I went to Turkey and Greece. We were surprised that we loved Turkey even more than Greece! In Turkey, we went to Istanbul and Bodrum. In Greece, we went to Athens, Santorini, Crete (Heraklion and Chania), Rhodes and Naxos.


If anyone wants any more information, let me know!

Kaya and Cookie,


For the Greece portion of the honeymoon, we started in Rhodes. We took a ferry there from Turkey.  We stayed in the old city of Rhodes, which is a midieval walled city.  Our hotel was great! We stayed at Spirit of the Knights boutique hotel. We had a beautiful room with the most amazing bed ever. The hotel was very small, but has a little courtyard in the back with lounge chairs and served a wonderful  (if I recall correctly) organic breakfast. The hotel was very green friendly and had hemp towels, low flow toilets etc.


The town of Rhodes was fun to walk around for a day, but very busy with European tourists and cruise ships. We enjoyed staying in the walled city for a night, but if you're going to Rhodes for a longer period of time I'd recommend staying at a hotel on the beach.


From Rhodes we went to (I think!) Crete. We hiked the Samaria gorge, the longest gorge in Europe. We woke up very early one morning for our guided tour of the gorge. It was a beaufiful hike, and at times, scary! The narrowest part of the gorge is known as the Gates, as it has steep cliffs that rise over 300m with a very narrow passage of only 3m. At this part of the gorge, you are hiking through a stream of low water. In the winter, however, the spring fills up and provides water for much of Greece. The hike took about 5 hours, and our guide pointed out wildlife and even endangered birds.


I need to look up my notes for more info! Are there any particular islands of Greece you two are interested in?

We flew to Australia and boarded a cruise ship that then went through the South pacific (ie. Bora Bora, Tahiti,Moorea) and then went to Maui and disembarked in Honolulu Hawaii. It was a 16 day cruise and then we spent another three days in Hawaii once we got off the ship. It was AWESOME!!! The trip of a lifetime, for sure!

It was AMAZING! It was not cheap, but we knew that it would be our one big trip before "real life", kids, etc. It was a Royal Caribbean cruise on the Rhapsody of the sea. We literally planned our wedding date around this honeymoon plan because this cruise only sails once a year from Australia to Hawaii. I do think that at some point during the year it goes from Hawaii and makes the return trip to Australia, but Im not sure what month that takes place.

We've postponed our honeymoon plans due to our house purchase.  The soon to be DH will be taking two weeks off work for the wedding and we'll be flying into St. Louis 4 days after the wedding where we'll be spending the rest of the honeymoon prepping our house for move in.

Hey ladies!  I found a good website for you to look up airfare.  It has a price predictor that tells you when to book, wait because fares are dropping, etc. 


http://www.bing.com/travel/


I don't know why but a friend told me that on Tuesdays fares drop.  You might want to test that theory out.  We bought tickets on a Tuesday for a Cabo trip and it was 40 dollars less.  Maybe Tuesdays are Fare Wars day for the airline companies because it is cheap.


Sign up for travelzoo to get emails.  Their cheaps of week are really that.  We found rooms at a nice hotel in Las Vegas for $35/per night.

If any brides are intrested I know of an amazing travel agent, I went to Tahiti and Moorea. Only an 8 hour flight and a 3 hour time difference. Waking up over the water is one of the most amazing experiences.


Happy Planning everyone,



Yasmine
