Honeymoon = Booked!

Forget this wedding planning stuff. Scott and I are going to Thailand!

Though technically we are getting married first.

We had hemmed and hawed over booking a honeymoon since we’re not going right after our wedding anyway. The wedding is at the beginning of November but since Scott will still be in school, we decided to wait until January to get the heck outta dodge. This way he’ll be on winter break and I’ll have new vacation time, plus we’ll have something to look forward to through the holidays. Also – leaving Chicago in January to go someplace warm just sounds like a really good idea.

Krabi, take me away!

We had originally wanted to go to Australia because I’m crazy and think money grows on trees. Once reality set it, we started looking a little closer to home. We actually even decided to wait until after the wedding was over to book so we could be responsible and know what our finances looked like but then we decided that irresponsibility was the way to go. Well, sort of. Anyplace we go (that’s warm) in January is going to be popular and the longer we wait the more expensive things will likely be, so when I found a good deal on a trip to Thailand, we decided to jump on it. And I’m so glad we did!

We’ll be spending 3 nights in Bangkok before flying to the small southern coastal town of Krabi for 3 more nights. Then we’ll have one more evening in Bangkok before heading home. We’ll be touring the city and also doing an island hopping excursion while in Krabi, so we’ve got a good mix of adventure and relaxation which is what we both were hoping for. Now we just have to get through the wedding and we’ll be all set!
