Taman Ujung Water Palace

We obviously can’t get enough of Bali’s beautiful water palaces! After strolling around the Tirta Gangga Water Palace, our driver / guide Made drove us to another gorgeous water garden in Karangasem — Taman Ujung Water Palace, also known as “Taman Sukasada Ujung.” Two water palaces in one day seems monotonous but because both places were …

White Water Rafting at the Telaga Waja River in Bali

When you hear the word “honeymoon,” what do you think of? Candle-lit dinners? Sunset-watching? A romantic beach getaway? Luckily, we were able to squeeze all of those in for our Bali honeymoon.

Warung Kultur: Our Favorite Restaurant in Seminyak

Maybe it was honeymooners’ luck that led us to book a villa in a quiet part of Seminyak, away from the main road where all the famous restaurants are. From where we were staying, we were just a hop, skip, and jump away from what became our favorite restaurant in Seminyak: Warung Kultur! Warung Kultur is a …

Babi Guling and BBQ: Warung Men Agus and Barbie-Q German Beer Garden, Bali

Our 8th day in Bali was a full one! A visit to the expansive rice terraces and THREE temples all in one day used up all our energy and WE NEEDED TO EAT! So that night, we had dinner… not once but TWICE! Trying Babi Guling at Warung Men Agus I was really curious about Babi …
