We are in Bali with Lana Nahawi, a mother, a business women and a travel lover who works in S*uce with a group of people that live in a wonderland and make magic happen. Here is a very inspiring trip on Bali with her 2 kids! We always love to hear how parents manage to travel to such exotic places with children. Lana does it so effortlessly.

Here is her diary

Destination: Bali, Indonesia

It was a last second decision driven by VISA constraints, my kids and really my never ending love affair for an Asian island experience, organized by Reem Shaath from WhyWander.com

Stayed at UMA in Ubud and the W in Seminyak

UMA is the most charming boutique resort high up in stunning Ubud. The surroundings are so tranquil, the view is breathtaking and the room took my children and I by surprise… We walked into a private little villa on a cliff with our own mini infinity pool overlooking a really deep valley with a river down below.

Monthย  August

In your suitcase Beach dresses and flip flops! You donโ€™t need anything else!

Dined at A fresh Seafood restaurant in Jimbaran Bay. I donโ€™t remember the name of the restaurant, but there are so many of them lined up at the bay that are super yummy! I especially love the meals that were cooked with spicy Indonesian sauces ๐Ÿ™‚

Shoppedย  I didnโ€™t shop! That wasnโ€™t on the agenda with my kids on board. In any case I usually donโ€™t like to shop when Iโ€™m travelingโ€ฆ Unless something reaaaallly takes my breath away ๐Ÿ˜‰

Diary The reason I loved Bali, is because you get the island experience combined with an endless range of activities for families. Iโ€™ve been to islands where your experience is limited to just the resort. This was absolutely not the case in Bali.. Last summer, the kiddies and I were relaxing by the beach and pool at our resort, jet skiing, para gliding, banana boat riding (or bouncing rather), horse riding, elephant riding, bird watching, dining, dancing, river rafting, we went to 2 water parks, a safari, a drumming concert, a Balinese play, getting outdoor massages (even my eldest child Omar!!!)etc.. Our days were jam packed with family fun, bonding and the gorgeous landscape that Is Bali!

Tips Go with the flow, do what you feel! The Balinese are wonderful wonderful people and can always suggest places to go. I do recommend you factor in driving timeโ€ฆ it took us an hour and a half to get anywhere. Spa treatments are a must!!!!

Mode of travel Emirates Airlines. I love Emirates!!! It was a smooth and flawless trip ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I miss you with all my heart and soul...
  • A year ago I was having breakfast with those beautiful giants. An unforgettable experience. Thank you all for your beautiful comments on my previous post ๐Ÿ’•
  • I struggled to choose a caption for this image because they say that you are what you share on social media, and so, I wanted to make it count. 
Being a 'blogger' or a 'traveler' has changed significantly over the past few years. You canโ€™t go on Instagram without stumbling upon hundreds of carefully selected, beautifully crafted images. 
The truth is, today, things are not the same as they used to be. Travel has changed and grown. The internet has given us a chance to see the world through people's eyes and to dream of places many of us never even knew existed. 
But social media has also changed travel and the nature of blogging. Sharing my travel online has today somewhat been a constant pressure and the staging of every single photo has become the business of every instagrammer. 
I have felt the pressure of keeping up and carefully selecting what I chose to share. 
I've even promised myself that I would be a leader, not a follower, and stay far away from online traveling trends that would warp my ability to offer my readers the very best & honest tips and insider reports. 
The key...is confidence... I had the chance to make every possible mistake and figure out a way to always recover from it. Once you realize that there is life after a mistake, you gain your confidence and that, never goes away,
It goes straight to the heart and once you have that, no one and nothing can take that away from you . . I hope Iโ€™ll always have the courage to live a life thatโ€™s true to who I am and not the life that others expect of me... ๐Ÿ’•[Click link in bio to read the full article] ๐Ÿ’•.
