One of the first things we wondered was, "How can we do a wedding registry in Texas?" We looked into shipping rates by both air and ship and asked for opinions from those we know who have dealt with customs in Argentina, and we realized that a traditional wedding registry in Texas just wouldn't work out.

Neither of us had ever seen or used a honeymoon registry website, but after some contemplating and searching, we decided that this would be our best option for those "stateside" who want to give a wedding gift. It seemed so impersonal at first, but we ended up choosing this particular website because it let us personalize everything as much as we wanted...down to adding our own picture icons for every entry!

Of course, it was very important that the website be safe as well as well-known and trusted in the "bride-to-be community." We hope you enjoy browsing, and we look forward to being able to say, "Thank you for making this happen!"

We're going to Buenos Aires, Moscow, Beijing, and Hong Kong!

We are planning on a honeymoon adventure that most people would not consider very "honeymoon-like." We wanted to choose a destination that we felt we would have the least chance of returning to in the future. That, for us, is a journey along the TransMongolian Railway (known to many as the TransSiberian Railway).

Our plan is to be gone around a month, although the days on board the famous train only total six. We plan on flying from Buenos Aires to Moscow with a layover in London. We would like to spend 3 or 4 days in both Moscow and St. Petersburg. We will board the train in Moscow, make our first stop and spend a night in the town of Irkutsk, Russia, where we will be able to visit the world's deepest and most voluminous freshwater lake in the world: Lake Baikal. After hopping back on the train, we will cross the Russian/Mongolian border and head to Ulan Bator, the capital of Mongolia. Our journey on the TransMongolain Railway will end in Beijing, China.

In China, there are several places we would like to visit such as Xi'an, Hong Kong, and more. We plan on flying back to Buenos Aires from Beijing with a layover once again in London.
