It's no surprise to anyone who knows us that we are on the very defintion of a shoe-string budget. I'm doing my best to save up money for the wedding, but that seems like fighting a losing battle at times.
Regardless, while Allicia is stressing out about wedding stuff, I'm bogged down by a Honeymoon destination. Thankfully, I am marrying an amazingly understanding woman who has left it to me to surprise her about where we go.
I know the important thing is that we're together. In a world where money isn't a problem, our dream trip would be a train ride across the country to Seattle, with our own little cabin, and a stay in a bed and breakfast while touring one of America's greatest cities. However, if we took that trip, I don't think we'd enjoy it because we'd be pinching pennies so hard and a train ride like that would look better in the fall, instead of early summer.
SOOOOO what to choose? Here are some ideas that I have. The key is to make sure we can drive there: Flying is too expensive.
1. Niagara Falls.
2. Virginia Beach
3. Lake Erie
Getting a bed and breakfast in Lake Erie would be a fun getaway that wouldn't take all day to get to. A Bed and Breakfast just sounds crazy romantic, and being in a small-town setting would be an extremely relaxing change of pace.
4. Harrisburg, PA
So, what should I do? Do any of the options appeal to you? Or should I choose something radically different? Please tell us your suggestions!
