Mt Agung, Bali

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.

Must see temples in Bali

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 →

Agung Volcano in Bali

I climbed the highest volcano in Bali and 4th highest in Indonesia! It was long, tought and unbelievably cool: we spent 12 hours at the Mount Agung (from the start until the finish), slept under the sky full of stars, climbed extremely steep cliff (at some places 45 degrees) and observed incredible sunrise from the summit of 3000m. It was he most  physically difficult, but most incredible, thing I have ever done so far! When other tourists had left the summit and we stayed alone, I screamed from happiness! Read More →

Bali beach

Few days ago a friend of mine showed me one absolutely amazing place here in Bali. I thought I saw it all, but this place was totally new and totally blew up my mind. One can only get there at the very low tide and stay there only during the lowest tide. It basically means, just one hour in the morning and one hour in the evening (this was the case which tide levels in June 2015). Read More →

1. People
It is a common thing to think that people in Southeast Asia are friendly. I cannot agree more. So when I think about Indonesia, I only remember incredibly friendly people, their sincere smiles (especially those I experienced in Java), hospitality and readiness to help and show the way. Read More →
