We found the opportunity to have a last farewell to beautiful Bali before departing for a very different island, Karimun Jawa.
We hired a car for the day with our friends from Fruit de Mer, Anne-Mieke and Gerrit and took off early to see as much as we could in one day.
First stop was for breakfast up in the hills opposite the Hindu Tabanan Water Temple. Higher up, the air was wonderfully cool and as we climbed upwards we had noticed lots of stalls selling mouth-wateringly plump red strawberries. We were all very pleased to discover strawberry pancakes on the menu for breakfast!
There was a big festival on at the temple – to bring blessings for the harvest – so we couldn’t go to the inner temple but it was lovely to watch everyone filing into pray and we enjoyed walking through the grounds by the tranquil lake.
