One of my fave parts of my job is connecting with the locals.
Spending time with my guides opens up my mind SO MUCH - Everytime we hang I go home with a new lesson and a new perspective on Indonesia, specifically Bali. .
As a tourist or even as an expat, we still have these ideas and perspective about the island and the Balinese culture...
🇮🇩 Which proofs itself so wrong so many times (in my experience), if you just give it some time... (and you need a lot of time hanging out with locals, and I mean genuine hanging out with them) in order to really get it and understand this country (and each island is SO SO different! Lombok is a completely different world compared to Bali, although it's just a 20 mins plane ride away)...More to this in another post. 🙏
A few months ago I started to hate Bali, simply because 'people are so unreliable' (this is my old perspective speaking)... And so many people are...and I started to become confirmation bias, it really wasn't fun anymore ... 🧐
But hey, my new experience is exactly the opposite. I found realiable people who joined my team, 'got rid' of most of the old team (thank God, it took me far too long!!!) and I feel incredibly happy and accomplished. 🌴

Did you know? Architect John Heah was just 27 years old when he designed Four Seasons Sayan. Inspired by the extensive use of flowing water in Balinese heritage, he created the gravity-defying rooftop lotus pond as a unique entrance into the resort, and a tranquil spot to dine among the treetops like @alanxelmundo#wheninubud#wakeupwithFS#FSTakeYourTime Tag someone you would love to take to Bali 🌴
Komodo is a national park in Indonesia located within the Lesser Sunda Islands in the border region between the provinces of East Nusa Tenggara and West Nusa Tenggara. The park includes the three larger islands Komodo, Padar and Rinca, and 26 smaller ones, with a total area of 1,733 km2.
The national park was founded in 1980 to protect the Komodo dragon, the world's largest lizard.

Hop on a 40-minute coastal train from Porto and you'll be greeted by Aveiro's treasure of a station covered in Portugal's famed “azulejos” tiles. Each tile intricately depicts life in the region back in the early 1900s. [📸: @travelforpun] Perfect spot. Tag someone yuo would like to take to this magical place!
Sometimes lounging by a pool with a book is the answer. Lust over 200 of the most beautifully designed pools, from glimmering infinity pools to lush garden pools, in "Splash: The Art of the Swimming Pool" by @anniehkelly and @timstreetporter. Poolside reading at its finest. 💦
