Countdown to Bali 16 days to go

Countdown to Bali 16 days to go

Haven’t had time to think about Bali, and now the reality is setting it. I keep looking at the empty suitcase and thinking I must organise my packing. So many other things to do. I saw the photos SCRIWF founder Wendy OHanlan published this morning and was immediately whisked back to when I lived in Penang and first visited Bali.

The smells the sights the sounds are all as if it were yesterday. 

There is so much I want to do while I am there and seeking inspiration in the gentleness of the Balinese people and the beauty of their island I am sure the words will flow.

So information about Ubud. The town of Ubud, in the uplands of Bali, Indonesia, is known as a center for traditional crafts and dance. The surrounding Ubud District’s rainforest and terraced rice paddies, dotted with Hindu temples and shrines, are among Bali’s most famous landscapes. Ancient holy sites include the intricately carved Goa Gajah (“Elephant Cave”) and Gunung Kawi, with its rock-cut shrines.
