Travel Blogs from Ubud
... split for the last few days before Lydia came. I found a really cool hostel in ubud and went there the next morning. That afternoon I met 4 other people staying there and we all went for dinner at an Indian restaurant, everyone else went out for drinks after that but I had to go to bed cause I had a headache (my body was probably confused cause I wasn't drinking alcohol finally!) The next day there was a group of 9 of us who all rented mopeds ...
... The first one I met told me “Down the road. 200 meters”.
Great. That would mean so much if I actually knew what meters equates to in feet. Actually, no that wouldn’t help either. I can’t estimate distance to save my life.
I think it roughly equated to two city blocks. I daringly crossed the street with honking cars and scooters aiming for me. There was a soccer field with a man waking two huskies. The sidewalk was nothing ...

us. The noise of the geckos, in
particular, is distinctive and indescribable; they would be great alarm clocks
if they didn’t have a tendency to go off at totally random hours.

TravelPod Member ReviewsPanorama Hotel Ubud
After looking for a place to stay and this being the only place left we had to book it, but it was clean and reasonable, but not hotel standard. I am use to staying in cheap hostels so if a posh hotel is what you are looking for then this is not the place, however, we were well looked after with free breakfast and a clean bed to sleep in with nice gardens and a view of rice paddies over the back.
