Day 303 - Lake Bratan
Sometimes the way to the destination is so nice that you forget about the actual destination and you feel like going on forever after passing your destination.
After going to Mt. Batur yesterday, it made sense to head to lake Bratan and the Ulun Danu temple today.
While the Ulun Danu temple is nice and the location is great, it's the way really that make the journey worthwhile and here you want to come by motorbike and not packed in a bus.
I enjoyed the driving so much that I decided to continue on to lake Buyan and lake Tamblingan where despite the fog I still continued on before realising how far I got and how late in the day it already was.
This was certainly the day out I needed around Bali, away from the main touristy areas, driving through small villages and past great views, just enjoying it.
Towards the evening the clouds moved in and I even got a bit wet on my way back but it was all worth it for a great day out just me and the bike enjoying the views and great scenery here.
Sure, I have seen similar scenery in other countries around Asia but a nice view remains a nice view no matter if you've seen something similar in another country.
