How did you end up in Bali Halo Bule?
Travel has been engraved in me from a very young age, so if I’m not on a trip then I’m either talking about one or dreaming of the next. Traveling has always been my probiotic, my go-to for a mental and spiritual cleanse. With my sell hard and travel far mentality, it was just a matter of time before I came to Bali.
Did it take some time to adjust to life on the island?
Bali is a lot different than other places I’ve visited in SE Asia. I was always asking a lot of questions or searching for answers online either out of curiosity or necessity. When i doubt, it’s best to seek advice from other ex-pats that have lived on the Island much longer than you before making any major decisions. Although I’ve lived here for almost 3 years, I am always learning something new. I’ve completely minimized and simplified my life here.
Is there anything that’s especially difficult?
Being distant from the ones you love is the single hardest part about being here. Finding work in Bali has been the most difficult 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. It’s definitely a challenge. 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.
