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.

Flying Tips: Things You Can Do to Make Sitting Around Kids on a Flight More Bearable

One time, I had a friend asking me for some tips to cure the fear of flight. She thought that since I used to work as a flight attendant, I’d know the answer. Half joking, I told her to sit around kids on the plane so she’d focus more on the anxiety of making them cry or throw a tantrum rather than flying itself.

I mean, I’m not gonna lie… I’m not a fan of the idea to sit around kids on a flight. Even worse if it’s a long-haul flight. I remember during my flying time, I always felt anxious whenever I had family traveling with kids around the aisle. God forbid when it’s an infant.

With that being said, I know some of you won’t be happy about my confession. Especially those who are parents. One time, there was this Indonesian model who got slammed after complaining about a crying baby on board. I casually tweeted about it and said that I was lowkey on her side since I’m not a fan of crying babies on a flight anyway.

That, only to get a DM from my friend who recently got a baby lecturing me about traveling with kids. And even creating this collab post is not without drama, since I had to get into a debate as some fellow blogger said that this post would be offensive for some parents. While this might be true, I understand that you don’t have to be everyone’s cup of tea. And neither do I nor my blog post.
