Yeah, sure! Maybe your mom will like that wooden elephant or a penis bottle opener but in general buying souvenirs that you know will eventually end up as dust catchers is pointless. I saw the silver jewelry class as one of the most popular activities on Tripadvisor and I saved it in my memory. It’s not the cheapest thing to do in Ubud but you get to make your own piece and take it home. I found two deals for silver jewelry class: Chez Monique and Studio Perak. Studio…

Happy Nyepi everyone! Do you know that this is the most important holiday in Bali? We didn’t! It’s actually Balinese New Year. On Nyepi day everything stops. There is no travel (people need to stay inside the house), even airport is closed for this day! The point is that the evil spirits roam around Bali and everyone needs to stay still so they think the island is uninhabited and leave Bali alone for one more year. There can also be no fire and only low lights must be…

(We have more current posts on instagram :)) Some of you might remember that we’ve already fallen in love Ubud way back in August 2014. We stayed in a beautiful new house in the middle of the rice fields and just took some rest from all the heavy traveling. 8 months of constantly moving has its toll. So when we came into the house, it was pure bliss. Open shower, big bed and our own kitchen. Heaven! So when we were stuck in high season in Thailand and started…

Since Bali is getting so crowded, a lot of people want to explore beyond it. Lombok, Sumbawa, Flores. This is a 3-week travel itinerary from traditional Flores to hedonism in Bali and some serious snorkeling in between. P.S.: Click on the links of the cities to get information how to get from one place to another, where to find a room, where to eat and what transport to use.

People who traveled across Ljubljana, our home town, said it’s one of the cutest capitals in the world. It’s very relaxed with loads of cool cafes, nice parties and good food, not to mention the festivals in summer and all the hot wine in winter. You should see it! Here are 5 cities we could definitely live in. They’re all manageable and cute, have delicious cheap food, renting a motorbike is affordable, and there are places nearby to discover. 1. Ubud, Bali (Indonesia)   Ubud is a small…

Traveling for a long time means living minimalistic, right from the backpack and it gives you valuable lessons of taking care of importnant things and not spending too much on things you can’t use on the way. That means no souvenirs! Almost 🙂 Here are some of the best markets we’ve been in these months and are also appropriate for the ones with a tighter budget: 1.) Sunday night market in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Hands down, the best market in Asia 🙂 We were so excited about it after…

As long as we’re not too far from Bali, it’s still time to post something about the beautiful Balinese food and food from Nusa Tenggara islands. We lived 3 weeks in Ubud on Bali and we had the chance to taste a lot of local food, spent a week on Gili Air, crossed Lombok and Sumbawa. Currently we’re on Flores, eating mostly Ikan Goreng or rice with fried fish. It costs 10.000 IDR or 0,6 eur. For Mic a little bit more because he has to order extra…

Maybe you’re wondering why aren’t we crazily running around Bali, taking pictures and manufacturing posts. The reason is that we’ve both been here before and we chose the city we liked best. Ubud. It seems like everybody likes Ubud. But why? Well, one main reason was Eat, pray, love book from Elizabeth Gilbert. She found ‘worldly enjoyment and divine transcedence’ in Ubud and made hoards of American women do the same 🙂 I didn’t like the book, btw. But I loved Ubud 🙂 It has a charm. Beautiful…

1. Sonicare electric toothbrush I didn’t want to take it at first but one year is a long time without my brush. Best decision ever! Mic agrees. 2. Two ukuleles,flute and harmonica. Need I say more? 🙂

Although we’ve experienced so much this year, from dirty rooms in India, trekking in Nepal and Mentawai jungle (and we love the challenge!) it’s also nice to settle down for some time. If we had the money, we would probably stay for a longer period in Ubud. Bali is a country within a country. It’s small and you don’t need much time to go somewhere, roads are good, petrol is cheap, nature is beautiful, people are friendly, religion is Balinese hinduism which is very open, beaches and mountains…
