Hope you’d enjoy this post. 🙂
After an early morning trip to Gensan’s fish port, we visited Saranggani Highlands, which afforded us good views overlooking the province of Saranggani. As we had a specific place in Saranggani Highlands all by ourselves, we tried to duplicate our poses during our very first travel as a couple in Hong Kong. We lost one of our memory cards (with loads of Hong Kong travel pictures) on our way home from our Hong Kong-Macau trip by the way.
Coming off from Singapore, we headed directly to our hotel near Borobodur. The trip from the airport to our hotel was more than approximately 1.5 hours, and it was much longer than what we have anticipated (admittedly, we have not done enough research and preparation for this trip because of our wedding preparations). Just as we checked in, the lady from the concierge advised us that we should have headed straight to Prambanan Temple from the airport. We ate packed Indonesian lunch inside the van on the way to this temple and were there on time. Just on time before the heavy downpour while we were visiting the next Yogyakharta landmark near Prambanan!
The picture, however bad the lighting is, is one of my favorite photos as this reminds me a lot of how we tried, for several times, to take a good picture of ourselves with the Twin Towers in the background. Kuala Lumpur was the last city we visited during our Singapore-Yogyakharta-Bali-Genting Highlands-Kuala Lumpur trip in 2010. It was in Kuala Lumpur where we got a “VIP tourist treatment” as a wedding gift from a good friend.
Who would ever forget conquering one’s fear of heights?
We never really thought we’d have a real gondola ride along Venice’s Grand Canal!
Witnessing a beautiful sunrise unfold at the top of the Borobodur Temple was a perfect reward for waking up at 4 AM. For this alone, our side trip to Yogyakharta was really worth it.
Have you ever felt what it is to be in “cloud nine”? I guess being in “cloud nine” is parasailing, overlooking Bali, with the man you’ve just married. By the way, I don’t know if I would be able to do this if I, alone, parasailed.
Seeing the Colosseum and the other ancient Roman structures was a fulfilled dream for both of us! 🙂
I initially wanted dreamed of driving an ATV so we had a trial ride at an ATV-rental company’s training grounds. As I do not know how to bike (yes, unfortunately), I drove slowly during the practice. As I thought that ATV-driving is easy and not-so-fun when you’re driving slowly, I decided to start picking up my speed. Unfortunately, I did not have enough time to put on the brakes slowly as a sharp road bend was coming up. I flew with the ATV. To make the story short, we rode the buggy together (and I was not the driver..haha!).
The skies were overcast on our first and third days in Paris. We were lucky enough that we planned to see the Eiffel Tower on the second day, when the weather was good and the skies were lovely to take beautiful pictures – of course, with the help of our very reliable tripod. 🙂
This was taken outside the clog factory at Zaanse Scanse, the Netherlands. The windmills, the perfect weather, the beautiful landscapes and the crisp air – all these made a perfect day in Europe.
Happy feet, happy fit! 😊
