Traveling with someone completely changed the dynamics of my trip. It's distracting, there is not a lot of me-time, no writing, blogging, tweeting, no records, no reflecting, no time to process. As if my life stopped and a copy of me continued the journey. It came at the right time though; as I missed having decent conversations and crazy nights out.

Ella, you are one of the most beautiful people I know. You get it, and you get me. We will see each other again soon. Take care and good luck in Paris!!

As I had not slept the night before (don't ask) I took the slow boat (read boat + minivan + 5h boat + another minivan) back to Bali; I booked myself a very comfortable hotel in the centre of Ubud. I've been washing everything obsessively: my backpack, my shoes, my handbag, my towels and sleeping bag, as to get rid of all of the ferry and Gili Trawangan dirt. I'm happy to be back in Bali, I feel liberated. In a couple of days I am leaving for Australia and I'm trying to get ready. I secured my first couch, I'm planning to buy a van or car in Darwin and I am very excited!

I miss my family & my Sibili. And some of those special individuals living in Herentals and surroundings too. I would like to get some updates from you.

While coming to my senses in Ubud, I decided to watch "The Secret". Learning about the 'Law of Attraction' and the fact that merely thinking of something is the start of actually creating it, I kind of freaked out. All I could think about was: "that means I should not think about cockroaches", "I should definitely, never, ever again think about cockroaches" and "No, I don't want them to haunt me any longer". I know, wrong, so very wrong. As all those negative cockroach thoughts were sending only one message into the universe: "cockroach".

The next day, I looked at myself in the mirror as I was thinking about something that I really want to happen. So I said to myself, in the mirror: "I want it and I'm going to have it!". At that exact same moment, it startled me, a giant cockroach flies into my room. I was on the first floor, go figure. It sat on a small ledge above my bed; I was looking at it, in amazement, in the mirror. It sat right in the spotlight too and as a result of that, a huge cockroach shadow was reflected on my wall. All I could do was shake my head, laugh and think: "The Secret actually, freaking works!". As from now, I am not going to write, speak or think about the c-word again. Butterflies, universe, butterflies is what I want.
