Ubud is fantastic – a hot and steamy part of Bali, known to rain, even during the hot season, as it’s located at a higher altitude, and surrounded by jungles. The guest house I’d chosen seemed to be located in the middle of a load of rice paddy fields – I hadn’t realised that a car couldn’t drive up there. The taxi had to stop halfway up this hill and the driver had to phone the villa to find out where it was – the guy told the driver to wait while he came down to us, on a moped. Errr… there’s me, my 10kg rucksack and a smaller backpack slung on my front with my camera and travel essentials – how we gonna do this?! Well, of course, just get on!
