These days, travel is so focused on ticking off the ‘must see’ spots, which clog up every traveller’s social media feed that the real gems of a country are left hidden.
If you’ve been to Thailand but haven’t experienced the Full Moon Party, many travellers will be shocked that you missed out on such an ‘unmissable experience’. In reality, you missed out on rubbing up against a sweaty Brit abroad in a wife beater and the chance to get burnt alive by a dodgy firework.
To my dearest friends, family and fellow culture cravers,
This week we’ve been living it up on the islands of Nusa Lembongan and Gili T just off of Bali.
However, before we caught our first boat to begin island life, we decided to have a Bintang-fueled (gin for Nicole) night out in Canggu – it was Friday, after all. After a few drinks at a beach bar on Old Man’s beach, we followed the crowds to the ‘next bar’.
Here, we were greeted by the beach, a DJ and a pop up bar. We were in our element. The music was on point and we danced the night away until there was no one else left on the beach but ourselves and our new Indonesian pals.
