ubud

we spent an entire day in ubud.

we visited the rice terraces, the batik painting stores, the wood carving stores and the bali zoo ! {fun fact – what i liked about the bali zoo is that unlike most other zoos that i have visited, the bali zoo has some fun interactive activities that each visitor could opt for. A and I chose to feed the crocodiles and the tigers at nominal extra costs.

at night once we returned to our hotel in seminyak, we visited the kudeta beach club {food tip – if you are vegetarian do NOT try their sushi. have the pizzas instead}

^^ the beautiful rice paddy fields of ubud. it was a 45 minute trek to the top, unfortunately i forgot to wear sneakers, so i had to do with slippers throughout! let’s just say it wasn’t very easy and A wasn’t v happy with my shoe choice that day^^

other fun things we did in bali because really this could go on for several most posts…..

Visit the dovetail – we happened upon it while we were walking around seminyak square. their bartenders whip up some of the best cocktails in seminyak. also the owner was super nice and gave us lots of dishes to try out {on the house!} he was a delight and we spent hours at the bar just talking about how similar our traditions and cultures were!

^^ with the namesakes! my husband and the owner shared the same name and birth dates! how co-incidental ^^

Also visit saigon street if you happen to be around the potato head beach club. they serve some great vietnamese food and the most good looking sangria i have ever seen!

and last but not the least – the truffle polenta fries at sisterfields is a MUST try. i’d go back to bali just to have those again ;)

all in all it was a great vacation. A and i  met so many people from around the world.

i say this every time i’m back from a vacation but its amazing how people  from different countries and cultures are deep down all so very similar. we think the same things and believe in the same principles. well most of us anyway….
