When it was all said and done, including the cruise and flights, our honeymoon came to about $10,000. It never would have been a possibility for us without Traveler's Joy. As we said on our original Traveler's Joy webpage, we'll take memories that last a lifetime over a toaster any day!
With the help of our Traveler's Joy registry, we had received enough gifts to celebrate New Years at the Giltretrind Restaurant at the Stein Erikson Lodge. Nestled on the side of Deer Valley Mountain Resort, we watched the snow-cats groom the mountain while enjoying our five-course meal, including steak and Maine lobster.
As we started thinking about our honeymoon, we realized we wanted to make it just as special and memorable as our wedding day. We thought it would be great to minimize the "stuff" factor.
We came upon Traveler's Joy and the key to our dream trip. We were thrilled! And we loved the freedom Traveler's Joy gave us to invent the trip, and tell a story to our friends using the honeymoon description section.
Without Traveler's Joy, we wouldn't have been able to have a honeymoon at all. Emre is a graduate student and Annina works for a non-profit organization, so money is always a little tight. We paid for much of the wedding ourselves, and even though it was a small affair, it didn't leave much left over for a honeymoon.
We registered for every one of our excursions, which turned out to be a very wise decision! This enabled us to see and do so many activities without constantly worrying about the credit card bills piling up.
