As you might remember, before moving to Australia, I spent one week in Ubud on Bali, doing Yoga and simply just live each day as it comes. Many of my friends were referring to the whole Eat, Pray, Love thing (as - in my case - Beijing = eat, Bali = pray, Melbourne = back to my love) - haha- but I have to say I had times when I felt a bit predictable going to Bali by myself.
It was not the first time for me on Bali though (actually my third time) and when I was searching for nice places to go by myself, Bali kept on popping back into my mind. Beautiful landscape, nice people, safe for traveling alone as a girl, nice spa's and (above all) an amazing place to take photographs. So I booked a flight and just hoped Ubud would not be completely over-crowded by mid-30 women looking for love :)
I had a really great time, doing my yoga, listening to the crickets in the ricefields at night, eating yummy organic food, wandering the backstreets of Ubud taking pictures. For sure Ubud has changed quite a bit the last years, some changes are good, some changes not so much. It is still a place full of beauty. Hope I managed to capture some of it on this pictures. Enjoy!*K
