Om Swasti Astu. It means "Peace and greetings from God" in Balinese.
The Kayon Resort. A destination on its own. I sound like a loser but really, I booked this hotel and built the trip around it.
I checked Kayon out of a recommendation and I immediately fell in love with it. I just thought it has that tranquil charm anyone from the concrete jungle will be in awe.
It was supposed to be a solo trip. Read a book, perhaps a trip to the market, but really, the date of all dates was between me and Mother Nature. I booked Kayon in 2016 for a 2017 trip but had to rebook for this year. Then, late last year, I thought, how awesome will it be if Joseph come with me to this exquisite destination? He replied with the usual, “yes, sure why not” with the same enthusiasm as how one will answer the question, “do you want to have broccoli with your steak?”
Joseph gets excited with adventure trips, scuba diving, skiing, trekking, desert safari but not a photo of a serene looking hotel that offers quiet time for reflection. It’s not his thing but he will indulge me, coz he wuv me.
He knows, I MUST SEE THE WORLD. My obsession with traveling is as much as how strongly I feel towards munching KFC every other week if not every week. (Puh-leese, do not start me with the diet and health talk. You do you, I do me). Since I got bitten by the travel bug in 2014, I have not been able to not think of traveling.
My husband, is more than happy for me to see the world, with or without him. If he can, he tags along to keep me safe and happy. Our children love to travel too but they have school and one is much too young to be traveling to un-surveyed places. We have a once a year family travel, somewhere family-friendly or foodie-friendly
We used to flip through the pages of glossy magazines or colourful webpages, drool and gawk at gorgeous places we only dreamed of seeing. We used to daydream over the idea of food we might never get to taste. Wondered how each destination feels.
