Turks & Caicos Babymoon

Turks & Caicos Babymoon

We're back from Turks and Caicos and I'm not kidding when I say it was the most relaxed we've been in almost four years!  Between COVID times and "family trips" [not vacations, as the saying goes], it's been difficult to sneak away just the two of us and really disconnect so this time together was much needed and quite special.

Honeymoon Part IV: Zanzibar, Tanzania

Honeymoon Part IV: Zanzibar, Tanzania

Zanzibar was the final stop on our honeymoon tour of Africa. We purposely chose to end in Zanzibar because we thought it would be nice to leave on a "relaxing" note after the "active" portion of our trip. Turns out, the Safari was just as relaxing as lounging by the pool all day. All the same, it made for a good excuse to visit and explore this beautiful island off the coast of Tanzania.

Santa Catalina Island, California

We knew we wanted to travel for our wedding anniversary but we had such a busy month of September that we never pulled the trigger on a trip. That left us scrambling the week before to find something that "felt special" (my sentiment) but practical (Kevin's sentiment). That's how we stumbled across Santa Catalina Island. It's super easy to access from Southern California but still has an island getaway feeling. My only regret is that we discovered Catalina so late in our SoCal years because I would have loved to have spent more time here!

Naples & Amalfi Coast, Italy

Naples & Amalfi Coast, Italy

Our trip to Italy in 2017 started in Naples which is a great starting point for the Amalfi coast. It's hard to believe that it's already been two years since we visited Italy but life has been an absolute whirlwind since our trip. Perhaps it's because because Kevin and I got engaged in Positano and we've been on a roller coaster ever since!

Babymoon on Harbour Island

Babymoon on Harbour Island

We chose The Bahamas for our Babymoon because it's one of the very few Zika free tropical destinations within a reasonable distance to the U.S. Having both been to The Bahamas before - think college spring break style circa early 2000's - we were a little unenthused about this destination at first since that wasn't the vibe we were going for on this particular trip. However, a little research led me to discover the Out Islands and we instantly fell IN LOVE with the pictures and description of Harbour Island.
