My Big Fat Greek Honeymoon

This weekend fiancé and I spent the past two days focusing on one thing and one thing only:

Our Honeymoon!

For our honeymoon we have always wanted to go to Greece. It is a place neither of us have been to and it has something for both of us. Fiancé is all about the history of the place and I am all about the beaches – For us, it’s a perfect combination!

We spent the entire weekend going through tons of brochures and different options for the honeymoon. It was a ton of fun. We went through a bunch of different ports of calls that we are interested in and spent a lot of time talking out the different things we want to do on our trip.

To cap off our weekend we decided to have a Greek themed dinner!

We started off by visiting the Wine & Spirits store and finding some wine from Greece – Not as east as it sounds, there were only 2 options to choose from, but at least there was an option!

We ended up with this lovely bottle of dry red wine – We have no idea anything else about it because we can’t read the bottle, but we know its from Greece!

We also decided to do take-out from a local Greek restaurant around our area that I had been eyeing up. I figured this was the perfect time to try it out.

We started out with a classic Greek salad to share.

Then we got some tzatziki sauce with some pita bread as an appetizer. It was so amazing with the wine!

Fiancé got the lamb and I got the chicken souvlaki – It was pretty good, but it was a lot of food!

While we had dinner we enjoyed watching a travel DVD on Greece that Fiancé got for his birthday from his parents.

Any Rick Steve’s Fans out there?

We totally made a TV dinner out of our meal. Eating a lovely themed meal about the place you plan to Honeymoon in is AWESOME!

Did I mention watching a Greece travel DVD made me even more excited to go there. Is it possible to get TO EXCITED for your honeymoon?

Watching a Greece movie while eating Greek food and enjoying Greek wine is the only way to shop for honeymoon destinations.

Another present from the in-laws is this awesome coffee table book on the wonders of Greece. I took some pictures of some of the magical wonders of Greece from this book -
