20.09.13 - BALI Part 3 – Ubud

An inland town teeming with tourists, hawkers and vehicles, Central Ubud can at times be a little overwhelming. If buying a penis shaped bottle opener or toad kite isn’t your thing I would suggest hiring a scooter and exploring Ubud’s surrounds. A mere five minutes from the city and you will be amongst lush rainforest, terraced rice fields and historic temples. A much more authentic experience awaits…

12.09.13 - BALI Part 2 – Nusa Lembongan Island

This is the second part of a recent trip to Bali. After the bustling streets and hectic night life of Kuta, it was a nice change to arrive on the chilled Nusa Lembongan island. The next five days would be a mix of surfing, snorkeling, scootering, eating and relaxing…

07.09.13 - BALI 2013 part 1

From beautiful beaches to tropical rainforests, massive nightclubs to ancient temples, crowded streets to deserted rice terraces, Bali really is a place of contrasts. These contrasts and extremes all add to it’s attraction and make it a photographers dream.
 
I recently visited Bali with some family and friends and we all had an amazing experience. Whether you are into, surfing, shopping, diving, hiking, yoga, religion or just relaxing there is something for everyone. We only had two weeks there but really got a taste of what Bali is all about. I have plenty of photos from the trip and this is just part one of three! Enjoy : )
