exact idea of a honeymoon).
Then what happened? Qantas went and had a huge airfare sale. We're talking the cheapest it's been in ten years. And where do they fly? Australia and New Zealand. For about $100 more than flying to Mexico we could get to Auckland and spend almost two weeks on the north and south islands of Kiwi-land.
I bet you can guess what we did. That's right. We bit the bullet. Two tickets to Auckland, New Zealand please. (As if the images didn't tip you off). The flight leaves from Los Angeles two nights after the wedding. To save money on four more plane tickets, we'll drive from Colorado to LA after the wedding. With two days to go 14 hours, we might even make some fun stops along the way like Vegas (where Mr. CB's never been) or Moab (the mountain bike capitol of the US).
I feel like New Zealand will be the perfect blend of what we were going for--a little adventure, somewhere we both haven't been, my surfing, Mr. CB's mountains, and, hopefully, a lot of pampering, good food, and local wine.
