Remember Me?

I wish I had a juicy excuse for being gone almost an entire week, like, I won a trip to Hawaii and just left all my responsibilities behind, or the boy and I decided to elope and left our laptops and cell phones at home only to be contacted by carrier pigeon.

Unfortunately neither of these scenarios happened. I just got a terrible cold that is still lingering, and I was in bed, partially drugged up from Nyquil/Sudafed and watching Biggest Loser re-runs. I'm slowly getting back in the swing of things, and coughing less. I missed my blog.

In wedding news, the boy and I are spending hours researching and debating what to do about our honeymoon. Cake toppers, honeymoons, we're really good at being picky. Or as my mother said (my loose translation from Cantonese,) "so fussy!" The basic gist of our debate is that he wants a jam-packed site-seeing trip in a city. I would like something more relaxed, with little time spent in a city. He doesn't mind expensive destinations, I would like to go somewhere less expensive, and so would our bank account. His latest idea is Tokyo/Kyoto which is not budget-friendly and would take some time to save money for. I'm torn since it's so expensive, but I would like to visit the Studio Ghibli Museum and eat authentic food. Plus, neither one of us have been to Japan.

Where will we end up? I don't know, but wherever it is I hope we don't go broke getting there.

Mo, missed you!

Ok I know I'm enabling, but Tokyo doesn't have to be that expensive. Well we stayed in a more basic place than you'll probably be staying, but the food was pretty well priced (good sushi and ramen don't have to be super expensive). You could also go to other cities super easily with the shinkansen (bullet train).

Good luck picking your honeymoon spot!

@Chic 'n Cheap: It's good to hear you say that! I do love sushi and ramen, Japanese food is probably right behind spaghetti carbonara. If we pick Japan, I might be picking your brain some more. =)

Good luck in your searching, where to go on honeymoon is no easy decision! Tokyo does sound pretty exciting although I can understand your desire for a bit of relaxation.

I was wondering where you were! Hope you're feeling much better.

Japan please!!! So I can live through you. I've always, always wanted to go.

Wow Japan would be amazing - and the food is to die for!

I would die to go to Japan! I'm a pitiful Japanese American person who's never been to the motherland. It is crazy expensive...best of luck with your honeymoon decisions!

Hope you are feeling better :)

Good to see you're back! As a honeymoon tip - have you checked out HomeAway.com? I used it all the time when I travel. You can find interesting places to stay that are not as pricey as hotels, esp. in Tokyo!

I LOVE Kyoto! One of my all time favorite places. And if you do go to Tokyo, ya gotta check out Harajuku Station!
