I am a small town girl from South Carolina until one day I sold everything I owned and moved to Bali, Indonesia with two suitcases. My blog is my outlet for all things I love and allows me to journal all things that inspire me. I also hope to share with you some of my expat experiences about life in Indonesia. Indonesia is such a diverse country with many different cultures and lifestyles. Still Want More? Please step into my world and have a look around.

    Selamat pagi AbsoluteAnna! Apa kabar? Saya nama Sandi dari Jerman dann saya cinta Bali!!!
    Where in Bali do you live? Bali is my passion and my life. I admire you for your strength to give up your life - I did the same thing when I moved to Germany some 27 yrs. ago. We go to Bali regularly and have many friends there. Would enjoy hearing more from you - I grew up in NORTH Carolina but don't regret moving to Europe. It has its beauty just as Bali....but Bali is MAGIC!!! Hope to hear from you soon. Semoga hari anda menyenangkan :-) (-:
