WANDER DIARIES – BALI II

This time of the year is cool and breezy here. Straight out of the window are swaying trees and right off the roads is the heaving sea.

Choppy waters sometimes though with a warning flag. But, who can stop the Aussie surfers who are here to spot the right wave as it got extremely cold down under.

The Purple Frog at one such exciting moment sprained its back. The hip got hurt during a hop and now, it’s restricted to the hole hoping to heal soon.

Water Therapy

Turned to the healing touch of water. Stepped inside the pool and it definitely soothed the nerves.

Making space for waterness in wilderness

That said, a well-maintained pool is a regular feature of the homes/villas in Bali. Wonder, why has that not been a part of home culture across the world especially cities that don’t have a personal water body to take a dip in…

But then, all good things sound utopian to the world and all things dirty, crammed and deprived ‘real’…

Art has a special place here and that’s why The Purple Frog thinks, the maker’s attitude prevails…possibility of creating what sounds utopian…

While the rains are upon us here and that’s when The Purple Frog would get to hop around the city, here’s a glimpse of what caught the eye…

Watch this space for more updates…next, it would be the food adventures here. Keeping the belly full but not bloated and the taste buds satisfied is also proving to be a big player in wander adventures…

Wander Diaries – Bali

Early this year, around February, 2019

The Purple Frog hopped on a flight to Bali, an Indonesian haven loved alike by the west and the east, the Oceanian and the Middle Eastern. 

Minutes after landing there, the brightness, the life and that Bali charm started to take over the senses. As The Purple Frog moved closer into the city, it was immersed in it all and any knowledge of where it came from gave way to this is where it must belong…

It was then that The Purple Frog left as an impressed traveller and it is now, it is living here like a global citizen…With a dream that someday, some generation would say…What borders? Safety, huh? Our planet, our people…

But till then…

This time around, July onward, 2019

It’s different. It’s longer. It’s AIRBnB. It’s #FOMOrelieved.

A sense of the place with abundant time in hand…feeling the place like it’s a part of the big planet and not just a nation.

Basically, the experience feels WHOLESOME, just like that first big, fuller bite of a juicy burger on a super-empty stomach after a long night of drinking…

Sticking to the plan of staying creative, imaginative and definitely observant of the works of MAKERS around…

Watch this space for more updates from Wander Diaries that will be a regular feature here @ The Purple Frog.

This month it will be all about and from Bali…
