After finishing the G-Adventures tour in Thailand my friend Reb and I travelled a little on our own and spent roughly five days in Bali. Although the weather was not as cooperative as I would have liked, we ended up visiting many amazing spots.
One day we took a cab that stopped at three locations, the first one being Pulina Coffee Plantation. I wasn’t exactly expecting much from a coffee plantation as I am not a coffee drinker, but I thought I might as well see what all the hype was about.
I was blown away by the stunning scenery that enveloped the plantation – amazing rice terraces. The coffee itself was amazing as well. We were given a tray of various coffees and teas, the lemon tea being my personal favourite.
The next site we visited that day was the famous Tegallalang Rice Terraces. By this point in the day the rain was coming down quite hard, so climbing through the terraces became more like an attempt to save yourself from sliding down every step.We ended up meeting a boy our age from New York and he ended up helping us through the rice terraces.
Although the weather may have been a deterrent to some, we found it made the experience all the more enjoyable as it just seemed to make the colours really pop and it was a nice change from all of the humidity we had been experiencing. These pictures seriously do not do it justice!
The last stop of the day was the Tegenungan waterfalls outside of Ubud. As expected they were great, the only downfall was how difficult it was to actually swim in the water because of how strong the water was coming down.
We eventually ventured back to our Airbnb for the night after hours of exploring. It was definitely a day for the books!
