We imagine some of you might be more visual learners (we know we certainly are). Well, if you’re having trouble grasping the otherworldly appeal of either Bali or Myanmar, we have some eye candy for you. In honor of the Oscars this past weekend, we decided it would be the perfect opportunity to give a shout-out to two epic short travel films that you won’t be able to stop watching.

Month In Myanmar

We are ready to hop on a plane! These ladies make Myanmar look cozy and sumptuous. Good thing AmaWaterways has just launched their Myanmar itinerary, who does an equally golden job of touring through this tiny but powerful country.

Lost in a Dream: Bali

Next, check out the Wanderable couple behind Hiishii Creative who spent months living their dream life in Bali and masterfully documenting their adventures. Their free-wheeling, surf-all-day-dance-all-night philosophy is infectious! And if you’re dreaming about Bali, may we recommend Alexa Private Cruises, who are featured in the video (how can you not love that majestic boat at the 2:05 mark?!).

This is the creme de la creme of cruise getaways, a once in a lifetime experience that will redefine what travel means to you. First of all, boarding the yacht is akin to something out of a Hemingway novel. It is designed down to the last detail, and it feels kind of magical from the moment you step on deck. Oh, and, did we mention, you’ll be the only guests? That’s right, it’s a private yacht for two that includes seafood barbeques, spa therapy and pro diving.

Perhaps these films will ignite your wanderlust. Or if you’re planning to travel, perhaps they’ll spark an idea for documenting your trip. At the very least, peek in the windows of other worlds and learn about these far-off lands.

Oh, and add travel to your to-do list.

All Aboard: Alexa Private Cruises is the epitome of luxury travel

Let us begin by emphasizing this is no ordinary blog post– you’ve been warned: We’ve gone ahead and outlined the creme de la creme of cruise & spa getaways, a once in a lifetime experience that will redefine what travel means to you… and in a location you probably haven’t considered before: Indonesia.

Here are 5 reasons to honeymoon in Indonesia

1. Alexa Private Cruises: First of all, this earthy and majestic yacht is akin to something out of a Hemingway novel or maybe even Peter Pan. The magical feeling that fills the air is contagious from the moment you step on deck.  Oh, and, did we mention, you’ll be the only guests? That’s right, it’s a private yacht for two that includes seafood barbeques, expert spa therapy and pro diving instructions at gorgeous points in Flores & Raja Ampat. Mmmm. What more could you ask for?!

2.  You’ll get cultured: This archipelago in Southeast Asia is the second most biodiverse country in the world (narrowly beat by Brazil); it’s known for its rich history of Buddhist and Hindu Kingdoms, and has a reputation for being extremely kind. Also, the beaches are literally to die for. How could you ever resist this perfect honeymoon oasis?

3. Oazia Spa Villas: it is an oasis reminiscent of traveling to a different planet. Billowy fabrics catch the wind as you inhabit indoor/outdoor pods for various spa treatments offered from all over the world (sounds pretty incredible, am I right?!). With its three total villas, you will have complete privacy and freedom to get centered and one with the universe, and will leave with a newfound zen. #Namaste, Wanderers!

4. The Coffee: One local treat to look out for while in Indonesia, perhaps on par with the prestige of Alexa Cruises & Oazia Spa Villas, is Kopi lukas coffee. To make the coffee, the palm civet, a cat-sized mammal, is fed coffee berries. After the berries pass through its system, the action of the civet’s stomach enzymes gives the coffee an unrivaled richness of flavor without any of the usual bitterness. As a result, Kopi luwak is the world’s most expensive beverage, costing around $1,000 per pound. If not now, we ask, then when?

5.  Alexa Private Cruises and Oazia Spa Villas is a marvelous, indulgent, all-inclusive voyage.  It’s our ultimate ode to romance, and the most delicious way to explore the islands of Indonesia. This voyage is probably unlike any other trip you or anyone you know has taken or will take. But isn’t that what a honeymoon is supposed to be? Doesn’t love deserve that kind of nod? We think so. After all, what are we but a collection of our experiences…?

Basically….
