Bali September 2014
more of my Bali adventures here
On the first day we drove to the famous Gunung Kawi and Pura Tirta Empul temple which was a 40 minutes away – my favorite temples so far. When you visit the Pura Tirta Empul there is another temple on top of the hill which is visited rarely. A very kind priest welcomed us and proudly showed us around telling us the temple’s history. He was so nice!
Afterwards we followed our Google Maps route to Gunung Kawi. Remember do not always trust Google Maps routes on Bali! Unfortunately, we weren’t brought to the actual entrance but at the end of a street where locals welcomed us. Apparently we weren’t the first once to find this way. They kindly offered to bring us down to the temple but we declined with thanks and tried to find our way down on our own. At some parts we were quite lost and one local was kind enough to show us the way down. What an adventure! In the end it was so worth it and the view on top onto the rice terraces was so beautiful.
More of Bali is coming up!
