Escape to Bali
Bali is that one place I keep returning to and, I think it's a place to visit for any curious nomad.
Uluwatu, Ubud, and Canggu are my favorite areas. Sari Organik in Ubud is a must see cafe in the middle of rice fields. Most people speak English and it makes things easy to get by and as a solo traveler. I felt completely safe at all times. I did arrive with friends, but when they left, I had one week all to myself. So the exploration began. In terms of animals and sanctuaries, there is the Bali Halfway Dog House and I made sure to stay away from all the stalls selling monkeys and tours for elephant rides. Culturally, the people waltz into your presence with smiles and light-toned voices, appearing very gentle. It's one destination that stays on the list.
