Honeymoon days 16-17

We spend 2 relaxing nights at Hotel Wailea. Our final night we had the most amazing dinner. This was going to be the last real night of our honeymoon as we have to start our journey home tomorrow. We had an amazing time doing nothing on Maui. Such a great way to relax after the huge, no time for stopping road trip across Canada. … Read More Honeymoon days 16-17

Drowning

Drowning. Many people say they would like a peaceful death. So they think that drowning would be the best way to go. I heard TW’s mum say it once and he said he doubted that was any kind of peaceful. I suggested that the way my Great Grandma passed, at night in her sleep, next to her husband, from liver failure, was probably more … Read More Drowning

Honeymoon days 13-15 Hotel Wailea Maui

MAUI!! Hotel Wailea. Finally! We are back. So excited. Our first trip to Maui, back in 2009, we stayed at Hotel Wailea and loved it so for our honeymoon we knew we had to go back. When we first stayed we thought the hotel was more than lovely. There this intangible peace and tranquility about the place. Oh, and those rooms, we adored the rooms. Large, … Read More Honeymoon days 13-15 Hotel Wailea Maui

First trip to Thailand, Bangkok day 3

Our third day in Bangkok. This would really not be counted as a holiday. It isn’t supposed to be a holiday. I know that but I thought just the day times would be busy. Yesterday was full on busy until late into the night and today was no different. The good thing is that we are both busy otherwise it could be boring for … Read More First trip to Thailand, Bangkok day 3

Amangiri and Me – MT (pt 3 – the finalé)

We learned a lot about me in part 1 and 2 but not a huge amount about Amangiri. Why was that important? I always read reviews and then discard them because I don’t know what kind of person they are. Do they hate life and everything good that has ever happened to them? Are they the kind of people who insist on seeing only … Read More Amangiri and Me – MT (pt 3 – the finalé)

Amangiri and Me – MT (pt 2)

In part 1 we established the fact that:1. Everyone should go to Amangiri 2. I didn’t have many childhood holidays 3. I don’t have a nostalgic association of what a holiday should be4. My dad drove trucks and has a plane I did work on a summer camp – Camp Birch Hill in New Durham, New Hampshire when I was 19. That experience has … Read More Amangiri and Me – MT (pt 2)

Amangiri and Me – MT (pt 1)

Oh, Amangiri, how I miss thee. I have been told many times that I should write my stories down, not just about travel. The things I say in general but I do talk to people about travel a lot. Mine, theirs, a relative’s, someone they used to know. It doesn’t matter who went on the trip, travel is a good topic. Though, I never … Read More Amangiri and Me – MT (pt 1)

Honeymoon days 11 to 13

Waking up in Quebec was a great feeling. We could take our time with everything today. Our road trip is now basically over and it has been the first time since we left Vancouver that we really could just relax. We didn’t want to see much more than the old town itself and we saw almost all of it last night while deciding where … Read More Honeymoon days 11 to 13

Honeymoon days 9.5 – 11

I am excited to talk about Bora Bora, TW has some photos and video he really wants to share and I think there is a lot of expectation but not a whole lot of people know someone who has been so there isn’t much first-hand information on it. Well we, don’t always go to tropical destinations. In fact, we have a lot of different … Read More Honeymoon days 9.5 – 11

Honeymoon day 8-9.5

I have to say, given this has taken over 6 months, I have forgotten a lot of the details of our trip. I know a lot of people who look forward to their honeymoon – more than they look forward to their wedding. In some cases I am sure their honeymoon was the highlight of the two events. For us, I am not sure … Read More Honeymoon day 8-9.5
