Can you do Bali on a budget – we came in under budget and had a blast.
Sindhu Night Market We visited the delicious and traditional Sindhu Night Food Market. The heat, the smoke, the smells and the sounds as a sensory overload – but not in an unpleasant way. As you all know, we love our food. It was a long, leisurely walk for us as we again walked the coastal […]
As we head to Sanur we celebrated our first month of travel and look back at what we have learnt as travellers rather than tourists
We love Gili Air Our plans were never set in stone. Apparently that is the best way to travel and man, were they were right. It was a great idea to spend some ‘chill out’ time on Gili Air. The closest island to Lombok, Gili Air is one of three islands that form the Gili’s. […]

Farewell Ubud It’s been a week long stay for us in Ubud and it’s time to move on. We would recommend our homestay if you are planning to come Ubud. Ayu Bungalow 2 was located centrally and close to Monkey Forest (not too close for unwanted visitors) and to all the little laneways with family […]
Elephant Cave Spent the last couple of days wandering the laneways and getting lost (as usual). We also spent some time at Elephant Cave which was amazing and thankfully not too crowded with tourists.
Discovering the sites, sounds, culture and spiritual centre of Bali. We have been getting lost down alleys, experiencing the best warangs serving the most authentic food. This is Ubud.
