1. You grew up on a beach. Obviously.
You’ve sunk your toes in immaculate white sand beaches in Nusa Dua, and volcanic black sand beaches in Sanur. You learned to surf at Echo Beach, then moved on to world-class waves at Ulu Watu and Padang Padang. You’ve dived in one of the most diverse and beautiful marine ecosystems in the world when you were in Nusa Lembongan. You remember the rare, liberating sensation you felt when you watched the sun rise at Kuta and Double Six as you sobered up.
