And so this is the last post from my honeymoon in Bali. We have definitely shot a lot and I hope you enjoyed the pictures and will consider Bali as a must-see destination for the future. I’m finishing these series with the post from our day in Ubud (a part of Bali that was beautifully shown in the Eat Pray Love movie). You can call it the true heart of Bali and its beauty can’t be compared to anything I’ve ever seen before.
We visited a Monkey Forest located in Ubud and I don’t think I’ve ever been this excited. I didn’t realise that there were going to be so many monkeys around and that they were going to be so close to people. We had been warned not to initiate any contact with them, but if they come to us – that’s ok. So I was quite careful walking around and also making sure I didn’t carry anything glittery, sparkly or basically anything that monkeys would want to steal (I thought my hat wasn’t a good choice of an accessory, but it went without any incidents). I had also been warned that maybe we shouldn’t buy bananas for them as they won’t be ok with just accepting one from you, they will follow and jump you until you give the rest of bananas to them. So all I saw was how they did exactly that to other people. They didn’t hurt anyone but they were really persistent. They also ended up robbing the banana stand which looked really funny to everybody except for the saleswoman who was chasing them out with a mop. I was probably trying to be too safe as I ended up not having any personal relationship with any of the monkeys, so I’ll leave it for my next visit to Bali.
After the Monkey Forest we were recommended to visit the Kupu Kupu Barong Resort’s terrace cafe for one of the best views of Bali. And I won’t describe it to you too much because I believe that pictures will speak louder than words in this instance. Breathtaking is what I think of it!
We then went to a coffee plantation where we saw different types of coffee beans growing on the trees. I have never seen it before so it was really interesting, We also tried Luwak coffee, but as I’m not a coffee drinker I didn’t really taste much difference.
So here it is, the end of the Bali posts. I hope you enjoyed my visual tour of this amazing place on Earth and I hope I’ll visit it again in the future! Thank you, Bali, for everything!
