Join me in Bali in 2023!

Well, I've fingers and toes and everything else crossed that 2023 will be the year I get back to my beloved BALI, and I want YOU to join me!

There are two options and they are open to EVERYONE

OPTION 1 - Writing Retreat, where we will spend 10 days working on our writing projects as well as moving around my favourite areas so you can get a small taste of why I love this place so much. You can be sure there is inspiration everywhere!

OPTION 2 - a guided tour of My Bali - a one to two week excursion where I take you to my favourite places, sampling the REAL Bali, through food, culture and of course shopping!


Please register your interest below and I will keep you up-to-date with details as they come to hand.

Bali is my soul home and I know it well. Having lived there twice for five months and visited there regularly over the past 10 years, I know all the great places to go! Whether it's shopping, beaches, rice terraces, ancient temples, gorgeous gorge walks, or incredible food, I've got a fabulous tour all mapped out to show you the REAL BALI!

Here's what my guests in 2018 had to say:

"Wow...Our Bali holiday, amazing, wonderful and special. Our hearts are still a flutter with experiences we had.

Paula - thanks a million for being our tour guide and sharing your Bali life with us. We certainly covered some ground. Denpasar to Sanur - yummy food and massage. To Tembok in the east – luxurious beach resort on the coast, with more amazing food, massages and snorkeling. Down the coast to Amed for more snorkeling and relaxing by the pool, then inland to Sideman - unspoilt Bali in a beautiful valley of rice terraces. Across to Ubud for fabulous shopping, markets and bartering, you taught us how it’s done! Back to Sanur, and a stunning day trip down through Kuta to Uluwatu at the bottom.

Lots in between – Volcano’s, swimming, motorbikes, temples, amazing sites, adventures, great food, plenty of cocktails and most of all, fun, laughter and people. We feel privileged that we saw Bali through your eyes as we saw so much more than the usual tourist would.

Everybody asks us, ‘What was the highlight?’ experience and embrace this culture, so different from our own was magical. Bali treated us well. We shall be back!"

I hosted Writing Retreats there in 2015 and 2016 that were so much fun and so productive!

Living in the Bay of Plenty, one of the most beautiful areas of New Zealand, having the stunning Coromandel on my doorstep and knowing some special spots in the Hawkes Bay, Wellington and Wairarapa areas, I'm spoilt for choice in my own country as to where to host my retreats!

It's highly likely they will involve water and sand (I'm a beach gal through and through), with comfortable accommodation and delicious food.

If you want to stay in the know, you know what to do...
