This Sunday is going to be our first anniversary (and the 12th since we are dating, wow, long time!), and to celebrate it we have prepared a few posts (way more than our usual) during this week explaining how we ended having our honeymoon in Japan :)
We started this blog from the end, and now we are flash forwarding; just like in the movies; please join us in this little temporary game!
Three years ago, which in blogging time is like saying “this is an old fashioned story”, Dani surprised me for our dating anniversary with a quick getaway (2 days, 1 night) to an unknown destination. He even recorded a video for the surprise, which we are not able to share because, well, he sings in it and that will be too much for anyone :)
It was not until we were in the check-in area of the airport that I discovered that our destination was going to be: Venice! The real one, not the one in Las Vegas.
Our hotel was the Bucintoro situated in Castello a less touristy neighborhood, but with the greatest views to the Laguna and 8 minute walk from St. Mark sq. The hotel was decorated like a boat; with mermaids as knobs of the doors (I loved this detail!).
That night Dani had a reservation to have dinner in a restaurant next to Santa Maria della Salute church. It was quite strange, as we usually do not have reservations made beforehand when we are on a trip, but I thought it was part of his romantic getaway. Just after a delicious burrata he went on his knee, and took a box out of his jacket. This seems quite the usual stuff, but we are not the traditional type so it was the most shocking thing for me ever :) The funny part is that he was so nervous that almost makes fall everything off the table, so after all it was more our own style :P hahaha
Of course I said: “what?”, because I have never been the girl dreaming about a wedding :) followed by a “yes!” and immediately after we started talking about how small and intimate and very us (also this is a cliché, but you get me) and very great it would be.
And well, that was it, the next day we visited the city and flew back with the news to Barcelona.
Sure you do have your special moment with your partner in crime as well, if you are not too shy we would looove to hear it!

The ring is a heart ring from catbird, a Brooklyn jewelry store, thin and delicate!

Goofing around with the Bucintoro hotel keyholder, and so happy!
