It's funny how things happen. As I finished writing my last post, after having the epiphany by the pool, I took my laptop back to the room, chucked on my swimmers and went for a swim. Two Aussies and two Brits starting chatting and I heard them mention Byron Bay. So I spoke up... told them I lived in the area and joined in on the conversation.... two hours later I was a total prune and completely water logged but happy to have chimed in, pushed a boundary and made some friends.
Now, we are headed out to dinner tonight - the five of us.
I'm happy as a pig in shit today. After meeting these ladies, I headed out on my own for a look around. One of them had told me about a gorgeous Day Spa called Spa Bali and gave me a brochure. So, I walked around the streets of Seminyak and eventually stumbled across the place. I've booked in for a 2 hour treatment - which includes a full body massage, a scrub and a flower bath. Can't wait!
On my way back, I realised I hadn't had lunch and I happened across a vegetarian cafe (Zulu - on JL Camplung Tanduk) that served healthy, mostly raw foods. Delish, cheap and super friendly. If I hadn't given myself a rule that I wasn't to eat in the same place twice (I'm a creature of habit and would eat all three meals in the safety of the hotel compound otherwise) I'd be back there again tomorrow! Comes HIGHLY recommended - from me anyway.
Learning so much about myself already... and I haven't even arrived at the retreat yet.
Loving live... loving Bali... and loving myself right now.
All is good in the hood.
