Our honeymoon was an amazing three and a half weeks, but it couldn't have happened without our friends and family, and of course Traveler's Joy, who made it really easy to organize.
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.
It helped so much that we used Traveler's Joy as our primary registry. I lived in my house for five years and did not need any of the "traditional" wedding gifts, so a honeymoon registry was the perfect registry for us.
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!
Our friends and family loved contributing to our adventure through Traveler's Joy, helping to pay for our barbecue dinner in Texas, massages in Santa Fe, gas, museums, and road snacks along the way.
Our friends and family thought we were crazy to spend our first 6 days as a married couple camping in tents on the side of a mountain. With the help of Traveler’s Joy, we did it anyway. From September 10-25, we had the trip of a lifetime.
