20 Photos to Inspire You to Visit Bali – by @JetsetChristina

Bali is a dream vacation, a perfect honeymoon destination, a great group trip with friends, and all-in-all one of my very favorite places in the world.

If you guys are new around here, you may not know that I actually base out of Bali for most of the year. When I’m not traveling around, Bali is my home base and I’m full-on digital nomad. Working from my laptop and soaking up everything that Bali has to offer at the same time. It has become home for me, but it still feels like a vacation every day 🙂 If you haven’t been yet, here are 20 photos to inspire you to book your ticket, ASAP.

I have a few friends coming to visit Bali in a couple weeks so I’ve teamed up with Trello to make planning the trip a breeze! Check out my stories to see how their project management tool makes planning vacation itineraries wayyy easier and more collaborative! Seriously, guys, without @trelloapp I would NOT be able to travel as much as I do (or would go insane constantly having 20 travel itineraries swirling around in my head). They make planning trips – especially group trips! – SO easy and fun, and I love it. . AND I'm excited to announce that if you guys use Trello to plan a trip, you can be entered to win $5k! Head on over to @trelloapp for the link to sign up for the contest, and to win a $5k vacay!! . Good luck, jetsettas! xx . #travelwithtrello #ad

Last week, at Thanksgiving dinner, my nana said to me, “you made all the right choices”, and, after over a year living out of a suitcase, pursuing this crazy life full-time, it was the sweetest thing she could say. It also got me thinking. This whole life we create is really is just a combination of a million every day choices, isn’t it? . We choose to book that flight, to travel, to open ourselves up to opportunities. We choose to say YES. We choose who we want to be, and we make a million tiny decisions every day that get us closer to that. We choose to work harder, and to start that side hustle. To keep going, even when it’s tough. We choose to be persistent, and find a way to fulfill our wildest dreams. . We choose happiness, over stress. We choose to always look on the bright side. We choose love over war, every time. We choose to see life as an adventure, not as routine. Everything we do, every day is a choice. . Sometimes, without fail, our choices are questioned by people who may be afraid to make the same moves in their own lives, or can’t understand how you can “make it work” when the reality is, all you have to do is CHOOSE to make it work. To find a way. . When I decided to quit my job in San Francisco, and fly across the world to be with @kennyhaisfield in Bali and pursue @JetsetChristina full time, I chose love, passion and uncertainty, over stability and a paycheck. My friends thought I was crazy. My parents asked to see my business plan. My boss about had a heart attack. But my gut knew it was right. And I wouldn’t trade any of my little decisions that got me here for the world. . This life is a choose your own adventure, guys. Have fun with it! And happy #TravelTuesday! Now go book some flights❤️

#ad A lot of you are always asking how I don’t get homesick or sick of traveling so much when I’m on the road all the time. The truth is I call so many places around the world my “home” now. . I make an active effort to spend enough time in most of the places I go that I get to relax, and @bookingcom is a big part of letting me do that! I use Booking.com’s Homes & Apartments option because not only are they usually awesome, unique places to stay in-between resorts, but I love that I can, COOK, RELAX, do LAUNDRY and cuddle up in a BUBBLE BATH like a normal human (at least for a few days, before it’s back to the airport, lol) . If you (like me) constantly dream of swapping homes with someone on the other side of the world like Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet did in The Holiday, I have a huge Jetset Travel Tip for you for 2019: Consider putting your home or apartment up for rent on @Bookingcom . Sounds fun, right? Oh and the cash you make from putting your home up on @Bookingcom can pay for your entire trip… WIN WIN. See you all in Bali! #bookingcom

There’s no place like (any) home (with sea views) for the holidays 💦. . Even if you can’t be YOUR home, don’t you all agree sometimes it’s nice to rent a vacation home when you’re traveling? . Living life on the road, if I’m basing anywhere for more than a week, I always try to rent an apartment, villa or home on @Bookingcom, like this amazing one I stayed in last month in Bali (link to it is on my Bali guide on the blog – just Google “Jetset Ultimate Bali Guide”) . Did you guys know that @bookingcom has tons of super unique homes and apartments available as well as hotels? I didn’t until recently!! Check it out the links in my story for a special discount code on your next stay and let me know where you’re headed this holiday season in the comments below! . #ad #CourtesyofBookingCom #JetsetPartner #Bookingcom #HomefortheHolidays
