The Sidemen Road is well-known for its rustic landscape of paddy fields and villages. We came by groups of farmers harvesting and threshing bundles of paddy the traditional way. Here are two ladies threshing in tandem into a makeshift threshing contraption.

It is common in Bali to have paddy fields with different stages of growth. Some are seedlings, others in the middle stages of growth while still others ready for harvesting. This system ensures consistent supply of rice all year round and it is common to have 3 harvests per year.

Hello... I Am Josh

A Travel Writer & Photographer from South East Asia

A little about me

Josh For some, it's shopping therapy. Others, movie therapy. Yet more, reading therapy. For me, it's writing therapy.
Why writing? When I travel, I enjoy first-hand the experience like in shopping therapy. But when I write about my travels, I live vicariously the experience again, as if like a movie sequel (or more like GroundHog Day, except that this is fun!). Yes, writing evokes the memories, the fun and the not-so-fun but all-in-all it gives the satisfaction of reliving the sense of place once more.
With images, it enhances the experience down one's travel memory lane. With this in mind, I hope to share my travel stories in words and images with you. For your escape therapy! More...
