Honeymoon Do-Over - Bedbugs Ruined the First One
My hubby and I are thinking about doing our honeymoon over. Previously we decided to travel to Fort Lauderdale Florida and spend a week there. We decided to do this because we paid for our own wedding, so traveling in country was more within our budget after paying for a wedding. Unfortunately we ran into a ton of bad luck. When we arrived in Florida after a long 17+ drive. We checked in to our hotel, checked the mattress for any pests before retiring and went to bed. We were greeting 30 minutes later by a ton of bedbugs crawling all over the bed, pillows, etc. Horrified we showered, took pictures of the pests, asked for our money back, and had to throw away our luggage and seal everything in zip lock bags. Exhausted we went to the laundry mat to clean our clothes to make sure no bugs were going home with us. With us being on a budget we didn't want to risk another hotel being that it may too have bedbugs along with the fact that we just couldn't afford to pay for another week since we had to wait for our original payment from the infested hotel to be put back in our account. We ended up returning home that very day :( We are both afraid to stay in a hotel now being that we have learned that Bed bugs in hotels is becoming quite common now. We also registered the hotel we stayed in with the bedbugregistry online. Come to find out tons of hotels in that area have reports of bedbugs. Any HM suggestions without the need to stay in a hotel? We're both in need of creative ideas!
