“The whole April I spent in Bali, successfully combining vacation with work. Having visited the greatest regions, I stayed in Bukit, preferring its most beautiful beaches and biggest waves to other attractions, such as the most diverse food in Jimbaran, the loudest parties in Kuta, and the most artistic people in Ubud. By the way, while living in Bali you start to like spicy food, whether you want it or not. Firstly, in order of disinfection, and secondly, whereas it’s so hot inside, it’s not that hot outside : )
I learned to respect the Balinese traditions and praying three times per day; even a taxi driver has its own altar with all the frankincense. But what I refuse to accept is a terrifying uncontrolled traffic and a constant mess.
About working from there, I liked the six-hour difference indeed! When I’ve woken up there, Germany has just fallen asleep. I enjoyed my time and afterward got back to work. Unlike office breaks, I swam or mediated, what was definitely better than coffee or cigarette. If I felt hungry, I could just pick a dragon fruit from the tree above my head. Now I am happy to say, that very soon I come back to Bali to spent the whole autumn-winter period there and experience this wonderful time again!”
