Nusa Lembongan Instagram Diary

1/  2/ Ferry ride from Bali mainland to Nusa Lembongan  3,4/ Crystal clear waters and volcano in the distance  5,15/ Villa Bukit  6/ Packing lightly (Supermuse dress, Lover bikini, Samudra clutch, Karen Walker sunglasses, House of Holland sunglasses)  7,8&9/ About to dive in to the big blue (wearing ASOS bikini top and bottoms, Jennifer Zeuner necklace)  10/ Two local boys admiring the view from their backyard  11/ Buggy rides (ASOS overalls, Samudra clutch, Karen Walker sunglasses, market hat)  12,13/ Motorbike rides  14/ Overlooking the port (wearing Supermuse dress, Karen Walker sunglasses, See by Chloe sandals, Samudra clutch)  16,17/ Sunset from dinner at Indiana Kenanga  18,19/ Bali mainland bound

Thanks to a last minute invitation to stay at a friends new villa on the island of Nusa Lembongan, my family and I packed our super light backpacks and had a spontaneous family adventure. We caught the ferry for $50 return from mainland Bali to Nusa Lembognan, not having researched where we were heading at all. The villa itself was incredible, nestled amongst the trees on top of the mountain with views out over the sea towards Bali’s volcano’s.  With barely any time there we still managed to not only relax, but also see a traditional Balinese funeral and cremation, the crystal clear waters while snorkelling from a boat, and getting around on bikes without feeling unsafe. I had originally planned to try and see the Gili islands this visit to Bali, but a change of plans made an unexpected discovery of this paradise.

    I was first obsessed with Bali after seeing Eat, Pray, Love. But I must say, seeing a place through your eyes, so to speak, is even better than a movie. And your vacation wardrobe is so inspiring! Can’t wait to go on my trek across Europe and put to work all the ideas I’ve picked up from your blog!!! XOXO

    I have been to Nusa Lembongan but didnt have time to stay there. But it’s absolutely gorgeous! I love how secluded the island is. You should go to Gili’s next time, I’ve been to Gili Trawangan too, the beach is simply amazing, with cafes, boutique along the beach! Dying to see other Gilis.

  • Michelle

    I adore your travel posts, and how you are so lucky to make your wanderlust a tangible, viable part of your life.

    It is such an inspiration for young girls like me, I can only dream that one day I can travel and see as much of the world as you have!

    Indonesia is my country!! You should come again to Bali and if you come to Indonesia you shoul visit Raja Ampat island in Papua. Raja ampat is the most exotic and relaxing place in indonesia after bali!!:D

  • Teagan

    I have just recently found your blog, but have instantly fallen in love with it! I look at it as often as my tumblr account! Your style, the things you do are so inspiring!
    You are so lucky to live the life you do.. I am aiming to do some what of the same.

    I am heading to Bali in two short weeks, so any tips would be great? What to take, wear, be careful of?
