Jessica & Brent

June 4, 2010

Now, some of you might think, "How are Jessica and Brent going to get all the things they need for their new life together if all they are registering for is a trip?" Well, frankly Jessica and Brent already have almost everything they need. They both have had their own places for several years now. Therefore, they have double vacuum cleaners, double comforters, double lamps, double chairs, quadruple towels, etc.

Also, think of anything that newlyweds need to get their lives started, and they already have it. Plates? Got them. Flatware? Have it. Coffee maker? Use it every day. Crock Pot? Still in the box. What about fine china? Don't want it.

What they want, and what they NEED is to see and to experience the world. That is why they are asking you to help them achieve this goal. Thank you!

We're going to Egypt, Jordan, and Greece!

We will travel to the places that we have dreamed of since we were children.

1.) Egypt - Nile River Cruise through Cairo, Giza, Aswan, Edfu, and Luxor

2.) Jordan - Petra

3.) Greece - Santorini & Athens
