    Arrived in Ubud

    June 29, 2018 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    After a stressful day wondering if we'd be able to fly out to Bali, we finally made it. Mt Agung decided to spew volcanic ash last night, causing the cancellation of dozens of flights to and from Bali. Thankfully a change in wind direction aided our cause and we were the first flight out of Cairns on Friday night.

    It was 3 am before we got to bed in Ubud, after a 1 hour transfer from Bali airport. Had a lovely young girl as our guide whom we requested for our subsequent tours for the rest of the week.

    We slept till 10 am next day, had our complimentary breakfast, then booked all the major tours for the week. Headed off shopping in Ubud for the afternoon which included 1 hour massages, a few Bintangs at a rooftop bar, before returning to the Hotel for happy hour cocktails. Had a great Balinese banquet complete with traditional dancing all night.

    Very weary, but glad we packed a lot into the 1st day considering our late arrival.
