Ah! Thailand here we come! I feel like for the last 2 months, all I have been talking about is how I need to get it together and book our Honeymoon and finally, this weekend FH & I sat down and booked {Most} of our trip! I am so beyond excited I cannot even begin to explain! Now that we've started I just want to continue booking the rest, but FH wants to wait a little.. but I just cant stop!!! I literally feel like I am buzzing with excitement.

We're flying out at 11:30am the day after our wedding & spending 2 weeks traveling in Thailand, visiting Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Phuket & the Phi Phi Islands!

Now more than ever I am just ready for it to be our wedding day & go on our Honeymoon!

Where are/did you go on your honeymoon & how long?

    @Santamaria- where do you think you guys will cruise to?

    @mrs1780 - Oh we went to Riveria Maya and Absolutely LOVED it! Make sure you guys visit the Cenotes!

    @Kristina - lol thanks!

    @Rebecca - That sounds nice.. and That makes me so happy to hear, I've heard Amazing things from friends who have been and honestly feel like its going to be a dream trip!

    VMDizzle - hmmm thats a tough one.. I say maybe put at least a deposit down, I'm with you that If you dont do it now while you have it you might keep putting it off to "a better time". You ladies deserve the trip!

    As far as how we picked Thailand; We love to travel, we do it often and since we've decided to TTC shortly after the wedding we figured we should make our honeymoon our "go big or go home trip". We were deciding between Greece, Thailand, and a few other places, and it really came down to the fact that we would probably never travel to Thailand once we have kids(either with them or leaving them home) since its literally on the other side of the world, and takes at minimum 20 hours to get there! FH has also always wanted to go to Asia, and Thailand is the only place that I have a SERIOUS interest in going in that region, I LOVE elephants, like have an obsession, and it has always been a dream of mine to go to a sanctuary and just spend the day with them, and Thailand felt like the best place to do that.. lol all of that among a slew of other reasons are what sold us!

    SantaMaria - I love the Bahamas! We used to vacation there every summer when I was little! FH & I also did a cruise there a few years ago, some of the bluest water I have ever seen!

    WWKatie - St. Lucia is one of the few Islands that we haven't made it to, & keep being told we should definitely make a trip out! You guys will have a blast!

    Wow so exciting! Glad you guys are doing that, it sounds like a great adventure to start your lives together with.

    FH and I love to travel but for a honeymoon we both decided a beach to lay on with drinks is all we wanted to do. We decided on Riviera Maya for 8 days. We are doing 1 day cruise trip though! That will be fun.

    We are going 6 weeks after our wedding [4.5 weeks away now!]. It sucked coming back to work the Tuesday after our wedding, but we are both sick this week from the sleepless nights so I am glad we are waiting and have something to look forward to.

    Lara - That sounds Beautiful! Do you guys snorkel or scuba? There's lots of Amazing reefs in all of those locations!

    JennB - me too! I feel like a huge weight is off my shoulders, and interestingly enough its made me feel like things are getting REAL!

    Santamaria - it's a lot of fun and the great thing about cruises is that everything is right there, you dont have to think about anything! its really great for relaxing!

    FutureSeptMrs- It is going to be quite an adventure! lol I love the relaxing & doing nothing part of traveling too which is why I made sure that we spend most of our time in relaxing beach places in Thailand, otherwise I think we would need a vacation from our vacation

    Bethie - I'll be more than happy to give All the Thailand Tips when we come back! we have a few other camera's but this is the first Real Deal one we're going to get, the Sony x100 4, so Im pretty excited for that too lol

    AlmostMrsCamilo - We booked on our own, through Expedia, I compiled a few lists of hotels & things friends who have been to Thailand in the last 2 years gave me and we just picked the best hotels from there. We tried going though travel agents but they told us that our budget (of $7000) was too small for Thailand, which is complete & utter BS. Its so easy to travel there inexpensively and still very nicely! The most expensive part is flying out there!

    Congratulations!! We have friends who went to Thailand for their honeymoon two years ago and they still talk about how it was the BEST trip of their life. They absolutely loved it. Everything was gorgeous and apparently it was very, very reasonable financially. They told us what they spent for two weeks and I thought it was insanely low.
