This is the spot where you paddle out to the line up. Can you think of a more mystic beach than this?

The Uluwatu Vlog

After the terrible experience of walking in the streets (especially by night) of Uluwatu we decided to rent a scooter to cruise around. I have a international motorcycle license and a couple of years of driving experience. Neverthless things went crazy, watch what happened. On the scooter we explored the Uluwatu temple, Padang Padang Beach and enjoyed a wonderful Sunset in the Single Fin Bar.

A traditional fisher boat

Tedjakula

Woke up early to get on a traditional fisher boat in Tedjakula. Tedjakula is in the north of Bali. Seeing the world waking up on this boat was an amazing experience and it was the most amazing sunrise i have ever seen.

The sun was slowly rising and revealed how far we went. Heading back towards the island with its exotic mountains it felt like we are on our way to discover a place nobody has ever been before. I felt like being Napoleon Bonaparte on a mission!

The Tegalalang Vlog

in this video blog we explored the famous Tegalalang rice terrace. back in the days it was simply used to farm rice. Nowadays it is mainly a tourist spot. but why? because the layers of the rice fields are very aesthetic! The terrace are close to Ubud in Bali, Indonesia.

The Hindu Temples in Bali are full of fantastic details. Statues like this dragon right behind me. Detail rich roofs, inspiring shapes carved in wood and colorful facades. If you travel to such a temple make sure to fully focus on those details. you’ll dive into a whole new world!

This dragon is guarding the Ulun Danu Beratan Temple.

Boat journey to the Gilis

gili boat

After arriving with the taxi in Padangbai we've been approached by a lot of street sellers to buy a Gili boat ticket. We've already purchased one online with a dubious boat company which i'm not gonna mention here because we were not happy with the service. there was no pickup point described nor a proper pick up time or meeting point. so we had to ask our way through the hotel reception and some small offices of this company. The staff was not friendly but we managed to get to the port in time. I have never experienced such a messy boarding. The boat was delayed and we waited for more than two hours to depart. The port is pretty chaotic, people screaming around departing times from different companies, vendors are selling beverages and the waiting room is packed full with tourists.

How to get to the Gilis?

Like i mentioned we purchased our Gili Boat ticket online. Actually there are a lot of different options to get over to the islands. In peak season i can recommend you to buy a couple of days in advance, otherwise you could miss your preferred departing day and time. But whilst low season you can actually book a day before departing or even on the same day you want to leave. If you decide to buy from a street seller always negotiate the price and compare different offers. You can choose between private boats, which are the most expansive, fast boats and public ferries. We chose the public ferry because it is the cheapest option and we actually enjoy a good boat trip.

Where to stay?

We stayed at a hotel close to the Port of Pdangbai. What we didn't kow then, we had to walk all the way with our luggage to the Gili Boat ticket office and from there they brought us to the port again.

What is special on the Gili boat trip?

The funny thing was, that the boat seats were old airplane seats. somehow a cool way of recycling. The boat ride was comfortable. once the boat broke down, the motor stopped but after couple of minutes they fixed it again. Don't expect everything to work well if you choose the cheapest option ­čśë

Me personally love boat trips so i really enjoyed the whole journey from departing in bali until arriving to the Gilis. You see the Islands from the water perspective and that's cool somehow.

finally boarded and happy with our window seat. Me and Simi

Not all the boats arrive there safely haha

The Island has an airport in the capital city of Denpasar which is situated in the South of Bali.

The Brahmavihara-Arama Temple

brahmavihara-arama

We explored the Brahmavihara-Arama Temple in the north of Bali.  This temple is also known under the name of Vihara Buddha Banjar. We where the only tourists exploring it at the time we arrived. The North is not as popular as the south but it has so many gems to offer. The Brahmavihara-Arama is a buddhist temple and is still in use as a meditation center.

How to get to the Brahmavihara-Arama Temple?

The Temple is situated in the North of Bali, Indonesia. It is built on a hill, overlooking the city of Banjar. The temple is actually not that easy to find so make sure to visit it with a guide or a driver who really knows how to get there. You can try it by yourself but driving with gps is recommended because there are no roadsigns showing the way up the hill to the temple.

Where to stay?

We stayed at a hotel close to the center of Ubud and not right in the jungle. There are tons of options. From Ubud we went on a tour to the temple.

Check it out here

What is special there?

Like i wrote before, this is not a very popular tourist spot. At the time we visited the temple there were only one or two other tourists visiting. The Buddhist buildings are very unique and the meditation rooms built in a simple and minimalistic design. The architecture is a bit Hinduism influenced because of the main religion in Bali. This place is really recommended if you are interested to learn more about Buddhism.
