#WanderlustWednesday: Bali Travel Tips with Diana O’Gilvie

Bali Travel Tips

After watching (or reading) Eat, Pray Love, I think Bali made its way to almost everyone’s travel bucket list, including mine. Though I still haven’t made it to this Indonesian paradise just yet, for this #WadnerlustWednesday, I got insider travel tips from Diana O’Gilvie, a travel writer, photographer and film maker who now calls Bali home.

In our discussion, she dishes on the top 5 must see/do things, how she ended up making the move and more about expat life on the island. You can check out the full interview in the video below.


Living in Bali, Diana has accumulated a ton of knowledge on surviving and thriving in her adopted home. If you’re planning a short term or extended stay, you should definitely check out her resources.

Eat Pray Stay Long Term Bali Travel TipsHer book Eat, Pray, Stay for Days:  A Guide to Long Term Travel in Bali is a crash course in cultural immersion with a listing of top beaches, spas, nightlife spots and more.

For the food lovers out there, Diana’s created Indonesian Street Food, a travel app to help you navigate the diverse array of street food options around the country. It’s available in the Google Play Store and iTunes.

And if you’re wondering how Diana made the leap to living her dreams, you can learn more from her free email series at EatPrayStayForDays.com/ATA.

    Thanks for Sharing April I would love to visit Bali someday soon. She makes it sound like so much fun.

    • You’re welcome Fabiola! Diana’s photos and stories have me ready for an extended stay as well and 2015 just might be the year!

    She is so accomplished! I hope to make it to Bali one day as well. I did my own “Eat Pray Love” but in several North California cities.

    • Diana has definitely done a lot and I love how she’s taken her skillsets and repurposed them to design her ideal life.
      I hope to make Bali happen really soon as well!
