5 Villas with Private Pool in Bali for Under $125

Seminyak Villa

Before I even started planning for our trip to Bali, I knew that I wanted to stay somewhere special.  It’s Bali after all, and just any regular hotel won’t do.  Bali is all about luxurious villas with private pools precariously perched in the middle of the jungle or surrounded by rice fields.  Whether you’re looking for private pool or to-die-for view, Bali’s got it all for less than $125 USD per day!  Yes, you read that right.

Whisky Tour

IMG_9980

Whisky is Scotland’s national drink and its biggest export. For more than 500 years, skilled distillers have taken the basic ingredients of barley and water and transformed them into single-malt whisky. Over the years, many attempts have been made to copy the unique fiery taste of Scotch Whisky in different parts of the world, but with no apparent success.  By law, the spirit cannot be called Scotch until it has aged in Scotland for at least three years, but most single malt whiskies are left to mature for much longer.

Photo of the Week: Majestic

IMG_1884 Yosemite National Park, USA

This photo was taken from Glacier Point of the majestic Yosemite National Park.  It’s no secret that I love aerial views.   I’ve always wanted to see every place from above, so that’s why I am excited to to finally get a drone.  I’ve thought about this for along time, but never taken the plunge, until now.  I am so excited to try it out when we’re in Scotland.

Photo of the Week: Balloons

IMG_1093Bagan, Myanmar

Sunrise in Bagan is one of the most magical moments. Each morning we would set the alarm and roll out of bed when it was still dark out.  We would put on our clothes while half asleep while questioning ourselves why we were up at that ungodly hour.  Then we hopped on our bikes and headed out into the unknown.  Our mission was to find a small temple with a terrace where we could go up and watch the sunrise.

It was still dark out when we finally made it to the top.  We sat there patiently waiting for the sun to rise and the hot air balloons to make their way over the horizon. At the crack of dawn, a sliver of light shined through and you could finally see glimpses of this magical landscape.  In the morning a thick layer of fog also blankets the area creating this dreamy effect. Even with the 4 am wake up call, it was worth the effort every time.

Family Time in Powell River

IMG_3189

For Canada’s 150th birthday, my family made our way West to British Columbia for our yearly get together. It’s a tradition that we started after we all grew up and moved apart.  This year we choose to spend an idyllic week at a small town on the upper Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. The week was spent with good food, good company, and lots of memories that will last a lifetime.  Continue reading

This was the scene from our beach house where we spent a blissful week enjoying nature and each other’s company.   We swam, kayaked, and and relaxed by the beach.  We even got to forage for our dinner along the shore.  Check back for my detailed post about our time in Powell River, B.C. next week.
