Travelling Indonesia The Non-Tourist Way ♥ Boho Diaries | Ep.8 Flores Island

it’s the experience that we get to Have a memory this creates with our loved ones That’s what really life is all about because you see these people in these villages who are happy and they’re just there with their families their children and there’s just the simplicity and happiness to it, so Cherish your loved ones cherish the time you have a planet and experience so the time has come [and] We’re leaving indonesia Unfortunately our Visa has run up, and we gotta go so we’re here in Maumere, Flores Its our last day in indonesia and we’re off to Malaysia and Hoping to probably go to an Island called Borneo, which we heard is a little bit more raw beautiful and less Traveled than other islands in Malaysia that which is something that we’re constantly constantly seeking I Think it’s been pretty much one of the best months of my life a lot of ways really hard and really wonderful And I feel that kind of has been our kind of theme in During the time spent in indonesia. Is that coming to Ubud first and realizing how crazy and insane that City was Getting away from the crazy traffic of motorbikes. You know we started traveling to gili Air and then in their place to other islands and now we’re in Flores [Island] right now which honestly has been such an Incredible place And we started moving went to lombok and then we went to Kuta. We got on our boat It about all over the place And I felt like we were running from something and this is sinking feeling like is this whole thing [just] about getting away People are just so incredibly nice here This Island has so much untouched beauty to it And I think that is something that we’ve been searching for is that kind of untouched feeling? Islands here in the beaches here have way less plastic than anywhere else that we’ve been which a very sad thing [to] say that a [beach] has the less plastics and other beaches can’t believe I’m even talking about that But that’s the reality of things these [days] is that every single Beach out there is polluted with trash and plastics from human being so We’re destroying our planet people gotta do something about it You’re going be trekking today but it is hard, but hiking up Climbed to the top of the Mountain and it was worth it You know when we got here to Flores Energy for me from the Earth and from the people [and] from the water everything it was so special And finally look at each other We’re like three four weeks into our trip and we finally feel [like] we made it to where we wanted And that that maybe we start asking questions about. What is it were actually looking for and that’s when it hit me We’re not running from anything were Running to something I saw these Children playing the other day, and they’re playing with no shoes on and they’re so happy like they’re just jumping around this weird rock they Don’t have any toys. You know [they’re] They had some weird sticks they were playing with or something and it really Brought a lot of memories to me because I know we haven’t really shared our past on Youtube yet And I’m sure mark, and I will do something a little bit more detailed to kind of you know tell you guys where we come [from] for those of you that are interested in learning about our history [and] [our] past but for me personally I was born in Siberia in Russia a very small Village in Siberia and my parents actually ended up moving to ukraine and that’s where I ended up growing up and at the age of 10 my Family my mom my dad my brother we ended up immigrating to Vancouver Canada So I spent you know the first [10] years of my childhood living in this Village in ukraine a very small small Village and In the life that we had in ukraine it was very Special and when I see these children Playing I can’t help but have like Nostalgia and memories come back to me when I was little Living and growing up in the ukraine it just kind of made me realize [that] We and you know in North America We sometimes think that you know as we get money and for us to be happy we have to buy the newest iphone and we need to Give our children all the newest toys and gadgets and all this stuff [now] we don’t need people don’t need stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff stuff things to make yourself happy and I think about home In that sense of home and yeah, [Toronto’s] not home anymore And I think it was only home because I needed a place to call home. I felt like I needed something Something that would make me [feel] Like I have a place And then I think I’m coming is starting to come to grips with the [idea] that you don’t need to have a place just need be comfortable with yourself in this existence and this life sometimes maybe we should just step take a step back and think about what you really need and How [can] you bring happiness into your lives without having to go and spend money on it? [you] know sometimes the real happiness is taking your family to a park and having a picnic and Just spending time together and creating memories together doesn’t have to be Anything to do with money or spending money? Mark, and I’ve always had [a] weird thing about Valentine’s day It’s a holiday that people create it So you could buy more things you don’t need a day to tell someone you love them by buying them The latest necklace like just tell them [that] you love them Spend time with them spend quality time with them. That’s real love that. That’s the true connection of human being and not Thing that in a year will be worthless to you, or you’ll one upgrade it or make it better Now people keep saying online Oh, you guys are on a spiritual journey, and I kind of I don’t really understand what that means a spiritual journey but It’s starting to become clear that We are seeking we’re not leaving We are learning and growing as these things fall away from So we saw some dragons they’re crazy Guide is a incredibly casual You’re like trying to get a saw some Deer, Pigs saw three Komodo dragons with their tongues Now is something you can poke a hole in in this life or in Someone else and or in yourself, and that served me down some dark loads throughout my time poking holes in my own hypocrisy But you know i gotta focus And we all have to focus on the things we’re doing right and the things that we’re doing that are good and each day Saying what can I do today that will make me a little bit better than I i was yesterday Physically mentally our impact Our footprints that we’re leaving behind the energy or we’re putting our energy into What job we work? And what we’re doing after the job To balance ourselves out because lord knows sitting at a desk and staring at a computer screen if we’re doing any of us any good If we do it for 12 hours a day, I guess I’m really passionate Maybe that’s what’s happened. Something’s woken inside of me. I got some shit to do And this is all Coming to an end when we’re finding our place And find our place to call home again There’s a lot. I [need] you that I haven’t done But I love it I love the people place [with] everything in this country if you get a chance to come to Indonesia you do Don’t just go to bali experience more Experience in all that you do and I’m starting to understand how [that] experience Can give you a little bit of space and a little bit of perspective? to reflect And then it will change What you put out to the world? its a beautiful feeling This country is beautiful this country is unbelievable it has taught us a lot and has tested us a lot but it’s been a beautiful experience so now we’re [offering] to Malaysia and stay tuned Sometimes we’ve just got to stop all the noise And just let [herself] feel it’s really really important Something I’m really really learning

  13. I like these types of videos you're doing! Ones where we see more of the place you're at, the people and how that place touched and challenged your lives and the impact you made and want to make! Keep doing more like these, I like seeing the locals and more about their lives and how it's challenged your lives.

    Lots of love

  14. I usually consider myself to be pretty personal with myself and my thoughts and emotions, however I have just felt so compelled lately to let you guys know how much you have impacted my life. Watching your videos and listening to everything you both have to say, literally sets my soul on fire. Your lives are exactly what I hope mine will one day embody. You continue to inspire me every time you post a new video. I can't get enough. Thank you so much for putting this journey of yours on youtube. I will forever be grateful for this channel and the beauty of your souls. Continue to grace the earth and be a light in every life you come in contact with. I hope to be as amazing as you both one day. Thank you and may all the blessings come your way. Namaste. xoxoxo

  18. Your videos inspire me so much.They give me energy,healing and motivation.Thank you so much for everything you do.You are incredible.I wish to you and your husband total realization of your dreams.Вітання з України;)

  19. You guys are asking yourselves so many questions…for me happiness is when you are where you want to be and just live instead of thinking too much about what happiness is…. It sometimes feel like you are lecturing us a bit about happiness, but you don't give me the impression that you have it yet. In any case, good luck for your quest! my advice would be, look less for happiness and think less, just be more present and you will find it

  20. Spiritual Journey – you're trying to find yourselves and your purpose on earth as am I. We'll get there! Thank you for sharing your journey and keep enjoying it!

  21. wow, that's crazy, cuz im from Ukraine and i had been living in small town for 14 years because of the current war. And now i live in Odessa, one of the largest cities of Ukraine, and just now i can realize how happy i was in that small town, where everyone knows each other and ready to help you anytime. You have to appreciate the things that surround you at the moment, even if you think you're fed up

Большое спасибо за ваши видео, совершенно случайно я нашла вас и с тех пор часто занимаюсь по твоим видео, хотя сама преподаю йогу для беременных.

  36. Your videos are so soothing and beautiful and I thank you for sharing your life wth me, and for helping me be a better version of myself. Safe travels and good vibes. ❤️

  38. Hope you find your paths to the real you?thank you for
    creating the videos it's so touching and inspiring xxx do whatever the heart saying not the brain? you will be amazed !

  39. well so happy that u enjoy your time in indonesia..make sure that indonesia is one of ur destination place next time since here we still alot of islands to be explored n lots of beaches to be visitted.?

  40. Beautiful video Mark & Juliana ??. Thanks for sharing your trip to those beautiful islands. Let me know if you are traveling to Jakarta on your next trip to Indonesia.

  41. Well this video is so beautiful. You guys bring peace and harmony with every video post. Nature at its best. Thank you God for all the beauty of nature

  42. YES @Vivi Kal I am also sitting here in tears and with such a full, hopeful heart for the New Year. Julianna and Mark you are both such incredible lights to my husband and I. Please keep seeking, exploring and sharing your journey! You are inspiring so many of us to do the same in our lives as well as love the earth and the people around us more each and everyday.

  43. I LOVE that you included images of all the plastic you've seen washing up on the beach. Its so easy to romanticize south east Asia on social media and create an image of a world that is untouched by our damaging lifestyles which does not exist!

  44. Loved this video! I'd already seen it a few times (yes I can rewatch your diaries over and over) but now I've booked a ticket to Bali and want to see Flores too. Can't wait to have the same beautiful experience as you guys had there. Love the fact it's less crowded as Bali and more real. Will let you guys know how it was! Keep up the great work, love you xxx

  45. I'm incredibly touched by the way you talk about your experiences. Really touching story. Thanks for letting me be part of your journey of life.

    P. S: Is it possible to get a list of the music used in this vid?

  46. I'm from Indonesia and I just explored Flores last month and it was really as beautiful as seen in this video. Your videos are such an inspiration, it makes me want to explore the earth and really connects with my surroundings. Keep inspiring a lot of people! Sending love all the way from Indonesia xx

  47. Before anybody starts bashing me, read my whole statement. I had a friend send me a link to Boho Beautiful saying "Oh my god what a babe, she is perfect and does these sexy yoga exercises you gotta check it out. " Well I am 64 and don't seem to get all excited about stuff like this anymore, so I went to see this site and found out something very important! Once you start watching these videos you are drawn in by the peaceful attitude and tranquil nature of this beautiful couple. Yes, she is beautiful but even more on the inside and after a while you just see her for what she is and not how she looks. She is for real, a great teacher very calming and very fit. What a great example for women and girls to follow, living healthy and practical teaching that material stuff comes and goes like the tides. I have traveled all of my life, a true wanderlust and I found out that the idea of meeting new people and going to places I have not been to are what truely make life so wonderful. I don't have to buy stuff while traveling to remind me of where I have been. I too have met the 14th Dalai Lama and what a blessing that meeting was for me as I am sure it was for you both. What a wonderful man he is. His spiritual and earthly nature is beyond words. He wears no mitre or has no need for one.

    You two are fantastic and I would love to meet them someday. Carry on and keep dreaming and "living" a life worth mentioning. I send you my hopes and wishes as you find new adventures and places in your journies. Always and sincerely , Me

  48. You are amazing! I like your videos! !!! And the places where you are. Keep going like that. You give me force 2 make a nice yoga. Tank you

  49. I just love you both SOOO MUCH!!! can't be more thankful to you for being so inspiring and actually sharing this incredible journey your having!

  50. I gotta say I grew up poor too& I COMPLETELY AGREE you don't need stuff to be happy ? I love what u said in this video. I'm not materialistic @ all. Time & your heart are priceless
