When we are a little stressed or tired we all just close our eyes and imagine to be hearing the sound of the waves, our feet in the warm sand, enjoying the view of a landscape full of bamboo huts and palm trees. Well.. when I opened my eyes this morning, I wasn’t dreaming.. it was real. Welcome to Bali.
Its a hot morning, and I am full of excitement wanting to go explore this beautiful place named Canggu. However, only after a few minutes of walking I get distracted by a cafe named Shady Shack who seem to be serving the most colourful plates I have ever seen. I can’t help but make a stop! And I am so happy we did.. it’s breakfast heaven.
Fresh coconuts, opened with a large knife right in front of your eyes and served with just a straw. A delicious cappuccino with coconut milk. And smoothy bowls topped with fresh fruit and granola, which are out of this world. Its not only the colours that are vibrant, the flavours are too. The fruit explodes with flavour, its sweet and fresh. The coffee is creamy and delicious. Its the ultimate breakfast. The perfect start to a day beautiful day!
After a good breakfast we continued walking through the beautiful streets of Canggu. You can hear banana trees rustling in the wind as you walk passed shops and cafes. Until we reached the end of the street and found ourselves with our feet in the sand. As I walked towards the sea I could see people riding the waves. One by one, some would fall, but then get back up and try again, over and over again. You may need some dedication, but once you stand, and ride along the waves, you feel like you have concurred the world.
This is my first day in Bali, but definitely will not be my last. In fact, I have many more stories, adventures, and tips about this magical place for you guys in the future as I will be living here for a while! I have officially moved to Bali! And boy do I feel lucky! X
