Oh we were in Punta Cana! Words of advice: when we were there, everybody and their mom got food poisoning. Watch your eggs. be sure they cook them 100% b/c they have a tendency to undercook. soembody just told me that overseas they use raw egg in their caesar dressing. stay away. DO NOT brush your teeth with the water, they say you can, but don’t. just use bottled, you get plenty of it anyways.

Just some advice. seriously, everybody has gotten sick and this is the “compiled list” of what not to do thus far.

And don’t bring the Mama Juana home. It looks like wood chips in a bottle, then they make it like lemoncello over a month. They will confiscate it at the airport.

bring some bug spray. the sand fleas are fierce over there. we went to target and got aluminum water bottles that had straws. the bartenders happilly filled them up with margaritas and pina coladas for us, then we had icy cool beverages for much much longer than anybody else!

We are torn between two very different locations… he first found this amazing hideaway resort in Costa Rica, and I was ready to go swimsuit shopping.  Then, on his way to Afghanistan, his unit stopped in Ireland (we’re both of Irish descent).  Now we’re thinking of going there!  Either would be perfect.  We agreed that wherever we don’t honeymoon, we’ll go on an anniversary trip in a few years.

10 days in Dominica–the Nature Island of the Carribean. Lots of beautiful waterfalls, hiking, and eco-friendly places to stay.

We aren’t sure if we’re going to be able to afford it yet, but our dream is to do a back-to-back cruise! We’d like to do one week by ourselves, then have my sister and her family join us for the second week – it would be a ton of fun, and we’re hoping to eventually start a tradition of yearly cruises with my sister’s family, and what could be a better way to start that off?!

We’re going to Hawaii! We have a looong list of places we want to travel to, but none of them seemed all that ideal for a July honeymoon.

We are getting married in October, so we are renting a cabin right outside of Smokey Mountain National Park in Tennessee-at the height of leaf changes, it will be glorious to enjoy the mountains during high season! I’m so looking forward to our very secluded cabin with very private hot tub with a roaring fire, a glass of wine and a view over the mountains! Oh…let’s not forget smooching with my new hubby in that steamy hot tub!

We are spending 4 days in Lenox, Massachusetts (peak of leaf season apparently??) and then 4 days in Cape Cod. We are both land locked midwesterners, so we are REALLY looking forward to some R&R in new england!

We’re splitting our honeymoon into 2 parts.  Part 1 was a mini-moon in Jackson Hole after the wedding.  We spent a week there, hiking through Yellowstone, biking, eating everything we wanted and just relaxing.  Part 2 is a ten-day trip to Belize over the holidays to snorkel, hike, fish and sun-bathe.  Can’t wait!

We’re going to fish and snorkel and boat and TAN and relax!  Cant wait!

We are thinking about Secrests Maroma Beach…or Paris. Big difference. Somehow a beach destination seems more fitting because we’ll get to relax completely, snorkel, scuba, kayak etc. but Paris seems sooo romantic.
