Taman Nusa Cultural Park

Apologies if you’ve already seen most of these photos on Instagram, I was just going to leave them on there but then I thought I’d write up a little informational post for anyone visiting Bali and looking into this attraction as it seems to be little known...

Go Outside

For the past three weeks I’ve been working on a new business. Actually it’s an old business but having neglected it for so many years, it was bringing in a negligible amount of cash each month. After floundering for so long, I finally felt motivated and...

Natsukashii and random ramblings

Don’t forget the…
