I am possibly the only travelling Australian, that has never been to Bali.
I will start by stating that I am possibly the only travelling Australian that has never been to Bali. Flying to Denpasar and transferring to Kuta when I know that it is full of Australians, never appealed to me when I was younger.
Travel to Bali is a right of passage for Aussies aged between 18-25, and in hindsight, I am honestly pleased to say I missed that boat. However, now that I have 23 countries under my belt and I found cheap return airfare, it's time to add to the list and explore a bit of Indonesia: Bali, Lombok, and Java, before heading to Sabah, Malaysian Borneo to tick off some items on my bucket list.
After all the warnings I received from friends to not stay in Kuta because of the, quote "drunk, bogan Aussies", Kuta was, of course, the first place I booked. To be technical, I will be a drunk Aussie (at least for the Kuta leg of the trip). I decided to skip on a backpacker hostel and book a guesthouse with a plunge pool (the guesthouse was randomly cheaper), so people, no matter where their location, or how intoxicated they are (to a degree), seems like an okay option for this solo traveller right now.
Let's hope I haven't just jinxed myself!
Up, up and away... ?✈️
