What You Could Get in Canggu for $10 – 5 Budget-Friendly Activities to Travel Around the Best Digital Nomad Area in Bali

You know… As an Indonesian, one of my pet peeves is to meet anyone who claims to be a world traveler but can barely understand that Bali is actually just a small island in an archipelago called Indonesia. And as an Indonesian myself, I’m not exactly a big fan of the island.

But today, on the $10 series, I’m going to cover yet another part of Bali after talking about Uluwatu and Ubud the other day.

5 Ways to Create Multiple Streams of Income That Work For Me

By all means, I’m not a financial consultant, nor am I good in numbers. But yesterday, I just had a conversation with a realtor who offered me some options for accommodation for my next trip that I’m comfortable.

I am a single lady who mostly works from home now, and I’m glad that I never jumped into the bandwagon to quit the job and travel. As I quit the job to do some freelance job at home, I realized that being a digital nomad is not for everyone. And it is definitely not for me.

A couple of months ago, if you frequently read my blog then you probably know that I’ve done Borneo trip for a month. During that period, I got a chance to become a temporary digital nomad.

At some point, I’m just thankful that I don’t do this full time.
