The other night, as we lounged around with Mr. GP's brother and his brother's friend, we thought about all of our options - Italy, Barbados, Portugal, Mexico, Spain, France....and then Puerto Rico.
We thought more about it, and the friend sold us on it by telling us about all there is to do - culture, night life, beaches, and of course the jungle.
So we researched, and then it was done. 50,000 frequent flier miles later, Mr. GP had a first class round trip ticket, and $350 and 18,000 miles later, I had a first class one way, and a coach one way ticket with a gamble on whether I'll be able to pay for an upgrade or if I'll be sitting by my lonesome on the way to our honeymoon destination.
There's still research to be done - where we want to stay, what we'll do, but we're on a tight budget with me sans employment but this seemed like the best option that was both affordable, and a place outside of the US (kind of) that neither of us had ever been to.
But ladies, I have a honeymoon. I'm going on a 7 day, 6 night excursion to sunny San Juan, Puerto Rico!
If you have any advice about where to stay or what to do during our trip (we fly out Sunday afternoon after the post-wedding brunch, arrive around 1030p and leave Saturday afternoon to arrive back around 8p Saturday!) - let me know!
Where are you going for your honeymoon? How did you decide??
