Ubud - I lost my heart again

I want to start my Bali travel diary at Ubud, because for me it was the highlight of our travels.
We rented Villa Blessings, a beautiful house in the middle of the rice paddies in a little village (some 15 minute drive outside of Ubud) and we were so happy there. I would recommend it to everybody willing to spend some time around Ubud. In the morning Wayan made us banana pancakes and fruit platters. He took care of everything we needed. We rented motorcycles and drove around for hours between the rice paddies, the jungle, the temples, smelling the food at the warungs (local restaurants), honking at the dogs on the street, to end our day at the pool at our house. At night, we would listen to a concert of frogs, lizards, crickets (and others I cannot identify) we lay on the daybed and just read our books and enjoyed to be in the moment.
I loved seeing the real side - women carrying things on their head, a family of 5 people on the motorcycle, people working in the rice paddies up to their knees in the mud, men bathing in the river, women washing their clothes in the river, girls getting ready for the traditional dances, the music, the smoke at sunset (they burn their rubbish), the offerings in the morning, the odor of the incense, the kindness of the people, the smiles, the 1€ mie goreng, the numerous Bintang with my love, massages and flowerbaths with my girl.
Olivia drove on the motorcycle with Laurent and she was the happiest girl in the world.
I love how she is always in for a new experience, she is really becoming a citizen of the world and I love it!
