Memories/funny stories of the day? My bridesmaids and I were running around 20 minutes late, which was fine. But while we were happily on our way to Lindemans, travelling in Mavis, we got pulled over by the police for a random breath test. When I had seen them set up on the side of the road, I thought there was no way they would pull us over but they did. At least we had an excuse for being late…
Where did you go/going for your honeymoon? We started with a road trip through northern NSW, destination being Wollumbin Eco Retreat near Mount Warning. Staying four nights in the “Rainforest Lodge” which is a urt. Absolutely gorgeous, with beautiful scenery, nature, service, food and warm freshly baked bread hanging on a hook at our front door every morning.
After our stay we jetted off to Bali, Indonesia and stayed at the Akmani Legian for 10 days. Once again, we had the time of our lives. Seafood platter and serenaded at Jimbarran Bay. Swimming at Padang Padang. Massages, special drinks, roof top bar and pool. Once again excellent service and food. A holiday we’ll never forget.
