About Gerald

In 2017 I sold everything, left my “real person” job, and decided to travel the world indefinitely while making my base and new life in Bali. After fitting my life’s possessions into two suitcases and arriving at Ngurah Rai International Airport, I immediately fell in love with  both the magic and the madness of this beautiful island.  Bali chose me, and I have never looked back.

Hello, I’m Gerald Winik, an American ex-pat who finds creative ways to feed an incurable wanderlust and obsessive adrenaline disorder. Traveling around the planet has proved to be my probiotic while gaining a deeper sense of cultural awareness, reconnecting to humanity, and jump-starting my creativity. As a result, I created Halo Bule, a site with zero hype, zero jargon, and zero fluff. Just down-to-earth, concise, honest, facts about Bali.
I’m always on the hunt for places often overlooked by Western tourists here in Bali, Indonesia’s archipelago and any other countries my own government urges me to avoid. As my travels have evolved, so has this site.
Halo Bule remains, most of all, a place to share my stories and experiences. I hope you enjoy it!

Halo Bule is a community of everyday people who have fallen for the magic and the madness of this beautiful island Bali. Always continuing to find ways to protect and give back to our playground - the mountains, ocean, waves, beaches, and people that provide us so much enjoyment.
