Who would’ve thought that traveling for 30 hours and a 12 hour time difference would work so well in our favor?
The first night we got to Bali we crashed at 7 or 8 pm local time, something we almost never do at home. This led to us waking up before sunrise without alarms. Our first morning we got to watch the sunrise from the edge of a cliff (more to that story for another time). Every night we went to bed and woke up early. The sun set at 6:30 so we had to take advantage of every bit of daylight we possibly could.
This allowed us to experience every single sunrise and sunset during our time in Bali, something I will be forever grateful for. It was so worth it to wake up early every morning and it was so easy when we went to bed on time. This is definitely something I know we will do every time we travel from here on out and something I want to incorporate into my everyday life too!! ✨

I am 5 countries away from making to my goal of 30 countries before age 30
Where should I go next???
Huge shout out to @stabilgear for getting us up The Rockies. Upon arriving to the park, rangers let us know that the trails we were looking forward to hitting had already iced over and would be impassable without the right gear. We wouldn’t have made it through our hikes without the Stabilicers we rented in town. We’ve definitely gotta throw a pairs of these on our shopping list.
Tonquin reflections from August; we saw glaciers, caribou, mint green lakes, craggy peaks, and ALL the muddy trails. I’d classify the Tonquin as a Type 2 fun type of trip...lemme know if you feel the same way 😆
