It was cold and foggy this morning and I had to hum "Eye of the Tiger" to get through my morning bike commute. Brrrrr! I love it when Bill kisses me goodbye in the morning as I leave on my bike, he has taken to saying "It's not that cold!" before he heads back into the house. BRRRRRRRR!
I was up late last night trying to narrow down our honeymoom options. We're going somewhere in early December so we need to book NOW! Originally we were trying to decide between Greece and backpacking around Belize. Then we looked at cost for travel and paid for the wedding and then narrowed it down to Belize or Cozumel. Airfare into Cancun is really great right now and there are several deals on hotels there. Once Bill started the MBA program we realized that there was no way he was going to be able to work a side job (returning to school for a 2nd masters in your mid 30s is not cheap, even with a scholarship!) so we eliminated Belize and are now trying to decide between Cancun, Playa del Carmen, and Cozumel.
I'm not at all unhappy about the compromise, look at these photos from Cancun! Bill wants to dive, lay in hammocks and drink fu-fu drinks. I want to stay at a nice resort, eat great food, and enjoy the natural beauty of Mexico. I have to admit that I am not sorry about losing the "backpackers" travel style either, we live that lifestyle in Oregon and I don't need it on my honeymoon! I want a nice resort where I can wear a dress to dinner and have clean hair. I think we're going to go to an all-inclusive resort. So yeah, flea ridden hotel in Belize or 4 star resort in Mexico... I'm ready to book!
