Paradise on earth
Renate takes a trip to one of her favourite countries for a holistic break with a dear friend…
I love being in the sun so my good friend Angie and I took a trip to Bali to detox, relax and escape the cold British weather.
It’s one of my favourite places in the whole world – I LOVE the fascinating culture and the people who are extremely spiritual and beautiful.
So we packed our swimmers, bright sarongs and my favourite basket beach bag and set off to enjoy some relaxing girly time.
After a few days exploring Ubud and looking at the rice paddies and exotic scenery, we travelled up north for a luxurious week at the Tembok Spa Village.
There is nothing much to do there except enjoy the wonderful views, organic food and totally switch off from all your stresses with daily yoga and treatments – pure bliss!
The only people you see there are guests and the fisherman delivering the fresh fish every day.
The chef there absolutely spoilt us with organic, healthy food and freshly squeezed juices made with all the delicious fruits they grow.
I felt like my mind and skin was glowing by the end of the week!
In between amazing treatments and relaxing yoga, we found time to do a cookery course where we made a Balinese curry, and basket weaving.
We were sad to leave but felt revitalized and with a healthy body and mind.
