Speaking of traveling :)

I planned out on my hunnymoon today and I really hope this time it works out and we don't get screwed at the last minute!

We will be staying at a resort right next to the Great Barrier Reef.Paradise

Then spend New Year's in Sydney, Australia which I hear is amazing!Drinks

Then spend I think 9 days in New Zealand!Snail

I am sooo excited, I can't wait to tell H and I hope they approve it when he gets home. He has so much leave saved up like well over 40 days not including his post deployment leave. Big Smile

Re: Speaking of traveling :)

  • That sounds like quite a bit of fun!

    I hope it all works out smoothly and he does get the leave dates that he requests.

  • Go Blondebunny!  You have a great time!  It sounds like it will be a blast!
  • Pretty much the coolest vacation ever!  I've been drooling over some of the resorts in Australia out of my travel magazine.

  • That is awesome! I am trying to get something planned for when my H gets home which is coming up fast. We always do Vegas...and I do not want to go again, but the deals are so good right now...I am really having a hard time finding something else. We did Palm Springs last deployment...so that is out...maybe Napa or Santa Barbara. We have never been there.

    Isn't it amazing? It looks so unreal to me, I'm really excited. I want to live there and so does H, maybe it'll happen I just don't know though.

    Let me go find the website to the new resorts that the magazine had, holy crap.

    You should check out Catalina Island or Sedona, Arizona those are somewhat nearby places that are nice to go! That is if you guys haven't been before just a suggestion. I really want to go to Sedona and go hiking!

  • Seriously if money was no object I think this would be the first place I'd travel to!

    Never been to either place...I will add them to my city watch for good deals.

  • Try to plan for the leave block. Chances are, even though he has the leave, they won't let him go past the leave block times.

    I think that is what I am going to do, hopefully we find out when that is. I am assuming it will be december/january though cause that just makes more sense. But if you hear anything about leave can you let me know?

    As of right now, it's probably going to be during December, and will overlap Christmas leave. But you know how plans change and rumors go. So just play it by ear for a couple of months.

    They're out of the Travel & Leisure magazine and the first one especially is brand new.  The stuff they usually talk about in this magazine is usually destinations I won't really ever be able to afford.  That and all those resorts are on really remote islands that are nearly uninhabited.

    Yeah I definetly won't get my hopes up, I mean I am really excited but I prepare for the worst and if we can't go then it's not meant to be for now.
