A lot can happen when you set out to 'find yourself'. Sometimes, you can even lose the plot. From visiting ancient healers with cellphone addictions to leaving a shaking ashram intent on extracting her soul, Becky Wicks soon discovered that six months travelling round Bali wasn't all going to be about finding inner peace and harmony. In fact, the perils of possessed teens, eating raw, yogic headstands, diving shipwrecks and dicing with black magic and demons all took their toll on the Island of the Gods. And that was before the vaginal steaming. Becky Wicks lifts the sarong on real life in Bali in a blur of locals, tourists, expats and other other eating, praying lovers who arrive... you know... not really knowing who they are.

Having traveled to Bali many times myself I found the observations and delightful descriptions spot on regarding this land of contrasts. Becky seems the type that could go any where in the world and make it feel like home.

In my opinion, this book is funny, cleverly & intelligently written, honest (& brave!), informative and really interesting. I love Bali, so I expected a good read, (which it is) but was pleasantly surprised at the environmental information, and thoroughly enjoyed Becky's (at times hilarious) journey of realisation. If you miss the point of "tongue-in-cheek", you'll possibly hate it, but I get it (& nearly choked on my cheese & bikkies at times, it was so funny), so I highly recommend this book and the author. Thanks for sharing, Becky Wicks! I'll definitely be reading more of your stuff!
