My 'Mega Moment'

 Do you have one of those moments in life that was just mega? A mega moment in time. I am pleased to say i have a few. I've travelled to some beautiful places, i've married my best friend and I have the most amazing son who is like all kinds of crazy wonderful. All those to me are mega moments. But if i were to pick one particular mega moment out i know the one that stands out as just mind blowingly perfect.
MegaBus have announced a wonderful competition, a gallery full of people sharing their 'Mega Moments'.
Mine has to be July 2009, Lake Garda, Italy with my Fiance at the time (who became hubby not too long after) .
This place just absolutely stole my heart. I have been to many wonderful places.
But this holiday was a mega moment.
Salvatore and I hadn't had many holidays, only a quick trip to Spain to see my parents at the time and that was it. Very unrelaxing and just a quick trip there and then back.
We ran a business and it was so hard getting time away, that we just ended up not going on holidays.
But then, just once we did.
This holiday was the biggest blessing ever. We lay in hammocks sipping cold drinks till the sun went down with views across the lake. It was bliss.
We ate pasta and gelato until we fell asleep. We wandered the cobbled streets of Limone and Sirimione. We drove the hair pin bends and took in every drop of this beautiful place.
This is my little slice of heaven.
My Mega Moment.

Opening your balcony doors out on to this view:
It really doesn't get any better.
I really really hope we will return one day. Maybe for our wedding anniversary. Or maybe just for fun!

  1. It looks absolutely beautiful Rachel! Lake Garda has been on my list forever.

  2. I should go there one day. My good friend has been there many time...I hear only nice things abou this place.

  3. Awww, lake garda! I was there in 2010 and would love to return as well. Of course it is just such a beautiful place. I didn't want to leave. I even got to stay an extra week because of an Icelandic volcano erupting and grounding all flights. But that was five years ago now, and I haven't been on a vacation since.
