With life moving a rapid pace you start to realize there is so much of the world you might never get to see. I guess that's one of the reasons we choice our destination: Bali.
Bali is so picturesque that you could be fooled into thinking it was a painted backdrop: rice paddies trip down hillsides like giant steps, volcanoes soar through the clouds, the forests are lush and tropical, and the beaches are lapped by the warm waters of the Indian Ocean.

Recent tragic events have scared away many of those who simply saw Bali as a place for cheap beer. While the Bintang is still tasty and plentiful, Bali's temples, ceremonies, beaches, mountains and passion for life are undiminished and more easily enjoyed than ever.

I think the idea of travelling diminishes once you have children. It's harder to justify a 23 hour flight just so you can have an hour massage for 13 USD.

Because we are travelling on Singapore Airlines, they stop in Singapore and we were allowed to add a few days (FOR FREE) there to see another country we've heard so much about.
Singapore has traded in its rough-and-ready opium dens and pearl luggers for towers of concrete and glass, and its steamy rickshaw image for hi-tech wizardry, but you can still recapture the colonial era with a Singapore Sling under the languorous ceiling fans at Raffles Hotel.

At first glance, Singapore appears shockingly modern and anonymous, but this is an undeniably Asian city with Chinese, Malay and Indian traditions from feng shui to ancestor worship creating part of the everyday landscape. It's these contrasts that bring the city to life.

In both locations we will be staying at the Conrad. On our to do list other than shopping (which we be doing A LOT of), shark diving, elephant safari, trapeze flying on Sentosa Island, white water rafting down the Ayung River, snorkeling and lots of spa treatments! Like most honeymoons that are memorable, I think with all the fun and love and excitement we'll have, it will be downright permanently sketched into our noggins!

Where are you going for your honeymoon?
