The monkey forest in Ubud is the place for monkey business in Bali. Here I share where to stay and how to make the most of a visit.

People like hotels that feel like home. I disagree. Strongly. While I technically don’t have a home right now, I think the whole point of staying in a hotel is that it ain’t like home. I want crisp linens and someone who makes my bed (a habit I have not gotten into ever not even as an adult), I love a minibar and pretend it’s always free, and I love making a mess within 5 minutes because I know I can leave the next day and will just move said mess into my suitcase.
No, really, I don’t mind that hotels are nothing like a home. Having that said, though, there are some I would like to make my home.

A Foodie's Guide to Ubud Restaurants for the best Balinese and international eateries, from casual to fancy, for breakfast, lunch & dinner.

I did not stay in Ubud for very long and only realized that it definitely hadn’t been long enough when it was too late. Ubud is quite wonderful and despite being very touristy I immediately liked its vibe and its restaurant scene.
Honestly, I was not a big fan of Indonesian food in general, but Ubud may as well have been on a different planet – the food options were amazing and I was sad not to get to eat everywhere I wanted. Or to eat certain dishes again and again. Yes, I’m looking at you, Gado Gado!

Want to know why the Amankila in Bali is such an amazing resort? The view, the beach, the infinity pool - as easy as ABC to fall in love with it!

Volcanos and I are not a match made in heaven. Which is sad because I like the idea of a volcano and getting close to one. However, so far it hasn’t happened.
Last year in Borneo, Mount Kinabalu was shaken by an earthquake a few weeks before my planned trip and roads became impassable. So instead of writing a guide to hike up there, I wrote a post called “Of not climbing a mountain”.

Yes, another list of best things to do in Bali - some things are really not to be missed whether you are here for the first or tenth time!

It was a bit ironic that my Trip of Wonders with Wonderful Indonesia meant to showcase that Indonesia has so much more to offer than just Bali because people seem to love Bali, whether they have been or are still dreaming of going. In fact, it seems some even seem to think Bali is a different country altogether or don’t even consider the rest of Indonesia.
