Travel Theme: Round

As part of Ailsa’s round theme this week on Where’s My Backpack, I am heading to Ubud, Bali.

Lotus pads in front of the Royal Palace. Last time I was there I also noticed that one of the abutting stone buildings had become a Starbucks coffee outlet. Shock, Horror. Is Ubud losing its soul?Image

The gardens of Ubud are luxuriant and adorned with beautiful stone statues and pots. The road from Denpasar to Ubud is home to thousands of stone masons and the drive is always so exciting. I would like to fit these rounded pots in my hand luggage!

And the beautiful round Ulegs in the Casa Luna Cooking School, Jalan Bisma, Ubud. I do have a fascination for these giant mortar and pestles.

  1. Wow, those eggplants are a stunning colour. You’re not the only one to covet the stone (& I loved the wood too) items that line the road on the way to ubud. There is something very beautiful about them. Happy Easter x

  2. The shock of the colour of those eggplants really woke me up! Beautiful, and such a cute shape. You do so well sorting through your photos to extract ones that fit the themes.
