You know when you just find yourself in another country and you’re just like…”man! I just need to get out of here?” hahaha okay maybe that might not be a phrase you find yourself saying when you’re on vacation. Unfortunately, I found myself saying exactly just that during my recent trip to Bali. Let’s just say finding two cockroaches in our hotel room and a trash filled ocean that was right next to our hotel wasn’t the Bali trip I had in mind.
When things like this happen, I find it important to find a way to make the best of things. Especially, when you’ve taken time off work to fly half way around the world for a much needed vacation. You need to find a way to turn things around, so that’s exactly what we did!
One morning, we took a cab ride to a ocean side town called Semniyak and found ourselves in a beach town resort that was absolutely beautiful. The funny thing was, we went there trying to check out a place called the Potato Head beach club but as we walked around we found this amazing pool side that had these awesome bean bag chairs. We asked one of the employees if we could sit down even if we weren’t guests of the hotel and they said “yes” so we got ourselves comfortable. The service ended up being incredible and my friend and I had an amazing time just lounging around in the sun while sipping on our delicious orange ice teas.
Sometimes you just need to find a way to turn things around and in this particular case I am so happy I did. Have you ever been in a situation where you find yourself in a rut or in a bind? If so, how do you get yourself out of the funk? Let me know in the comments below!
Until next time!
