12/4 bali cont’d with coincidental meet-ups!!!

標準

Thanks to Lois, we were able to get a driver to take us to Ubud and check out the scene.
Where Lois stays is in Depansar, which is close to the airport and more towards the south of the island.

on our way to the temple, we coincidentally ran into Doug and Karolina!!!

12/2 next up… BALI!!!

標準

another early morning to get things rolling.

went over towards the hotel where Jules was staying at around 5:15
and once i got there, we got on a car provided by the organizers of the namaste festival.

i was just amazed how there was no traffic at this time.
the whole time i was in jakarta, all I saw was really bad traffic and so many vehicles on the road. but not this morning! 🙂

got to the airport super early.
too early that we had to wait quite a bit at the airport.
got ourselves some food.

got on the AirAsia.
LCC Jakarta to Bali $70 thats a pretty nice deal…

first time for both of us and we are quite excited!!!

there was someone who came to pick us up and was dropped off at Lois’ house.

Lois is a Jivamukti teacher and an amazing holy being who has been living in Indonesia for more than 20 years.

i have to say the tempeh was the best tasting tempeh i have ever had.

it made me question all the tempeh that i had in the past…

its all about coming to the source.

i’ve been loving Bali so far.
can’t wait to see what it has to offer…
