Mr. Gloss and I have been researching honeymoon escapes and would like something more along the lines of the second image rather than the first. We could wait until hurricane season ends – but honestly, if we don’t go right after our wedding, we will probably never get around to it. Also, I think I’m definitely going to need a break after the whole wedding thing goes down. Wanting to avoid all chances of being destroyed by a potential hurricane on our honeymoon, I immediately started brainstorming locations other than due South (Caribbean/Bahamas/Mexico).
The Tentative List:
Philippines/Thailand: I think of an exotic location, luxury resorts and cheap ($5) massages on the beach. Mr. Gloss thinks of drinking water in undeveloped countries and ending up like Charlotte on SATC. Also, I heard Asia was super humid in the summer which crosses it off my list as I am CHG (curly hair girl) and don’t want to look like a troll in any pics we may take.
Europe: I lived in Florence for about 5 months and basically used it like a home base for traveling about Europe, Mr. Gloss visited and I dragged him around on a speed tour of Europe after which he was thoroughly exhausted. I heart Europe, but not for our honeymoon – there is just too much I want to see and do that I wouldn’t be able to relax.
Australia & French Polynesia: Not totally eliminated yet; but will most likely be crossed off the list due to extensive flight times. Mr. Gloss is almost worse than a 3-year old when it comes to sitting down for an extended period of time.
Up Next: We try to determine exactly where the ‘hurricane zone’ is – and if we can get away with a closer locale.
