Traveling alone always has its pros and cons, it can either make you or break you. Being alone is something else, waking up alone in a brand new country tests you regularly, but although being alone can be scary, its possibly one of the best things you can do. To really get to know yourself and how far you will push yourself to get out of your comfort zone!
Luckily for me I’ve gone and nabbed myself an unreal internship working for a Bali based company called Gu Guide, and been thrown well and truly into Canggu life with some incredible women.
From hitting up new events in the Gu, to eating at incredible restaurants daily and of course pushing myself in sweaty workouts and flowing with soul during yoga classes. I can well and truly say I am fully in love with Canggu and everything it has to offer, and over the past few months this is the most I have laughed and smiled within the space of a few weeks!
When visiting Canggu its important to know that it is split into three main areas: Berawa, Echo Beach and Batu Balong, all of these areas are super accessible with a scooter, and all have brilliant bars, restaurants and hang outs. Canggu is the new digital nomad hub, its full of entrepreneurs, social media experts and yogis. Every man, woman and dog is a yoga teacher of some sort and everyone has at least 1000 followers on instagram, so get ready for some deep and meaningful conversations whilst gaining a few followers through the hashtags; #balilife and #canggu!
You can’t beat the food spots, whether its a local warung you’re aiming for, or a restaurant serving black cod, Canggu has got you covered. Do you fancy a chilled hangout on the beach for free with a local coconut, or sipping daiquiris or the local fave, espresso martini’s, whilst sunning yourself at a beach club? Grab a scooter, wear a helmet and get exploring the shortcuts and winding roads of Canggu, throw some weights about at the infamous Wanderlust, or get downward dogging in one of the many yoga spots.
Accommodation is easy to come by, whether you’re booking a fancy hotel, getting stuck into a hostel or finding a co-living space to meet like minded others. Booking is easy to find online, and even better once you’re in Canggu, there are adverts all over the place and the more people you meet, the more advice you’ll get.
So come and spend some time in the Gu and get to know this awesome community even more!
