Finally, a love triangle to love: today is the second blogiversary of the blog and several new anniversary-trip reviews are in and
Valentine’s Day is almost here. In honor of these rather romantic
coincidences, here are some trip ideas from our wedded wanderers.
If they hadn’t written five sixth-anniversary journals, you might have thought CoupleTravels
were newlyweds after reading their member profile: “We are very much in
love and are very happy together.” To kick off year seven, they headed
south from their California home to explore the Pacific Coast from Cambria to Arroyo Grande (until their car broke down, anyway). A highlight was a visit to the luxurious Hearst Castle.
Not far from some other famous castles, NiceGinna and her husband chose London and lunch at the exclusive Gordon Ramsay for their special day. Her excellent review of their exquisite meal will have you jumping through hoops for a reservation, too.
Back in California, MikeInTown and his wife chose San Diego for an anniversary vacation, their first trip to the city. Dinner at The Prado
was topped off with complimentary Tahitian-vanilla-bean-cream-cheese
flan sprinkled with flower petals and topped with candles. Sweet!
John Hollinger’s anniversary story spans several years and the Hawaiian island of Kauai.
In 2004, he and his wife paid for a helicopter tour of the island, but
didn’t make it due to bad weather. So they made a decision (and we quote!):
“If we were still together, we vowed to return to Kauai for our
thirtieth wedding anniversary to take the helicopter tour we couldn’t
take in 2004.” Well, they were still together at the 30-year mark, and
they did return for an aerial tour worthy of goose bumps.
Perhaps in 30 years we’ll find notso62
and husband living it up in the Hugh Hefner Sky Villa at the Palms
Hotel; it’s where the newlywed says she might go, rather than the
Celebrity Suite she stayed in for her wedding, if she had $100,000 to
burn. Her Vegas nuptials
weren’t technically an anniversary, but you could take a cue from her
“I do” and renew your vows at the Chapel of the Bells, “the kitschy
Vegas wedding chapel of your dreams.”
