Most people in this city live with the drudgery of the 9-5 or worse. Having far flung escapist fantasies as a result isn't unheard of, it's the following through that is not so common. Worrying about resentment from co-workers, or worse, talking about my personal life at work when I should be TCB, I didn't send out a memo or make it wide spread news, but sure enough I would be asked questions here and there... outside the water cooler, while on hold for a conference call, by random co-workers walking by, and then again this morning before hot-sheet. Though this morning's encounter was a little more in-depth as it went beyond the "I heard you were...". For the first time, someone actually asked me not just when and how long, but what the flight situation was. It never occurred to me that there are people that never heard of Around the World tickets, and that they generally cost around $3,000. Judging by their reaction, I would guess there's at least four people googling it right now, I wonder if I could get a referral commission?
So yes, we really are taking a 6 month honeymoon around the world. We have our one way ticket to Berlin, but that's it. We're committed, but didn't want to "be committed". Planning a wedding AND a trip like this at the same time would have drove us insane. Stay tuned as our wedding blog becomes our travel blog :)

Anyone living in this city knows that the MTA (aka the subway) is very unpredictable. A couple weeks ago we realized there is no more B train service on the weekends to the 7th ave subway stop by our house. Now there is planned construction work going on to the Q train and service to 7th ave is also suspended on the weekends. So, if you are taking public transit to the ceremony please take the 2 or 3 train to Grand Army Plaza. Walk down St. Johns Pl. across 8th ave and continue down 1 block to 7th Ave, make a left, and the conservatory is 1 block down on the right.
