    Om Swastyastu

    Om Swastyastu Om Swastyastu: Okay I have been in Bali on and off for a year now and I have managed to pick and say a few words but really it’s about time I had some lessons. So this week I have plunged myself into learning some useful words a week. To make things a little harder we are learning Balinese as opposed to Indonesia Bahasa. Well, we spend most of our time in Bali, so why not? The added bonus is we get to learn more about the culture of Bali. Now some people have said don’t’ do it, it’s too complicated. There are 3 levels of speaking to people but…

    House sitting around the world

    House sitting around the world Why not dog, cat or house sit? It is great to care for animals and live in a home.  I left the UK back in October 2016 in search of a new life.  Although I feel very much at home in Bali,  it’s where I have been spending most of my time, I must say it’s really nice to experience a real home environment and be part of a wider community of people. Doing a bit of housesitting  you get to meet new people, and you don’t have to feel like you are a perennial tourist. Being a  dog walker or caring for a cat…

    Ubud Readers and Writers Festival 2017

    Ubud Writers And Readers Festival 2017 Ubud Writers and Readers Festival 2017, Bali, Indonesia: Reflecting on my time spent in Bali this year one of the most memorable times was attending Ubud Writers and Readers Festival.  I felt so inspired by the 4 days of interesting talks and finding out about so many books I would like to read. My days were action packed and started at 9 am and by 5 pm I was happily exhausted by all the discussions and presentations that I had attended. I continued into the evening on a few occasions too! We had amazingly hot weather and no rain! There was so much packed into the…

    The Power of Sound Healing

    The Power of Sound Healing We all know the power of sound, whether it’s through our favourite song or band we love to listen to; we are temporarily transported to another place, time and feel the joy the music creates within us. Most of us can remember where we were what we were doing and with whom when we hear a particular song. Music and sound have a powerful element within our subconscious. The power of sound through music transforms our mood and gets us to get up and dance and feel the joy of life, so it probably comes as no surprise that sound is extremely healing. Sound Healing…

    Postcards from Bali

    Postcards from Bali  – 2017 I have been in Bali, Indonesia since March 2017, with a trip to Sydney in between. These are a few postcards I have created from my travels. You can read about my time in Sydney or in Bali.  I am on a journey to find a new life and a new home, and I have no idea where this will be.

    Finding what you want in your life

    Finding what you want in your life Finding what you want in life. I have never really known what I wanted to do in my life. Not having had a clear direction or a really strong passion to follow has meant that I have fallen into a variety of careers. It has made me try out new areas I would never have imagined and I have often changed jobs in between traveling and trying to live abroad. I am once again at a new crossroads in my life where I would like to learn some new skills and utilize the ones I have. Ask yourself the question if you could…

    It’s all about Dogs

    It’s all about Dogs Connection, Compassion, and Companionship  For the moment I am happily settled in Ubud. Although I absolutely love dogs, this particular long-term dog sit I was offered didn’t quite work out for me in the end. The universe realised I needed my freedom and it signalled it through my body… so the choice was pain or let go! I choose to let go of a commitment instead of feeling the pain, a no-brainer but in the past, I would have just done it anyway! So a bit of bravery on my part to make a sudden change and throw my current plans in the air. In life,…

    Finding home

    Finding home… Currently living in Ubud, Bali, Indonesia Finding Home: It’s nearly a year since I left the UK in search of a place to call home. What actually is a home? Is it a place, or the people that reside it in. I guess I was thinking that it would be a place, as I have only myself to live in the home. Without going in to any unnecessary detail I have suddenly found myself, single again and in search of a new country and place to call home. For now I have found myself unexpectedly and happily living in Ubud, Bali, a place where I feel a sense of…
