Hawaii for two weeks on miles… We are super excited!!! He has applied for his green card (from the UK) and it might be difficult to leave the states as he would need to file extra paperwork.
We are going for 2 weeks and going to try and see Maui, the Big Island and Kauai. We both love to be active and explore, but hopefully there is some time to relax and enjoy our honeymoon!

- Wedding: September 2009 - Rancho Bernardo Inn
We are currently researching, but counted the Caribbean out due to hurricanes. Right now we are leaning towards Hawaii, Kauai.
What resources are you all using to plan? Any favorite travel sites?

We were going to do the Greek Islands, but we kept giving travel agents a (pretty good sized) budget for hotels and transfers, and none of them could stick to it. And we were both starting to get annoyed, and concerned about hopping from island to island..and the cost etc…It got pretty obvious that we weren’t feeling it anymore when we stopped planning/looking things up. When we’re excited about something we stick to it!
So we scrapped that and instead we’re flying to San Diego, staying there for a few days and then doing the drive up the coast to San Fran and wine country, stopping in a bunch of places along the way. and then flying out of San Fran back home to Boston.
And we’re able to fly 1st class, both ways for free because of FI’s air miles, which is awesome.

Well you all are making me maybe a bit nervous now but we were thinking Aruba? We’ve never been around there at all and would love to see that beautiful water etc! I was told Aruba usually misses out on all of those big storms though because of how it’s situated?? that the big storms go more above and below it and it gets left out..no? I sure hope! A girl at work has a time share there so we could vakay for cheap!

Also going to Hawaii here! I would check into tripadvisor. This site is great, its allows you to see the reviews of people who actually stayed in hotels, ate at resturants, went on the excursions, etc. They even rank these places. I’ve booked many vacations based on these rankings and have found them to be very true!

We just booked a resort in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico with insurance just in case a hurricane decides to visit. Hopefully not.

We went to Greece last September. Visited Athens, Mykonos, Santorini, Delos & Crete. It’s not too crowded which is a plus!

Boyfriend and I were talking about this last night! We went to Hawaii in February (wonderful!) and realized that while I love laying on the beach with a book and a drink, boyfriend gets bored after a while. We put 1,000 miles on our rental car in Hawaii in one week. SO I think the plan will be to spend a week at my parents lake place right after we get married in July of 2010 so I can get in my post-wedding craziness lay around time, and then that September or October go to Europe for two weeks so that boyfriend can get in his sightseeing time. Best of both worlds? Hopefully we have the vacation time and money for it!

- Wedding: September 2009 - Westwind YWCA camp
We travel a lot, so we’re going to go "local". We have a tiny cabin in the middle of nowhere on an island off the coast of western canada booked for a full week after the wedding. Nothing but kayaking, running, biking, fresh goat cheese, fresh coffee, and newlywedded bliss!
