En-route to a cycling trip an hour out of Ubud we stopped for breakfast at an open-air restaurant with amazing views of … nothing.
It had been damp and foggy all morning, and a blanket of grey stretched as far as the eye could see. Our guide was adamant that breath-taking views lay out there somewhere, but as the coffee and pancakes came out we had only his word to go on.
Half an hour later, all was different. The last tendrils of fog were disappearing as the rain clouds gave way to bright sunshine, and the rice terraces below suddenly came into view.
Maybe that guide was right after all…
