So the place we stayed in Ubud was just down the road from the Monkey Forrest. Yep, that’s a real place! And these little stinkers were all kinds of cute…until they turn aggressive and then watch out. /home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/7f1/35191130/files/2014/12/img_1196.jpg Husband made a fast friend by bringing a banana with him. Whether it’s just to fulfill a stereotype or not, these monkey were going bananas for bananas. They had small stands all through the forrest where you could buy a few bananas and be climbed on by a monkey. /home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/7f1/35191130/files/2014/12/img_1206.jpg This girl turned out to be pretty sweet, and sat contentedly on husbands shoulder while finishing her snack. We did see a few get nasty, and one attacked a tourist by jumping on her backpack and climbing to her head where he proceeded to hiss and growl at anyone who tried to dislodge him. It was terrifying, and a bit hilarious to watch the little guy hold his ground. In the end he gave up and the girl got away unharmed. /home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/7f1/35191130/files/2014/12/img_1215.jpg
If you make it to Ubud, definitely come say hello to these little buds.

Tegalalang Rice Terraces

While in Bali, we made a few tourist stops to see the amazing wonders of the island. One of the places we visited were the rice terraces in Tagalalang. There are seriously layers upon layers of rice growing as far as the eye can see./home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/7f1/35191130/files/2014/12/img_0968.jpg
We learned that while these terraces are more for show, balinese families do tend their own terraces and harvest their own rice, which is a dietary staple. Many families’ rice fields have passed down from generation to generation.

The short story is, the husband is working for this bonkers awesome startup in the Bitcoin space, and they decided to come out to Hubud in Ubud for a two week team building/get a ton of stuff done get-away. So while handsome face works 12 hour days, I’ll be exploring this gorgeous paradise!
