For as long as I can remember, I have suffered with Emetophobia, or vomit phobia as it is more commonly known. I can remember every instance of ever being sick from the age of around 3 as well as every time I have witnessed someone else being sick. It isn’t just that the smell and the noise makes me a little grossed out (I’m sure the majority of people would rather avoid seeing or being sick) – for me it is so much more than that and something I have battled for most of my life.
During our stay in neighbouring island Lembongan, we knew we wanted to visit Nusa Penida without forking out the cost of an expensive day trip. Accommodation is also limited out there, especially within our budget.

If you are travelling to Kuala Lumpur on a tight budget, never underestimate a street food market. Around 6pm every night, the street of Jalan Alor comes alive, teeming with vendors selling an array of delicious street food, from local Malaysian to Indian and Chinese influences.

A popular tourist site, Mount Batur is an active volcano, situated on the North East side of the island. The last eruption was in 2000, however seismic activity was recorded a few days after our hike, hinting at a impending eruption (which has since dropped). The excitement of climbing an active volcano is certainly enough to get the blood pumping!
