SMM jedi, insta-blogger, traveler, galvanizer and a happy mom
A human being is a jack of all trades. He copes with tasks quickly, creates projects, motivates others to change, and also changes diapers.

Katya makes nice posts and promotes accounts on Instagram, works on a project on personal development and growth together with Sasha and dreams of green marketing so that everything could be done with justice and for love.

She values sincerity and naturalness towards yourself and others. She will inspire you to do what your heart tells you and will share her knowledge. And also will give you a warm hug and give an ear to you if you wish.

'Travel changes you. If you do the right things while traveling, you find like-minded friends with whom your personal development moves into top gear. You acquire confidence, openness, and faith in the world. When surrounded by like-minded people, your wings start to grow and your life literally makes a U-turn. This is what happened to me after the Smena. I want you to experience something similar.'
Alex Postovar
Traveler, founder of lifelongtravel.ru, web-designer, founder of "Reflashing" coaching program of self-development.
'If somebody told me three or four years ago what my life would be now, I would have never believed it'.

During this relatively short period, Sasha changed his career, made a transition from office to freelance, and gradually came to the point where he started his own project. He also learned to travel nine months a year, launched a popular travel and personal development blog, became a vegetarian, started yoga and meditation practice, got married, and became a father in Bali.

Sasha is sure that everyone can change their life for the better regardless of the situation. And he is sharing this idea with other people through his own example and by all other possible means.

Sasha has spent almost a year in Bali. He has been living in Ubud all this time and considers this place to be the best compared to the other places in the world he's been to.
Why Ubud?
Scenic nature – rice fields, palm trees, jungles with lush tropical vegetation, rivers, and waterfalls.
Friendly local people who greet you with a smile and are happy to help you wherever possible.
Unique culture and religion with daily rituals, colorful ceremonies and marches. A mixture of Hinduism, Buddhism, Shamanism.
Creativity, beauty, and 'radical self-expression' is literally everywhere. Statues, pictures and all those designer items can be seen here and there.
Fresh local fruit and vegetables at affordable prices and a huge choice of healthy food products and healthy food restaurants.
People! A large community of freelance expats, creative people, and masters of spiritual traditions of all kinds.
Is internet fast?
Download speed 9-10mbps, upload speed - 3-4mbps. Also, Bali has really cheap and fast cellular data. We recommend buying a Telkomsel 12gb plan with a sim card that costs $5.
Is it possible to come for a shorter/ longer period?
Unfortunately no, Smena has a program and you must arrive and leave the house according to the schedule.
How to get to the Station?
Getting around the island by taxi is the easiest and the most relevant option. There is no public transportation as such in Bali. An approximate price for a taxi ride from the airport to Ubud is 250-300 thousand rupees. Don't forget to bargain ;) Another option is to get from the airport by a shuttle bus – we will send you detailed instructions by e-mail and in a group chat after your Smena is confirmed.
What should I take with me?
Bed sheets and towels are at the Station, but don't forget to take the necessary and hard to get prescription drugs and things like contact lenses. However most of the common goods are easy to buy in a local store.
Can I go with a friend / relative/ in couple?
Yes if only he / she also applies and is selected.
Is it possible to come with a pet?
Mark it in the application form, we will try do our best! (Your pet doesn't need to fill out another application form).
What's up with money? Credit cards?
You'll feel like a billionaire in Bali. $100 is more than a million USD. ATMs are very accessible and we advise paying with cash rather then cards as frauds are a common issue. We'll tell you where it's safe!
What are the prices in Bali and Ubud?
Prices here are very affordable especially when you know the places, and we will help you with this! For example, you can buy very cheap (two to three times cheaper than in a supermarket) fruit and vegetables in the morning market located 5-6 minutes away by bike. A kilo of mango costs $1, a banana – $0.05, a papaya - $0.75 and so on. An ordinary dish at an average vegetarian café (fried rice with vegetables) costs $3 on average. In a 'trendy and beautiful restaurant' a dish generally costs $4-5. In cafes for locals you can get a meal for $0.75 and even cheaper (but the food there is not always healthy).
How should I get around the Island?
Since there is no public transportation in Bali, your will need a bike or a car. You can rent both without any problems. If you are not planning to make many long-distance trips, renting a bike would be a more feasible option. For example, with a bike you will be able to avoid traffic which can be overloaded. To rent an average good quality bike (Honda Vario or Honda Scoopy) costs 700,000 rupees on average. This is very inexpensive in comparison to, say, Thailand. A liter of petrol costs around $0.5. To rent a car or a bike only a copy of your passport is needed.
