Pure, vibrant, and exotic, Bali pulses with sensations that light your spirit on fire: incense on every street; the sizzling sound of rain down pouring onto pavement; the celebration of the sacred. When I was there, I could spend the whole day wandering from one organic café to the next sampling different coconut-based elixirs and just watching the clouds pass over as I waited for sunset.
If the winter has you down, why not spend some time this season fantasizing about an island paradise? You could even start planning your trip for next year. It’s currently rainy season in Bali, which only lasts until March, making now the best time to lock in those tickets and start travel planning.
Here are some dreamy island shots to get you inspired, or at least help you daydream as you while away the snow.
