Seminyak & Nusa Dua 

Bali, Indonesia

For years I have longed of visiting this island and dreamed of what it would actually be like to be there as I flipped through my endless issues of National Geographic. 

This past week I got to experience Bali and it surely did not disappoint. Getting there from Jakarta was eventful to say the least as an erupting volcano in East Java caused an abundance of delayed and canceled flights. But thankful we made it there, and the stresses of the volcano just made our time in Bali that much sweeter.

For the first half of the week, the Bule duo, Autumn and I, stayed in Seminyak and Nusa Dua. These two places were prime areas for beaches filled with white sands, crystal blue waters, and sunsets and sunrises that brought me to tears. 

Swimming in the Indian Ocean, watching massive waves crash upon the cliffs ahead, God was never so present.

"A mountain is composed of tiny grains of earth. The ocean is made up of tiny drops of water. Even so, life is but an endless series of little details, actions, speeches, and thoughts. And the consequences whether good or bad of even the least of them are far-reaching."
