We’ve made huge strides with our wedding planning (I know I know, just stop talking about it already!) but now we’re stumped on the most fun part of the wedding—our honeymoon!
Not only are we doing the wedding in Italy, but we’re planning to do a big trip immediately following the wedding for a few weeks of newlywed bliss. But the problem is…we don’t know where to go.
Talk about first world problems, but this is a really special trip for us and there are so many places we want to visit. Not to mention, Zika is really limiting our options. The CDC website might be the 2nd most visited in my browser (behind my online banking, because, money), and it’s really spreading. There are now warnings for the majority of Africa as well as most of Southeast Asia, which was where we really wanted to go. Our original plan was to do a mix of Sri Lanka, Cambodia and Thailand, but Cambodia and Thailand aren’t an option anymore (babies are in our not-so-distant future, hopefully!) We’ve been throwing around Japan (because it’s been Josh’s dream to go and after my trip with Garance I know it’s amazing!) or going to Africa for a mix of Cape Town, Safari, and beach. We’re hoping to do a mix of exploration and adventure and some beach—we’re definitely not the people to stay in one resort or be at the beach for the whole trip. Our registry includes a honeymoon fund (we’ve been living together for 4 years, we don’t really need that much stuff for our home), so we really want to figure out something amazing!
All that to say, I’d love your advice and recommendations! Anywhere that you’ve been that was truly life-changing with your loved one? Or honeymoon horror stories and things we should avoid?
