We booked it together.
We got married on 29 May 2004, and went on honeymoon on 18 August. We did it because my cousin was getting married in Las Vegas – so we thought we’d time it right so that we could go to her wedding. It was a great idea as it gave us something to look forward to!
Las Vegas and San Francisco.
We spent six nights in each location.
£2500 for the flights, hotels and transfers.
We spent the holiday touring the cities.
Well, Las Vegas – where do I start? It is the most amazing place I have ever visited! There’s just so much to do! In San Francisco we went to Alcatraz which was amazing and well worth the visit. We also went to Pier 39 and travelled around on trams which was an experience in itself!
In Vegas there is no typical day – you just take whatever it throws at you! The funny thing was – as we were there for my cousin’s wedding – so were my entire family. It’s very strange to be on honeymoon and for your mum to phone at 9am to tell you to get up! Looking back, it was quite funny.
Brilliantly. We spent some time with my family and some time alone.
If you want to know anything – please feel free to e-mail me! And if you’re going to Vegas and you can afford it, stay at the Venetian and go on a gondola!!
