I could stay here a long time…

I first came to Ubud on 28 February 2009 and, back then, I had been writing in my journal about my travels around the world.

A year later I had a look back at what I had written about on that first day here in Ubud – amid many words of praise for Bali my exact words about Ubud were “I could stay here a long time’.

Ubud is a nurturing and healing place full of smiles.  It has a magnetic energy that attracts open minded, artistic souls and those interested in mind, body, spirit.  There is a special, delightful feeling about being here.

In fact, the very name, ‘Ubud’ is derived from the word ‘Obat’ – which means ‘medicine/healing”!

It was destined to be a town full of spa’s and much more… a spiritual centre.

…..I feel like something
deep in my soul
has lived here for eternity…..
