The Travellist started as a blog about life in Bali, the amazing things to see and some of the new ways of life I'm experiencing. It has quickly turned into something more – we now consult on projects, business opportunities, marketing strategies and write for companies that need website content or articles for publication. The Travellist offers comprehensive social media strategies and marketing plans for your business. Our clients include villas, resorts, private holiday rentals, restaurants, short term accomodation, jewellers, clothing manufacturers, construction companies, property developers and interior designers. We also source deals and promotions and can assist your business to get these opportunities in front of the right customers for your business.

The Travellist is a place where you can go to: daydream about holidays; book accomodation; book tours; find ideas for where to go, where to eat, even where to shop! I base myself between Sanur and Lembongan – so mostly you’ll find lots of information and stories from these two places in Bali.

This is also a lifestyle and travel blog – I’m a frustrated writer and I love telling stories. Sometimes my stories are about my travels and the people I meet and places I go. Sometimes my stories are about life in another country. And I’ll also happily write about the wonderful places I get to visit on my travels, partly to help with your holiday daydreams but also to help you plan and book those holidays in Bali.

If you would like some advice or help with your holiday plans, email or Facebook message The Travellist.

If you are a business that would like to capture the imagination of our readers and people in lots of locations, please email info@the-travellist.com .

Happy daydreams and adventures!

Restaurants & Bars

With so many choices in Sanur and Lembongan restaurants and bars, where do you go? We have so many favourites, we can’t list them all. But here are a few we love…with more being listed every day.

Also check out some of our foodie blogs that go through our pick of restaurants and bars in Sanur, Lembongan, and all over Indonesia. And if you have a favourite restaurant or bar that we MUST go visit and should definitely list here, please let us know!

Things To Do & Bali Shopping

There are so many things to do and lots of shopping to be done in Bali so we’re here to help with some suggestions for our faves. Whether you have been to Bali before or this is your first trip here, it’s always good to have a little (or big) list of things to do. Because Bali really does have it all! You want to relax and be pampered, you can. You want to head out on a food journey around the island, you can. You want action and adventure, got that too!

We are compiling a list of things to do that we have done – check out the links below and if you would like us to list your tour or business (for free), please get in touch with us. We are constantly adding more things to do and shopping ideas to the list so keep checking in with us.

We also have links to some of our fave places to shop in Bali or online.

Why Bali?
Bali is one of most popular destinations in Indonesia & has long been a favourite for Aussie holiday makers & for good reason. It's close proximity to Australia means that you can be in Bali within a matter of hours depending on where you live ( a little longer for the eastern & southern states) and although so close it seems like a world away with the diversity of landscape & culture. The moment you step off the plane & leave the airport something tells you that you are well & truly not in Kansas now Toto. Read more
SPICE GIRLS: Jewellery Designer Duo Making Waves - The Banda Islands and Beyond
When people ask me 'How did you start your jewellery business and why Bali?' I grab a bottle of wine and say 'you better stay the night!'
When people say 'Oh, I see, you were in the right place, right time,' I reply, 'No, I put myself there.'
There is no right place right time. It's a case of constantly being presented with opportunity, seeing how it can be used and then grabbing it by the balls. Nothing in life comes easy….well, I fully disagree. I think it the universe wants you to have it, it will give it to you.Read more
Colour In Motion / Seminyak
I had the opportunity to take part in a creative collaboration recently with good friend and awesome photographer Mike Flynn from The Palms Agency. All I knew on arrival to our shoot was the theme: Colour In Motion / Seminyak.
I took the opportunity to involve one of the newest and hottest boutiques in Bali – Little Island Store. They stock some great Island treasures including their own label “Rays for Days” as well as Aussie must have brand MLM Label.
We set up on Jalan Petitenget Seminyak, just down from Potato Head with a view of capturing movement, lights, some palms and the buzz that is Seminyak. What unfolded was a high energy, technical and super fun shoot.Read more
