Re: glad to be aboard
Sorry to hear about Ubud. When I was there we stayed for about $30/day which included two meals each for 3 people, and didn't see but a small handful of tourists. They were all down at the beaches.
Sigh. Another secret spot scratched off the list.
Often uninformed, seldom undecided.
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. Mark Twain
