I can't tell you enough how much we needed this. If you have been following along on our stories you will know how much of a crap time we had in Ubud. Our first day and a half was excellent, despite the below par accommodation, but then when Carys got the dreaded Bali belly and we were in a grotty guesthouse for 3 days I almost broke. Family travel can be hard. The tough times are tough as f*ck but the highs can make you feel euphoric! We are spending the week in an @airbnb in the North of Bali and hope to relax, replenish and rejuvenate to take us on the next stretch of our time exploring Bali. Thanks to all of you who messaged me during these past few days. I can't tell you how much it helped to know you had all been there too 🙏🌎💕 #familygapyear#worldtravellers
This teeny tiny shot of one corner of a stall is the best I can do to sum up what it’s like trying to work your way through Chatuchak Market. So. Much. Stuff. Everywhere!! It’s considered the largest street market in the world for good reason. This maze of up to 15,000 stalls covering 14 hectares is literally impossible to navigate sensibly. I wondered around aimlessly and got completely lost, pulled up a plastic chair and people watched, munched down on some epic yummies and guzzled down fresh mango smoothies. Even if you don’t dig markets, this place will still blow your mind.
