It's a little funny, but I haven't even popped the question yet to my girlfriend, but it's a foregone conclusion to us and everyone who knows us that we're going to end up together. Even funnier is that a lot of wedding and honeymoon plans have been tossed around. Don't worry folks, I plan to ask the big one next month.
OK! On to the topic at hand. We're not swimming in money, and it's important to us that we're frugal, but we also recognize that once-in-a-lifetime trips only happen, well, once in a lifetime. I beat cancer about a year and a half ago and I know all too well how fleeting time is, and we both have Hawaii on our bucket list. What better way to cross that off the list by sharing our first big adventure together as newlyweds?
Did some research and we agree that Kauai speaks to us the best. We're not big on city life, we prefer the quieter countryside rife with natural beauty and Kauai apparently has that in spades. I've already been looking on vrbo and found some great prices for what seems to be great places (with a grill, of course).
Can you suggest a great off-peak travel time to Kauai? I was thinking possibly October (not this year, in 2015), but the date is very flexible.
Some great ways to save money? Airfare, alas, is the one thing we can't control and realize it costs a near fortune. If I'm lucky, my folks will help pay as a present.
