Bali, an Indonesian island situated between Java and Lombok, is less than 150 km long and only 50 km wide. Nevertheless, it offers a plethora of different landscapes ranging from long, white beaches to rice terraces and volcanoes. I experienced Balinese people to be friendly and open-minded when backpacking their island. More than 90% of them are Hindus and immolate neatly-made boxes filled with flowers every day before they eat in order to praise their gods. Here are some of my favorite pictures. Enjoy Bali =)
By the way if you haven´t read “Eat, Pray, Love” by Elizabeth Gilbert yet, I strongly advise you to do so. It´s a fantastic book about a successful woman taking a year off after her life appears to have fallen apart. She spends some time in Italy (Eat) before moving on to an Ashram in India (Pray) and falling in love in Bali (Love). I found the movie to be really disappointing and recommend reading the book instead.
Anyway….here are some of my favorite pictures taken during my four-week holiday in Bali.
