A GUIDE TO NUSA PENIDA

The largest of the Nusa Islands and only a short boat ride from Sanur in Bali, Nusa Penida is quickly becoming a tourist hot spot, and for good reason. Rugged terrain and turquoise waters, Nusa Penida is both unique and beautiful. It hasn’t quite caught up with its growing tourism which just adds to the…

48 HOURS IN UBUD, BALI

I haven’t been to Bali in 10 years. From what I see on Instagram and hear from friends – it’s a completely different place. The fancy beach clubs in Canggu look great, but come at a cost – and that cost is Perth prices! Bali can be done on any budget. It also has much…
