Hello my dears,
today I did a tour through the North of Bali. It started at 7:30 am.
Nature pure! Experience pure!
We started our tour from Kerobokan, which is where we live. First, after one hour driving, we reached a coffee plantation, which is known for the Luwak-Coffee. Luwak Coffee is a famous and the most expensive coffee in the world. In the plantation we saw a lot of fruits growing, for example the pineapple. Did you know that pineapple grows from the earth? And just one pineapple fruit grows on each plant?? So nice to see. They also gave us a few sorts of teas and coffees to try and they tasted so natural because they did not have any additives. Of course the most interesting part was to see the Luwak himself and the story of the Luwak coffee. They were also selling the Luwak coffee and fresh earned lemongrass tea, which I bought as souvenir for my family and friends.
After visiting the plantation, we drove over a mountain, which was about 1400 meter high and there we had such a beautiful green view. That –by the way- was on our way to the well known GitGit-Twin-Waterfalls in the North of Bali and in the middle of pure nature between bamboo, coffee and cocoa. It was really fun because we could jump into the waterfalls. The water was so clear and clean and fresh. And girls- it is a nice place to take pictures in the middle of the whole green nature. Afterwards, on our way back we stopped at a place where a lot of sweet, cheeky monkeys were already waiting to be fed.
Apart from that, it was so nice to see how enthusiastic the locals are about the football world cup. There were so many flags distributed everywhere, even in the middle of the jungle. In my opinion, most of the times, it was the German flag we saw waving.
At this point it was already 1pm so we decided to have lunch in a little cute restaurant on our way. We had a fantastic view over rice fields and the food was very tasty.
On our way to the UNESCO-Rice fields we did a little stop at a mini zoo. They had some really interesting animals like snakes, huge iguanas, scorpions, parrots and my favourite one was the Luwak. She was sooooooo cute and sooooooo lovely. You could hold all of them and cuddle with them 😉 okay probably not with the snakes but anyway. 😀
Then further at the rice fields, it was interesting to see how the locals work there and how the earning of rice works in fact.
A very nice day but now back to studying.
