Life is Good Vacations by Austin Adventures has teamed up with Michael Franti’s Soulshine Bali, the island’s leading yoga retreat hotel, to bring you the newest in outdoor adventure travel. Where to? A destination for anyone chasing wanderlust, hunting down adventure, or looking for peace of mind among some of the planet’s most out-of-this-world landscapes.
“Last spring, I had the opportunity to head to Bali with Austin Adventures and experience the trip of a lifetime,” says Andy Austin, Austin Adventures’ custom trip expert. “Our expertise paired with the good vibes of Life is Good and Michael Franti is a combination that’s second to none.”
It’s hard to disagree when at Soulshine, your days start with sunrise yoga and end with conversation and chilled cocktails. In between, you’ll see the island from a local’s point of view with treks to seaside villages, art workshops, and bike rides through emerald green rice paddies. Then there’s the indulgent and nourishing spread from Soulshine’s organic garden and neighboring farms. Grilled fish, tropical juices, creamy vegan pasta, raw deserts—a heaven for every appetite.
It’s not just memories you’ll find here, but the kind of education only travel can give. In Ubud, you’ll learn how farmers cultivate harmony with every grain of rice. In Bulian, you’ll meet with a village passing on traditional music and dance to a new generation. And at the Yayasan Bumi Sehat non-profit, you’ll meet with community members supporting family health through holistic medicine—and lots of love.
Add it all up and it’s easy to understand why Bali is so much more than a mark on the map. It’s a place to turn to for unbelievable experiences, relaxation, rejuvenation, and to feel the lasting effects of gratitude long after you return home.
