365 Places: Alam Jiwa

Day 55: Alam Jiwa, Nyuh Kuning, Bali, Indonesia

Today, I am posting again about Alam Jiwa, the beautiful place I wrote about yesterday in 365 Places: Nyuh Kuning and Garry wrote about inThe Soul of Nature.

This is a truly amazing place, surrounded by little ponds, fountains and waterfalls, where the water from which all comes off the rice fields nearby. Here are some images of this very special place.

Day 54: Alam Jiwa, Nyuh Kuning, Bali, Indonesia

Today I write this post from the the very beautiful village of Nyuh Kuning, where we are staying as guests of my uncle, Garry Benson, who also writes for Geokult Travel. His most recent post is also about this lovely little village, whose name means Yellow Coconuts. The village is located close to Ubud, in the heart of Bali.

Our rooms are amazing, with views of the rice paddies, little shrines everywhere and an indoor/outdoor bathroom (something I am obsessed with in Bali). The only challenge is the very slow wifi – I have been trying to upload images since last night and they are still loading.Only one image uploaded while we were there – this beautiful lotus from the garden pictured above.

When we return to Sanur, I will write another post with some images from this beautiful, peaceful place.

One thing worth mentioning in passing is that Ubud and the surrounding villages are very conscious of the environment and are focused on being sustainable – you can check out this great website Ubud: Now and Then for more information.
