Bride Leslie: Honeymooning!

Sharing a honeymoon recap is even harder than sharing our wedding-day recap! The wedding was one day full of craziness, excitement, emotion and lots of love — the honeymoon was two weeks full of all that!

For our honeymoon, we decided to go to Greece and Turkey. Charles wanted history, and I wanted beaches — so these locations were perfect for us! The first half of the trip we spent in Istanbul, Turkey and Athens, Greece enjoying the history of both locations. The first week we saw various mosques, went to the Grand Bazaar and enjoyed some time at the Acropolis. It was a week full of history, and we enjoyed every minute of it.

The second half of the trip was for me! We enjoyed a cruise through the Greek Isles — stopping at Mykonos, Rhodes, Crete, Ephesus, Patmos, and ending our trip with four days in Santorini. We saw so many amazing sights and enjoyed soaking in the sun! It was perfect to have the second half of our trip be all about relaxing and unwinding — we needed that after all the wedding planning stress we had been under the past few months.

I know our trip wasn’t a standard “honeymoon,” by some standards, but it was perfect for us. We had a blast, saw some amazing sights and spent our first weeks together as husband and wife.

Life is good.
