As you all know, I love to travel and visit beautiful places. However, if there’s one thing that really can kill the experience for me, it’s when a place is overflown with tourists. Unfortunately, this is usually the case in Bali.
But don’t be alarmed – we’ve found a solution to the problem: very early mornings. We wanted to visit the Tegalalang Rice Terraces (again), so we decided to get up at 4:50am to try to make it there in time for sunrise, and before all the tourists showed up.
The rice terraces of Tegalalang are situated about 20 minutes North of Ubud, and about 1,5 hours from where we live in Canggu. It was a cold drive up there, but what met us was absolutely stunning. The beauty of the Tegalalang rice terraces on their own is undeniable, but to get to experience it without the crowds was indescribable. Not just that, but we also avoided getting hassled by people selling post cards or other stuff I really don’t need. Last time we visited Tegalalang, I really didn’t enjoy it as much, because it was simply too crowded. This time, I loved it!
Our friends Alyona (@loulou_et_riri) and Stefano joined us up there, and Alyona brought her drone for us to film with. The result was absolutely mind-blowing! Nothing beats the perspective that drones can shoot. I kinda have to get a drone at some point 🙂
