There And Back Again - Bali

“The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page.” 
― Augustine of Hippo 

If you stay in one place your whole life, if you never meet new people, if you never try new things, how do you expect to learn? I would prefer to try something and fail at it then never do it and always wish i did. I live my life imagining it's a book, i don't want the reader of my story to get bored. 

Bali is beautiful, there i resided at Club Med resort. I like to meet new people, I think that the more people you meet and get to know the more things you learn and the more you widen your mind. So what did I do? I went over and talked to one of the girls, was it a bit scary? yes. Was it a bit awkward? of course. Would I do it again? 100% yes. The guys and girls I met are some of the greatest beings on this planet, a few of them have become some of my best friends. Each one of them was different, they all had different opinions, ideas, experiences, stories and it was refreshing. 

We stayed up till 12.00 at night listening to music, talking. We played basketball in the mornings. We sunbathed in the afternoons. We grew closer to one another and created memories together, things i'll never forget. 

“If you reject the food, ignore the customs, fear the religion, and avoid the people, you might better stay home.”
