Campuhan Ridge Walk || Bali Photo Diary

We found this nature walk on Lonely Planet and decided it looked both doable and beautiful.  So off we went!  Note to self, don’t go around mid day, it’s hot and humid and it turned out to be about 11km start to finish for us.  We were exhausted by the end! The majority of the […]

Balli Photo Diary || Ubud Monkey Forest
