FOTD – Friday August 28

The streets of my town seemed a little bland for my post today, I took the camera on my morning dog walk and came back with nothing that fitted the task.  So I have decided to go into my photo archive, to look for a landscape or street scene that had a forground with an interesting subject.

These stairs mark the start of the Campuhan Ridge Walk in Ubud. This is the time of year that I would usually visit for a month, now my photos from past trips have become even more precious.

 

The business of Bliss – Ubud

lotus-2354642_1920My visit to Ubud got off to a very shakey start last Sunday. Life has now settled into a routine of exotic breakfasts, yoga, swimming, hiking, meditation and dinners of fresh locally grown delicacies.

Apart from sorting out our go-to place when the windows and door start rattling (under out sturdy dining table) and sleeping with a grab bag close to the bed, we have adjusted to the occasional earth tremor disturbing our sleep.

A daily yoga practice has improved my posture and gait. I now feel like I am suspended by a piece of string when I walk. The rains have come early and the nights are cool, each evening I visit the meditation centre next door for an hour. Ubud is truly a treat for all the senses, and I have another two weeks to enjoy.
