A tiny, pretty island called Gili Meno

Featured

Last night I finally finished reading "Eat, pray, love", which I had started like three months ago. I really enjoyed that book, even if it had some slow parts where I interrupted my reading for a couple weeks. I always knew that its author Elizabeth Gilbert started a pilgrimage of her readers to Bali (I … Continue reading A tiny, pretty island called Gili Meno
