Yes indeed, you guessed it we have been planning a trip. Took a while to plan this one – rather remote location we have not been to before. Super excited and now officially counting the days down!
So why a mystery?
Why not! You know we love surprises – did you notice the name of our blog 😉
No major hints… we when we get there we will blog and share photos for sure.
Prep is underway – ‘editing down‘ is our theme. If you have followed our previous trips we strive for minimalism and take stuff we will actually wear rather than excess.
We are truly doing light this time. 2.5 weeks out of small carry on bag. Will see if we can survive it. Also too many bags will be a burden as we move between destination(s).
2. Staying fashionable
We did not say we would live in tees and shorts, in fact we are packing none of that. This will be on trend.. lots of fun evenings call for great dresses (Alice + Olivia, Dolce Vita, Zimmerman, DVF… and still debating the Herve Leger and Rochas – take or leave, take or leave…).
3. Staying healthy
Packing sunscreen, aloe, and coconut oil is a must! Not sure how I will deal with withdrawal from my Vitamix smoothie habit — hope they will have some equivalent so I can get my fix. I was a fruit lover but now I am officially a fruit addict. We hope the food will be to our liking and we will get to discover new tastes along the way!
You know we will dive right into the culture… we love people and learning their way of life. So we have been even learning the language 😉 at least a few words so we can get by. So exciting to think about connecting with new people, making friends, get off the beaten path when possible. Yes, we will be shopping – not excessively but let’s get real it will happen – so we will #ownit #yolo !!
Mother nature will be a strong theme… this will be a part meditative trip. We both need to detox and re- energize re-calibrate our mind/body. So we picked a setting that will help provide the ambiance for this healing to take place.
We can hardly wait…
Can you guess where we are going?
Things are heating up – final checklists being checked. Techie gadgets will be left behind besides the phone. We are going ‘off the grid‘. Hoping we will have some coverage so we can blog every few days 🙂 Books you say? we love books but on this trip we probably won’t want to look down from the scenery and waste a perfectly good view!
