7 years tomorrow

Can you guess where we are here? The clue is in the painting!


Tomorrow is my/our 7th year anniversary which sounds so so long! We did have plans to celebrate but my brother is arriving tomorrow from the UK so will see how that goes now!

7 facts of interest about 'US'

♥ I call him Duck and he calls me Bear, he loves bread, has big 'wings' and likes water a lot so it is quite appropriate. I'm not really sure why I'm a bear, I often ask if it is because I care.
♥ We pretty much lived together after a few months (although it wasn't intentional) and have barely been apart since.
♥ Together we have moved 6 times - Northampton, 3 difference places in London and 2 places in Hong Kong although the latter 2 were our first non flat shares! Felt/feels very grown up.
♥ We love traveling big time! Together we have gone to 15 18 countries and 23 26 cities and some of them more than once! Our first trip was to Paris.
♥ For our 1st xmas together he got me an alarm clock and a mini water dispenser. He wrapped the alarm clock in a bigger box so I couldn't guess what it was which made me think it was a HUGE gift. I cried with disappointment!
♥ My dad was not on board with our relationship at all. He took over 2 years to accept it and now he won't shut up and chatters away to him like I'm not even there. NOW my family often make out that I'm the lucky one to have him! family huh?
♥ When we first got together, I didn't think it would become serious, I even said to my friend that I predict we'd finish before August (we were going to Reading Festival together aha!)

It was hard to choose 7, so many more things I want to share but maybe next year...

(edit - somehow I managed to forget about 3 countries, one of which we went to 3 times, luckily the duck has a good memory!)

On the location...I'm seeing tuk tuks? in the painting, so I'm guessing Thailand or Vietnam?
