L. on the Hunt in Ubud
The second destination in Bali: Ubud.
After some time relaxing at the pool, we went out to see the city center.
Ubud is knownas the art capital of the island. Many painters, writers and musicians live in Ubud.
Walking down the streets we bumped into a Starbucks. I was in desperate need for coffee.
Delicious Indonesian food, fresh fruit shakes and candlelights. I highly recommend this restaurant. More about this hotspot will follow soon.
10.00 am and Renwe is drinking a Bintang beer. As the temperature was super hot in the early morning it felt like 15.00 in the afternoon.
We were looking forward to our visit to villas & spa The Purist for weeks. Our excitement rewarded, we were impressed by the beauty of the place.
At the Purist SPA, I had the most enjoyable and amazing healing massage session I’ve ever had before. It was hurting because there were lot’s of problems with my back (laptop) and legs (fashionweeks) but despite the pain, it was super relaxing. This is how a massage should be.
After the spa treatment and some time relaxing at the pool, we enjoyed a delicious and healthy lunch. More about this hotspot will follow soon.
Another amazing experience was the day with Dewa our driver for one day in Ubud. We started in Celuk. The famous village in Bali with the art of gold and silver crafting.
Ubud is located in the strategic location with the real nature environment. The nature is so beautiful.
Smelling pure Balinese coffee.
After a walk through the garden, we got the opportunity to taste different coffees, teas and to smell different spices. So impressive, the ground in Ubud is like magic. All people live from nature, from fruit, vegetables, spices, rice, sugar and cotton. All products grow in own garden.
After the sights in Ubud is was time for the second part of the tour. The Village. Dewa invited us to his village. We started with a tour through the garden, were he told us everything about the food and living in Bali, the life in the village.
After the tour, it was time to get to work. The cookingclass.
As you can see we this meal was real homemade. We started with chopping the ingredients for the spices for the chicken and the fish. Making your own curry is a bit more work than buying the paste in the supermarket, but ohw boy after trying this you don’t want the products from the supermarket anymore.
The result: Yes we did this!! The cookingclass was an great experience. The food was more than delicious. More about the cookingclass and the ingredients will follow soon.
The best meal I had in Bali, so far..
Dessert, Fried banana with sugar syrup from the garden.
The traditional Balinese market. Renwe and I woke up at 06.00 am to buy fruit.
Delicious healty and organic shakes at Sari Organic. For those who visited Ubud a well known place. I will write an review about this hotspot.
Coconut pie to end our great our great time in Ubud.
