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!
