    (Video) Why Does Indian Astrology Work? A Chat With Shivananda

    First uncut podcast so far. This time, Shivananda, an eminence in Ayurvedic Astrology based in Ubud, Bali, had me for an hour to chat about all things astrology, the ancient sciences, our future as human beings, the role of religion, our views on Ayurveda, yoga, and much more. And I have to say: I have put him in the spot, constantly. So prepare to listen to uncomfortable questions and very elaborated and well-explained answers. An absolute pleasure!

    (Video) Spirituality in Bali: Behind The B******t

    (Video) Spirituality in Bali: Behind The B******t

    I call it the Baliverse. Is Bali really a spiritual place? Yes. Is Ubud full of fake coaches and pretentious tossers? Also yes. Ubud has two polar opposites: the yogis and the digital nomads. Which one will you be if you were to go? 

    After spending two months in Ubud I’ve gotta say that there are more fake humans with no guts than true spiritual souls. Spirituality has become a product, and youth / sexual appropriation is sometimes the end goal when selling "freedom” in places like The Yoga Barn, Ubud. 

    Old men dancing with young women, people with no life experience selling life coaching packages. Are you really sure you know what to expect from Ubud?

    Learning To Dive: Everything You Need To Know

    Learning To Dive: Everything You Need To Know

    Hi guys, I just finished my Advanced Open Water course and before I forget all the theory and juicy stuff, I decided to dedicate one episode to talk about my experience as a recently certified diver, covering the following: 

    The difference between the Open Water Course & the Advanced Open Water 
    Where I did the courses (Mambo Dive Resort - Nusa Penida) 
    Why I highly recommend diving in Nusa Penida, Bali (Indonesia) 
    Fish and marine life that I got to see, including mantas 
    My struggles with the Open Water Course, and later on during the Advanced Open Water Course 
    Skill tests I went through on both Open Water and Advanced Open Water to be certified 
    Different types of adventure dives you can choose from when rolling on an Advanced Open Water Course in Nusa Penida 
    Funny stuff that happened to me when diving and frequently asked questions such as what to do if you want to poo underwater. 

    These and more are waiting for you. If you are interested in starting a diving journey, this podcast is definitely for you.  Reach out if you have questions or comments, or if you simply want to share your experience with me at perlameetstheworld@gmail.com.  Otherwise, you can find me on Instagram @perlameetstheworld for more content, new podcast episodes, and epic adventures!

    (Video) What Is It Like To Live In Bali For A Month?

    (Video) What Is It Like To Live In Bali For A Month?

    When was the last time you were challenged to the point of questioning all your beliefs? I feel like Jon Snow, not knowing anything anymore. It only took one month in Ubud to come to the realisation that I am fortunate to be alive, that the Balinese culture is pure kindness, and that we should all strive for happiness and what brings us joy. Because nothing really matters. 

    I share my struggles, challenges, and joyful moments I experienced in Ubud and with my Balinese family. And I'd love for you to get inspired too, and go there yourself.

    If you liked it, please don't forget to share it with your loved ones and friends. Subscribe, review, comment... it helps others know that I exist!

    (Video) Travelling Solo Again & Shitting My Pants

    What a tit! Basically, I summarised my past few months in Airlie Beach, Queensland (my so-called home away from home) where a lot of things happened, if I am honest, including a police siege next to my house.  Once the updates are all out there, I open up about how I feel regarding travelling, after so long staying in Australia (pandemic, comfort, call it X) And it just so happens that the nervousness and fear of travelling to a new place never leave you. It doesn't matter if you consider yourself a digital nomad (I do) or a travel lover... the unknown will always shake your confidence. You can either transform it into excitement or let it eat you alive!! (Choose excitement, please)  Enjoy! And if you think someone you know is about to embark on a new adventure and could benefit from some moral support, please do share, subscribe, comment, review...whatever suits you best! It helps people know this exists!
