One Day in Ubud (Itinerary)

Sacred Monkey Forest, Ubud

The beauty of Ubud is that there are so many things to do, regardless of what you're interested in. Love culture? You have your fill of temples here. Yogi at heart? Take your pick of the yoga retreats dotted around. Foodie? You can eat to your heart's content for a really reasonable price. 

But what if you don't have time on your hands? If this is the case with you, then there are some main attractions that you can hit that won't cost you the earth but still give you a feel for the place. 

Obviously, if you can, try and spend at least 3-4 days in Ubud, as then you won't feel like you're rushing around too much but sometimes schedules don't allow that. 

So here's a 1-day itinerary for seeing the best of Ubud.

As the evenings are getting longer and the temperature dropping, I find myself taking up the position of reading while wrapped in a blanket on the sofa more and more. The combination of warmth, a good story to get lost in and maybe even a few candles thrown in for good measure is one that makes me relax completely after a long day or long week working. 

Seeing as I only have 4 more books left to complete my yearly challenge of reading 30 books (which I think I might go over), I've lined up some fab titles to get stuck into over the next few months.

8 Must-Have Travel Accessories I Can't Live Without

8 Must-Have Travel Accessories I Can't Live Without

Contains gifted items (*) and affiliate links

Whether I'm travelling for 5 days, or 5 months, there are a number of things that I always pack in my suitcase or carry-on that I use time and time again. I always try and make sure everything I take with me earns its keep, as I hate to see unnecessary space being taken up that could be used for bringing back keepsakes or food from a trip!

These are the best travel accessories I've found to help me on my journey from going to the airport to arriving at my destination.

Attempting a 10x10 Travel Capsule Wardrobe

Attempting a 10x10 Travel Capsule Wardrobe

Over my past few holidays, I've managed to do something I never thought possible: I've managed to travel with just a carry-on. 

If you told me that I would be achieving this three or four years ago, I would have laughed in your face and walked off with my overstuffed hold luggage in tow. But over the past few years, I've been able to cram everything I need into a wheely carry-on case. 

I think my road to minimal packing started when I went backpacking in 2017, as I had to carry everything with me on my back in a 60l backpack. I just couldn't afford to overpack, as everything in that bag had to earn its keep. 

Also, my last few trips haven't been long ones. They've all been under a week, meaning I've only had to bring the necessities for that time period. In the past, this wouldn't have stopped me filling a big suitcase to the brim with things I knew I wouldn't need but added in any way, but somehow I've managed to convert to the carry-on only life. 

On my trip to Barcelona a few weeks ago, I also wanted to set myself another challenge: I wanted to try the 10x10 capsule challenge. 

If you don't know what the 10x10 is, it's when you stick to a capsule wardrobe consisting of only 10 pieces of clothing to create 10 looks. Sounds horrific right? However, as I knew I had limited space in my bag, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to test myself and see if I could actually stick to 10 items. You normally do this over 10 days, but as I would need an outfit change for the evenings, I thought I'd change the rules a bit to suit my trip.

Here's how I got on...
