In August 2018, I travelled to Bali, Indonesia with my wife for our honeymoon (details related to the trip in general available here).

We took a day trip to Nusa Penida, taking the 45 minute speed boat (each way) to see the amazing cliffs, breathtaking views and nice beaches. The below video contains great drone footage of Kelingking Beach & Crystal Bay.

Mike Goddard Campuhan Ridge Walk

In August 2018, I travelled to Bali, Indonesia with my wife for our honeymoon.

We stayed three nights in Jimbaran, where we spent some visiting nearby locations - such as Jimbaran Beach, Sunday's Beach Club, Rock Bar - and many more. The below two videos are (1) sunset time-lapse of Rock Bar in Bali and (2) drone highlights from a few spots in/near Jimbaran.

We then spent three nights in Seminyak, the more busy/lively spot in Bali. After drinking far too much and seeing some fantastic sunsets, we trekked into the heart of the forest to stay in Ubud. While we were in Ubud, we visited the famous lush, scenic hiking trail: Campuhan Ridge Walk. The video below contains drone highlights from the beautiful walk.
