In Bali, Indonesia… There she stood. Waiting… Wondering… Perhaps slightly bored and lost in a day dream… There they came. Sweaty. Stereotypical.

In keeping with our sightseeing plans Bali, after our day exploring stunning temples and waterfalls, we decided to have one day off just spent relaxing!

Bali’s Tukad Cepung Waterfall is a waterfall I’d never really heard of before we visited. Tirta Empul Temple and Mount Batur Volcano, I was fairly familiar with, having visited the latter last time we were here but Tukad Cepung Waterfall was something that only came onto our radars when our driver suggested that as one … Continue Reading

After a rather long journey from London, we arrived in Bali late at night. By the time we actually then left the airport and arrived in our villa in Ubud, it was well past midnight! You’d think that would mean going straight to be once we arrived but instead, armed with beers we’d picked up … Continue Reading

Bit of background, I’ve been quite lucky to have spent the last few months living outside of the UK. Funnily enough, for all my love of travelling, I’d never been to Asia before and so this was a summer of firsts. The first opportunity I got, I packed as much travel as possible into every … Continue Reading

The Tegalalang rice terraces in Ubud And Gunung Kawi Temple (also referred to as Pura Gunung Kawi) are some of the most important spots to visit in Bali.

After a day off spent doing not much but relaxing, visiting the Monkey forest and getting two massages – the latter of which was a Thai massage where someone walks all over you (Oh, how I hurt the next day!), we decided to start our trip around the island with a visit to Nungnung waterfalls. … Continue Reading

On our penultimate day in Bali, we finally decided to see what was actually some of the most obvious spots to visit in Bali but ones we’d never gotten round to seeing (like not the last time we’d visit and not even on this current trip).
