A Beautiful Bali Wedding

It’s not often that your friend has a destination wedding, but when they do, BALI.

The breathe-taking scenery of Bali, Indonesia is just what one needs to break away from the humid city life.  This trip was unlike any other, because it was plotted, with people I already knew, and actually had an agenda.  If you are looking for resources, I cannot tell you, because for once, I didn’t have a budget 😉

What I can tell you:


You can bribe the airlines in Jakarta for an upgrade, and it will only cost you .50 cents.


Nothing can ever define the amount of love in true friendship and how a friend will go to great lengths to help someone in a time of need.


No amount of money can convince a Balinese to strip-tease at a bachelorette party, however if you read the fine line details of their job description, you can cleverly work out an alternate towel delivery scenario.


Traditions are beautiful, and more meaningful when you understand the purpose behind them. I thought I lost New Zealand after leaving, but it will always be in my heart.


Gili Backpackers does not allow refunds for upgrading to an amazing resort, but that’s okay.


You can get anywhere by bike in Gili. However If you take shrooms at the hen-do you may be too afraid to bike back in the dark and end up staying with a strange man on a beach.


Bali puppies are afraid of boats…but love turtles


Whatever you do, don’t take the shake, a shake, or any shake. *strange man on beach, remember?


Your trip never goes as planned…it is always somehow better than what you expect.


Just because you have a receipt for a boat, does not mean you have a receipt for that boat. You could miss your flight. There are worst things.


Japanese airport showers are just as cute as the long plane ride home to New York City.

Ahh sigh. Bali, I have dreams about you to this day. Something very special moving in these waters. I hope to one day return to your beaches, much stronger and full of love than when I left them.
