Everyone who comes to Bali will think of the Julia Roberts' movie 'Eat, Pray, Love'.
People dream about a love affair on this beautiful Island, I can tell after years of living on the island. In the end you'll find that you fall in love with the beautiful island itself and the peaceful Balinese.

Ubud is known for the traditional Hindu culture, It is also a town of artists and is known for its wood carvings. In this quiet town you will find famous restaurants, galleries, yoga shops, a monkey forest and the pasar. Ubud is a place to come for healing, yoga and meditation. If you want to live a full, happier and healthier life I will say: Do it!

Bali Belly

If you get the Bali Belly it can be really dangerous! It's a pain in the --- and it can stay for days :-(.   But for a upset stomach there is a magic pil, the traditional black crayon gunpowder pills. Really you can buy this at a pharmacy and you will quickly feel much better :-).

Amed my favorite spot for diving

Amed is a concentration of seven small villages in the east of Bali. About an hours drive from Candi Dasa. A small strip of fishing villages nestling in a much more rugged landscape than the rest of Bali.

For snorkeling Amed is my favorite spot. Here you can see so many special fish, corals, turtels and and even sharks.

Also travel to Tulamben nearby Amed
The most popular dive site in Tulamben is at the USS Liberty, at the massive cannon you can find the most beautiful and deepest diving points. The fish like to come close. You can see leaf fish, frogfish and pygmy seahorses.At Tulamben you can dive 24 hours a day, so if you want to make a spectacular night dive, then this is the place to be!

The Ruphia

If you get for the first time a Rupiah in your hand you feel realy rich. You think O MY GOD were do I need to put all this money. The rupiah felt more like Monopoly money. It's easily to spend around. Yes! Without thinking the money is gone.... Bali is cheap but if you go to tourist places than you pay the lottery.
