Protests in Jakarta

9th May We have watched some diplomat enter and leave our hotel. I have not made mention of it because I don’t know why the security detail was so large and I didn’t want to jeopardise their safety. Not that there are huge amounts of people reading my blog and those that do aren’t the dangerous type. I just didn’t want to be the … Read More Protests in Jakarta

SuperTree by Indochine

Last night we went to dinner at Gardens by the Bay to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. To make it special I had booked SuperTree by Indochine. The restaurant announced it was closing as Gardens by the Bay now has plans to turn the SuperTree into an observation deck. What I didn’t realise when I booked was just how much taller than everything else … Read More SuperTree by Indochine

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 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

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
