It’s (FINALLY) honeymoon time – and if the title hasn’t given it away Luke & I are off to Bora Bora aka paradise and the home of Moana! And I can’t wait!
It’s been a very long time coming, since Luke & I got married back in January. There’s a few reasons behind that which you can read about in one of my previous blog post – https://lifestylelisa.com/2022/08/22/honeymoon-destination/https://lifestylelisa.com/2022/08/22/honeymoon-destination/
But now the wait is finally over and in a few short hours we will be airborne and making our way to LAX!
So why Bora Bora right? Well why not? Luke & I are a very outside the box couple and so when I know lots of people who have been to certain amazing destinations it kind of puts me off of going there. I like to make my own adventures and try to find places where I don’t know anyone who’s been there (yet) And to be honest Bora Bora is a bucket list destination and one I’m sure I’ll only travel to once so why not do it for our honeymoon!!
The journey is going to be long – like 24 hours long (yawn) I hope the inflight entertainment is good!! And if they have a Christmas movie section then I will be in my element! I have my DS so that I can play animal crossing until my little heart is content, I have a phone full of music, and I’ve also packed snacks (of course!)
It’s a little weird leaving the UK during the most wonderful time of the year, and of course I’m also leaving Hunter for the longest time yet. And yes there has been a few tears on my part, because I’m going to miss him so much. But he is safe and sound and getting showered with love and attention from my mum & dad, my dad who is also house sitting for us (you guys are awesome)
