Since then, thousands of people have come seeking something of their own in Ubud; this town on the tiny Indonesian island of Bali has lured painters and dancers, filmmakers and craftsmen, shamans and preachers.

A true cradle of inspiration, Ubud allows its visitors to immerse themselves deep within its commonly perceived zeitgeist; inspiring, creative, and serene.
Wanderlust for me is year-round, but there is something about the approaching summer that encourages many to finalize their travel plans and take off for a week.

So, what does one do to prepare to hit the pavement? Here are a few necessities to make the trip go smoothly.
