Eating vegan in Ubud, Bali

Dear readers, My time in Bali was predominantly spent in Ubud, where my volunteer accommodation was located. I did travel at the weekends but the restaurants I'm going to mention are all in Ubud, Bali.

I feel it was able to give me a true sense of what Bali life is really like for the Balinese people! Vespa- Ubud, Bali  Admittedly I ate a LOT of my meals here considering it was just a few steps from [...]

I'm delighted to [...]

It's safe to say Bali [...]
