Shilpa and Roy

We are planning an amazing three week honeymoon in Bali and Lombok - two islands in Indonesia. Having you come to Big Sur for our wedding is really all we want. However, If you would like to give us a gift, a small contribution to our honeymoon would be wonderful. We have both wandered all over the world, but to date neither of us has been fortunate enough to visit Indonesia. To rectify this terrible state of affairs, we'll be spending nearly three weeks wandering around, taking in the sights, sounds and wonders of Bali and Lombok. In the 1930s the anthropologist Margaret Mead helped to create a western image of Bali as "an enchanted land of aesthetes at peace with themselves and nature". She the used her Balian research to champion broadened sexual morals within a context of traditional western religious life. Mystical, hedonistic, rugged yet polished, Bali is known for stunning sunsets, sculpted rice terraces, and a Hindu temple on almost every corner. To date one of us (Roy) hasn't taken to, or adopted, a god. My hope (Shilpa) is that the Hindu influences rub off on Roy and he finds a new path towards happiness and spiritual fulfillment. And even if that strategy fails at the very least the steamy Indonesian island also has great diving and a rollicking night life. Lombok is a lesser known and lesser developed island only about 15 miles from Bali. Lombok is known for its striking natural beauty and also famed for its wondrous wildlife and deadly flora and fauna. Even better the teeny-tiny associated Gili islands offer us the chance to snorkel in crystal clear waters, staring in shock and awe at the vivid sealife (much like we did when watching Finding Nemo).

What's a honeymoon registry?

Wanderable is a new and unique honeymoon registry that allows wedding guests to gift meaningful and memorable experiences to a newlywed couple.

Similar to a traditional registry where the couple registers for gifts, couples will create a Wanderable registry website where guests can choose a thoughtful experience to give based on their unique relationship with the couple.

Why Wanderable?

Couples who choose Wanderable want a beautiful experience to help begin their journey together.

A marriage is about the experience of life and the journey you are just beginning together. Wanderable believes that this is at the core of marriage. And the only way to help a couple celebrate this is to provide a meaningful wedding gift of one of the first experiences of this journey together.

Wanderable helps couples get started on their journey by providing a unique way for guests to give more than a thing, but a gift of a new life experience the couple can share.

We believe that experiences can be made into memorable gifts, that feel as real as receiving any other gift you can unwrap.
