Warm weather. Motorbikes. Vibes. The cartoon he watched when he was young, “As Told By Ginger,” taught him at age five the grass is always greener on the other side. Maybe it was greener in the Southern Hemisphere when it was colder in the Northern Hemisphere. He had thought that the last four years. There was only one way to find out, and it wasn’t the weather app.
A destination that social media and the internet told him was beautiful. Somewhere warm, full of motorbikes, and vibes. A place that could offer relief for his back, because no where else had. A place that could offer relief for his heart, because home could not. A place that he didn’t understand, and couldn’t until he got there. Bali, Indonesia would begin his adventure.
