Starting out in the darkness of the night, to hike Mount Batur, it feels like one's ascend is lifting earth out of the shadows and bringing the beginning of a new day. With every step, dawn is brightening ever more, until it breaks upon your final steps up the steep mountain slope.
Beholding the aurora in all its beauty I felt overpowered by loneliness and a sense of longing to have somebody by my side or be at someone else's.
I haven't felt like this in a very long time and I'm grateful, for it gives me a sense of purpose and a goal to strive for.
Standing there, in this particular moment, it was clear to me, that Bali is indeed the island of the gods.
This has been, without a doubt, my single most beautiful experience in South East Asia.
