She captured a recent trip to Nusa Lembongan, one of Bali's best kept secrets, and graciously agreed to share it with us.

NUSA LEMBONGAN, Bali – During a two-month stint living in Bali, I planned a weekend escape to a Nusa Lembongan, a small island nearby.

Nusa Lembongan is the kind of place where you find yourself immersed in adventure and the outdoors — pot-holed trails through scrubby forests, chickens running wild, blue waters, little bays, surf spots, and natural beauty. It makes you feel free.

Sure, there are resorts and developments, but they have yet to take over the place. Right now it's a mix of fantasy holidaying mixed with down-to-earth adventuring.
