I spent a few days in Ubud, the culture capital of Bali, where I learned about some of the amazing sculptures, paintings, jewellery and clothes that are created in the region. I also watched a traditional gamelan performance and Balinese dance show.
But my highlight was taking some time out to get fresh air on the Campuhan Ridge Walk.
I saw my first real life rice paddy (and wild snake) and lost hours watching the farmers plough the muddy fields with the help of water buffalos.
On the walk there is a perfectly situated cafe that serves incredible banana pancakes.
