Travel Diary Days 66 - 69: Gili Air, Indonesia

Gili Air Island in Indonesia is what this post is all about! We are just about finished with the Southeast Asia Travel Diary series. Indonesia was the final stop! Read about the island, what we did for fun, and where we stayed. This island is super small and kind of eerie!

Wow, it's been quite some time since I've published on the blog. In fact, it's now been over a year since we were in Indonesia. Being the Aquarian that I am, I couldn't just NOT finish the Southeast Asia Travel Diary series. Indonesia was the final stop! And so, with this post, I finally complete the travel series, and will get back to blogging about other cool things soon, I promise! Plus a podcast in the works!

Serene Yoga Retreat in Bali, Indonesia

Serene Yoga Retreat in Bali, Indonesia

Serenity Eco Guesthouse is a family-run eco center that focuses on providing quality yoga programs that are accessible to all and to operating in a way that is synergistic with it's surroundings. We were impressed by the level of thought and attention that goes into the details of being environmentally friendly throughout this space. I'll talk more about the facilities and practices at Serenity Eco Guesthouse in a future article, but for now, I want to focus on highlighting their Serene Yoga Retreats.

Travel Diary Days 7 - 11: Phuket, Lanta, Phi Phi, Tao - Thailand Island Hopping

Travel Diary Days 7 - 11: Phuket, Lanta, Phi Phi, Tao - Thailand Island Hopping

After close to a week of hard volunteer work at Eco-Logic Yoga Retreat Center, Pete and I were ready for some R&R! Due to the scheduling of our trip (the dates we were at the center and the Full Moon party in Koh Phangan on 1/23 that I wanted to go to), we only had a few days in between to explore the various islands. My parents are coming soon so we will be with them in Koh Phangan and Koh Samui for longer periods of time. Prior to the trip, we deliberated with either choosing 1 - 2 islands for the 5 day stretch or trying to see a few of them and hopping around. We chose the latter because we weren't able to decide what to nix out, and we really wanted to experience all of the popular islands. A few people told us that we were doing it too fast, and in hindsight, I have to agree.

Travel Diary Days 3 - 6: Volunteering at TCDF Eco-Logic Yoga Retreat

Eco-Logic Yoga Retreat and TCDF (Thai Child Development Foundation) are located in Pak Song, near Ranong in Thailand. Their tag line is "Yoga for Charity" because the retreat center is set up to support the projects of the Thai Child Development Foundation. Each stay supports the foundation and their efforts directly.
