Snapshots from the “Island of the Gods” and its beautiful little neighbour. From the rice fields of Canggu to the vistas of the Bukit Penisula, Bali for me was an eccletic mix of landscapes, colours and culture. The monkey forest in Ubud was a blend of the serene and chaotic where you had to maintain a vigilant guard against mischievious little primates. Just getting to Ubud was testament to the constant surprises waiting around every corner of the island, as we found ourselves riding in the middle of a Hindu precession which we traversed for over a kilometre before seeing the last of in our rear view mirrors. Serangan and the Gili Islands were proof that in this part of the world even the marine landscapes below the surface were every bit as beautiful and captivating as those above.
