Selfmarriage – Taking a honeymoon before the wedding

The next step in my selfmarriage adventure is writing my weddingvows. In the Netherlands it’s still cold and wet at this time of the year, so when I received an email with cheap flights to Ibiza I didn’t have to think long. I asked a friend who knows Ibiza well, where to go to and she adviced me a little quiet place in the north, Portinatx and a rental car to go around the island. All restaurants but one are closed because the season hasn’t started yet. So I have coffee and lunch in the same place every day, that is filled with workers who are preparing homes, restaurants and constructions to be ready when the tourists come. I have my table outside on the terras overlooking the bay.

The weather is just perfect. Sunny and around 20 degrees celcius. I take a walk in the mornings, have coffee, sit on the beach, have lunch and take the car in the afternoon/evening to discover other places. All beaches have this picture perfect deep blue colour and I truly feel I’m on a honeymoon.

On the first day I walked to a lighthouse and got some inspiration while I was resting there.

“I do my job, shining my light consistently and quietly, to be seen only for others who are near and looking for guidance to navigate their ship through life. I don’t make too much noise. But still, I’m a beakon of light and hope for those who need it. For others I’m a nice looking tall standing figure. A bit unapproachable at first sight. But it’s nice to sit beside me, to rest and perhaps take a picture while listening to the sounds of the wind and the ocean far below.”

The second day while I was driving my rental fiat500 I visited a place called Sant Miguel, known for a little white church. Next to the church there was a little atelier/ jeweleryshop. Since I’m still looking for a ring, I walked in and met with the designer Natasha Collis. One ring immediately shouted my name and when I tried it on, it looked just like it belonged there. I tried other rings before, also in the Netherlands, but this one felt like the one. So Yey! I found my ring…or did it find me?

Things fall into place like a puzzle and I love it.

Lots of love
