Last October, me and Carl went to Project Getway Bali ( ) which is one of the best things I have ever done in my life! Unfortunately I didn’t write a blog post about it until now.

The idea behind Project Getaway is to get talented, ambitious people from all over the world to meet up in Bali for one month to work, exchange ideas, getting new friends and having a lot of fun. All normal day-to-day tasks like cooking, cleaning, laundry etc. are taking care of, so you don’t have to worry about anything like that.

Here are some videos that does a good job of explaining what Project Getaway is all about:

PG Video 3 (with me as one of the talking heads)

There are several reasons why I loved Project Getaway so much, and all together it made it one of the best months of my life:

  1. I made a lot of new friends.
  2. Me and Carl where good friends since before, but PG made us even closer.
  3. I learned a tonne of stuff about marketing, SEO, what SaaS services to use, outsourcing, fund raising, how to be more efficient, how to balance life and a lot of other things.
  4. I got to live and work in paradise for a month.
  5. We had a lot of fun parties!

Project Getaway also has a certain “Paradise Hotel” feeling about it. There is something about the easy life, tropical beaches & beautiful sunsets that makes it really easy to fall in love, and then, just as easy, get your heart broken. We had a lot of that during this Project Getaway (myself included)… ;-)

Who wouldn't want to spend a month in this villa?


Almost everyday we had a PG-talk were you could share your knowledge


Bali is a really beautiful island!


The most fucked up thing that came out of the Hackathon, lol ;-)


I had a bit of a hangover so I don't remember the name of the temple, but it was nice


Beer in the sunset, one of the best memories from Bali!

The closing party was awesome!
