after busy and loud Seminyak stay we wanted to check Ubud, which we found busy and loud as well(august, high season), so we were a bit disappointed, but in a restaurant a french owner lady was recommending this place to us, since its near to Ubud, in the outskirts. we checked some pictures and tripadvisor and called them up, and thats it, we arrived to the real deal what we would wanted to experience in Bali, we found here everything! the rice-field tracking is amaizing! its on the must to do list! (anyway, when will i walk on ricefields again next?!) the cooking class teach you a lot, and it is very personal, you have the whole kitchen with a lovely young chef and than the great full dinner! (corn buns! yummy!) Tanah Cinta takes you to Ubud anytime when you want for 8USD and pick you up as well if you wish. and for visit Ubud for few hours that is cool, but to stay there was too tourist hunting side for me. (it is not as it was advertised. i would say it used to be, but now it is really just full on tourist, we saw that the outskirts of Ubud are the calm sides, that is now the "Ubud" what you look for)
The rooms are cute, and they have the home-made touch which makes the place very cozy.
it is kinda chilly at night, so the blankets are handy. (i never thought that im gonna get cold in Bali) if you just walk outside, you see woman taking bath in the river, kids flying kites, old man taking some huge leafy bunch on his had(i dont even know, where could they possibly live or are they really walking such a long distance to the village?) it is the what i wanted, this is how i imagined this island! sounds like a story and im in it!
