Looking Back On Bali: Volcanic Lunch Dates & Sea Turtles

My trip to Bali wouldn't have been complete without a visit to Kintamani for lunch on the side of the cliff overlooking the Batur Lake and it's ginormous active volcano. The view was quite breathtaking and it took me a little while to actually realize that holy moley this is a volcano guys!!!

After lunch I set off on a very bumpy car ride through hills and hills of volcanic rocks and arrived at the natural hot springs for a bit of relaxation time. I must admit I was a little disheartened when I saw that the hot springs were not so "natural" after all. To me they just looked like a fancy outdoor spa. But once I got in and felt the warmth I let go of all that negativity and just sat in awe of the fact that the water around us was being naturally heated to 48 degrees!!! 

Another fantastic part of my Bali adventures was our trip to Turtle Island in Nusa Dua. I took a glass bottom boat to get there, but funnily enough I was gazing at the sights above the water. Once I got to the Island we we're greeted by a very funny Balinese man. He showed me around and talked about the different types of turtles, as well as their ages. The big one is Julia Gillard and she was 75 years old! I guess they just make up the name depending upon what nationality the visitor is, because the real Julia isn't even that old. Again, being super obsessed with animals, I loved every minute of it.

Writing these holiday posts has made me quite sad that I've been home almost a week now. Ahhhh reality, how I loathe the.


  1. teehee turtle! Amazing snaps makes me wana run off on a holiday with my bf now !~

  2. hooray for sea turtles! based on your experience will you take a glass bottom boat ride again? were the not so natural hot springs smelly? seems like all the ones i've ever been to stink like sulfur.

  3. Such a beautiful view! Those turtles are adorable :) My step-dad use to pick up turtles that were caught in middle of the road usually due to a storm. I always got stuck in the back seat with them lol.
