- Wedding: November 2013
We were originally thinking Sandals St. Lucia, and had to decide against it due to budget constraints. So we decided to go to Sandals Jamacia. While it wasn’t our first choice, it was defiantly in the budget and seemed like a nice honeymoon spot. So boom we had it settled, we’d go to Jamacia!
or so I thought….
Soooo… Mr.D and I went to a lovely breakfast this morning and had a bunch off productive wedding talk! He brought up the honeymoon! starting off by..”you didn’t book the honeymoon yet, did you?” My heart kind of sank after that left his mouth. ” of course not honey; I was making sure its what we defiantly wanted first.” I said.
before I go any farther, please let me tell you a quick fact about myself and Hub to be. We are a very active motorcycle couple who really enjoy ride together. Heck, our engagement pictures were even taken with the bikes LOL. I have been for a long time wanting to upgrade my bike to a new 2013 CBR, but have not been able to due to wedding planning. The plan was to purchase a new bike after the wedding had been paid off and we had taken our honeymoon. So definitely have been wanting this bike for a long time, but have pretty much been forced to push to the back of my mind for now.
so at breakfast he proceeds to tell me about a quite intriguing plan for our honeymoon. Long story short, he suggests maybe postponing the “big” honeymoon, buying my new bike, and we would load my new bike and his up in the truck and head down to the Florida keys for our honeymoon there. There we would be able to ride around all the islands together on my BRAND NEW motorcycle, next to him, and get our tropical vacation in. I have never been down to the keys before and have always been dying to go. For the price of our original honeymoon, we could buy the bike, rent a villa for a week, have money left over for lots of food, drinks, swimming with the dolphins, deep sea fishing, etc. AND still be able to take a “big honeymoon” for our one year anniversary! He even said we could go to st Lucia since we had a full year to budget for it and would have some $ left over from bike& keys trip!! Two vacations, a motorcycle, and some leftover $?!? Sounds great to me!!!
what do you bees think?
anyone taken a Keys honeymoon/ vacation and have any recommendations? 🙂
