2015 i was very lucky to have the chance to travel to bali, the beautiful island of gods, twice. i love to extend summer quite a bit, as i am definitely not a cold weather lover, and i constantly have 'meerweh' so 2015 has been THE perfect year for me! summer almost all year long from beginning of march till the end of october.
i spent three weeks in canggu in march and another three weeks at a friends house in canggu in october. the first time was packed with surfing and my friend susi and i had a blast surfing with rian from dana surf bali. rian, a true balinese and his wife martina from braz/austria who met in bali years ago live in canggu and run dana surf guiding bali and are the producers of dana beanies. so if you're looking for a really good surfguide in bali, rian is definitely your man!
the second trip in october, which i did with philip, my lovely boyfriend and photographer, was a bit more uneventful when it comes to surfing. the plan was to go surfing but also to do a bit of mountainbiking and hiking and to go to ubud to buy more beads for a new range of bracelets.
over the last years bali has not only become a great place for surfers, but also an amazing place to go mountainbiking and see the island from another point of view. so when the waves were quite a bit to big for us at the beginning of our trip we checked out a mountainbiking tour via the chillhouse, which is also located just around the corner in canggu. they offer different tours for different levels of bikers, and it was great to see bali offside the main roads on a mountainbike. bali can be so quiet!
