I can’t possibly keep this a secret any longer! We have managed to get ourselves a boat in Greece, leave from work and purchased flights to Athens so we can sail around the Ionian Sea for just over 3 months!! Leaving one month after we get married, this makes for a perfect honeymoon.
The boat: we will be on an Edel 35 sailing catamaran
The next 8 weeks are going to be epically busy. Before our wedding, we have Ryan’s bucks (bachelor/stag) weekend, my hens weekend and some sort of Easter adventure. Then the family from overseas starts rolling in for the big celebration.
One week after the wedding Ryan goes overseas for work for two weeks. During that time, I have to move us out of our house. All whilst working full time and fitting in birthdays along the way.
A week after Ryan returns, we jet away to enjoy these kinds of things:
We also look forward to having some of our friends and family on board. It looks like Adam and Bek from two years, seven kilos might stop by for a visit during their wonderful adventure.
Maybe Bailey Boat Cat and his humans will be interested in sailing over from Italy, now that he is a full time live aboard kitty.
This is beyond exciting!
For those of you wondering about the results of our poll, this is what you guessed:
38% of you guessed we were going to the Mediterranean (well done, and I think influenced by those who already knew the answer)
25% guessed the South Pacific
25% guessed the Caribbean
13% guessed the North Pacific
All would be amazing, but we are very happy with our current choice
57% of you guessed we are going for 3 weeks
43% guessed 3 months
All of you know us well enough to know we wouldn’t just go for one week, and that twelve months is not feasible for us at this time (maybe one day **sigh**).
13% guessed we were sailing
88% guessed all of the above (being sailing, diving, surfing and relaxing on a beach drinking cocktails)
That doesn’t add up (what’s up with that polldaddy?). Anyway, this was a bit of a tricky one. Technically we will be doing some diving, and probably drinking cocktails at some point! I should have made you guess what our predominant activity will be.
Thanks for your votes. It was fun seeing the results.
