    End of day- massage and rooms service

    July 9, 2019 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Ended the day with a chocolate massage and room service.

    Kayla loved the massage and I could not get over their technique. I was so relaxed and felt so soft. .🤤

    Tiramisu unfortunately was not what we expected but the food was needed!Read more

    Ubud Bali

    January 25, 2020 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    So Saturday evening we just walked the strip to get the lay of the land. Had a great pizza dinner at Osteria. Near the monkey forest. We didn't go in the monkey forest as they were going to close at 6pm. We decided we weren't satisfied with Betutu villas and made arrangements to move to the Bali Spirit for the rest of our time here. They even came and picked us up so we were relocated by 10am. Much nicer room and resort. And if course more money!
    This is Colleen writing this from Den's phone to attach some more photos. I will write again tomorrow about our Sunday.

    Artisanal Bali

    February 10, 2019 in Indonesia ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    Fortunately we converted our transfer from Sanur to Ubud into a half-day tour with our man Abut, son of Darta, who owns the Rumah Roda where we will be staying in Ubud. He is the first actually friendly, jovial, talkative “guide” that we’ve met thusfar!

    First, we learned about Indonesian names: For instance, Abut is his “name for calling” - his real name is Wayan. His wife’s name is also Wayan - and then they named their newborn son... Wayan! We read later that first-born males are called Wayan, Putu or Gede, second children have another name, third and fourth children too, then the fifth child is called Wayan Balik - Wayan again! Unreal! So pretty much everyone has a “name for calling” and if in doubt that Balinese dude is probably named Wayan!

    Next, noting our interest in Balinese carvings, Abut took us en route to the Daging wood carvers in Sukawati, where we learned about the 10-year apprenticeship plus 10-year journeyman training that starts at around age 15, saw two unusual types of wood common in Bali - hibiscus with its distinctive green tone and crocodile wood with the bumpy bark that gives it its name. We also had a chance to watch the “masters” at work - so at least some Bali wood carving really is handmade!

    Two other artisans that we came across in Ubud: Wayan the wood carver (who also does lessons) just sculpting masks by the side of the market road, and an old painter practicing his craft in the middle of the rice fields. Artisanal industries and craftwork seem to be a big part of local life in Bali, especially around Ubud and Sukawati.

    Release Day

    October 10, 2018 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Unseren ersten richtigen Tag auf Bali starteten wir mit einem super leckeren Frühstück ☕🥞🥥🍊, welches ab sofort mein Liebling sein wird: Black Rice Pudding (schwarzer, süßlicher Reis mit Kokosmilch und Palmzucker) und Dadar Gulung (grüner Kokospfannkuchen gefüllt mit gerösteten Kokosraspeln und Palmzucker).
    Wir hatten für den Tag nichts geplant, außer mal so richtig zu entspannen und das gute Wetter (über 30°C ☀️❤️) zu genießen. Ein Programmpunkt stand für uns heute allerdings an; eine balinesische Ganzkörpermassage 💆🏻‍♀️. Eigentlich hatten das Resort für 3 Nächte gebucht, doch es gab wohl ein Problem mit dem Internet und so konnten wir nur für 2 Nächte bleiben. Als Entschädigung bekamen wir eine einstündige Massage geschenkt 😍.
    Total entspannt verbrachten wir den Rest des Tages am Pool und aßen super lecker zu Abend.
    Ich mochte asiatisches Essen schon immer total gerne, eoch seit wir hier sind bin ich ein total Fan davon geworden, ich könnte den ganzen Tag essen und Neues ausprobieren 🤤.
