Last month when I was in Bali, I stayed at the beautiful Anantara Resort in Uluwatu. This resort had the most beautiful entrance and I just had to take some photos there. It seemed like the perfect location to shoot wedding photos, the giant stairs and huge pots of beautiful colorful flowers looked stunning! It was quite hot during the day but it was definitely worth the photos.
I fell in love with this part of Bali, it’s so much more quiet and peaceful compared to the busy streets of Ubud and Seminyak. I’ve never been to Lombok (an island next to Bali) but judging by the pictures and videos I’ve seen, Uluwatu reminds me a lot of it. The empty beaches, high cliffs and huge waves were the perfect scenery to end my trip.
As much as I love living in the UAE, summers here are unbearable! The heat & humidity are on a next level, being outside is unbearable, the ocean water is hot the only thing left to do is going to the malls. I’m trying to spend as much time outdoors even though it’s challenging because I don’t want to spend the entire summer breathing AC air, day in, day out 🙁
Last month I traveled to Bali for the first time and I had an amazing time! I traveled to different places within the island but my first stop was in Ubud. This area of Bali is known for its greenery and huge rice fields. The hotel I stayed at in Ubud was the Chedi Club Tanah Gajah. This property was built by a well respected Indonesian architect and art collector: “Hendra Hadiprana”. It once used to be his private residence but a few years ago he turned it into a resort and it has the most authentic Indonesian atmosphere you’ll ever find.
Living a plant based lifestyle in the UAE can be very challenging. Eating out has stopped being an option for me because its not as enjoyable anymore (since the only option I have is eating sides or a salad). Before I traveled to Bali, I heard so many positive things about the vegan & vegetarian spots there. I ate my way throughout the entire trip! The type of vegan food you’ll find there is unheard of here. From burgers, hot dogs to kebabs and so many desserts.
I’ve got so many photos from my recent trip to Amsterdam and I wanted to share them with you. This is the last post of AMS, I promise! I was so lucky to experience sunny weather was great while I was there. It’s usually very unpredictable, especially during April & May.
One of the highlights during my recent trip to Amsterdam was the yoga class with a stunning view of the city. I’m not really a yoga type because I’m so unbalanced however, it felt good stretching in the morning – especially with a view like this.
Last month I was invited to Amsterdam by Rituals Cosmetics which is a brand that I’ve been using since I was a teenager. When I found out last year that they were finally launching in Dubai I literally screamed of excitement. I had the privilege of learning more about the brand, experience the brand from the core and its birth place which is: Amsterdam. Along with learning more about their products, we did some cool activities too.
During our recent trip to Turkey with Turkish Airlines, one of the places we traveled to was Bodrum. It was my first time in Bodrum and it exceeded my expectations. I always thought of it as very touristy and commercial. I enjoyed every single moment in Bodrum and I wish we had stayed longer. It’s so beautiful, there’s a lot to do & see, the food is amazing and the people were super friendly. The coastline of Bodrum is stunning, we were there during low season so luckily it wasn’t too crowded.
If you love to be surrounded by nature than you’re probably going to love this area. One of the many places we’ve explored during our trip with Turkish Airlines is the waterfall in the province Mugla. The Turgut Selalesi natural waterfall is located in a small in a village on top of the mountains in Marmaris. Besides the waterfalls, this area is also known for the amazing fish restaurants.
