After a particularly hellish week involving all nighters, house-painting, my other half ending up in hospital for five days, and moving house (phew I cannot even believe all this happened in one week!), Bali welcomed us with the peace and time out we so desperately needed. More or less collapsing on arrival, after a full night’s sleep we dove into the spiritualism, hedonism, and rejuvenation that this island so wonderfully offers. Returning home only made bearable by the launch of Sage and Clare and that we’ll be returning next year to get hitched! x
I think most people would agree that one of the most exciting things about planning a wedding is then turning your attention to the honeymoon! After literally scanning the world map for potential destinations, we’ve decided upon the Greek islands – a place that I’ve been hoping to get to since about the age of 5!
Looking for a mixture of activity and total relaxation, Onar seems to fit the bill for the relaxation component. Located on the island of Andros, in secluded and hard-to-get-to Achla beach, this is the place that will begin our Cyclades island-hopping adventure. Rustic, peaceful, and in the middle of nowhere – we could not wish for anything more…
Now, where should we go from here?
At the risk of sounding saccharinely optimistic, isn’t it amazing what you notice when you’re forced to slow down (read: cannot walk)? The light, the beauty of colour, and those small miracles of nature. Starting to limp along now, but with a refreshed view of my surroundings.
