An excursion day in Bali

An excursion day in Bali

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

I have been in Bali for 5 days, and I must say I am taking things lovely and slow. Four out of five days have been spend mooching by the pool, reading, swimming and enjoying the rays of sunshine. 

Eventhough it is the rainy season I must say the majority of the days have been dry however very humid. But I cannot complain about this as it is currently very cold and snowy in the Netherlands.

Therefore you will be all very pleased that todays post is not to describe what I have not been doing, but what I did in Bali. 

I booked with another couple a private tour to visit some places in the North of Bali. And have listed them below for your reading entertainment. 

Jaliwatuh – When visiting Bali it is enivitable not to visit the rice fields. You are being surounded by the teraces and a lot of green. I saw the rice destinated for Bali and for Thailand use. It is very peaceful to walk around these fields and check out all the greenery surounding you.

Local Fruit Market – Seeing all the fruit and spices layed out, was like seeing a beautiful canvas. All those colors work so well together.

Pura Ulun Danu Bratan – Currently this is still my favorite temple in Bali. It is so beautiful and peaceful at this temple. The temple is surounded by a beautiful lake. If you are in Bali I would definitely recommend visiting this temple.

Coffee Farm – I must say this was the nicest coffee farm I have visited in Bali. And experienced my first tasting of the Luwak coffee. 

Monkey Forest– Unfortunately I am not sure where this forest was. All I know is that I did not enjoy this one as much as the Ubud one. I found this one very commercial as there were shops on the premises and the tour was very short. I must confess I did enjoy feeding the monkey. I always thought these monkies were quite hostile but the one I fed was very sweet. And that little hand of the monkey felt so soft.

Tanah Lot – This temple was one of my main reasons to return to Bali. I was really curious about the unique positioning of the temple, as the temple is build on a giant rock. Also you can experience a beautiful sunset if you are lucky. I must say it did not disapoint.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post and if you are curious about my other posts feel free to browse around.

Until next post friends!

Bye Bye Bali Day 12, 13 and 14

Bye Bye Bali Day 12, 13 and 14

Hi everybody, dear readers and loyal subbies,

Be prepared for a longer post than usual, but hopefully worth it!  Hopefully you will  all enjoy some of the photography shown in this post. So lets go through the last day from my holidays.

Day 12

Another lazy bum day. I know, I know should be active but letting the good times role and enjoying the weather the food and the overall relaxing.

Day 13 North Bali 

This was the longest yet one of the most beautiful trips I made. We got picked up from our hotel at 8.00 hrs and we returned to our hotel at 19.00  We visited so many things! Such as a local food market, another coffee farm, the twin lakes , more monkeys and the most serene place I ever visited the Pura Ulun Danu Bratan Temple.  The temple was in the water and the flowers, the lake and overall nature was beautiful.

I  highly, highly recommend doing a North Bali Trip if you are in Bali. Either doing it by yourself or booking via an agency.

DAY 14

The last day of my stay in Bali. I extended the stay at the hotel so I could still have a shower at 16.00 hrs as my pick up was at 17.25 hrs.

I really tried to make the best day possible out of my last day. This meant I Woke up early and had my breakfast early. Afterwards I headed to the swimming pool where I remained the most of the day.  I really loved the relaxing at the swimming pool and having a great view  over Sanur from the Infinity pool. You could really see the kites that were being flown from the beach.

I had lunch at approx one and enjoyed my last batch of tasty food. Soon I would be doomed by the horror that is/ was airplane food. And trust me the food on the plane going back was not that good. The I was so very sad to leave the hotel and the beautiful island that is Bali. During my (minmal travels) I met really nice people and it made me a better / stronger person to make this decision to go by myself to Bali.

But guess what ,I will be returning to Bali in 4 months time. I might have become slightly obsessed , I know :p. But there are still a lot of things I want to do. Also I want to experience as little wintry weather as possible.

Thus for now the tales of Bali are over but I am sure there are more adventures to come. if you liked this post please like and subscribe and hope to see you back soon to Thumbelinaslifestyle.com.

Until next post friends!
