Bali, the island of the Gods. We arrived at this beautiful place about 7 weeks ago. The moment you enter this island, you feel there’s something ‘in the air’, it’s a mystic feeling, an energy vibe, however you wanna name it. For sure it feels great to be here. This small Hindu Island in Indonesia is known by its friendly people, rich culture and interesting traditions. When you are in Bali, even if it’s just for a few days, for sure you’ll experience one of the many ceremonies. While walking on the street or riding you motorbike, the changes of getting stuck between a ceremony parade is big. Last week, we were even more lucky and joined the celebrations of the Balinese New Year. Three days full of ceremonies. Starting with Melasti, than an Ogo-Ogo parade and at last a full day of being in silence.
From the moment we left the Netherlands on September the 12th, we were always on the lookout for new opportunities, inspiration, and products for Ubuntu-Wear. Besides the freedom new adventures and new experiences, producing new products for Ubuntu-Wear was one of the main reasons we left home and choose this life.
Hoi An is a town that is packed with picturesque historical homes, pagodas and street-side cafes. Perfect to spend time by the river, watch the sunset, stroll through the old town, and drink some inexpensive beers. It’s a perfect place for shopping custom tailored outfits and craftsmanship items. But even if you don’t want to shop, Hoi An can be a relaxing destination too. After all, a day at the beach is only a 15-minute bicycle-ride out of town.

Ay yaj yai, what a city this is! It’s the thousands of motorbikes, the pressing heat, the smells of the street food, the vendors that want to sell you anything of everything, the taxi drivers that ignore the red sign. Constant concentration is needed while walking the streets of Ho Chi Minh City.
