Ever since we got engaged all Jamie talks about is our honeymoon. Before we had even set a date for the wedding he had decided we were going on a skiing trip through the Alps. He is big on his adventure trips. A week later it changed to a hiking expedition through the Canadian Rockies. While I have been choosing flowers and crafting the guest list, he has been busy planning everything from a two month Mongolian trek to an Australian surf tour. The honeymoon is three months away and we are yet to actually book anything. I have been leaving hints that my preference is the Aussie surf trip, it’s probably the only activity that we are truly equal at . I have sent him links to some lovely Lorne luxury hotels. The idea is we would spend two weeks surfing our way around the great ocean road, and then fly up to Queensland and surf our way down the East coast.
I am pretty sure he has settled on this, although when I went to try and book flights he wouldn’t let me because he was in talks with a 4×4 silk road adventure operator. I took the plunge. I booked Aussie flights and told him we are done. As a surprise I am going to buy us new surfboards and top of the range wet suits. I know he’s had his eye on the new rip curl line. I’ve booked excellent accommodation in Lorne, super luxurious, right by the ocean and not too expensive either. We are going to stay in a mixture of super luxury and slightly more budget, roughing-it style places. I am also going to book us a few days in a camper-van along the great ocean road. Essentially it has panned out that I am not only planning the wedding in its entirety but now, because Jamie is basically 14 years-old, I am also planning the honeymoon in Lorne. He has found it exceptionally hard to get on board the planning train.
