Some observations from travels

Where you from? Where you going?

“Where you from?” and “Where you going?” are the two questions you get asked all the time by any Balinese on the street.  They are not being inquisitive or nosy, they use this to know where you belong on their big mental compass.  Liz Gilbert, on her famous book about being in Ubud, explained this quite well.  Balinese people are village people, they live within their group and knows where everyone was, where they came from and where they were going.  So when you bump into someone on the street, or anywhere around Bali for that matter, you will get asked these two questions.

Here are some wonderful images whilst walking along the streets of Ubud, Bali.

These were some of the many images captured in a matter of a couple of hours walking around Ubud.  Everywhere you turn you are welcomed by so many beautiful sights.  All you need to do is get out there and open our eyes (of course your camera shutter as well!)
