My obsession with the colour turquoise πŸ¬πŸŸπŸ³πŸŒŠπŸ’™

I found myself loving every shade of blue and turquoise lately and I can't even remember when it started. Anything I get, you can most likely find me looking around the sea and sky coloured corners of every shop. Not only do I think the colour blue is a classic colour, that I always love to wear, but also a happy colour, which reminds you of a time away from stress and worries.

The color turquoise is associated with meanings of refreshing, feminine, calming, sophisticated, energy, wisdom, serenity, wholeness, creativity, emotional balance, good luck, spiritual grounding, friendship, love, joy, tranquility, patience, intuition, and loyalty. - Google claims

For me personally the colour symbolises freedom, and a little bit of wanderlust. A calm colour, that can channel energy and makes me feel more active and alive. It makes me think of different places I'd rather be, when I am in a bad place and helps me pick myself up. I am generally a person that gets very excited about the smallest things, but if you find me something that is small and turquoise, you got me over the moon.

If you know me well, you understand what I am talking about! You should see my University room..πŸ‘€ it is a little turquoise oasis just for me. I am crazy, I know. But who isn't?


Love,

Paula

 I've always enjoyed following other travel blogs, that inspired me and I wanted to be one of them. As this is my first post I feel like I owe an explanation of me and why I chose to start this blog. Being a little traveler for all my life, with my parents taking me to so many amazing places I felt the need to share experiences, impressions I gather along the way. I want to inspire and show people amazing places they would love to go to.

This brings me to my most recent trip that I went on : Bali 🌴


Eyeing this destination for approximately forever, I finally got to go. For what I can say to summarise this trip in any way: Go! We had a week to explore and relax our souls from the demanding world of university, but this is not nearly enough time to explore everything magic that Bali holds. One of the things that amazed me are the people before anything. So genuine and the bit we got to see about their culture greeted us with happiness and colours everywhere. And I mean everywhere. We got lucky to come at a time they have a local celebration that is called 'Kuningan' and which celebrates purification and is also called 'Yellow Day'. Days before the event the streets and temples were decked in shades of yellow, wether it was fabric or flowers, it was unmissable and the happy colour did not fail to reach minds everywhere. It was beautiful and thought was in every detail you could lay eyes on.

The nature around Bali is breathtaking and seems so surreal, that it makes you want to never leave. Looking over the edge of the jungle, spotting nothing but the endless green, palm tress and a few lost temples within, gives you a sense of freedom and wilderness that you could probably get nowhere else. Waterfalls around Bali are not a rare site and complete the tropical paradise that you find yourself in. If you stay deep enough into the jungle you will find yourself having breakfast with monkeys in the morning and haggling over sarongs and the most intriguing things just after lunch.

Bali has definitely left me with a deep desire for Oxford to open a Balinese Restaurant. As my favourite dish of all time is Thai Red Chicken Curry, most of the dishes are very similar to what I would love to eat every single day, if I had the chance to. Most dishes are prepared with Rice, Special Bali Spices, roasted vegetables and either meat or chicken and this probably made me happier then it should've done. But blame me, I love food. The best experience has yet to be the day on the boat, where we were fishing for our own lunch. We succeeded surprisingly and had our lunch at the smallest local restaurant you could imagine. The fish and squid was grilled on dry coconut shells and we tried ourselves at eating with our fingers. It is .. something else.

Everything about Bali proved itself to be worth the long journey.

I can't wait to go back,

but my next stop is Abu Dhabi in the UAE.

Stay tuned... more is coming
