What You Could Get in Omaha for $10 – What’s There to See in the Biggest City of Nebraska

After covering Islamorada last week, today we will remain in the United States of America to cover another city in another state. And this time, we’re going to aim to the state of Nebraska.

As some of you probably know, I know nothing much about travel destinations in America. However, thanks to the knowledge gained from Hollywood University, I suppose I could get some American jokes, antics, and stereotypes. And when it comes to Omaha, Nebraska… One thing that I remember about it is that it’s the hometown of Penny from The Big Bang Theory.

Other than that, based on some jokes I heard on the TV show… I suppose Omaha is not that popular as a travel destination in America. Let alone for foreigners who might aim for big cities like New York or Washington D.C, it seems like even people in America rarely has Omaha on their bucket list.

But if you’re a traveler like me who prefers to go to some off-the-beaten places, then maybe you should consider Omaha next time. Thanks to SJ of The Prosperous Blonde who will cover the city on our $10 series today! 🙂

Bali Travel Tips: What You Need to Know About Fast Boat to Nusa Penida

Nusa Penida has become one of the hottest spots to visit around Bali and its surroundings these days. It’s not without any reason that some people strongly suggest Nusa Penida as a part of the itinerary, because now that I’ve been to Bali for the first time… I think Nusa Penida is the only place that I genuinely liked and enjoyed during my last trip.

When I arranged the itinerary for this Bali trip, I was already planning to go to Nusa Penida. However, I was a bit hesitant to book a tour since everything I found on the internet is freaking expensive. The average price of the tour for Nusa Penida starts from IDR 600,000 (around $42 USD) per pax, and I was traveling with my mom and my brother.

I’m the kind of person who is absolutely price-sensitive, and I find the price quite expensive. I mean, if the price is that high, with the same amount of money I could actually book a flight back home. Therefore, I decided to just do everything on my own.

It’s not that we were in a really tight budget, if anything I was quite adventurous when I decided to just go to Nusa Penida first and see what options I could find once I get there. At first, I checked the boat schedule from Bali to Nusa Penida through Easybook.

That, only to find out that the boat ticket isn’t so cheap either. The ticket starts from IDR 150,000 (around $10 USD) one way. As I doubt that the price would be that high, I did some research in my mother tongue Indonesian… Only to find out that the average price for the boat ticket is actually half of it.

The Alea Hotel Seminyak: A Cozy and Cheap Hotel in Bali, Indonesia

When I first planned my Bali trip, I really had no idea how Bali is in terms of location. Like, I’ve heard a lot of well-known areas around Bali like Kuta, Ubud, Seminyak, or Canggu. And if there’s anything that I keep in mind when I started planning out my trip, it was to avoid the Kuta area that is somewhat the least recommended these days.

Long story short, since I’ve spent around 2 weeks in Bali, I decided to stay at a few different hotels in various areas around the island.

I heard a lot of good stuff about Canggu from some travel groups I’m in on Facebook. However, a few months before my departure, one of my friends stayed around Canggu area and she wasn’t impressed. She told me that Seminyak seems like a better choice to stay around Bali.

According to some other friend, Seminyak is mostly suitable for young travelers who are keen on some nightlife as well. There are some pubs in the surrounding area, including the famous Mrs. Sippy Bali. Because of this, I then prioritized some hotel options around Seminyak, until I decided to book a room at The Alea Hotel Seminyak.
