Except that… after the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami I’m not sure how relaxed I would actually be sitting like a, well, duck, out there in the water. In my perfect world the overwater bungalow would be on a landlocked tropical lake, with warm waters, no sharks, and lots of brightly colored fish. Do you think I am asking too much? I am sure that with Global Warming there is a chance some lakes could end up fitting that criteria. Well, the fish might be glowing from toxic waste, but even so… no tsunamis, right?
I suppose that Disney could probably create a perfect escape like I have in my mind. But travel is messy! It is part of their very purpose, to throw us outside of our comfort zone and strip away our security blanket. I am sure I would enjoy the Disney version of my overwater bungalow very much (especially if it wasn’t crowded with others seeking safe, stress-free fulfillment of their desires.) But unless I someday experience the real deal, tsunami threat included, I’ll never feel like I crossed this particular goal off my bucket list.
The overwater bungalows in the Tripadvisor advisor spotlight (especially the Four Seasons Bora Bora) might just be enough to convince me it is worth the try.
Have you stayed in an overwater bungalow? I’d love to hear about it, and even see pictures. Leave your comment, or if you prefer privacy, send me an email- dwilstedauthor(AT)outlook(dot)com.
