I wanted to camp at Big Sur campgrounds but ended up booking for Ventana campgrounds. Pretty clean and organized. However would of been nice if their showers were free. The down part was to pay for showers compared to Big Sur campgrounds where showers were included part of he booking

Big Sur was unbelievable! I’ve come a long way from Bradford Beach to see the coast out here in all of its glory! Here’s an iPhone shot while I load all my photos on my computer over the next few hours!
I was determined to get to the very end and then back and down to the beach. This is Kelingking Beach in Nusa Penida Island. If you check the second photo you'll see how far down the beach is. Definitely not for the faint-hearted. I got to that point and gave up knowing very well I wouldn't make it back up on time. I only had a few hours to explore before catching the last boat back to Bali.
The path down is very steep and narrow with nothing to hold onto except for some weak bamboo posts. The climb wasn't that easy considering the heat and high humidity but I managed to scramble my way up before the storm.
Sometimes it's good to take time out by yourself. Time to relax, meditate and contemplate. It's always good when you do it out in nature then you can base your thinking on your observation. It spurs imagination and helps you appreciate life and your existence. The result is always a change on how you perceive yourself and your relationship with the environment in which you live in.
Those who have been to Bali will attest the beauty of this island. From the beaches, the waterfalls, the volcanoes, the rice fields, the art and culture, Bali will surely fascinate you. What impressed me the most about Bali is the rice cultivation. Despite the increase in Tourism and the Population growth, Bali has maintained it's rice cultivation practices. Everywhere you go in the island there's rice. Rice is a staple food in Indonesia and Indonesia is the third largest rice producer in the World behind China and India.
Contributing significantly to rice farming in Bali is the Subak system of irrigation. It is a 1000 year old system that has been recognized by UNESCO @unesco as the World Heritage Cultural Landscape of Bali. The system consists of rice terraces and their water temples covering up to 20000 hectares. The temples are the focus of a cooperative water management system of canals and weirs (the Subak). The Subak itself is based on the Tri Hita Karana philosophy which explains the relationship between humans and nature.
It is always a great feeling once you get to the mountain top. It is not just about the awesome view but also the feeling of accomplishment and self achievement. You know very well how hard and difficult the climb was but you pushed yourself. The answer to climbing always lies somewhere between the bottom and the top of the mountain. It requires a great deal of courage, determination and self- motivation.
