I’m back in Bali and I’m here to stay

One and a half years ago, I decided that I will give up my clothing business and start doing something that I am really passionate about.

My passions are: Travelling, Yoga and Photography. It took me some good years to figure this out. It’s not so simple to know what you really like to do in life.

After that part, I started this blog. It felt right. I knew that I wanted eventually to be able to travel through this way, but I had no immediate expectations. I’ve travelled in 23 countries before starting the travel blog, but when I did, I also took a trip with my friends in Bali and Singapore. That holiday was two weeks long and it just opened my appetite for blogging and travel photography.



This happened in September 2014. Now, in October 2015 I am back in Bali and I’m here to stay for at least one month. Why? Because this past year, life has been wonderful, in just 13 months I’ve travelled in 5 exotic destinations, I’ve spent one month in an amazing place in The Bahamas where I also got my Yoga Instructor certification and I became a certified photographer.


Now I am back in Bali and I realise the amazing things that have happened and that have connected throughout the year. And why ? Because I found my way, a way that I am so at ease and happy with, that the Universe can arrange everything in order for me to materialise my goals and dreams.


I chose to come back here because, this time, I want to be able to feel that true Bali vibe, the dreamers life, the one who comes here from the desire to find something authentic, spiritual, and maybe an opportunity for an ideal life. And the best part is, that I get to share this with my mother. I am blessed that we share the same ideals.

Don’t get me wrong, I just bought the plane ticket with the return date at the end on next month, and the first 4 nights of accommodation. What’s next? I don’t really know. . . I will meet beautiful people, I will explore and photograph amazing locations I will teach and take classes of yoga, and I will especially, let everything flow. I don’t want to sound like a cliche but from my point of view, it’s an Eat Pray Love travelling experience 😛

1’st stop: Seminyak



I’m usually extra organised, I know every step, every activity weeks before a trip. But this time it’s something different, it’s not a holiday, it’s a trial of an ideal.

Maybe I won’t even go back home at the end of this month, who knows?! I would love to become a Bali expat 🙂

So, wish me good luck and I will keep you in touch with my experiences in the Island of Gods.


Dear Bali, what do you have in mind for us?

my exotic dream

I believe in a perfect life, a magical life, searching and finding beauty and energy in everything around

    Bună Maria, interesant blogul tau mai ales pentru cei pasionați de călătorii ,asa cum sunt si eu.În perioada 20 -29 Noiembrie se pare ca voi merge in Bali ,inițial destinația era Koh Samui dar prognoza meteo pt. Thailanda este rea si am optat pentru Bali. Daca este posibil si nu cer prea mult as vrea niste sfaturi . Suntem 2 familii , mergem fara copii si aș opta pentru o vacanța activa in care să vizitam cât mai multe locuri interesante.

      Buna Florin, ma bucur ca iti place blogul meu si ma bucur ca ai ales ca si destinatie Bali. Ieri a plouat si aici pentru prima oara dupa 7 luni dar nu cred ca trebuie sa va speriati:) O sa fie totul mai verde si mai fresh atunci cand veniti voi. Am scris mai demult un articol despre topul activitatilor din Bali, dupa parerea mea si dupa un intens research pe Google.http://myexoticdream.net/top-things-to-do-in-bali/

      V-ati luat deja cazare? Ar trebui sa va impartiti sederea in mai multe parti, macar doua. In partea de S-V veti gasi plaje, surf, statiuni mai aglomerate dar si distractive. Inspre centru, in Ubud, incepe sa fie adevaratul Bali. Aici veti gasi muuulte activitati cum ar fi rafting, vizite la temple, orezarii, arta, etc. De aici, este si destul de usor de ajuns inspre partea de Nord, in care puteti urca pe vulcanul Mt Batur sau puteti vizita zona Kintamani care am inteles ca este superba. De asemenea poate va tenteaza si Gili ISalnd pentru o noapte sau doua. Imi poti trimite te rog un email in care sa imi spui pe scurt ce cautati cel mai mult in aceasta vacanta? Plaja, Vizitat, Activitati mai sportive, Autenticitate, etc. Iti voi raspunde mai la obiect:)
