Iririki Vanuatu: A Non-Humblebrag
Have you heard of the humblebrag? If you are my aunt/uncle/parent (pretty sure it’s just you guys reading this anyway), I’m going to guess not. So the lovely UrbanDictionary will come to the rescue:
In an effort not to be an asshole, I am going to do everything in my power to just be overt about my bragging.
Remember that time I mentioned I’m going to Vanuatu for my first Christmas without my family? Well, the English Muffin managed to use his powers of negotiation (he’s very smooth, how do you think he snagged me?) to get us a ridiculous Deluxe Ocean Front room at Iririki Resort, a hotel that takes up an entire private island off the coast of Port Vila. I’m sorry, ARE YOU JOKING?
Just to make sure I’m being as overt as possible about what a brag this is, here are some photos:
I knew spending the holidays without my immediate family for the first time was going to be a difficult one, but looking at these pictures, I have a feeling I’m going to be juuuuuust fine. Maybe there will be a twinge or two on Christmas morning when I don’t wake up with my siblings and spend the morning mainlining coffee and opening gifts, but a cocktail by the pool and a phone call should cure me.
I will, of course, make sure I duly report back once I’ve stayed at the resort to let you know what is amazing about Vanuatu and what may not be so awesome. Until then, enjoy these photos!
