Finding my way to Bali

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

And all of it – right down to the moment I arrived was true. I flew from Charlotte, NC to Seoul, South Korea, and then onto Denpasar, Indonesia. Our incredible friend, driver and tour guide Congtit picked me up – just as planned (TIP: Congtit or his friends will pick you up too!). The drive from the airport takes a bit of time, but Congtit is wonderful to visit with, learn about Bali Culture, and his own art skills as a carver. After a deep night’s rest, I was greeted by Debra, Ibu Robin and Ibu Robin’s Assistant, Eat Pray Doula Alumnus and practicing doula, Saffira. Saffira is our “on-site” coordinator, we like to call her our “Bali Doula”. After so many emails, Whatsapp chats and more, it was wonderful to finally connect with our team! Saffira helps our doulas coordinate Bali based activities – massages, lost luggage, transport and more. She is kind, warm, and so much fun to spend time with.

I also had the honor of meeting Ibu Robin’s daughter, Lakota, who has been a huge part of the team for years, and Robin’s beautiful mother who we are honored to spend time with during Eat Pray Doula.
