We are leaving for our honeymoon in a little more than a week! The countdown is on. Through all of the wedding planning process I was most looking forward to a really amazing trip.
Scott and I sat down and talked about what kind of honeymoon we wanted. The things on our list:
- Leave within 2 weeks of the wedding (check, but just barely)
- Head to a country neither of us had been (check)
- Have a mix of activities and downtown (check)
- Find somewhere with great food (big check!)
- Go on a 2 week honeymoon (check)
A few of the ideas that crossed our mind:
- England, Ireland, Scotland
- India (more me than Scott)
- A cruise
I started doing a little research and found a great deal for a Thailand trip and within a week of finding it we had booked it! We will be gone for 2 weeks with almost 11 of those days spent in Thailand. There is some travel time and a few days in LA in there as well.
We picked up our guide books and got highlighting and planning. We have a few days in key places we wanted to see and now we are the time when we are ready to start putting our backpacks together.
I picked up a few new travel essentials for the trip.
A basic black travel dress from Colombia, great for hot sticky weather and something I can dress up and down.
A long maxi dress from Athleta for days we are visiting temples and my legs need to be covered, I can use a shall to cover my shoulders. Similar to this one.
New Sunglasses (thanks for Firmoo for sending me these, and they are doing an offer right now for a free pair for new customers you just need to pay for shipping!) I ordered these in Green. They came with a great protective case and look great on. So excited to bring these on the trip.
My goal is to be completely packed by Sunday! I am traveling for work next week and really don’t want to be stressed before we leave. Planning is key!
