Travel Blogs from Ubud
I know you can Google all of this, but I'm compiling it for you. I found it really interesting and thought you would, too (if you didn't know it already).
The country of Indonesia is comprised of 18,306 islands (!), spanning 3,400 miles. 922 of the islands are inhabited. Bali is one of the 33 Indonesian provinces with a population of ~3.9M …
... boats, it was time for another yoga class at Radiantly Alive. I don't know what I was getting myself into with this one, which was called "Fly High".

... the shopping debacle the day before, I took Lilli into Hanoman village (next to Ubud) to look for DVDs. After searching for a bit, Lilli found a dress shop where she bought two dresses. Thank god, now we could return with mission accomplished.
