Vacation Squared


So why did I name our title "Vacation Squared"? Clark and I thought the name suited well because Singapore is a vacation to us and so was going to Indonesia! Don't you like going on a vacation while on vacation!?
Clark and I loved going to Bintan Lagoon Resort in this past weekend. Its great working for a company that owns the place! We arrived on Friday and ate some grub...a huge burger I might add then we headed to our deluxe room and went to sleep (we had a long day along with an hour ferry ride).
Saturday morning we got up at 7:45am...yeah our cell phone clocks were wrong (sorry Clark for waking you up so early). We headed to breakfast and then to the beach where it was gorgeous! I wanted to snorkel since it was really cheap so we signed up and went out for an 1 1/2 hours! We saw so many fish that would even eat out of your hand. I saw one jelly fish (thank goodness) and a eel looking thing that pops it head out of the coral to eat fish. The ride back on the boat was so fun because the sites were great.


Mark, the Club Manager, let us take a golf cart out to ride around on the Jack Nicholas course! The course was sooo beautiful and the ocean in the background made it just breathtaking.




Later that night we were eating at the buffet and I decided I would be daring and eat a baby octopus...yeah it kinda tasted like rubber. Clark tried the vanilla ice cream...wait I mean pineapple ice cream...wait I mean CORN ice cream! GROSS! Haha Clark was like what is this...!!! I enjoyed the tasty strawberry and chocolate deserts instead.


Sunday morning we ate breakfast and headed to Pasar Oleh Oleh, which was a few miles from the resort. It was a very touristy place but we didn't mind. We walked around and looked at all the wooden sculptures and fake prada, gucci, and dooney and burke. Clark bought 2 nice Polo shorts for a total of $7...you can be the judge if they are real Polo's. After Oleh Oleh we headed back to the beach and pool to soak up some rays.



The end of our vacation had come...back to the ferry we went. How was it that the only people who blew chunks on the boat just happened to be the people that Clark and I were sitting next to?

All in all it was a great vacation getaway, or as I call it, a great late anniversary present! I can't wait to go back again!
