Somewhere high in the mountains of Ubud, I lost and found myself

As I sat on my verandah surrounded by lush jungle, I listened to the sounds of nature, and I felt re-born.

I know as perfect as my pictures may be, nothing will ever truly capture the perfection of this place, so as I write I try to lock everything inside, every sound, every smell, every moment.

It is a beautiful feeling to get lost in a moment, to surrender to your surroundings and be really present.

Sometimes you need to step away from your comfort zone, your daily routine, get a little lost in order to find yourself again.

In my five days in Ubud, Bali I rediscovered myself several times over, whether it was time away with my husband, the several $10 relaxing massages we had or the sheer magic of the place I will never know.

All I know for sure is that taking time out to work out what it is you really want for yourself is and should be an essential part of all our lives.

About Lou Schwarz

I am a traveller at heart.I dream about travel- of exploring the world and meeting new people. When I am not dreaming or travelling; I work in communications and media and I also teach body balance group fitness classes.
