In Bali I enjoyed some quality beach time as well as a trip up to Ubud to see the rice terraces. The long drive up to the terraced rice fields north of Ubud was definitely worth the investment. They are Bali’s most photographed attraction and what the average person visualizes when they think of Bali. After leaving the rice fields, our next stop was the nearby Gunung Kawi temple. The temple of Ganung Kawi was a lovely example of the traditional open air Hindu temple including a holy water pool for bathing and elaborate stone carvings and shrines. Very peaceful and serene indeed!
