Last but not least, today I want to tell you everything about Bali and my personal favorite places where to stay, eat, shop as well as what to see and do in this beautiful tropical paradise. Some say this island is overrated, a paradise that has lost its way and getting dirtier every year. But really it has just devopleped transforming from a low-key hippie haven to a enormous soulful place, where you can stay smart but still find a barefoot vibe.
Hiding deep between the Dachstein mountains, approximately one hour far from Salzburg, with its lakeside views and charming old buildings make Hallstatt one of the most charming villages in Europe. There must have been fairytales born from this spot and so perfect, that China made an exact replica of the village to serve as high-end housing. When I heard about this fact I had to laugh, because they can really go too far doing replicas! *giggles*
Whether you are looking for beautiful beaches, DJ’s or good cocktails, here I want to share my personal favorite beach clubs and the hottest addresses to chill and party the holiday hours in Bali. The best beach clubs cover the island from Uluwatu to Ubud, offering cool music, watersports, beautiful bamboo beach bars and sunset cocktail views. The best way to spend sunny or cloudy days are definitely lounging on a sun bed, cocktail in one hand, book in the other while listening to either the residential DJ or crashing waves. Whether you are spending your holidays in Seminyak, venturing down south, or have decided to go Island-hopping – here I have a list of Bali’s hottest beach clubs for you.
Since you can find everything online, travel booklets and destination brochures are long gone. Bali is loved by many travelers and holds a special place in so many hearts. Those traveling to Bali visit the island for many different reasons, and do things very differently to what I will try to recommend in this guide.
Elizabeth Gilbert’s „Eat, Pray, Love“ put Bali on the map as a single girl’s romantic „finding yourself“ destination. So if you are a devoted traveler and looking for a home, you might just consider dropping your bags for next several months. But overall, Bali is so much more. You can dress it up in accommodation or dress it down and still have a great experience, which is one of the main reasons why I love Bali.

I am always fascinated by the association between the way we enjoy happiness on a daily basis and how we choose to live our lives. There are choices that you make every day, some of which seem completely unrelated to your happiness, that dramatically impact the way you feel mentally and physically. In our daily lives it’s easy to miss the forest for the trees and completely overlook some of the small, simple things that can disproportionally affect our levels of happiness and general fulfillment in life.
After Jimbaran, Ubud and Seminyak, we decided to spend our last week in Nusa Dua. A peninsula in South Bali and well known as an enclave of high-end hotels and resorts. The beaches are glorious – sand, deep, long and clean. We made the right choice and choose Conrad Bali for our last days in Bali.
Outstanding luxury boutique resorts in the heart of Bali, Komaneka in Ubud offers unforgettable lush experience in the middle of Bali’s jungle. Here is my experience and the photography diary from Komaneka at Bisma, Rasa Sayang and at the newest Komaneka at Karamas Beach.
After a while, I am back again with a fresh new post from my latest adventure in Bali. As you might have already seen on my Instagram, lately I have been posting lot of pictures and stories from Bali. Finally, I can tell you about my experience and show you many pictures, which makes it easier to describe how beautiful this trip was.
After visiting the south of the Italy, Südtirol Tourismus invited me to visit the most beautiful autonomous province in northern Italy, South Tyrol. The province is bordered by Austria to the east and north, specifically by the Austrian federal-states Tyrol and Salzburg, and by the Swiss canton of Graubünden to the west. The landscape itself is mostly cultivated with different types of valleys and forests and is highly mountainous. Entirely located in the Alps, the province’s landscape is dominated by mountains.
Visiting in 1953, John Steinbeck enthused: ‘Positano bites deep. It is a dream place that isn’t quite real when you are there and becomes beckoningly real after you have gone.’
Amalfi coast and Positano was always on my bucket list, and I am so glad that I had the chance to visit it this year. I would say that after Côte d’Azur, it’s my second favorite coast in Europe. I love to explore new places, but I truly couldn’t get enough of Positano.
