I hope you all had an amazing weekend! I’m sorry I was MIA from the blog world the past two days. I’ve been traveling…a lot! I left Florida on Saturday :(. I’m sad to be gone from Chris again. I’m trying not to think about it and just focus on the fact that I’ll see in him August. So after flying home on Saturday, I drove back to Pigeon Forge, TN yesterday for another trip to the Smoky Mountains! I can’t wait for some hiking!
Anyway, while in Florida this past week, Chris and I made some headway on wedding planning. Or actually, honeymoon planning! We decided where we are going!!
We’re going to JAMAICA :D.
Specifically we’re going to the Couples Swept Away Resort. And we are beyond excited for it! Originally we were looking at honeymoon places in St. Lucia and Antigua, but after lots of Googling and speaking with a travel agent, we decided on Jamaica. Jamaica is just as gorgeous as those other locations, but it is slightly less pricey- which for us two who have been in school and not working- is perfect!
Also, with the price of the resort being less, we are able to get a better type of room (and one on the beach) than we would in those other locations….YAY!
The resort is all-inclusive- it has 6 restaurants; 3 pools; 5 jacuzzis; 8 bars (including one on the beach, a piano bar, and a swim-up one); a sports complex with tennis, raquetball, and squash courts, a fitness center, track, and yoga classes. It also has watersports, golf, a spa, and several types of cruises you can take- some of which are included in the price! There are also excursions that we can pay extra for – I saw something about swimming with dolphins and I totally wanna do that!
The placeis absolutely gorgeous. It doesn’t look too commercialized and everything just screams honeymoon to us :). The pictures make it look idyllic, breathtaking, and intimate. And our travel agent told us that the Couples Resorts get great reviews and are well-known for their good service.
Ahhhh I seriously can’t wait! As Chris said a few days ago…”Can we just go on our honeymoon now??” haha…I wish :D.
I hope my stamina holds up for the mountains we’ll be climbing today! And I hope you all have a great one!
