Agung, we met again! I did not think I will climb it again. Last year’s climb was amazing, an unforgettable experience, but it also was the toughest and physically most exhausting thing I have ever done! This time, when I came back to Bali and saw the peak of Mount Agung appearing above the clouds, I knew I want to climb it again. This time I wanted to get to the highest point of Bali, 3142m above the see level with 360 degrees panoramic view of the island. 19 hours at the volcano, 30 hours without sleep, amazing sunrise at the highest point of Bali, cold wind and a steep way down. Yes, I climbed Mount Agung for the second time and I loved it.

Bali – the island of more than 10.000 different temples. Several of its ancient temples became Bali’s most iconic landmarks and are worth the drive through Bali’s busy traffic. If you are planning your trip to Bali, you definitely need to visit more than just a few of those amazing temples. Bali’s temples are called Pura, which came from the Sanskrit word ‘puri’, and it means ‘palace’ or ‘city’. Each of these temple is unique in its own way: some are very popular and thus overcrowded; some are less known but they do not lack in beauty or of interest. Read More →
I love Melbourne! I love this city for its cute houses in Victorian style, combined with modern designed buildings. I love Melbourne for the easiness to get around, the calm atmosphere, where you do not feel to be in a big city. I love Melbourne for its incredible cafes, where each place deserves to be at the top of the ‘best interior designed cafes’ list. I love Melbourne for its amazing food culture and meal presentation and always an option for healthy diets (vegan, gluten free, soya/almond milk, etc.). Read More →
The process to get Indonesian visa for 60-day is very easy and straight forward. I’ve done it last year in Johor Bahru, Malaysian city near the boarder with Singapore. This year, due to my luck of attention to details and forgetting to count the days between my flights, I had to get 60-days visa again. I have heard that Indonesian embassies in bigger cities, like Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok or Singapore do not issue 2-month visa. It was very easy to get one in Johor Bahru, besides the fact that I felt very uncomfortable and unwelcome in that city. So here are some notes on how to get 60-days Indonesian visa in George Town, Penang. Read More →
Grampians national park is a famous destination for exploring nature around Melbourne. In the beginning of January, me, my mom and two of my friends rented a car (check my other blog post for car rental details) and drove off for a two-day adventure to Grampians. I was the only driver, apart from the 3 hours when a friend of mine took over the wheel. I must say, it is quite easy to drive in Australia! Read More →

So here it is, for those who want to see something interesting and not to get stuck only in Kuta ;) Read More →
I believe photos tell much more than words… Here are my photo impression from one day on the Philip Island. Truly amazing and beautiful place, and so peaceful. It is not touristically overcrowded and one can enjoy quiet beach and relaxing sound of the ocean. It is just 1,5 hour drive from Melbourne but it feels like a different planet. Am I crazy to want to go back there again?! Read More →
