A mecca for artist over the years, Ubud is filled with restaurants, art gallerias, antiques shops and little clothing boutiques. At times it is a little overwhelming but to get away from the taxi calls and massage requests, Beau and I headed to the the temples. A favorite of ours, the Tirta Empul temple is centered around a fresh water spring that bubbles up through sand to a moss and fern filled pool. I could have stood for hours watching the turquoise water and sand whirl around. It was mesmerizing and calming. Our other refuge, mainly from the heat, was the Ubud Monkey Forest. The trails through the lush flora and fauna were vibrating with little balls of energy, the monkeys. Every moment with the monkeys was fun, exciting and unexpected… just don’t bring any bags unless you want to meet them up close.
- In 2008 we (Meggan and Beau) set out to see the world and start a business. Since then we have visited 48 countries and we’re just getting started. Travel and design go hand in hand. Whether we’re on the other side of the planet, or down the street we always find things to inspire us.
