Our honeymoon seemed to be the perfect opportunity to see the world without breaking the bank or having to give up our teaching jobs. Traveler's Joy helped make this dream a reality, and gave us incredible memories that will stay with us through the years.
Each of us owned our own homes prior to living together and had many of the housewares that newly engaged couples typically needed. And while there were a few household items that we registered for at the local department store, we wanted our guests to be a part of our honeymoon journey. Traveler's Joy fulfilled that desire and allowed us to get even more out of the once-in-a-lifetime vacation that was starting to take form.
We never would have been able to make our dream honeymoon a possibility without Traveler's Joy. The cruise and excursions would have cost us about $5,000, but our friends and family members helped us to make our dream a reality.
Having lived together since college, we had accumulated enough things to clutter our lives; the last thing we needed was more pots and pans. Friends of ours had used a Traveler's Joy registry for a honeymoon trip to Italy. We decided to follow their idea and use Traveler's Joy for our wedding road trip.
We weren't sure how our family and friends would react to our honeymoon registry, but it turned out to be a huge hit. The website was extremely easy for everyone to navigate. We were able to choose from a variety of wonderful activities and could pick exactly the ones that we wanted to partake in. Thanks to Traveler's Joy, our guests helped to create memories that we would never forget.
Through Traveler's Joy, our friends and family gifted us $2,600. Combined with the $3,000 we saved, we were able to enjoy 10 days, flights and food in Hawaii - and we spent every penny. Hawaii is an expensive destination, but we loved the spirit of the island and the experience of a true paradise.
