Bali

Voor ons voelde het hier eigenlijk echt als vakantie. Wat langer op 1 plek blijven, alles is iets luxer en dus ook een stuk duurder. Beach clubs, restaurants. Eigenlijk merk je in Bali niet dat je in Azië bent aangezien het zo toeristisch is en volgebouwd. Wij noemde het Spanje met rijstvelden en apen. 

Het voelde natuurlijk ook anders omdat Max gezellig 3 weken langs kwam! Om Max gelijk te laten zien hoe het backpacken is, sliepen we de eerste twee nachten in een hostel in Canggu. Ik moet zeggen, dit was wel een heel erg mooi en luxe hostel. Helaas waren alleen onze kamergenoten minder leuk, deze kwamen midden in de nacht dronken thuis en lagen vervolgens te snurken alsof hun leven er van af hing. Maar goed, ook dat hoort er bij. Canggu is een badplaats aan de westkant van Bali. Veel mensen komen hier naar toe om te leren surfen aangezien de golven daar perfect voor zijn. Zo heeft Thom daar ook een dag een surfles gevolgd en dat ging super goed. Canggu staat ook bekend om de vele hippe beachclubs, hier hebben we dan ook lekker een avondje cocktails gedronken. Dit moet je alleen niet te vaak doen, want de prijzen zijn Europees en hoger.

Na Canggu gingen we naar Ubud. We huurden een super mooie villa met zwembad. Eigenlijk het middelpunt van Bali en dus konden we vanuit hier met onze scooters overal naartoe. Zo zijn we een dag naar het monkeyforest geweest. Een bos van 12,5 hectare, waar geen muren of hekken omheen staan, midden in Ubud. Hier leven ongeveer 700 apen. Je kunt hier door heen wandelen en de apen bekijken. Heel erg leuk om te zien, voor mij minder leuk is dat de apen op je sprongen om te kijken of je eten bij je had. Max had op een gegeven moment zelfs 4 apen op en om zich heen hangen. Gelukkig vond Max het juist wel leuk. 

Ook zijn we sieraden wezen winkelen, vlakbij Ubud zit namelijk de oude fabriek van Buddha to Buddha. Zij zijn, na dat Buddha to Buddha over gingen op een andere grotere fabriek, voor zichzelf begonnen. Ik heb hier een armband, ring en 2 paar oorbellen gekocht voor een hele fijne prijs. Ook Thom heeft een mooie leren armband gekocht. 

Een andere leuke bezienswaardigheid in Bali zijn de Tagalalang rijstvelden. Natuurlijk ook wel een van de meest toeristische bezienswaardigheden van Bali. Helaas groeide er op het moment dat wij hier kwamen, niet veel rijst en kleurde de velden over het algemeen meer bruin als groen. Maar goed, we hebben hier eerst heerlijk op een terrasje gezeten en daarna hebben we rondgelopen door de rijstvelden. We vonden uiteindelijk een hoek waar weinig toeristen kwamen en hier heeft Thom zijn drone opgestegen en prachtige foto’s gemaakt.

Bali heeft twee vulkanen op het eiland, een van die vulkanen was pas nog uitgebarsten en mocht je daarom ook niet op. Wat wel kon, is op de andere vulkaan, die er tegenover lag. We kozen er voor om de sunrise trekking te doen. We werden om 02:00 ’s nachts opgehaald en konden om 04:00 beginnen met lopen. Het begon nog redelijk vlak maar al snel werd het steeds pittiger. Helaas voelde Max zich ziek en heeft hij halverwege af moeten haken. Thom en ik zijn doorgegaan. Het laatste stuk was echt klimmen, dit was echt heel erg zwaar maar na 2 uur klimmen kwamen we op de top en werden we beloond met een prachtige zonsopgang. Echt adembenemend mooi. Thom heeft ook hier met zijn drone prachtige foto’ s kunnen maken. Om 08:00 begonnen we aan de daling. Ik moet zeggen, naar beneden was ook erg zwaar. Niet persé zwaar omdat je moet klimmen, maar meer zwaar aan je knieën omdat je elke keer naar beneden moet stappen. De losliggende stenen maakte het ook niet erg makkelijk. We waren echt kapot maar voldaan toen we beneden aankwamen. Het was pas 11:00 toen we terug kwamen maar veel hebben we die dag niet meer gedaan omdat we zo moe waren.

Verder hebben we in Ubud wat rond gereden op de scooter, heerlijk gegeten, tempels bekeken en lekker van onze villa en zwembad genoten. Na een week Ubud werd het tijd voor de volgende plek. We verlaten Bali en gaan naar Nusa Penida. Een klein eiland ten oosten van Bali.
