After our stay in Banyuwangi with the unique tour to Ijen volcano, we took the early train (5:15 am) to Malang to visit the beautiful Bromo-Tengger National Park.
After a slightly bumpy departure from Bali. We took the Ferry from Gilimanuk to Banyuwangi.

Our new apartment in Ubud was a bit outdated but still good enough with a wonderful view over rice fields in the south of Ubud. We booked this Room for four nights.
It is my second time in Ubud, Bali. The Last time was over four years ago and only for four days. I was curious to go back to that beautiful place, to see what changed over time.
