What do you do if you have nothing planned for the next day, but don’t want to hang out at the pool or the beach again? Exactly! You grab some of your friends plus your scooters and follow the streets up North. So we met in the morning in Seminyak and just started driving.
I have been to the North of Bali once before with a driver and it’s so much more fun if you go there by scooter. Of course the winding roads in the mountains are a bit scary at first, but as you go you start feeling more and more comfortable with it. Once you’re on top of the mountain you get an amazing view of the rice terraces and the volcano.
That day I also experienced my first rain in Bali. We were lucky it didn’t last that long, but it became so strong that we had to stop our scooters and wait under a roof for the clouds to pass by. That was when we decided to go back home. On our way we passed some traditional markets with lots of fruit and vegetables and also had a short break at one of the lakes. Since we were not able to see everything there is to see in that one day we are planning to do an extended tour including one or two overnight stays up there.
