Here come the Bali posts! A year too late, but I bet nothing’s changed and it’s all still the same anyway. These photos are from Tanah Lot Temple. It was alright, although it felt like a bit of a scam. To enter, you had to pay to get yourself blessed with holy water and some rice was put on your forehead. Then you could keep going further to the temple…although there was literally just two meters of steps and then the entry was blocked. Like WHAT did I just pay for? If you’d like to visit here, then my advice is: don’t do the blessing because it’s not gonna get you anywhere and you’ll just queue for nothing. It’s not expensive, but I’d say it’s waste of time. However, I did find the blessing ”ceremony” quite interesting. It is also insanely touristic at Tanah Lot, which I’m also not a big fan of. Other than that I liked it, the views were pretty and I wish we had more time to stroll around. I heard this is great at sunset, too!

My aim is not to give negative vibes, but instead, I’d like to give a realistic image of places I go to. There are so many travel blogs, vlogs, and Instagram accounts that are just pure lies, if you can say that. You know, only talking about how great everything is and making it look like there was no one else there when the truth is there were 500 people standing right behind you. I have nothing against that and I follow those accounts too, but I’m too lazy to edit all my photos that heavily if you know what I mean. 😉
