She has returned to Bali most years since then, staying 2-6 months each time. Since 2007, she has spent three 4-month stints in Amed. While there, she hiked extensively, finally gathering detailed notes and taking photos as research for this guidebook.

20 Hikes in Amed: Bali's remote northeast coast
Bali, Indonesia, 'Island of Gods' is renowned for its spectacular and diverse natural scenery encompassing volcanic peaks, steeply terraced rice fields, vast sweeping tropical beaches, dense forests and lush gardens. It's equally famed for its unique Hindu culture and plethora of exquisite visual and performing arts.
Tucked in Bali's remote northeast corner is Amed, a mountainous coastal region of tiny fishing villages set in crescent bays that are separated by rocky headlands and backed by pretty mountains whose ridge lines dip their toes into the gentle Bali Sea. Amed's little-visited mountains are inhabited by local farmers and fisherman. Hidden in the hillsides are their thatch and stone houses, terraced fields, Hindu temples and pagodas, and secret watering holes. From the ridge lines, spectacular views of Bali's north coast await visitors.
Hiking in Bali guides adventurers on 20 charming hikes along narrow mountain footpaths, remote roads, grassy headlands and Amed's only long beach. The guidebook provides all the details needed to enjoy memorable excursions into a slice of the 'real Bali'. Each hike includes:
* brief hike description
* highlights of the hike
* tables of 'fast facts' listing all essentials such as distance, hiking time, start/end points, and difficulty'
* detailed step-by-step instructions
* amenities/facilities available in each hike area
Hiking in Bali will also teach you important essentials for visiting both Bali and Amed, as well as how to stay healthy in the tropics.
