I don’t know if you can recall one of those luminous moments in your life when it just seemed to be you, perhaps with a loved one or group of friends, in a magical connected space. Perhaps a whole marvellous world was surrounding you, but you were just afloat, content within your charmed space for a while. Perhaps you were falling in love, perhaps you were watching the sunrise, or perhaps you were just high on life for a while.

Sometimes these magical moments seem to come so easily, but at other times, in the repetitive struggle of everyday life, they seem like a distant memory. You have to fight for moments like this, and after all, aren’t they worth fighting for? Isn’t that memory of what it’s like to be alive what you swore you’d never forget?

If you want to treat yourself and make special moments, Wild Goat Events do all the work for you so you don’t have to! They create luxury events, like their latest ‘Toast the Sun’ experience where you will be picked up in a luxury car, like maybe a Kombi. They’ll take you to the sun, well, close enough to the sunrise to see it, and after that they’ll leave you alone, Bohemian style… well actually more emphasis on the style, and the Boho, as we’re in Byron here, not floating on Dal Lake in Peshawar or on Lake Inle any more!

Stylish rug, stylish cushions, feathers, stones, maybe coral and some driftwood? Sure, but these are just props, aren’t they; setting the mood is really up to you. Maybe you’re going to propose, maybe you’re going to share something unforgettable with the friends who are so important to you. Maybe you’re just going to remind your partner that they’re the one you really want to share a sunrise with.

And then there’s food, which can be more than a prop, it can be essential, especially when you’ve arisen before sunrise and you want to keep the mood going. Even the gods would have the occasional sip of ambrosia, wouldn’t they? Whatever it is, it’s fresh, local produce, perhaps sustainable and home-made, served with seasonal fruit, cold -pressed juice and spring water.

Want something more? Give Hannah a ring at Wild Goat Events and see whether they have what might make it special for you.
