This is not an ad! We are not getting paid, instead we spent money... But it was worth it!

Bambu Indah is a jungle boutique hotel in Baung, Ubud - Bali. It's has small houses that are carefully curated by designers and long term residents of Bali, John Hardy. In 2005, eleven antique Javanese bridal homes were brought to Bali, restored, and decorated with the finest details.

It's Balinese name Pura Taman Ayun literally means ‘Garden Temple in the Water’. Pura Taman Ayun was built as a series of garden terraces with courtyards on different levels.

Randomly

"True love is not a strong, fiery, impetuous passion. It is, on the contrary, an element calm and deep. It looks beyond mere externals, and is attracted by qualities alone. It is wise and discriminating, and its devotion is real and abiding." ~Ellen G. White

I just love this quotes, this time it is related to my "Randomly" post!

So, to those that have seen my randomly post before, would know that it is about many things that I heard, places I went, people I've met—that touched my life. I am striving to stay awake to be in the moment, soak on the smell, mentally captured what I saw and listens to the sound—snap I went to captured these moments as they come.

Fisherman's Bastion, Budapest


Fisherman's Bastion (The Hal√°szb√°stya) is a terrace in neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque style situated on the Buda bank of the Danube, on the Castle hill in Budapest, around Matthias Church. It was designed and built between 1895 and 1902 on the plans of Frigyes Schulek. Construction of the bastion destabilized the foundations of the neighboring 13th century Dominican Church which had to be pulled down. Between 1947–48, the son of Frigyes Schulek, J√°nos Schulek, conducted the other restoration project after its near destruction during World War II.

Its seven towers represent the seven Magyar tribes that settled in the Carpathian Basin in 895. From the towers and the terrace a panoramic view exists of Danube, Margaret Island, Pest to the east and the Gellért Hill.

The Buda side castle wall was protected by the fishermen's guild and this is the reason why it was called fishermen's Bastion. Other people say, it got the name from the part of the city, which lies beneath the tower. The guild of fishermen was responsible for defending this stretch of the city walls in the Middle Ages. It is a viewing terrace, with many stairs and walking paths.

A bronze statue of Stephen I of Hungary mounted on a horse, erected in 1906, can be seen between the Bastion and the Matthias Church. The pedestal was made by Alajos Stróbl, based on the plans of Frigyes Schulek, in Neo-Romanesque style, with episodes illustrating the King's life.

Castle Hill, Budapest



Castle Hill is a kilometre-long limestone plateau towering 170m above the Danube. It contains some of Budapest’s most important medieval monuments and museums,

Liberty Bridge, Budapest


The Liberty Bridge is 333.6 m in length and 20.1 m in width. The top of the four masts are decorated with large bronze statues of the Turul, a falcon-like bird, prominent in ancient Hungarian mythology.


St. Stephen's Basilica, Budapest



Today our route is basically within the Andrassy Avenue, we took the tram and start to walk towards St. Stephen's Basilica. It is a Roman Catholic basilica in Budapest. The name is to honor Stephen, the first King of Hungary (975–1038). 

It is told that Stephen's right hand is housed in the reliquary, it is said that his right hand is "incorruptible". St. Stephen was the sixth largest church building in Hungary before 1920 and now it is the third largest church building in present-day Hungary.
