We arrive in Ubud and I instantly notice it’s a lot more Westernised than Munduk up North. My initial first impressions of the main town is that it’s quite cute – lots of cafes, shops and restaurants lining the street. It’s bustling with people and super lively. It’s a nice change of atmosphere and quite cool to experience a completely new place in Bali.
I wake up to the sunlight pouring through the double French doors of our Balinese-inspired villa. A sheer canopy drapes over our king size bed to keep the mosquitos at bay. I snuggle my head into the soft white pillow and look over at Ciaran, half smiling, thinking back to the night we booked Munduk Moding Plantation and how thankful I am to finally be here.
As our AirAsia flight begins to make its descent, I turn to Ciaran and tell him how thrilled I am to be here in Bali. The plane makes a swift landing and we hustle off in an attempt to be the first in line at customs.
