It has been a crazy, busy year and I cannot believe it is almost September. The month of September is a special month for us ... we are going to be married. We won't be having a big ceremony with lots of guests, instead we will be having a BIG holiday with a little wedding thrown in.
In approximately four and a half weeks we will be boarding a plane to Rome where we will spend five days checking out the sights and having some marriage paperwork made legal. We then fly to Sicily for seven nights. M's parents were born in Sicily, so it is a special place to spend some time looking around as he has never been there before. After Sicily we fly to Naples and drive to Praiano, a little town on the Amalfi Coast, approximately fifteen minutes from Positano. While we are staying in Praiano for seven nights we are going to get married!! On the day we will visit the little town hall to attend a civil ceremony, witnessed by two close friends who just happen to be travelling through the area at the same time. After the ceremony we will be heading to Il Pino for dinner.
It will be very simple. No flowers, no cake, no white gown, no confetti. Just us, two close friends and dinner in the most amazing place in the world, right here:
Two days later we head to Venice for three days, our last three days in Italy. We then hire a car to drive to Paris, stopping in Germany for a night or two while we stay with one of my closest friends who now lives there. We have five days in Paris then fly to Dubai for two nights to catch our breath before we fly back to Brisbane as an old married couple.
