I just came back from the most amazing 10 days in Bali (11th to 20th April 2017), where I visited for a retreat with Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and then after for some work related to Yogi Warrior Tribe. I am sharing a few memories for you to enjoy and experience your own moments of calm and inner peace!
Sit back, relax and enjoy my guided tour of the real everyday Bali life:)

Random Thoughts On Bali
The people of Bali have got to be the nicest people in the world. Everyone is so polite, soft-mannered, respectful and always smiling. I have never seen so many happy faces. Spirituality is such a huge part of the culture here. Temples and deity statues adorn every corner of this place. People are always praying and finding true inner peace on these isles. Even the sea is just so peaceful.
There are no such things as strangers in Bali, everyone is just so open, gentle and loving. The women talk with their eyes here, it’s fascinating to see how their eyes move with the flow of their talks. It’s like every word is an artistic performance.
I had a guy riding his bike and I was blocking his path… rather than asking me to move, he just started singing. I turned to see what was going on and realised I was in his way and so stepped aside. He thanked me and rode away continuing to sing.
People are so content and happy from within. I have not come across a single argument, anger or rude word from any of the locals. They operate with so much class.
Bali truly does replenish the soul and continuously reminds you of just how wonderful life can really be. Hope you are getting a taste of it through this post!

Random Thoughts When Leaving Bali
OK, the happiness levels in Bali are getting insane now, the taxi driver drops me off at the airport then as I walk in the terminal, I hear this furious horning from a car. I turn around to think who is this. Turns out being the taxi driver wanting to wave and say goodbye again!
Then go through check-in, and the airport official starts singing to me a traditional Bali song with a big smile, whilst going through my passport!
Now at the departure lounge and went through a wrong door and a security guy comes up to me, apologises for interrupting me and then directs me the right way, saying namaste about 50 times with palms folded for making me go the right way!
Better not get too used to all this, will be back in London in a few hours.
People are so sweet and heartfelt here, hope you are getting a feel for it to through this post!
Sending all my blessings,
