The spiritual Side

While we were in Bali the lady who looked after our accomodation asked if we wanted to go to her local village, to see the ladies do a offerings ceremony. When travelling I love to see what the country is really about so I jumped at this opportunity. We had a truley amazing experience and it was something I will cherish for the rest of my life. We also spent a couple of days travelling to different temples I find the whole Hindu religion fascinating and their temples beautiful. A few of you asked where I stayed in Bali I spent 10 days in Ubud and 5 days in Seminyak. I loved Ubud as it was so quiet and relaxing, while Seminyak is very loud and fast paced and a little shock to the system after Ubud. OOOh yes the weird animal in the previous post was a Bear Cat he was so cute!

Ah the number of ceremonies I went to, this really does take me back there!!! The most epic was climbing to a high temple on Mount Gunung Agung for Galungan, the big festival in the same get up as those ladies! It was sweltering! Can't wait to hear more! Did you go to Tanah Lot?
