Jessica Johnston

Jessica Johnston is a travel blogger and digital nomad with an endless love for travel and photography. Her Instagram community, @backpackwithme, was created in 2016 after her backpacking adventures throughout Southeast Asia, and for the past two years she has been on the road with her partner, chasing new adventures and fulfilling a never-ending bucket list.


Ubud: Famously known for its ancient temples, lush rice terraces, and gorgeous waterfall hikes, Ubud has quickly become a major bucket-list destination.

Nusa Islands: Just off the southeast coast of Bali, these islands offer some of the most beautiful and iconic views in all of Indonesia, including the infamous Kelingking ‘T-Rex’ viewpoint.

Canggu: With its chill, laid-back beach vibes and amazing cafes, Canggu is the ideal spot to relax and unwind.

Uluwatu: Uluwatu is the perfect mix of culture, adventure, and beauty with its cliff-side temples, surfer vibes, and vibrant sunsets over the ocean.

Your first day in Bali will be spent relaxing in beautiful Ubud where we will hang out pool-side, feast on amazing Balinese food, and quickly become best friends!

Arrival: Festivities start in Ubud at 6pm. Fly into Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS).

Included: Welcome dinner & happy hour

Our first full day will be spent with amazing photo ops at the Sacred Monkey Forest and at the Bali tree-top swings. You will then have some down-time to relax and explore the beauty of Ubud on your own before our first workshop of the trip!

Included: Sacred Monkey Forest Entry

Workshop (included): Planning for a backpacking trip

This will be a magical day full of natural beauty as we explore some of the greenest landscapes you’ll ever see! Our morning will be spent wandering the serene fields of the Tegallalang Rice Terraces, and then onto a waterfall expedition where we will take a hike to some of the most amazing falls in the area - Tegenungan Waterfall and Tibumana Waterfall.

Goodbye Ubud, Hello Nusa Islands! We’re heading over to a picture-perfect island: Nusa Lembongan. If you love turquoise waters and jaw-dropping sunsets, then you'll fall head over heels for Nusa Lembongan's Dream Beach and Devil's Tear.

Included: Transportation to Nusa islands

Workshop (included): How to build your Instagram

If you're in the mood for another day full of adventure, then today will knock your socks off (or flip-flops - whatever floats your boat!). You have the option to join us on a day trip over to Nusa Penida, where we'll be visiting the iconic ‘T-Rex’ Kelingking Beach, Atuh Beach, and other infamous spots. But if you're feeling like you need a day of rest, feel free to have the day to yourself on Nusa Lembongan!

Nusa Ceningan is the smallest of the 3 Nusa Islands, yet some say the coolest! We'll be crossing Yellow Bridge and heading over to some dreamy spots like Secret Beach and Blue Lagoon - both of which definitely live up to their names.

Who doesn't love turquoise water? The Blue Lagoon on Nusa Ceningan is quite possibly the most beautiful water you will ever see in your life. We will spend the afternoon exploring its beauty before our final workshop of the trip.

Workshop (included): Travel photography tips & tricks

We’ll be hopping on a boat back to the mainland to explore the stunning cliffside town of Uluwatu. Uluwatu features a perfect blend of culture, natural beauty, and chill vibes, so today you will have the choice of either exploring Uluwatu Temple or heading to the beach to catch some waves! We'll then head to Canggu for our final leg of the trip.

Included: Transportation to Uluwatu

Canggu is the ideal spot to hang out and unwind, so we’re leaving this day completely free for you to hit the beach, learn to surf, head to Tanah Lot Temple, or do whatever you like!

Thanks for coming, until next time!

Departure: Fly out of Ngurah Rai International Airport (DPS).

All of our trips include accommodations, transportation between cities and a number of activities relevant to the theme of the trip you're joining us on! Most of our hotels also include breakfast, but that varies by destination. We'll also bring a trip Ambassador to guide you through your experience as well as include all kinds of recommendations for every leg of your trip. Welcome to a better way to see the world while learning new skills!
Flights are not included. Need airline assistance? Email us at hi@trovatrip.com and we’ll help get you what you need.
Excursions and tours vary trip to trip. Refer to the trip itinerary to see which activities are included. We’ll send recommendations for optional experiences leading up to the trip as well. Prices vary depending on what you get into, but typically range from $50-$150!
Typically breakfast is included, but it varies trip to trip. You can ask your ambassador for tips on where to eat cheap if you’re on a budget!
TrovaPass is a subscription where you earn credits on a monthly basis that can be applied towards trips. It is not currently available to new subscribers.
A non-refundable deposit of $299 is due when your trip is confirmed. The remainder will be charged 45 days prior to the trip departure. If you book within 45 days from departure, the full amount will be due when trip is confirmed.
Because of the high-demand for some of our trips, you may be required to first request a spot on the trip. Requesting a spot costs nothing, but is essentially a commitment to join the trip when your spot is confirmed. When confirmed, you’ll receive an email from hi@trovatrip.com notifying you that the trip is on and your deposit for $299 will be charged in 24 hours. Should you choose to forgo the experience of a lifetime, you may cancel your spot within the 24-hour window, and you won't be charged.
We cater to young professionals past the stage of roughing it - that means no hostels and no hotels below 3 stars. We strive to create an experience that’s not only authentic, but also easily accessible and comfortable. All hotel locations are conveniently located near the heart of each major destination, so you can live like a local. Less time in transit means more time doing; save the commute for back home.
No more than 20 travelers on each trip. In order to create a personalized experience, we feel it is important to keep group sizes smaller. Sometimes, less is more!
We try to start and end all trips in a major city with an international airport for your convenience. It’s up to you whether or not you want to continue your adventure after the trip end!
We will send a detailed itinerary with everything you need to know at least 7 days prior to your trip start date including hotel information and where to meet up. You can expect each trip to kick off with a Happy Hour for you to meet everyone after settling into your room. Cheers!
You’ll sleep in twin, double or triple shared accommodations with private bathrooms. Traveling with a friend? Just plug in their name while booking under "Roommate Request" or shoot us an email at hi@trovatrip.com and we’ll ensure you’re roomed together. Uncomfortable with sharing a room? Let us know and we'll give you a quote for a single-occupancy bedroom.
Excellent question! We’ll provide a full itinerary including hotel and transportation details at least 7 days prior to your vacation including all necessary travel information. Accommodations often change depending on the group size, so we like to get the exact itinerary out to you when finalized to avoid confusion.
If you’re leaving the country, you’ll need a valid passport that doesn't expire for at least 6 months from the date you depart on your trip. You may also need a Visa. Unfortunately, we cannot provide Visas or guidance on Visas, so please check with your local consulate. You'll probably also want some spending cash (and card), clothes, a bathing suit, toiletries, and anything else you want to show off on vacay! We'll also send you a packing list leading up to your trip.
Each trip is assigned an Ambassador who will lead your group through the full itinerary. You’ll be introduced to your Ambassador prior to your trip. Feel free to reach out with any questions regarding your upcoming trip or link up on social media!
YES! Don’t feel pressured to find someone to join you on a trip. Part of the Trova experience is traveling with complete strangers so you can meet new and wonderful people from around the world. We purposefully match you with like-minded travelers to make the experience easy.
We purposefully keep schedules light so you don’t feel overwhelmed and have time to explore or relax on your own.
Leading up to your trip, we’ll provide recommendations for optional activities you can partake in. Email us at hi@trovatrip.com if you have activity ideas or recommendations.
Have a love for all things travel? We’re always looking for people who love travel as much as we do. Apply here if you’re interested in leading trips as an Ambassador!
