Yes, we really are taking a 6 month honeymoon around the world
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 :)
