So here goes. I finally made it to Finns Beach Club last weekend, and I’m so proud of myself. It’s located in Berawa Beach, only around 45 minutes from where I live. It is quite a popular place in Bali and yet I choose not to go there. Why? Simply because it takes 45 minutes to get there. In my head it’s too damn far.

It took a push (or is it a pull?) for me to actually find the energy to go there. My best friend came and the only time slots available for both of us was to see him in there before heading to the airport. I haven’t seen him in more than a year or two so I decided to make the effort to go there. Believe me, I tried to persuade him to go to Sanur instead where it would be more convenient for me. But he was with his friends and so he couldn’t be that flexible.

On the way, I was thinking I can’t believe that I have been avoiding to go to the tourist area just because it took more 30 minutes drive. How lazy does that make me seem, whereas my friend had to catch a plane to go to that place. I tell you, I really take for granted the luxury in living in Bali.

I guess that’s how life is. We really need to have someone to pull us out of our routines once in a while. Because we do really need to.
