#WanderlustWednesday: Bali

It’s been stupid cold here in Nashville the last few days and all I want to do is run to someplace warm and if it has a beach, than even better. You see, I lived in the desert for the last 7 of 8 years. I don’t do cold. I must admit, I am a wimp when it comes to cold weather and I have already begun to whine about the cold (my apologies to anyone who has to put up with it).

Therefore, I would do just about anything to be in Bali right now.

Bali is one of the islands/provinces of Indonesia. Because of all its natural beauty it is regarded and the “Island of the gods”. You have anywhere from sandy beaches, to rugged mountains to rich farmland. You can actually hike around Rinjani which is an active volcano or you can go scuba diving in the coral reefs surrounding the island. And of course, one of the more popular activities, surfing. Bali is one of the top destinations in the world for surfing.

Bali is also renowned for it highly developed arts. There is a diverse art culture with both modern and traditional art/dance. Even their temples are like pieces of artwork. If the arts really aren’t your thing, Bali is also known for being a relaxing destination with multiple luxurious spas and places for meditation and/or yoga.

Its an absolutely beautiful place and with this cold weather right now, I would love to just be able to sit on the beach, smelling the fresh ocean breeze whilst taking in a bit of sun.
