I’d been wanting to visit the Gili Islands for YEARS (like, over a decade) before I finally made it over there on my recent trip to Bali in December 2023.

In my mind, I was absolutely certain that Gili Air was my island; after all, it’s known as the “chill” island, or the *just right* option between Gili Trawangan (the “party” island) and Gili Meno (the “honeymoon” island).


One thing you quickly learn when traveling around third world countries is that they play by an entirely different set of rules than what you’re used to. Routine motions like going from A to B or making simple transactions can be frustrating enough to make you want to punch a durian.

Annual Recap

2015 was such an incredible year. I spent the entirety of it in Australia, save for a 3-week jaunt to Indonesia. It was a beautiful blend of routine and adventure that saw me settling down anywhere from a few days to a few months at a time, exploring my surroundings and then going on roadtrips and excursions in-between.
