    Bali Temples Guide: Everything You Need to Know + The Best Temples to Visit

    Bali is often called “The Island of the Gods” – and for good reason. As the only Hindu-majority island in Indonesia, it’s a unique place all its own.

    Total Bali Food Tour with Urban Adventures Review

    Disclaimer: I was a guest of Urban Adventures on their Total Bali Food Tour. All opinions, as always, are my own. Lush green rice terraces, hipster cafes, Instagram swings, and great spas… that’s what you think of when you think of Bali, right? I did, too, until I actually got there. Bali is so much more than what you see on Instagram, and the Total Bali Food Tour that I took with Urban Adventures really showed me that. Yes, there are rice terraces, cafes, and the rest. But there’s also a vibrant local life that continues on right under our noses. People actually harvesting the rice from those terraces. Rich…
