Ubud, Bali

  On the road again in Bali, I spent a few days visiting the temples, mountains, rice paddies, bamboo forests, jungles and dipping my toe in some Balinese cultural highlights as well as the the water at Tirta Empul. 1 – 3: Pura Pusering Jagat is a small temple hidden away in the heart of a small village in Gianyar and completely untouched by tourism. I visited here on my drive back home. This was a real eye-opener, and I got…

Butterfly Park, Bali

Taking a trip to Bali was one of the most memorable things I’ve ever done. The nature is so green, beautiful and amazing. One of my favourite places in Bali was the butterfly park and nature reserve.
