My name is Julie and I am from France. I moved to Bali when I was 13 years old with my family. I have always been a huge animal lover. Since I was 13 when we first went to Bali I started picking up animals in streets already like puppies and kittens.

I found puppy first time in a river when I was cycling with my friend. I took her home. Then after that quite often I would find kittens in the streets, brought them home, found homes for them and it’s just something that never ended.

One time I traveled to Japan and visited the cat cafes there. It was amazing and I thought I should open cat cafes here also in Bali. So, I came back and did a lot of research to do it. I was working at that time so I quit my job to focus more on working with animals.

The objective of the café is really a boarding facility for it to run by itself. So I would like to not rely on relations anymore to help the kittens.

I’m Katy, I’m from Jersey, an Island by france, It’s part of the UK and it is pretty small. I have been working in a food industry as a chef for nine years already. I have won awards in the Uk for the British Heart Foundation for being an ambassador for helping people a lot with getting better, fitter, healthier.

I jumped into being just because of my little brother. He has diabetes and I used to look after him a lot. I was trying to make him healthy alternatives. From experiencing on creating healthy , I gained a lot of knowledge. So I was just trying to teach myself as I go and then I want to make a shop where everybody could come and eat that kind of healthy food.

I want to open a plant-based café similar what I did back at home but a bit different. It would be using local seasonal organic produce. Using that local Balinese people offer like using local Jamu Juices and just trying to incorporate everything.

Originally I’m from Germany. I grew up very conservative, very normal you could say. I started working when I was 16 years old. I always wanted to be independent. Make my own money. Be as free as possible. But, I never asked myself what do I really want to do in life.

I had a nice job. The money was good. It caught me in. I started to make more money and buy nice things. In the beginning I thought I would be happy, but no. I ended up getting super unhappy.

One day I got the chance to talk to traveler. He has been traveling the world for 6 years so far. I learned a lot about life from him that encouraged me to travel and see what happens.

Not long after that, I cancelled the lease of my apartments. Sold everything that I have so far. I traveled through Southeast Asia. My first destination was Bangkok, then Cambodia, and Vietnam. Then after some time traveling I got tired and needed a beach. So, I went to Bali and I just got sucked in with the vibe. Now I work and live here.
