We joined Nikki & Leon and Lou, Mia & Eric for a weekend away. Our friends share our love for Langkawi and we all could use some downtime at the pool after a busy couple of weeks. Eric and I decided to stay at a different resort than our friends, as we were celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary (a weekend early). When we checked into our resort, we were immediately upgraded from Temple Tree to the more private and intimate Bon Ton resort next door. We loved our stay at Bon Ton. We felt pampered in our traditional Malay house on stilts, that was complete with an air conditioner, two person wood bathtub (!!), ceiling shower that drained through the floor, great breakfast, complementary wine tasting, a surprise anniversary cake and french pressed coffee! So good!!

After this trip to Langkawi, I have decided that the connection that I feel to this island is what I thought I would find in Bali.
Who knew that our Bali, would be so close. Peaceful, beautiful and a place for us to connect with each other and with nature. Langkawi, we will be back...probably next month!
