Summer popsicles

After spending over 2 amazing weeks in Bora Bora for our honeymoon, it's time to get back to reality...
Before I share some highlights of the beautiful French Polynesian island, I wanted to post a simple refreshing popsicle recipe that I made before leaving on holiday:

Lemon, Lime & Lemongrass summer popsicles

4 lemons (freshly squeezed)
4 limes (freshly squeezed)
Maple syrup (to taste)
8-12 Mint leaves
2 stalks of Lemongrass
Add cold water (to taste)

- Combine all the ingredients together and leave them to infuse for a couple of hours in the fridge

- Strain the infusion through a sieve and pour into popsicle molds 

-Freeze for about 3/4 hours

*For extra flavor, add some freshly grated ginger

It's Honeymoon time!!!

We have been waiting for this trip for such a long time, and today it's finally time to start our 20 hour plane ride to the beautiful island of Bora-Bora in French Polynesia :)
When we first started looking at honeymoon destinations we knew that this island was a must. Whilst we were there we also thought about island hopping also stopping by the Cook islands, however we have been traveling so much lately that we decided to stay the full 2 weeks in Bora Bora... no one's complaining ;););)

Here are some of the many things that we are looking forward to do once we get there:

See you in 2 weeks!!

*Bora Bora, French polynesia*

*Snorkeling in the lagoon*

*Visiting a vanilla plantation*

*Jumping into the crystal clear water from our over water villa*

*Drinking and eating everything with coconut!*

*Digging my feet in the soft white sand*

*Seeing traditional Tahitian dances*

*Wear flower crowns*
