Readers Eye


A slice of paradise is shared with us for this weeks Readers Eye!  Amy from tripontheside.com has shared with us a hidden gem in the heart of Bali.

“I was heading out on a cycle tour of Ubud in Bali one morning, and the first stop was breakfast at a restaurant overlooking stunning Lake Batur. It had been raining the night before and I was hoping that the weather would improve for the tour. Luckily it was a beautiful day and I managed to snap this photo of the glistening lake. ”  ~  Amy.
