Thank goodness for planes. Thank goodness there is a way to travel and visit places far away!
My New Year began in Tokyo’s Haneda airport, celebrating with all the other excited, albeit possibly tired travelers. My flight departed at 1a and I landed at 7:40a on the 1st in Denpasar, Bali. What a great way to start the New Year!
My plan was to go to Ubud for some healing, and then to Sanur to visit a friend and get some sun! I got all that along with a bit of fun!
In Ubud I stayed in a wonderful hotel, Maya Ubud. Did you know that ‘Ubud’ means medicine? And ‘Maya’ means illusion. Hmmm, did that mean I wasn’t going to be healed? Ha! To the contrary, I had daily yoga sessions, did some village trekking, was dressed in Balinese clothing, learned to make an offering, visited temples, and even visited an ashram! Here are some pictures of my travels with more to come!
At Maya Ubud…
At the start of a Village trek, I encountered a cow grazing nearby. I stopped to take pictures and in the midst of saying hello a baby calf walked over to greet me! It was the most amazing thing! Unafraid, this beautiful calf began to sniff my legs, nibble on my shoes and towel and we just looked into each others eyes with love and admiration. :)
And this was just the beginning. More to come! Stay tuned for Bali Part 2!
Happy Dreaming! :)
