    Hi, I am really wanting to plan a girls trip for me & my two friends, we are coming from tennessee and dont know where to start to plan the trip. (what flights to take, language barriers, etc.) We have an airbnb picked out but wanting advice for flying!

      Hi Katie! In my experience, many people in Bali (especially where the major tourism destinations are) tend to speak a little bit of English. Further out, not so much, but locals have been very friendly. As for flights, it totally depends on if you’re going for ones that are as budget-conscious or the one that gets you there the quickest. Using Google Flights and/or Kayak are great resources.

      I would imagine you might have a layover in NYC or LAX from Tennessee and then likely somewhere else international like Hong Kong before going into Bali. As a heads up, it will be A LONG travel day (potentially close to a day and a half or even two, so keep that in mind — this is because of the layovers and no direct flights from TN).

    Love your tips! thank you for sharing. I would love to come to BALI one day. I’ve heard so much great things about this wonderful destination.

🚨 Now sharing all of my favorite hotels in one spot! 🚨
I have thousands of articles on my travel blog, which is great, but can understandably feel overwhelming if you’re looking for something specific like hotel recommendations.

Which is why I’m super excited to let you know that I created a Travel Shop on the Expedia App where I’ll be sharing curated Collections from my travels to over 75 countries, with my favorite hotel stays, my own bucket list hotels, and getaway recommendations like “the best hotels for a girlfriend getaway”.

It’s so easy to navigate — you can book directly from the Expedia App or save to your profile for a future trip.

I’m working on adding Collections for everywhere I’ve traveled, so be sure to bookmark my Expedia Travel Shop so you can easily reference all of my hotel recommendations in one place.

I’m so excited to share that @the_baby_abroad family travel blog is now live! 👶🏼✈️
I’ll be sharing countless articles addressing the most common travel questions I got throughout my pregnancy, Oliver’s early travels, and now that he’s a BUSY toddler.

Of course, I’ll also be sharing all of my tips for flying with a little one, airline reviews (with kids in mind), comprehensive travel guides on the destinations we’ve traveled as a family, honest product reviews, and everything in between.

But what I’m most excited about is that this will be a community resource with tons of guest authors. Raising a child is such a unique experience for every family, and I personally love to see how ALL types of families travel.

My hope is that The Baby Abroad will become a resource that represents all types of families exploring the world with their kids at every stage of life.
I couldn’t be more excited about this new adventure, and I hope you’ll follow along @the_baby_abroad! #thebabyabroad
