Early this year, I was blessed with a four-day escape to the warm, sunny, and breathtakingly beautiful island of Langkawi in Malaysia with one of my favourite people in the world, Steve.
We relaxed by the pool, hung out at the pool bar, and swam in the infinity pool … which pretty much sums up most of what we did the entire trip! Westin, you have the most incredible facilities we were content just never leaving (ever)!
Presenting: Snippets of our travel adventures in Langkawi (when we weren’t by the pool going ‘Wow!!! Is this real?’ ;)
Being adventurers at heart, we also went exploring the island on a bright orange scooter, indulged in AMAZING food (Malaysian food is too amazing), enjoyed luxurious massages, and strolled along the streets of Langkawi’s night market (where I was determined to introduce Steve to durian, but alas it wasn’t in season … much to his delight).
We also set the intention of having a completely present, rejuvenating, and deeply nourishing time in Langkawi. I’m big on intentions – and this was no different! To me, creating intentions are similar to making reference points to check-in with after. I loved checking amidst the trip going ‘Wow, the Universe really does over-deliver – generously!’
You know the feeling of awe, immense appreciation and overwhelming love that floods over you when you realize just how amazing something in your life is? One that you’ve (possibly taken for-granted)?
I had that exact feeling when I re-visited Langkawi this year.
While I’ve been to Langkawi before, I haven’t been there with the set of eyes – and perspective - that I have today. Revisiting the places I’ve been many years ago, I was humbly in awe that there were so many pieces I haven’t really truly seen and appreciated before, so many things I’ve yet to experience in this beautiful island.
This was such a rejuvenating, nourishing, and soulful trip … To say I’m super psyched to be back in Malaysia AND be venturing my way to Phuket in two months is an understatement! (Especially stoked to be escaping the winter and working from a beach! #workfromanywhere ;)
Have you been to Phuket?
What places to be + things not to be missed would you highly recommended?
I’d love to hear from you!
