We could not agree on a honeymoon destination. I really wanted to go to Key West in Florida, but Laura had her heart set on a honeymoon in Greece. I realize that tradition tells us that honeymoons were designed with the wife in mind, but…like I said, Ireally wanted to visit Key West. Besides, I didn’t think we could afford something as extravagant as a Greek honeymoon. As time began to run out, we had to make a decision. Neither of us would budge, so Laura finally suggested we hold a toe-wrestling tournament—whose ever toe reigned supreme would get to decide where we’d spend our honeymoon.
Going Toe to Toe
I had to stifle my laughter. My shoes are a size 12 while Laura’s are a 5 ½. No way could she beat me in toe-wrestling. Wrong! My chubby, cumbersome toe was no match for her slender, boney weapon and I quickly succummbed. So, we commenced to plan our vacation in Greece. Fortunately, Laura’s folks recommended that we log-on to their travel agent’s website and let them make the arrangements. They’d used this guy for years and think he pretty much walks on water. Well, they were right! Not only is this agency knowledgeable and friendly, but it’s also totally affordable! Plus, the website is easy to navigate; all the arrangements & reservations were made for our Greek honeymoon before I knew it!
The Island of Zante (Zakynthos)
We had an absolutely amazing time on the Ionian island of Zante. It’s a bit off the beaten path, but the perfect destination for a honeymoon in Greece. Clear azure waters, underwater caves to explore, sea turtles and the most gorgeous beaches in the world! Then, there were the mountain villages with stone houses, Venetian bell towers and lush forests. Bonus: we were in Zante during mid-August, which meant the Feast of the Virgin Mary. It was an unforgettable, magnificent festival with food, drink and dance.
Thank you travel experts, (and Laura’s toe) for making a honeymoon in Greece possible!
