We had this Bali Trip last May 2018, we were thinking of the movie Eat, Pray and Love and the adventure of the actress, Julia Robert as Elizabeth Gilbert.
To lose balance sometimes for love is part of living a balanced life.”Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman’s Search for Everything
She says also:
“Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.”
― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
This is why we travel in this place, we want to feel the happiness that the character feels, away from a busy life even for days. And to know how their culture and how it can motivate one person to be happy. We experienced the beauty of nature from the rice fields, the falls and their beaches. We enjoyed their spicy food and crackers. We really love this place.
