Our Honeymoon is Booked! Guess Where We’re Going?

30 Sep

**I’d like to apologize to my readers in advance for any excessive use of exclamation points.**

I’d been waiting until it was official to bring this up.

Jorge and I have booked our honeymoon! (over a year late, but ya know… whatever.)

In just a few weeks, we’ll be strolling along the streets and beaches of RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL!!!!

We’ll also be spending some of our time in nearby BUZIOS!!! So gorgeous.

This is really exciting for both of us. For me, I work in the travel industry and I’m surrounded by vacationers all the time, but I rarely get to travel myself! This will be my first time outside of North America.

For Jorge, not only is it his first time outside of Mexico… it’s his first time flying!

We need to save up some vacation spending money this month, and I need to pick up the pace at the gym. (My goal is to be rich and skinny in Rio.)

What’s your dream honeymoon destination?

    Hurrah, big congrats! How exciting for both of you, “once in a lifetime” trip for sure!

    You’ll need some extra memory cards for the camera. 😉

    Buen viaje!

      Thanks for the nice words and the advice, Kelly! I’ll definitely need to buy a memory card (or 7).

    Ah! So amazing! When is Carnaval- are you going to be there for that?

    As cheesy as it sounds, I think Disney World is my dream honeymoon- that’s where my parents went for theirs and I’m a total Disney World nut! 🙂

    Yay!!!! That is going to be sooo much fun! I would LOVE to go to Rio! I hope y’all have a blast!

    We went to Hawaii for our honeymoon & had a blast! I would love to do a trip for an anniversary trip sometime. Costa Rica would be the dream location for that one!

    How exciting! You’re going to love it. (We went to Rio for our honeymoon :). It’s so beautiful and romantic.
    I haven’t been to Buzios yet but I hear it’s a dream.
    Have fun.

    PS: Just keep in mind that Brazil is EXPENSIVE.

    Oh my gosh!!! I’m soooo excited [read: jealous!] for you guys! This sounds AMAZING!!! It’s crazy to think a year ago we were in Mexico and two years ago we were in Jamaica this week. Note to self…book a vaca after this baby arrives! 🙂

    Whoa!! Congrats congrats… so cool. OMG- I keep telling myself I want to go just to see that giant Jesus, but I’m sure it’s so much more. Congrats to both of you for making your honeymoon happen fabulously!
