I love it when a plan comes together...
Our lonely planet arrived tonight. It's been 5 odd years since we last sat before the crisp pages of a new lonely planet and plotted. Pascal and I, like all nomads, are fond of maps and maps attached to books attached to voyages and dreams... this one in particular was attached to the setting sun and a bottle of wine. How to make a pair of happy nomads come out of retirement. And all in the name of love!!!
We sat, summising, looking at the map and talking about possible routes. Unlike other journeys this one would be punctuated by a full moon's cycle. Unlike other journeys, this one would be shared.
Both of us are extremely excited about introducing our children to the joys of the road.
But wait! Before we get excited about the road and its many bends we forget the real reason for the journey: to celebrate love!
Folks, we've booked a place to dance, share and celebrate love: Cilik's Beach Garden in Air Sanih. We arrive on the 1st July, celebrate our love on the 2nd July. We'll stay another day (the 3rd) before leaving.
If you're joining us, we recommend you book a room or bungalow at this lovely, nearby hotel. If you'd like to share a room or bungalow, email us and we'll set it up for you. We can arrange for transport from your hotel to our garden for you on the 2nd.
As for the rest of the holiday, we'll be travelling round the island doecil, or in the sunwise direction... planning stops at Balian, Pemuteran, Lovina, Air Sanih and the Gili islands...
And you, my friends, we have a project for you. Because our ceremony won't be a traditional marriage we'd like you to bless our union. Instead of troubling you to write something original, we'd like you to recall your favourite quote about love- be it a poem, a line from a movie or lyrics from your best anthem- remember it and bring it to the ceremony.
