Europe 2014

I have been meaning to put this post up forever. Last year I was fortunate enough to take an amazing journey through a few beautiful cities in Europe.

Some of the definite highlights for me were in Germany, France and the Netherlands. Because Pete (my husband) comes from Germany, we felt quite a connection there.

One of my favourite things to do is travel and find inspiration by experiencing the different cultures, sights, sounds and delicious food. Each city had its own wonderous delights to tempt us.

Here are some of my travel pics that I wanted to share with you, of our journey throughout Europe. We will definitly be going back there again very soon.

Namaste,

Amanada

Balinese Wedding

Just recently I returned to Bali to be a part of one of my best Balinese friends eldest sons wedding. What a privilege it was to be at such a beautiful event, I will treasure it forever.

I’d like to share some of the photos from the day with you all.

Namaste

Amanda :)

A stroll through Ubud

I’ve been fortunate enough to have been visiting Bali for the past 35 years. Most of my time is spent in the beautiful village of Ubud and surrounding areas.

It never ceases to amaze me that every time I come here I find something new and exciting to explore. Like most towns and cities all over the world, Ubud is ever evolving.

Some of these things I can see as a benefit to the place, but others I feel have taken away some of the spirit of Ubud, never the less it’s still an amazing place.

Here are some photos I took in an afternoon while strolling through Ubud. I hope you enjoy.

Namaste

Amanda :)
