The Jungle Book
It was only a few months ago I went to watch the Jungle Book with my son at the cinema, which led to a light bulb moment to abandon another Italian summer and book a trip to the jungle! The idea of monkey forests, rice fields, leafy tropical landscapes and yummy Indonesian food set me on a frenzy to get us vaccinated and prepare a wardrobe of appropriate tie-dye attire! I booked an idyllic little cottage in a resort overlooking some beautiful rice fields in Ubud. Inspiration in abundance!
I couldn’t wait to try Batik classes, massages, jungle treks and fresh coconut water! We were booked to go a couple of weeks after the jungle book moment and were filled with excitement, although a little uncertain about what to expect. This was definitely an adventure worth waiting to share with my son. As a little girl I had always dreamed of the jungle and finally at 40 I was heading into the unknown with “the bear necessities”…. (Excuse the pun).
