Greetings from Bintan, a small island near Singapore! Anthony and I are here with Dave (Anthony’s best man from our wedding) — and Leah is still trekking along with us, too.The story behind how and why we are here is a bit long — but we are very lucky and loving every second of it. Hanging out at the Banyan Tree Resort is pretty amazing.
We’ve spent quite a bit of time enjoying the view from our suite’s private pool…And when we’re not outside, we don’t mind hanging out in our ritzy rooms, either.Plenty of spots to lounge around our suite as well as throughout the resort. It’s impossible not to relax here!On Friday, we arrived just in time for an in-suite barbecue!The hotel staff here is above and beyond friendly, and presented us with lots of meats and fish for grilling. Leah and I made sure the salads were in order… (ps — how cool is the cutlery here?! I love the swirly spoons!)While the guys grilled everything else to perfection.On Saturday, Leah and I made it out for an intense run around town.Noon on the equator is beautiful, but also extremely hot. I felt like I was jogging in a toaster oven.Manicures and massages made everything better!More time in the pool…And watching the sunset.Have a great weekend!
