It’s been a few weeks since I came back from Bali, and I thought, why not do an additional travel themed
blog post. As you may know, I had the most amazing time there and I am thrilled to see that you loved the blog posts as much as I did. Today I wanted to share with you some of the products I couldn’t imagine my trip without. Without further ado, here is my list of Bali essentials:
I was in need of a new suitcase and a few weeks before heading to Bali I fell in love with the SuiSuit Houndstooth spinners. I knew that the smaller one from the set would be a perfect choice as a carry-on, while the biggest one as the check-in bag. The traditional houndstooth pattern with 1800s vibe is noticeable and chic, while the suitcases are extremely light, but solid. I would highly suggest you give their page a look, especially if you are looking for a spinner that will make you stand out from the crowd.
The beauty item you shouldn’t leave behind, if you are visiting areas near the equator is the SPF. We were fully equipped with three bottles of sunscreen – Garnier Ambre Solaire Dry Mist (which was a gift from a beauty blogger Gabi), Nivea Sun Protect&Bronze oil and Vichy Ideal Soleil Bronze spray. We managed to come back without any severe sunburn, however I must warn you – double apply it if surfing or driving a scooter.
My fellow Birkenstocks and leather Teva Originals were my go-to choice when it came to footwear. They are extremely comfortable and therefore a perfect pick for exploring new places. I took some nice and trendy metallic sandals with me as well, but in the end, I usually went for the “travel basics”. I could easily have left them at home and save some space for additional souvenirs.
Slovenian swimwear brand Lisca gave me a chance to wear one of their pieces for the upcoming season 2016. I was excited and honoured to be able to test these light green beauties out, which turned out to be one of the most comfortable and soft swimwear I took with me. They were a great addition to the other ones (Women’s Secret and Triangl) I have already wore throughout this summer.
Sony HX90 was the best new gadget I took with me. It is a smaller and lighter alternative to my Sony α55. We usually used both, however the HX90 turned out to be perfect for less accessible locations as well as the beach, cycling and scooter adventures. We already invited some of our friends and family to the Bali travelogue night and shared some of our best shoots with them. And I shouldn’t forget to mention – the HX90 flip screen was perfect for taking selfies!
We decided to get a pre-paid SIM card there, mainly to have access to the internet everywhere (it was way slower than the one we have at home, but still worked fast enough to check e-mails, navigate and occasionally share some photos on the social media). I took with me the famous Huawei P8, which served us great. I took some amazing shoots with its camera!
