I finally arrived in Ubud, Bali and I’m pretty excited and am glad that I decided to take the project and take the risk to come here on my own!
I’m staying at this nice villa that has its own pool, and there’s a small fountain outside of my room which sounds very relaxing…I’m not sure if I explained it before but I’m here to work on a design project with someone that I came across on couchsurfing.org
I came to work in-house to oversee the foundation, design, and overall flow/user interaction of the site. The current HQ is actually the villa itself and there IS a small conference/office room but people can pretty much do work wherever they want…by the pool, overlooking the pool, in their rooms, or somewhere else in Ubud.
I talked to one of the founders, a local Indonesian, and one of their social marketing guys and WOW.
I’m pretty sure that I’m gonna come out as a different person after this work trip/experience!
I don’t know if I mentioned this before, but Ubud is the hub of art, culture, and spiritual things in Bali.
They told me that there’s this thing going on every friday morning called a dance walk where people just go out on the street, share their music and literally dance-walk on the streets and it sounds so fun and new that I’m definitely going to try it out, since I don’t really dance and when I travel I love to do things out of my comfort zone so I think it’s perfect!
They also have something called an ecstatic dance on friday nights where people just let go and let their body take control and just dance dance dance feed on and share each other’s energy and it sounds SO amazing that I can’t help but wish that it’s friday here already (it’s already saturday, boo)
There’s some dancing going on every sunday morning as well, I think that’s more of a spiritual one, I forgot (sorry, 24hrs and no sleep yet) but it also sounds exciting and they told me join them so I will definitely definitely do that!
Watching and being part of a community that just comes together to dance, let go, and have clean good fun? Count me in!!!
Ubud isn’t Ubud without the yoga classes (there are TONS here), and I’m gonna join one…I’ve always wanted to but never had the time/chance to do it and this is the perfect place to do it!
Meditating and doing yoga on hill tops, overlooking beautiful rice paddies, doesn’t that sound great?
There are also unlimited number of art and cultural related classes that anyone can take, lots of beautiful temples, etc etc!
There’s this 4day festival called Bali Spirit Festival where people just dance, meditate, celebrate
Ife and love all day for 4 freaking days it sounds amazing and so….hippie-ish I’m having an overload of feelings BUT it’s held on March so ugh guess I just gotta go back for it next time!
Scooter is the only way that people go around this place so they’re gonna teach me how to ride and operate one so looking forward to that as well.
Oh, and did I mention that along with all those amazing things on fridays, friday is also beach day?
And the amazing beaches in Bali’s just a scooter away?
….yeaaaah I’m definitely gonna love my stay here!
