Honeymoon thoughts

So, I've been thinking about fun things to do with the wedding lately....like the honeymoon.  I know I want to go somewhere up north.  Originally I was thinking Canada...and I still think that's a possibility.  More so because the newest idea I have probably isn't....due to cost. 

I want to go to Greenland.  

As my mom said.....what is wrong with you?!?  Nothing!  That's the answer.  I live in Florida, first off. It's tropical.  It's hot.  I can get a tan at least 10 months out of the year if I chose to.  I don't need to go to somewhere tropical.  Don't get me wrong....I would love to go to Hawaii or Jamaica or Aruba.....but for my honeymoon.....I just want to go somehwere....different.  

And the far ends of the earth have always intised ( I'm sure that is spelled wrong) me more than anywhere else.  Before I ever go to those Equator vacation destinations I would much rather visit the Yukon, Alaska, Greenland, Iceland, The North and South Poles.  It's so freaking interesting and....different. 

So, here's the problem.  How do I get there and how much will it cost?  I found some cruises...but most of them cost some pretty big bucks.  Not to mention that they only go through the summer months.  Meaning...Sept. is out!  

And that is when I want to go.  Even more now that I know that Sept. is the month of the Northern Lights.  How freaking awesome would that be...especially for a honeymoon?!?!?!  

That's all.  It just on my mind and I wanted to share.

Alaska!!! Alaska!!! Go to ALASKS!!!

It's absolutely beautiful, stunning and a-mazing!! The Northern Lights are the definition of unbelievable and there is so much to do. B&B’s, natural hot springs, glaciers, hiking, delicious salmon, moose…the list is endless.

I can only imagine planning a wedding and trying to plan a honeymoon financially but if you can make it work I highly recommend Alaska…and, it’s extremely romantic if you like that cuddle up with nature part of life!!!!

LINDSEY!!!!!!!

First off, let me say....HOLY CRAP-OLA! Lindsey....it is SO wonderful to see you on here. It's pretty dead and quiet these days....I was so super excited when I saw your name in my inbox!

Thank you for your opinion on Alaska. It's definatly one I am toying with. Luckily, Chris's mom and dad offered to pay for the honeymoon. That gives me a bit more to work with. My mom and dad will pay for 1/2 of the ceremony stuff and we'll be covering the rest. So, I have great family to work with...Praise the Lord!

There is no way I could do it without them. How are things with you??????? Good I hope. Thanks again and I'll keep you updated on what we'll be doing. Any more tips...I'd love to hear. Do you know anywhere in particular we should stay or look into? This is going to be my favorite part about the whole wedding....going on a super awesome trip!

Phoenix or Flame

First of all. Do it. My dad woke up on his 45th birthday and decided that he wanted to go to Greenland because he had never been there. He said it was amazing, and that I should go whenever I get the chance.

So, do it.

I would suggest flying, in the winter the prices will be lowest, since every one is heading for the warmer climates.

Try Kayak.com. It's really good.
