About Halo Bule
Born and raised in California with extensive experience with earthquakes, burritos, In-N-Out, and avoiding traffic like the plague. I love everything about the ocean, mountains, and land we use as our playground.
How did you end up in Bali Gerald?
Travel has been engraved in me from a very young age, passed on through parental traits and genetic organisms.
So if I’m not on a trip, then I’m either talking about one or dreaming of the next.
Traveling in a way has always been my probiotic, my go-to for mental and spiritual cleansing.
With my sell hard and travel far mentality, it was just a matter of time before Bali found me.
Is there anything that’s especially difficult?
Being distant from the ones you love is the single hardest part about being here. Also, finding work in Bali has also been challenging. But in a way, it’s a blessing in disguise. I’ve had time to learn a lot of new skills which in return helped me land different gigs online.
In the last 3 years, I’ve learned website design, SEO, marketing, become a better writer and now I’m trying to harness my sales skills by becoming a copywriter.
Do you have any advice for someone who wants to move to Bali?
Experience the island for a significant period of time. See if it speaks to you. Visit both the mountains and the sea, as they have very different vibes. If when you get back home, and you find the urge to come back too strong to ignore, you’ll then know the island of the Gods have chosen you.
Did it take some time to adjust to life on the island?
Bali is quite unique compared to other places I’ve visited in SE Asia. Everything is laid back, and I never feel like I have to look over my shoulder.
I felt pretty comfortable right away, it’s easy when locals are genuinely friendly and open. I’m curious by nature, so I am always exploring, learning etiquette, and adapting. It’s been an awesome journey.
Although I’ve completely minimized and simplified my life here over the last few years, I still learn something new every day. When in doubt, it’s best to seek advice from seasoned ex-pats before making any major decisions.

The start of the new year in 2020 was supposed to mark a new beginning. We would adopt a healthier lifestyle and leave behind our toxic ways.

Yes, it’s time to move on and Bali is one of those places that provides a naturual solution to a sedentary and urbanized lifestyle.
Bali’s natural landscapes, temples, cultural attractions, and organizations all play a vital role in much-needed engagement, innovation, creativity, and emotional, intellectual, physical, and social well-being we lacked in our lives.
