It’s been a while since I last talked to a childhood friend of mine and I sure was glad when she buzzed me on instant messenger last night. She is now based in the UK and has been serving as a nurse for about a decade. We surely had a lot of catching up to do. And I learned about one of the major events that took place in her life recently, that is tying the knot with her long-time boyfriend. The wedding took place in a very nice church and it was attended by their family and very close friends. It was an intimate event and surely was memorable for the couple. She showed me their wedding photos and her gown was truly fabulous! She was indeed the most beautiful woman on her big day.
Another set of photos that she shared with me were those taken during their honeymoon. To get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city and to enjoy their first weeks as a couple, they visited Spain and stayed in a very nice villa in Puerto Pollensa. With the help of Owners Direct, an online booking website for great villas and cottages, they found a cozy place where they stayed for two weeks. A colleague of hers who was able to find good Majorca villas some years back was the one who recommended Owners Direct to her. My friends shared how nice and friendly the owners of the villa were and they look forward to staying there in their future trips.
The old fashioned air that surrounds Puerto Pollensa is what seems to be attracting tourist from all over the world. The small natural beaches are perfect for taking dips which were surely enjoyed by my friend and her husband. They also had fun visiting shops, bars and fish restaurants.
It surely was a very enjoyable and memorable start for them as a couple and like all their friends, I wish that their marriage will be blessed and last a lifetime.
