I'm still in denial that summer is over even though classes started a few weeks ago. Summer is my season, always has been. I live for those super hot days and vacations of course. Right after I took my finals during the spring semester, my mom and I jet-setted to Indonesia. Crazy right? Being in Minnesota it was still a bit cold in May and I was ready to leave the continent.

First order of business was to visit my mom's cousin in Jakarta, Indonesia. We stayed in a cute and tiny hotel near the major shopping district and I was surprised to see stores that weren't even in my city. The heat was getting to be too much so we flew off to Bali, just an hour flight away. This happened to be the best decision we made. I was in awe. From the architecture, to the lush landscape and stunning beaches. I even tried surfing for the first time!
