Shayna Pitch moved from Toronto, Canada, to a small village in Bali after her husband presented her with a completely thought-out relocation plan. Since then, the couple has enjoyed life in their little village, exploring rice paddies, chasing sunsets, adventuring in botanical gardens, and — of course — making new friends.

These are some of the faces they have come to know.
