Matt and I technically didn't go on a honeymoon right after our wedding (unless you count packing and hauling your crap across the country and buying a house two days after your wedding a honeymoon).
However, we did take our First Annual Adventure (as an officially married couple) the following year to Paris and Greece (for a sailing trip with 7 other people). Now we have two more adventures on the horizon:
- Big Bend National Park and Marfa for spring break
- British Columbia for two weeks in the summer
I'm not exactly sure that we could make it from Houston to Alaska in a month (I have visions of driving home via the California coast), but a girl can dream, can't she?
I feel the itch to travel far and wide before we expand our family (our dog and chickens already constitute a family, for sure). Two of my friends saved up a bunch of money and then traveled the world for seven months before getting pregnant. I don't think it would make financial sense for us to do such a long, income-free trip, but a month of traveling would be really cool. Then again, maybe we could postpone the baby plans and add more trips to the docket.
As much as I want to make a "Things to Do Before We Get Pregnant" List, I also want to make a "Things to Keep Doing After We Have a Baby." Most definitely.
