Hvis der er noget jeg har gjort rigtig meget i mit liv, så er det at rejse. Jeg har oplevet mange rejser i mit liv, med min familie da jeg voksede op - var det mellem Skandinavien og Asien - pga mine forældre. Da jeg var teenager og S.O.A.P's første single pludselig blev et hit verden over, rejste jeg rundt i hele verden og sang, på scener i byer som jeg ikke engang husker, fordi det var så mange og det var så koncentreret i flere år. Efterfølgende skulle man tro at efter flere år hvor jeg nærmest boede i en kuffert, at rejselysten ligesom havde lagt sig, men det havde det så ikke!! Så jeg rejste videre - en del i USA men mest i Asien. Det trækker simpelthen så meget i mig at rejse syd på, hvorfor ved jeg ikke, nok pga mine gener. Jeg føler mig hjemme... men det er ikke nødvendigvis fordi jeg elsker det mere end andre steder i verden, det nok bare en 'vane' og en naturlighed, at jeg i hvertfald oplever Asien minimum en gang om året, fordi jeg lige skal 'hjem' og vende...

Nå men for at komme til min pointe, som i nok har fattet nu; jeg har rejst rigtig meget, og oplevet mange fede, specielle, lækre og også dyre steder. Så det er fedt når jeg stadig kan blive 'blown away' og opdage nye steder som gør indtryk på mig. Villa Sungai er helt klart ikke noget alle kan eller får mulighed for, selvom jeg ville ønske at alle kunne få lov at opleve smukke oase...


If there’s anything I’ve done a lot in my life, it is definitely travelling. I’ve experienced many voyages in my life; with my family growing up, it was between Scandinavia and Asia, because of my parents. When I was a teenager and S.O.A.P’s first single suddenly became a worldwide hit, I travelled all over the world whilst singing and performing on stages in cities I don’t even remember; there were so many and it was so hectic for multiple years. Although you would think after years of pretty much living in a suitcase my love for travelling would kind of zimmer down, it didn't at all! So I continued travelling; a lot in the US, but even more in Asia. Something about travelling south simply just draws me in, I don’t know why, but I suspect my genes have a say in it. I just feel home. It is not necessarily because I love the South more than other areas of the world, I think it’s just a matter of habit and comfort that I visit Asia at least once a year, you know, just to return to “home” for a while.

Anyways, my point, which you’ve probably caught onto by now, is that I’ve travelled a LOT. I’ve experienced many beautiful, special, and also luxury places, so it feels great when I can still be blown away and explore new places which have lasting impact on me. Villa Sungai is really not a place anyone can or will get the chance to see, even though I wish it would be that way. Everyone deserves the chance to see an oasis as gorgeous as this one.


Villa Sungai består af 2 private luksus villaer, som hovedsageligt bliver booket til bryllupper, homeymoons eller andre specielle arrangementer. Den ene villa Sungai Gold har 2 soveværelser og er halv så stor arealmæssig end som Villa Sungai med 3 soveværelser. Men Sungai Gold er lidt mere intim og henvender sig til kærlighedsparret. Mange som booker stedet, tager nogle gange også begge villaer til feks en hel familie som rejser sammen. Det er ideelt hvis man f.eks rejser 3 par sammen, at booke Villa Sungai istedet for at booke sig ind på et hotel. Det er selvfølgelig ikke en helt billig tur, men du kan se mere om priserne her


Villa Sungai consists of 2 private luxury villas, which can be booked for weddings, honeymoons or other special events. One of the villas, Sungai Gold, has two bedrooms and is half the size of the other, Villa Sungai, which has 3 bedrooms. Sungai Gold is more intimate and definitely appeals to the couple in love. Many of those who book the place also book both of the villas, in order to house for example an entire family, travelling together.

It is especially ideal for e.g. a group of couples, perhaps 3, to book Villa Sungai, instead of a hotel. Naturally, it isn’t exactly a “cheap” trip, but you can check out the prices for yourself right here. A good idea is to book it in the low season as it get affordable;)

Indgangen til Master Bedroom hvor jeg havde fornøjelsen af at overnatte 3 nætter med mine 2 drenge. Selvom der er plads nok, så sover de bedst når de sover med mig, og jeg syntes bare det hyggeligt. Vi har jo kun dem til låns, ligeom lidt gider de mig ikke længere, og så vil jeg savne den tid jeg kunne få lov at sove i samme seng med dem;)

The entrance of the master bedroom in which I had the pleasure of staying for 3 nights, with my two boys. Even though there is plenty of space, they both sleep better in my bed, and I just think it’s nice, so I’m not complaining. We do only have them for a little while, it won’t be long until they won’t want to hang out with their mom anymore and I will be missing the times where I still got to sleep in the same bed as my two babies ;)

Værelserne er dejlige rummelige, og Villa Sungai har indrettet det i ægte Balinesisk stil. Lækre robuste møbler, senge og kæmpe skabe, lavet af massivt træ. Jeg er vild med det og syntes det er så gennemført lækkert. Jeg ville ønske jeg kunne købe en hel masse her og få fragtet hjem i en container herfra.

The rooms are nice and spacious, and Villa Sungai have decorated them in a real Balinese manor. Nice robust furniture, beds and closets, made of solid trees. I love it! It is so well put together and pleasing to look at. I wish I could buy

Udendørs bad med både brusebad og kæmpe karbad. Drengene havde selvfølgelig en skum fest💦

Outdoor shower including both a regular shower and a huge bathtub. The boys of course had a bubble-fest

Til børnefamilier er der tænkt på legetøj til børnene. Der findes masser af badeudstyr også. Derudover er der et lille værelse hvor anlægget står, 2 hylder fyldt med bøger og spil. Så selvom der ikke er meget i nærheden af dette helt fantastiske sted - og måske nogle ville være bange for at kede sig - så er der stadig lidt af hvert;)

For children’s families they have thoroughly thought about the toys. There are loads of beach toys, like inflatable animals, as well. Furthermore, there is a little room with a stereo alongside two shelves all filled up with books to read games to play. Even though it may placed in a quite isolated area, maybe some would even be scared to feel bored, I still believe there are many options of things to do here.

Udover at alt bare er i sit helt rette element, så bliver jeg nødt til at komme ind på maden. Menukortet er stort. Selv hvis man er her en uge eller længere tid, så bliver du ikke træt af køkkenet og de ting som de servere til morgen, middag og aftensmad. Det smager simpelthen så lækkert. Hem der end står i køkkenet, har styr på det, og det er så smagfuldt, at den eneste ulempe er, at jeg er gået SÅ mæt i seng hver eneste nat - og tror jeg har taget nogle kilo på, haha - det var jo ikke meningen... Men det smager simplethen så godt.


As if it wasn't already perfect, I just have to tell you about the food here. The menu is huge; even if you ate here for breakfast, lunch and dinner, for more than a week, you probably wouldn’t get tired of it. It’s just that delicious.

Whoever stands in the kitchen, knows what they're doing, and the only fault I can point out is the fact that it is so tasty I end up overeating and thereby go to bed way too full every evening. I think I might just have gained a couple of pounds, and that wasn’t really the goal here, haha.

What can I say? The food is just too good!

Som underholdning til middagen, spillede de 2 herre, på nogle traditionelle Balinesiske instrumenter lavet af Bambus træ. Jeg er vild med den lyd, og den måde de spiller på. Og jeg er HELT vild med, hvordan de går op i at optræde og 'fortælle' os en historie med deres traditioner - det syntes jeg ikke rigtig jeg helt kan komme i tanke om at vi gør på samme måde, vel??

As entertainment for the dinner, these to men played some traditional balinese instruments made of bamboo, for us. I love the way the it sounds, and the way it looks when they play it. What I love even more is the fact that they put great effort into telling us a story with their arts and traditions, which is something we don’t really do in Denmark the same way, am I right?

Sean fik lov til at spille lidt. Det minder vel egentlig aller mest om en Xylofon - heldigvis lidt en anden klang og lyd!

Sean was allowed to play a little as well. I guess you could say the instrument resembles a xylophone most of all, but it does have a very special and different sound to it!

Jeg bærer en kjole og bælte fra Rabens Saloner - lidt dansk og balinesisk på en gang. Rabens Saloner er en dansk designer, men hun laver alle print og materialer her på Bali, og bor her det meste af året. Drengene har igen et af vores favorit børnemærker på fra Someday Soon

I’m wearing a dress and a belt from Rabens Saloner - a little Danish and Balinese all at once. The creator of Rabens Saloner is a danish designer, but she creates/curates all her prints and materials here in Bali, and lives here for the majority of the year.

The boys are wearing clothes from one of our favourite children’s brands Someday Soon

Her er så smukt, at jeg kunne tage billeder her hver dag...

Its so beautiful here..., i could photograph this place every day...

Først tænkte jeg meget over om drengene mon ville kede sig lidt her i midten af ingenting, men Sean vil ikke afsted herfra, og Dexter hopper i poolen som det første når han vågner og det sidste inden han sover;) De har ikke kedet sig et øjeblik, og vi har total nydt det, og hinanden her...

In the beginning I worried that the boys would get bored here, kind of in the middle of nowhere, but Sean says he doesn’t wanna leave, and Dexter jumps in the pool first thing in the morning and last thing in the evening, every day. They haven’t felt bored for a minute here, and we have thoroughly enjoyed the place and each other’s company

Elsker at klæde drengene ens på..., og heldigvis syntes Sean selv det er cute;) haha... Her med badebukser fra SmallRags

I love dressing up the boys in matching clothes, and luckily my son Sean also agrees that it’s cute ;) Here they are wearing swimming trunks from SmallRags

Jeg har kimono fra Unmade , bukser fra Noa Noa , de mest behagelige sko på fra Ilse Jacobsen, og trøje fra FreePeople

I’m wearing a kimono from Unmade , pants from Noa Noa , and the most comfortable shoes from Ilse Jacobsen, as well as a shirt from FreePeople

Min kæreste sendte mig blomster på Valentines. Blomster er altid smukke, nogle gange mere end andre. Det du ser her er den måde man binder blomster på i Asien. Går du ind og vælger ud til en buket, og beder dem binde dem, får du dem altså ikke langstilket retur, så ser de sådan her ud, haha.... Det er heldigvis tanken der tæller...😊

My boyfriend sent me flowers on Valentines. Flowers are always beautiful, but sometimes less then others. What you see here is the Asian way of arranging flowers. If you ask a florist here in Asia to arrange a bouquet for you, you won’t get them with long stems .. this is what you’ll get, haha. Anyways, it’s the thought that counts

Der er mange ting man gør, fordi man elsker at gøre sine børn glade.... Vandland er f.eks en af dem, haha. Det er jo helt vildt grineren at rejse til den anden side af jorden for at tage i vandland. men altså, jeg har altid elsket at være aktive med mine drenge. jeg elsker at de får en på opleveren, jeg elsker når de er glade og jeg ved det ikke er kedeligt hjemme hos os, for Sean har altid oplevet rigtig meget...

Many things you do to make your children happy… Waterparks are one of them, haha. It’s great fun travelling to the other side of the world to explore waterparks, but I mean, it’s a given since I’ve always loved being active with my boys. I love the fact that they get to experience things, and I of course love seeing them having fun and enjoying themselves. I do know though, that it is never boring in our home; Sean has been lucky enough to experience many great things throughout his life already.

Anyways, så ligger Canggu Club ca. 15 min fra villaen, ned igennem byen hvor der er liv og kultur, og så til en meget international vibe, med vandland, fodboldbaner, bowlinghal, trampolinhal og meget mere.... Vi havde en mega fed og aktiv dag, Vi fik prøvet alle de store slides, og givet den godt gas.. og mit mor-hjerte ved de kommer til at sove så lækkert hele natten.... yay...

Canggu Club is just about 15 minutes away from the villa - a walk through the city where there is liveliness and culture, and then on to a completely different more international vibe, with the waterpark, football fields, a bowling alley, and a hall of trampolines, etc.

We had a fun and active day: we tried all the big slides and put in all the energy we had! My “mommy heart” knows they’re gonna sleep so well all night tonight … yay ..

Min dejlige veninde, joinede os sammen med sin datter i går. Simone og jeg blev bedste veninder i 5. klasse i næstved. Vi har en lang historie, og mange oplevelser og rejser sammen. Jeg syntes det er så skønt at vi har kunne dele så meget, og selvom vi ikke altid ser hinanden - i perioder slet ikke - så er rigtige venskaber bare bygget på den måde at når man først ses, er det som om man aldrig har været fra hinanden, og samler op hvor man efterlod det sidst... Der er ikke noget jeg ikke kan sige, ikke noget jeg ikke tør være eller noget jeg skal holde igen når jeg er sammen med hende - jeg kan være fuldstændig mig selv, og det er så rart med dem som kender en på godt og ondt.
Min smukke nederdel er fra Munthe og mine sko som er lidt svære at spotte er et par tykke hæle fra Gardenia . Toppen er American Apparel.

My lovely friend Simone, and her daughter, joined me and the boys yesterday. Her and I became best friends in fifth grade, in my home town in Denmark. We have a long history together, and have shared many memories and journeys together. I just love how we have been able to share so much throughout life, together, and even though we don’t always see each other often; real friendships just work in a way that allows you to be apart for long periods of time, while still having that special connection when you reunite. No matter what, when we see each other, it feels like we were never apart. We simply pick up where we left off.

There are no inhibitions with her. I can do and say whatever I want in her presence, I don’t have to hold anything back. I can be me completely, and that is such a blessing; to have those people who know both your good sides as well as the bad.

My beautiful skirt is from Munthe and my shoes, even though they are a bit difficult to spot here, are a pair of chunky boots from Gardenia. The top is American Apparel.

Sidste aften på Villa Sungai og de havde dækket det fineste bord, og serverede det lækreste mad til os... Jeg kommer til at tænke tilbage på denne her oplevelse som intet andet end fantastisk. Jeg vil savne det, og drømme mig tilbage.. Der er ingen tvivl om at jeg gerne vil retur... Hvis jeg skulle på Honeymoon, ville det være et fantastisk spot at være i kærlighedsbobbelen med min mand <3

Last evening at Villa Sungai, and they had set the prettiest table and served us the most delicious food. I know ill look back on this trip as nothing less than fantastic. I’ll miss it and dream my way back every once in a while .. No doubt, I’d love to return any given day. If I were to go on a honeymoon, this would be the most amazing spot to be, in a love bubble, with my man … <3
