Bali, beginning in Ubud

We began our Bali adventures in the cultural heart of the country; Ubud. Ubud 1.5 hours after leaving Denpasar airport we arrived in Ubud just as the sun was setting. Although there are lots of taxis waiting at the airport, we'd prebooked a driver for 300,000 rupiah to make the start of our journey as easy… Continue reading Bali, beginning in Ubud

Wutai Shan – horrific weather and lunch with monks

I'd been really looking forward to visiting Wutai Shan for a few weeks now. All the travel guides had said how amazing the mountain ranges near by were too hike, not too mention the vast number of temples and Buddhist shrines the region has to offer!    We woke in the morning to the sound… Continue reading Wutai Shan – horrific weather and lunch with monks

Flip flops and cable cars (Chongqing)

  We remembered to buy breakfast the night before so woke up to wonderfully refreshing watermelon and bananas this morning.      We then headed down to the river front to find a park that we could see on our city map. The route to the park wasn't very scenic... We left our hostel walking past… Continue reading Flip flops and cable cars (Chongqing)

Yichang: the Three Gorges Dam 

After the meaty vegetables last night, Yichang has not done much to redeem itself today....  Luckily I like a hard mattress to sleep on because the one at our hostel was non existent (it was literally a bottom sheet over the wooden planks of the bed frame). Leah on the other hand didn't get much… Continue reading Yichang: the Three Gorges Dam
