Honeymoon: Want to be on the plane, not looking at it.

And the honeymoon recap officially begins! We went on a fantastic two and a half week honeymoon a little under a year after we got married - and let me tell you, it was a nice way to do it. Although we both could have used a bit of a break after the wedding, we would have been too strapped for energy and money to enjoy the vacation the way we were able to be waiting until the right time for us.

And we did it right, all the way. We booked a 13 night Royal Caribbean cruise that took us from Copenhagen, Denmark all the way to Athens, Greece (including a stop in Tunis, Tunisia, so Rob can now say he's been to Africa!). Our ports were:

Copenhagen, Denmark
Amsterdam, Holland
Brugge, Belgium (port was Zeebrugge)
Paris, France (port was Le Havre)
La Coruña, Spain
Málaga, Spain
Tunis, Tunisia
Valleta, Malta

Now be honest with yourself, have you ever seen as diverse a cruise itinerary as that? I certainly haven't. We jumped on booking our reservation. We usually had a day at sea inbetween ports, so we had time to rest and relax before gearing up for the next stop. We traveled from Northern Europe through the Mediterranean without having to focus on travel logistics so we were able to simply enjoy our ports.

It was a beautiful honeymoon. And some of that you will see as I go through posting our photos highlighting the trip.

This particular photo I took at the Orlando International Airport as we were waiting to board our first flight of the trip. Rob was looking out the window at our plane, giddy in his own quiet way. I was channeling my giddiness by documenting the moment.
