    Saying goodbye

    August 5, 2018 in Indonesia ⋅ 🌬 27 °C

    After a hearty breakfast, some last minute souvenir shopping and a last swim in the pool, we had to take a taxi to the airport where we had to seperate since I flew back to Jakarta and Valerie headed on to Istanbul.
    What a great trip!

    La Plancha, Seminyak

    August 4, 2018 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Last but not least we went to the beach for a short last swim and a stroll along the emblematic beach front bars and restaurants. Despite the many tourists, I really enjoyed this place. The colourful bars are a pleasant sight, the food is good but pricy and you can get the best strawberry margarithas of Bali at La Plancha tapas bar. Not to be missed!Read more

    On our last day before heading back to Jakarta/Germany, we went to spend one night in Seminyak. It is a very touristy place, but it's nice if you want to do some shopping for clothing and souvenirs. And you can get delicious food at Nalu Bows, Seminyak. Our little hotel was also a great discovery, I'll definately book it again in the future.Read more

    Pura Tannah Lot

    August 3, 2018 in Indonesia ⋅ 🌬 28 °C

    On our last day in Canggu we took a gojek to Pura Tannah Lot where we stayed a few hours. Getting back was much more difficult as the Bali taxi mafia wouldn't let us order a grab... We were being followed which was really scary. In the end we managed to find another gojek driver who took us back to our hotel in Canggu for double the price (since he took both of us at the same time). Unfortunately, we lost a lot of time trying not to give in.. in the end it would have probably made more sense to have paid the overpriced taxi fare.Read more

    Arriving in Canggu

    July 31, 2018 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    On the 31st of July, we took the mini bus from Ubud to Canggu - not a very smart decision as it turned out. It was late, slow and we thus arrived about 2 or 3 hours later than expected. However, Canggu itself war definately worth it. Soon this place will be much more developped and crowded, but for now, it is still kind of relaxed and you can get great food and decent cocktails for a good price. We really enjoyed our time there.Read more

    Discovering the surroundings of Ubud

    July 30, 2018 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    On the morning of the 29th of July, we were woken up by the first of the two strong earthquakes that shook Lombok. Even though we were hundreads of kilometers away, we could still feel it quit strongly. It happened at about 7 am and it took us some time to realize what had just happend. The first thought I had was that Gunung Agung had erupted again but social media quickly told us what had happened. We then cancelled our reservation in Nusa Lembongan (also due to the high waves that made it difficult to cross the see) and decided to go to Canggu instead. We also stayed one night longer than planned in Ubud. We went on a bike tour around Ubud and had more delicious vegan food at Sayuri Healing Food Café and the Zest.Read more

    Discovering Ubud

    July 28, 2018 in Indonesia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    On our first day in Ubud, we mainly strolled through the cafés, boutiques and restaurants. I also relaxed some time at the pool at Ketut's place while Valerie visited the temples. We had lunch at the pobular Bira Bira and treated ourselves to Cocktails later during happy hour.Read more
