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.
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.
