if you (as I was not long ago) are sitting at home feeling crushed by the vicissitudes of life, boss on your arse like an angry boil, money worries constant, bleeding from both ends metaphorically, doing a damn fine job of impersonating a field full of cadavers, barely breathing….then…COME TO BALI.
Seriously Dudes, you can do it. I’ve just spent six nights in a perfectly fine home stay, hot water, wifi, delicious breakfast, comfy bed, lovely garden… a bit less than $17 Australian dollars a night !!! Yesterday I upgraded to a slightly more luxurious place with an even lovelier garden, about $20 a night !
All of this in seriously overdeveloped Ubud.
100 yards one way down the street is a boulevard lined with restaurants, souvenir stalls, hawkers, scooters and taxis, it’s pandemonium.
100 yards the other way are cool green terraced paddy fields, picture perfect, breath taking. Come on over, the living is easy.
