Fiji or Hawaii

Island Paradise

My best friend is planning a romantic getaway with her fiance, to scope out the right destination for a beautiful island wedding.

First things first. I am RIDICULOUSLY jealous. Who doesn't want to get married on the beach? Blue seas, flowing gowns, palm trees... Sigh. First I have to find me a mister right then I can even begin to think about it...

Anyway back to the matter at hand. She has invited me to join them with some friends for a little partying. They only want to scout for the right place, rather than having a purely romantic weekend for the two of them. (No third wheeling, I am assured). She needs the girls to decide on this and hubby only gets second opinion apparently haha.

So it will be lots of fun. She is deciding between Fiji and Hawaii. Both are excellent of course. Fiji is a little less passe whilst Hawaii is the dream. And for a reason.

I haven't decided though if I am going, because when she decides, I will have to pay for a flight there and probably shared accommodation but it won't be a time to stinge on budget travels so it is tricky deciding whether to do this pre-trip. Plus going to a place for the first time is the best, I would love to save it for the wedding.

Also I have plans to travel to Europe. A short trip probably, just what I can afford by the middle of the year without blowing everything at once. I need to save for my bestie, and regular outings and this trip to Europe. I have decided at least that it will be a backpacking trip, with hostels and no tours. I just need to search for cheap flights and see what my options are in terms of countries in Europe I can afford.

At the moment, the options are France, Belgium and Austria.
