I’d heard about Traveler’s Joy from a co-worker and as soon as I saw the website, it was extremely apparent that this was the right type of registry for us. Our friends and family couldn’t wait to start contributing to our celebratory retreat.
One of our other favorite memories that Traveler's Joy allowed us to enjoy was a romantic couples massage in two small wood cabanas on the resort grounds. Rain started to fall during our time, which only added a beautiful harmony to an already special moment.
All in all, after receiving $3,000 in gifts from friends and family, we enjoyed two full weeks in Europe, taking excursions in nearly every port, toasting to our marriage with rivers of wine, eating some of the best food imaginable and seeing some of the greatest sites in the world, all for about $200 out of pocket - total!
We visited the desert, tropics, savanna, and subtropics, and we marveled at them all. Our trip cost of about $8,500 was offset by about $2,500 from Traveler's Joy in addition to other monetary gifts.
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.
Our honeymoon was going to be different than our usual vacations because we finally had enough time off to do something totally over-the-top and with Traveler's Joy to support our plans, we knew Africa was calling us!
