Hi there. I fell in love with the Ubud, but more importantly the Campuhan ridge the moment I arrived on it. Its amazing, in the middle of rice fields, hearing water rushing, view of jungle, view of every mountain in Bali---I couldn't ask for more. It feels like hours away from Ubud, but its only 7 minutes to the big grocery store.
Five things I cannot live without? Friends, Family, Serenity, Fresh fruit/veggies and Smiles welling up inside of me. Born and raised in Missouri in the states I have become an avid island girl and lived in the US Virgin Islands 13 years. I love adventures, going down unknown roads and paths, road trips and chatting up with strangers who become friends.
I can be posh or travel by backpack, I have learned extrememe flexibility in that arena. I do admit I admire the small touches. I am enjoying life as a journey now, not as the destination. I believe that can be an art that takes a lifetime to perfect. I am extremely artistic and have been making jewelry for 15 years now. I'm at the point where I want to design and leave the handwork to other people and just travel and see the world.
I love out of the way hidden and secret spots, I enjoy a good bargain, love the concept of bartering in the community and can't stop myself from smiling when I hear children laugh. Love to visit my family back home in the states, I am a very family oriented person and value my close ties tremendously.
Live your life at full speed without turn signals. :)
