Bali has always been a dream of mine ever since I got hooked on Wanderlust Yoga Retreats. I pictured sun salutations on a beautiful white sand beach, Acai Bowls and fit amazing looking people with positive vibes.
Although all of those things are available in magnitudes, they are a bit harder to find. Many of the beaches are sadly full of garbage and the bustling traffic jams make Namaste a bit harder to get to.
This made me reflect a lot about expectations vs. reality and making sure that I am doing my part at leaving every place a bit better than I found it. Although I can’t clean up all the trash on the beach, I did clean up what was around me.
I felt an extreme love/hate relationship with Bali but I know I will give it a second chance. A spiritual Bali retreat is in my very near future. See you next time Bali!
It is very sad that garbage is still being dumped in the oceans by ships as if it will just disappear
