‘it’s the friends you meet on the path that make the journey worthwhile’

What an adventure! Thanks for such an amazing experience and your special insights into how to live and inhale the wonders of each day.


You have a true talent for crafting meaningful experiences. We feel so fortunate to have experienced the region like a local. The memories will be forever in our hearts. Lauren and Russ.

I’ve done a lot of travelling and it’s honestly one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. On many fronts. Just awesome!! Be opened minded, go with the flow, relax and enjoy everything Timor-Leste. Felicity.

Thank you for a sharing caring island getaway. I thoroughly enjoyed the active slow travel (is that an oxymoron?) With a great group of interesting intelligent strong women. Christine.

Congratulations for having the courage to go off the beaten track. It was the trip of a lifetime. Friendships were forged for life. The memories will take a very long time to fade. Start of an exciting new chapter for all of us methinks. Jenny.

It was a trip of a life time! Love your attitude and how your infuse this into your trips. I treasure the feeling of accomplishment and yearn for better mobility and agility after sitting too much for work! Tara.

The best type of holidays ever, I’m hooked, 5 trips under my belt with Sharing Bali and Beyond. Number 6 in May and looking to book number 7 soon. Michelle
