INCREDIBLE INDIA: A ROAD-TRIP IN THE SOUTHERN STATES

It has been a few years since I lived in India (I did an internship at a 5-star hotel in Mahabalipuram, you can read what it was like here) My parents and sister came to visit me whilst I was there and we did an amazing road trip through Kerala and Tamil Nadu. I, unfortunately, lost all my pictures when my computer crashed so I did not have any pictures of this trip. Luckily my dad has backups of everything and he still had tons of amazing pictures from this road trip. In this post, I will show you some of the highlights of incredible India. I will show you lots of amazing pictures (My dad did an amazing job of capturing this unique country) and what it typically looks like. I might have put 1 or 2 pictures at the wrong city, don’t judge me on that, we had thousands of pictures and some got mixed up a bit (oopsies).

THE BEST OF UBUD, BALI: A COMPLETE TRAVEL GUIDE

Ubud is located in the central foothills of the Gianyar regency, on the island of Bali, Indonesia. Ubud was made into one of Bali’s most famous destinations when it appeared in the movie “Eat, Pray, Love’ with Julia Roberts.  It still encompasses what I envision authentic Indonesia should look like. Lush green rice fields, waving palm trees, friendly locals and cheap but delicious food. It was definitely one of my favorite stops during my May 2018 exploration of the tropical island. Ubud is known as the spiritual home of the island, but your local experience wouldn’t be complete without a wander around the rice fields, lunch at one of the many local coffee shops, an afternoon with some monkeys, or a visit to one of the many beautiful temples. It, therefore, makes for a perfect relaxing getaway and offers you a unique insight into Balinese living.
