About the Author

Amazon best-selling author Kate Benzin is originally from Chicago, but started moving around immediately after college. She is a seasoned traveler who has lived in Indonesia since 1982 because she found that Indonesia gave her the kind of adventurous life that she had been seeking. So she stayed and taught English for 14 years.

When Kate needed a new direction in her working life, she became a tour director, a job which fed her love of travel and allowed her to continue living in Indonesia while working all over the world - Russia, Spain, China, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Finland, France and more.

Kate now spends most of her time writing in her home/office just north of Yogyakarta in Central Java which she shares with her three Dalmatians. In her first book How To Find The Heart Of Bali, she shares insights that she gained during her many visits to Bali. In her second book Transformative Travel in Nepal: Fulfilling a Dream in the Himalayas, she describes the challenges she faced in fulfilling her lifelong dream of trekking in the Himalayan Mountains.

Kate is currently working on her next books: Modern Nomad for people who would like to travel long-term and The Trans-Siberia Express Train: Moscow to Mongolia in which she shares her experiences on this iconic train journey as well as what she learned along the way.

I recently read another book by Kate Benzin ~ Transformative Travel: One Person's Journey to Fulfill a Dream and loved it. So I decided to buy How to Find the Heart of Bali. First, Kate is very clear that this is not a guide book. It's filled with extensive information that a friend would give another about what it's like to visit Bali. I think the title is very apt ~ the book is about finding the heart of Bali.

There's information about when to travel to Bali, how long to stay, safety, food, immunizations, shopping, haggling, spas, cell phones, scams to avoid, drugs,what to wear, what not to miss. And there's more!

There's also information about the friendly Balinese people and their culture. I found the section on festivals and rituals really fascinating. Indonesia is Muslim but the people of Bali follow Hinduism. Kate also provides snapshot information for many of the towns in Bali to not miss.

In the back there's a sample itinerary, a list of consulates,a list of 24 hour hospitals and a list of clinics where English is spoken.

Last but definitely not least ~ the photographs are numerous and beautiful.

This is a great travel book that really does give you a feel for the heart of Bali.

What a great job Ms. Benzin did on describing Bali. Her short and concise book really makes me want to go NOW. I loved her explanation of the different festivals, and especially the life cycle events.

I bought this book thinking it would give me a nice insight into Bali. I have been there before, and I can tell you I know more info then the author has presented here.
It is really just a brochure. Sorry to give such a bad review, but it was a waste of money.
Just go and enjoy this beautiful island.

Well, the book is pretty basic. She does give good advice to a person who maybe has never travelled anywhere. But most people who have travelled know about visas, etc. So, I guess for a newbie it would be okay

Reading this book is easy because it's like having a conversation with a local about the place she knows and loves. It gives you enough practical information to make you more eager than ever to plan a trip to Bali. Thanks to this book I now have specific things I will do on this island and I know how to do them. Especially intriguing for shoppers are the step by step bargaining hints.

The content here is meager and very general .You will gain the same information by reading the introduction to any guide book that you are probably going to look at prior to your visit. This book brings nothing to the party. I feel it was a waste of money.

A good summary of what to expect when traveling to Bali. I had Kate as a tour guide to the Baltic States, Helsinki and Russia and she was fabulous. This book will give you a good basis to decide if you want to travel to Bali. I am definitely interested in going more after reading this book.
