It was generically reading Eat, Pray, Love six years ago because everyone else was doing it that made me want to go to Bali in the first place. So, when I finally got around to doing so, and found out that tourists are able to go and see the actual son of the medicine man from the book, I obviously jumped on board.
In a couple of months I’ll be heading out to South East Asia to go backpacking around Bali and Thailand. It’ll basically be like a “gap yaaah” that’s condensed into three-and-a-half weeks and two countries. When I booked the flights in November it seemed like I had ages to go, but, time being what it is, it’s come around in the blink of an eye.
