Hello, hello! Have you missed me? I hope not too much! Well as you may have guessed I’m living my very best life in Bali right now but wanted to pop by, let you all know I’m still alive. Hi Mom! And despite my best efforts I know that some of you still are not following me on Instagram so I wanted share some of my favorite photos from this stunning part of Indonesia! I have been here for more than a week so here is your brief update, reporting live from Bali!
The first few days I spent in the Gili Islands, staying on Gili T but visiting all three – Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air. There are no cars allowed on any of them and it made for a tranquil start to this vacation with gorgeous diving, beautiful sunsets, and a snorkel trip before boating back to mainland Bali.
Next up was Ubud located in the uplands of Bali and famous for it’s rainforest, terraced rice paddies, Hindu temples, and those jungle swings. You know the ones… I visited all of these plus a few waterfalls and the monkey sanctuary – it was a terrific few days in this lush greenery, and just wait until you see my swing pictures! Here are a few shots from the Ubud area:
Then I headed south to Legian, just north of Kuta, where the scuba diving shop I worked with is based. And I have spent the last three days on seven dives across different parts of Bali. My dives favorite were a tie between Tulamben, where I dove in and around the Ship Wreck USAT Liberty, and Manta Point off of Nusa Penida with the giant manta rays, on average 12 feet each!

Hopefully you don’t mind the short check-in and that you like these photos because there are SO many more Bali shots coming in your future here on Sparkles and Shoes! And let me know if you would like me to post again, another iteration of reporting live from Bali!
Also, a MASSIVE happy birthday to my Mom!
