Selamat Datang and Welcome!
I’m Simone Collins, the founder of Our Year in Bali.
I am so glad we have met on your journey to Bali and I am honoured to be able to help you live your best Bali life!
Initially, this platform came into existence to document our family’s one-year adventure in Bali. However, our profound connection with Bali extended it into a two-year transformative journey that has left a lasting impact on our lives.
My passion for the Bali expat lifestyle led naturally to the creation of a relocation consulting service, offering essential resources not only for families but for anyone contemplating a move.
Before we arrived, we conducted a year of thorough research and visited Bali to explore schools and potential living areas. Despite these efforts, we found that we still lacked a sufficient amount of accurate information and a deep understanding of life in Bali. It took a considerable amount of time residing there, making occasional mistakes, and going through a process of trial and error.
Even if you are well-acquainted with Bali, living here and navigating the intricacies of relocation can be a complex process. That’s where we come in, ready to guide you through the challenges and make your transition smoother, sparing you from the frustration, extended timelines, financial burdens, and unnecessary worries.
Living in a different country had always been a dream of mine, and experiencing it with my family made it extraordinary. After extensive research, Bali quickly emerged as our top choice, meeting all our criteria and offering a vibrant new way of life.
