Our Honeymoon

Tuscany (via)

Okay, get ready for a bit of a saga, but I’m excited to say that my fiancé and I have settled on a honeymoon destination – Italy, Tuscany and Sardinia to be exact! I basically had my heart set on a safari in South Africa (which I sort of eluded to a couple times) and we had everything all planned and ready to go, until I tried to book our safari lodge and it was sold out. And so was every other one in the vicinity. So, word to the wise, if you’re trying to go to Africa for a safari, you need to book more than 8 months in advance.  After going back to the drawing board and considering and ruling out (for all sorts of reasons) a whole bunch of places (India, Morocco, Egypt, Bora Bora, Sri Lanka, Turkey, Greece, Bali), we settled on Italy for the delicious food and wine, ease of travel, and depth of culture. South Africa will just have to wait a couple years.

We’re planning to spend about a week in the Tuscan countryside, exploring small towns, the wine region, and some famous sites, followed by a week of relaxing by the sea in Sardinia (and of course exploring Sardinia culture). So, if anyone has any tips, must sees, things to avoid, whatever, please let us know!
