Our plans for our honeymoon have changed quite a bit since we started talking about what we wanted to do after getting engaged. We, of course, initially booked the crazy European Monstermoon Extravaganza, but when my work situation changed, so did our vacation priorities. We had a big time blasty blast on our Mini-moon weekend in downtown St Louis right after the wedding, and have been thinking this whole time since that we would book your stereotypical sit-on-a-beach-for-a-week honeymoon on an island somewhere. After our drive back from Thanksgiving, we're really excited to go in a completely different direction.
We have been really reluctant to book anything, in spite of staying in contact with our travel agent and throwing out all sorts of fun destinations like St Lucia and Riviera Maya. We finally figured out tonight that it's because we don't really want to take that sort of vacation. The draw of the European trip was the action and adventure side of it - having all sorts of things to see, do, and experience together. While relaxing poolside sounds really good on paper, we're just not sure that's where we want to spend our time (and money) right now.
Instead, we have decided to continue our Mini-Moon theme and start taking trips to action-packed destinations, all in the name of a honeymoon. We will eventually take that trip to Europe, but in the meantime we want to hit some of the other places we've never been. We can take long weekends and still see, do, and experience a lot of things together, mostly here stateside.
First up? We're thinking New York City. I've been, but Mr LikesIt has not. I am dying to see the Met, and we are both intrigued by the Green Day rock opera, and of course some of the best restaurants and shopping in the world. The more we talked about it, the more excited we got. It seems like a great choice for us.
Honeymoons are awesome, why just have one?
