The 6th October was a public holiday in Singapore, so I decided to extend this long weekend by another two days and spend five days on Bali. That’s easy because from Singapore it is only a 2.5 hour flight. I decided to spend two nights in Ubud, inland and the cultural heart of Bali, and two nights on Nongsa Lembongan, a small island just 30 minutes off the coast from Sanur. I left early on a Friday morning and arrived in Denpasar, Bali, around noon. A driver picked me up and took me to my hotel in Ubud. It was on Monkey Forest Road pretty much in the city centre. The road is a one-way road and most of the time it is just one big traffic jam. On both sides of the road there are ... read more

Hello, This is day 4, today I start my day at 7:00 am with the breakfast of Podonk Bulan Mas the home stay Im in. It was really enjoyable, banana pancakes, fruit salad, orange juice and balinese coffee.

Hello, Sorry I couldn't finished my post yesterday because of the wifi not available at the hotel. I'm going to finish it now. When I last write it was about my delicious food in the lovely artistic cafe, where I did few skype and finally decided to keep on walking in Ubud. I walked around and was amazed by the beautiful shops which surround Ubud, I tried to resist to buy everything, lucky the prices are a bit expensive, still very cheap for what it is but I am sure I can find cheaper in Bali as soon as I will be in less touristic city. I end up in a cafe with a really nice view of a rice field, called tropical view cafe just before the monkey forest. I drink a Nojito which is ... read more

vrijdag 29 augustus 2014 : Kalibaru – Pemuteran (Bali) Vandaag trekken we naar Bali. Cepi zit met een bang hartje uit te kijken naar de benzinestations, want zonder bijtanken halen we het niet. En, ja! we vinden waarschijnlijk het enige station in heel de streek die Solar heeft. Maar lang zal het vermoedelijk niet duren, gezien ze met een enkele pomp 2 rijen bedienen. En de andere rij zijn camions... Het is nagelbijten tot wij aan de beurt zijn, maar het lukt. :) Oversteek naar Bali In Permuteran nemen we afscheid van Cepi. Hij keert vandaag nog terug naar Java, en hoopt overmorgen weer in Bandung te zijn. 2 dagen en enkele uren in het busje slapen zal volstaan, maar quid met Solar? zaterdag 30 augustus 2014 : Pemuteran chillen aan het strand centrum voor bescherming ... read more
