A lot can happen when you set out to ′find yourself′. Sometimes, you can even lose the plot.
From visiting ancient healers with cellphone addictions to leaving a shaking ashram intent on extracting her soul, Becky Wicks soon discovered that six months travelling round Bali wasn′t all going to be about finding inner peace and harmony. In fact, the perils of possessed teens, eating raw, yogic headstands, diving shipwrecks and dicing with black magic and demons all took their toll on the Island of the Gods.
And that was before the vaginal steaming.
Becky Wicks lifts the sarong on real life in Bali in a blur of locals, tourists, expats and other other eating, praying lovers who arrive... you know... not really knowing who they are.
Becky Wicks was born in 1979. She attended the Gleed School for Girls, also known as 'The Virgin Megastore' in small town Spalding, Lincolnshire, England. She studied media production at Lincoln University, but was writing freelance from the age of 14.
She arrived in NYC in 2001 at age 21. She worked for a production company and wrote for a NYC restaurant guide, as well as a Brooklyn community mag (also dated the editor, who broke her heart). Back in London, from 2004 she worked for a travel and entertainment dot com which led her to theatre-land, interviewing West end actors and reviewing more restaurants.
