambanan, Java

My fiancé Ben and I are now in Java, after a thirty hour plus journey from New York. Not that I’m complaining. I managed to sleep a bit on the plane and watch a few movies, including the charming ‘Julie & Julia’, about a thirty-something blogger in New York. How fitting.

From Yogyakarta airport we took a bluebird taxi, through a dense shoal of motorcycles to Duta Guesthouse. En route a poster read ‘You’re not stuck in traffic, you are the traffic’ and I had to smile. On arrival there was less smiling. Confusion over whether we’d pre-paid or not…

We’ve walked for miles. Every day. Central Park, past career girls sunbathing on their lunch-breaks. Brooklyn Bridge, overlooking the expanse of the Hudson River. The Met, through towering tribal effigies and cool-skinned Roman gods. I didn’t expect to like New York as much as this. Having recently moved out of London, I didn’t think I was ready to fall in love with a city again, but I was wrong.

It was Union Square that did it, in the baking sun against the backdrop of the Hare Krishna drums. There were men, both old and in their prime, sitting patiently at…

The big day has arrived. As I write I’m on a plane to New York City. I have an old friend in Manhattan who will be putting me up for the week. Me and my fiancé that is. After the U.S. we’ll fly to Java, Indonesia, where we’ve given ourselves a further 2 weeks to make our way down through the island and over to Bali where we’ll end our trip.

Why is travel so vital? Well if you live in a big town like I do then nature is a big part of it. Ok, I’m not going to…

Love Wim Hof? Me too. I’ve been a cold shower girl ever since I read his book ‘The Wim Hof Method’. 2–3mins of icy water every morning, while singing along to Wim’s funky theme tune ‘Crazy Like A Monkey’. For those of you who don’t know Wim, he’s a global health leader championing an all-natural method blending breathwork, meditation and cold therapy. In 2011 Radboud University conducted a study on Wim that proved he could voluntarily influence his autonomic nervous system using a breathing and meditation technique — something previously thought impossible.
