We are currently in Canggu, Bali at the surf and yoga retreat called Pelan Pelan. After spending 2 weeks here (only 5 days left) we will go to Ubud on Saturday for the first retreat of the year with Allison Rivers Samson. It is so incredibly beautiful here in Canggu. A little surfer town with tons of healthy, vegan food options, we highly recommend you stay here when you come to Bali.
Christy is documenting her travels through her Instagram and YouTube channel. On this blog we will share our best travel tips and where you can find the most amazing vegan food in the locations that we visit. If you haven’t already signed up for our email list, you’ll get our Ultimate Packing List for fit chicks and dudes to help you stay in tip top shape while you travel.
The internet here is never 100% and you never know when the power will go down so we are trying our best to stay in touch and get new content out to you. For instance, I can’t get any photos to upload to this post though I’ve been trying all morning! Bali tests our patience like no other place in the world. You have to go with the flow or you’ll just be miserable. And you have to show some gratitude for all the beauty that surrounds you.
When you come to Bali there are many different types of places you can stay. If you are into the beach, want to learn to surf, have many yoga classes at your fingertips, and be spoiled by all the amazing coffee and vegan food, Canggu is where it’s at. The town is filled with locals and expats who came to visit and never left. It has a pretty young vibe; we’d guess that most people here are in the 20s and 30s, but that shouldn’t deter you because everyone is nice and doing their own thing. You’ll want a scooter to get around as Canggu isn’t super walking friendly and it’s just so hot in Bali, the scooter gives you natural air con to dry the sweat from your brow.
If you want beach with a lot more solitude then Amed is the next up and coming beach town toward the Northeast side of Bali. For more of a city vibe head to Ubud in central Bali. There is something for everyone here and an abundance of healthy, fresh food waiting around every corner.
