17 Reasons You Need To Visit Bali

Two months ago, as I sat in silent meditation in the mountains of Java, I made a promise to myself; wherever I ended up next, I would put my constant globe-hopping on pause (a brief pause I assure you) and just enjoy the view for a while. 

Well, I ended up in Bali. And as luck would have it, there is no shortage of views to enjoy here. 

Here are 17 shots to show you why I stayed and why you should turn up.
