WHAT TO DO IN UBUD ON A RAINY DAY?

Reading Time: 3 minutes

What to do when you’re in Bali and the rain pours down? Walking through puddles of water does not sound like the best thing to do on a holiday on a tropical island! But there are ways to enjoy Ubud, or Bali in general, when it rains like hell.

WATCH THE RAIN PATTERNS!

CROSSFIT TRAINING IN CANGGU, BALI- YOU WANNA KILL ME?

Reading Time: 4 minutes

Crossfit Training- a training method that was invented by a dude called Greg Glassman. I am pretty sure he does not like humans. It is a workout that includes weightlifting, high-intensity interval training, gymnastics, plyometrics and many more workouts I have no clue of.

But what had brought me to the point to work out at 9am on a Saturday morning, whilst I was chilling on a tropical island?

INSIDE WONDERLAND- HOW I LOST MY MEMORY

Reading Time: 5 minutes

I opened my eyes. The bed sheets were really comfortable. One of those feathery badass ones that make you want to stay in bed all day long. The crying eyes of my Mom made me want to leave this bed pretty quickly.

ROAD TRIP TO LOVINA

Reading Time: 4 minutes

YAY! A road trip! I LOVE those! Though this one was a bit fancier than normal: We had a driver. His name was Agung, he lived close to us in Ubud and didn’t talk much, but he nodded. So every time he did that, I pictured him saying “Yes great! Awesome” and this is how we got along.

Our first stop took us to a mountain that overlooked the “Tamblingan Lake” and the “Buyan Lake”. Huge bats and snakes were carried around by some guys who wanted money for a picture. And when I say huge bats I mean 2 massive meter bats!

TAKING A BANANA BREAK

Reading Time: 3 minutes

Bananas! Packed with nutrients, rich in potassium and magnesium, they are considered one of the healthiest fruits and I DO HATE THEM.
Oh MYYY … back in Bali just the mere thought made me shiver in disgust and here is why:
