You’ve probably noticed that we are in Bali, if you are following Ulrika’s instagram, and our plan is to stay here for a while. Having a passport from for example Sweden, you can go to the VoA-counter (Visa-on-Arrival) when you land in Bali and for 35 US dollars, you can apply for an extended visa and have the opportunity to stay in Indonesia for 60 days . It was what we did and now our plan is to stay here for two months, where the first month is spent in Ubud to fix a lot of things before Ulrika’s family arrives. Bali is one of the few places on earth that feels like home for us and it will be awesome to show Ulrika’s family this gem on planet earth. However, we hope that the volcanoes in the area remain calm as we do not want to relive all the fuss of canceled flights and lost passports, which happened to Rebecca, Ulrika’s sister, the last time we were here.

Ni som följer Ulrikas instagram har säkert sett att vi numera befinner oss på Bali och vi har tänkt att stanna här ett tag. Har man pass från exempelvis Sverige så kan man gå till VoA-disken (Visa-on-Arrival) när man landar på Bali och för 35 US dollar så kan du ansöka om förlängt visum och då har du möjlighet att stanna i Indonesien i 60 dagar. Det var det vi gjorde och nu är vår plan att vara här i två månader. Första månaden spenderas i Ubud med att fixa en massa saker innan Ulrikas familj kommer hit. Bali är en av få platser på jorden som känns som hemma för oss och det ska bli väldigt kul att få visa familjen denna vackra plats på jorden. Dock hoppas vi att vulkanerna i området håller sig lugna då vi inte vill återuppleva allt trassel med inställda flyg och förlorade pass som hände för Rebecca, Ulrikas syster, förra gången vi var här.

The nature is one of the things we love about Bali.

But first we ended up in Kuta after a long travel day. We found a really nice, cheap hotel in one of the alleys behind the party streets in Kuta and the hotel had an amazing pool.

The water was so clear that it created an optical illusion. We tested out how we would look like if we had short legs. Pontus first!

And Ulrika with short legs. The pool also looked quite shallow, but Ulrika had to stand on her toes in parts of the pool!

One night in Kuta is enough for us and we left the party city the day after, heading for Ubud. March is right in between rain and dry seasons, so we got caught in the rain trying to reach our home for the month.

We live just outside of Ubud, and this is our main road in our village.

We have an awesome view and the only noise we hear is from night animals and the river that is just beneath us. Pictures from our place will come in another blog post.

Bali is a place where you find a lot of hippies, so you will love this place if you’re in to veganism, raw food and yoga! Especially Ubud has a very chill atmosphere 🙂
