19-24 Oct 2009

Around Sangginggan Villa

Around Sangginggan Villa

We stayed at Sangginggan Villa which as a nice quiet location about 5-10 mins to ubud town via car. Had a nice room with a veranda overlooking the campuhan ridge where we had breakfast every morning. Service there was personal and excellent. Thanks Wayan for making our stay very comfortable and ferrying us to and from town :> http://sangginganvilla.com/
Great place to get away from the buzzle of city life ... where life is filled sounds of nature ... roosters crowing and of course the sound of Stanley's "cursing geko" :P

Makan Places

Makan Places

Ubud has no lack of wonderful places to eat ... days in Bali consist of having long lunches in beautiful warung and hanging around coffee places with free Wifi... :> Our favourite would have to be MADE's Warung, followed by the powerful coffee of Tut Mak ...

My torch seems to be the most used piece of equipment this trip as there were frequent blackouts. We managed to find Biah Biah cafe in the dark and had a "candle light" dinner.

Murni's Warung had a very nice setting (especially on the 4th floor down). The food was ok, however they had the COLDEST service in the Bali heat.

 
Yoga Space at Ananda

Yoga Space at Ananda

The big pavilion felt great ... spacious, fresh air, green padi fields, high thatch roof and most importantly ... great energy from 95 ashtangi to flow us through 6 days of led primary sessions ... Ekum inhale ... ... Dve exhale ... ...

 
Along the Campuhan Ridge Walk

Along the Campuhan Ridge Walk

A simple trek along the Campuhan ridge ... the Villa gave us a ride so that we start the walk on the north of Sanggingan. Took us just slightly over an hour to complete the walk to Ibah
