The Incredible Wayan Bawa, Our Bali Driver

I bet there are hundreds if not thousands of drivers around Bali.  But we were assured his English was excellent and very reasonably priced.  So we thought, why not.  We added him on Facebook and informed him of our arrival.

When Visiting Bali, Get Out The Tourist Area And See The Real Bali!!

So Bali. We visited and spent six weeks on this beautiful island.  Yes, we stayed in the tourist area of Legian.  But the real Bali is out there for you to capture and be in awe of.

The Ulun Danu Temple, In The Middle Of A Volcanic Crater

OMFG, yes I dropped the F-bomb.  The Ulun Danu Temple was one of the most incredible temples we had visited.  Not because of its beauty (although it was unique with the backdrop of the lake in the volcanic crater). But because I was an actual local for 5 minutes. More about that later on.

Yes, We Tried Some Coffee Luwak. Yes, It Was Disgusting!

Okay, so both Lee and I aren't exactly coffee drinkers. But they have a particular kind in Bali that is pretty famous. Coffee Luwak is the coffee in question. So we thought we'd pick some up for my dad who is a massive coffee drinker.

The Incredible Frankensteins Laboratory Cabaret Show in Bali

Frankensteins Laboratory is located in Seminyak, Kabupaten Badung. This location, unfortunately, doesn't have any parking, but I would guess that every local taxi driver knows this place well.

Angel to Angel Art of Silver in Bali

The Angel to Angel Art of Silver is a very striking building from the outside. We went to the shop Ubud, but I think they other shops around Bali too. This is technically a silversmith workshop and retail shop but from the outside, it looks like a royal palace.
