On June 16, we became proper beach bums for the day on the little tropical island of Gili Trawangan to celebrate R's birthday. We'll tell you more about Gili T again, but our day looked a little like this:

Candles and flowers at the bungalow:

A snorkelling day at the beach:

Where we supped on coconut juice:

Before enjoying sunset cocktails:

And finally, a rather lovely dinner on the beach:

One year ago, we were celebrating R's birthday with a BBQ and friends on the balcony of our Mannheim apartment, with our travel plans still not finalized. It was mid-July before we knew that we would be leaving our jobs and apartment. It's crazy what can happen in a year. And on that note, who knows where we'll be celebrating next year?
