Before I begin this tale of love, I must preface that it was both the most extraordinary, as well as the most challenging journey I have ever undertaken. While I experienced unforgettable moments of bliss, I was tested in ways that I never imagined being tested. Of course, all adventures, big or small, leave us changed forever. By the time I reach the end of this story, however, you will see that I am not only a changed person, but that I am a better person and most importantly dreams really do come true.
Unfortunately, at the last minute, the airport in Buenos Aires, Argentina in which my flight was scheduled to land at was switched. Thus, there would not be enough time for my fiancé Lucas to meet me at the new airport. I had been dreaming of our “airport reunion” for seven months and was definitely disappointed that after I walked through customs he would not be there waiting for me. Although, he was now waiting for me at our hotel, Algedon Mansion, with two glasses of champagne.
In all of my travels, I have never seen a hotel room as gorgeous as the one we stayed at in Algodon Mansion.
I have been to hotels with to-die-for views and stayed in rooms that thoroughly impressed me, but this room, well it took Lucas and I’s breath away. It was the size of a small apartment and it just oozed luxury.
Oh, and did I mention that the room came with our own private butler? We were also gifted a bottle of Malbec from Algodon’s vineyard in Mendoza as a wedding present!
I should not have expected anything less than perfection from a mansion in the heart of the glamorous barrio of Recoleta. I truly felt like I was in a fairytale being in the arms of the man I loved in such beautiful surroundings with our wedding now just days away! Before we could get too settled, we had to get ready for the special evening that we had planned. . .
