A full week has passed since I’ve reflected on my first taste of Indo, and I’m still trying to catch my breath. I’ve been staying in a really cute surfing village called Bingin, which is located on Bali’s southern tip, the Bukit Peninsula.
Here’s a breakdown of my first week in Bali
Friday 9/17: I arrived in Denpasar a little past noon, promptly picked up my motorbike at the airport and found my way Bingin. I remembered this part of the island to be really laid back yet developing exponentially, and while it’s developing for sure, it is unfortunately no longer as laid back. Bali is no longer a secret. The surf breaks are often crowded and the cost of travel has doubled within the 3 years I’ve been away. Regardless, Bali is a very special and beautiful place, and I feel fortunate to be back. My first task was to find the Alamanda Villa, where my friend Nate stores his boards, which he is letting me borrow during my stay. I found it with not too much trouble, and the caretaker, Wayan Riana, is one of the sweetest ladies I’ve met. I surfed out at Bingin that afternoon, and later in the evening, I had dinner with an Australian couple that was also staying at Alamanda, Rob and Alicia. Rob was kind enough to invite me go surfing with he and his buddies the next morning, so I went to bed early.

Arequipa itself is a very large tourist hub in the southern high plains for trekkers and adventure travelers. After a nap and a late breakfast, we walked the crowded streets trying to get a sense of the place.
Pisco unfortunately lives up to its reputation as "The Armpit of Peru."
Who knew sand dunes could be so much fun? I'm in sunny Huacachina and the electricity has been out all day. It's the perfect time to catch up on work and relax. I left San Bartolo yesterday and I finally felt like my usual traveler self, busing it to Ica
