Victoria and Matt
Dear Friends & Family, We are so honored to have such wonderful people in our lives. You have supported us in many, many ways and we are grateful. We look forward to celebrating with you really soon! We initially set up this honeymoon registry to help us explore New Zealand together, as we had planned to travel there (and only there) on our honeymoon for two weeks. Traveling is one of our shared passions as most of you know. Well, this shared globe-trotting passion of ours has now led us to extend our honeymoon just a *touch* longer. We changed our flights from round trip to one way, and now plan to extend our journey for a few months to allow us to see more of the world. Strike while the iron is hot as they say! Carpe diem! (You get the picture.) While the exact plan is not so neatly laid out as I (not Matt) would hope it to be, we do plan on camper-vanning in New Zealand for the first three weeks, getting lost on a South Pacific island, chumming it up in Australia, experience the fusion of old and new in Southeast Asia, walking the coastal towns of South Africa, doing the tango in Buenos Aires, and toasting to a New Year in Rio de Janeiro. We look forward to quite a few new experiences while on this journey. Many of these wonderful ideas came from our friends and family, so we thank you for that! This honeymoon registry allows you to give these experiences as gifts which we'll always remember and cherish. And you can be sure we'll post photos of our travels just as soon as we get back, if not earlier. Thank you so much for visiting and, most importantly, thank you for sharing this great occasion with us. We're looking forward to celebrating with you soon! Love, Victoria & MattRio, Brazil New Zealand Auckland, New Zealand Buenos Aires, Argentina South Africa
We'll stay in Auckland for a few nights to get our bearings and see what this large North Island city has to offer.
We'll take our camper van on a scenic drive through some of New Zealand's beautiful parks, to see some wildlife, sea life and the southern beaches, stopping to check out some of the local dining es...
We can't wait to visit the New Zealand vineyards and try all their wine varieties. Maybe we can find a bottle that we both agree on! (Don't count on it!)
New Zealand has quite a few hot springs to visit. We can't wait to soak it up!
Ok, so maybe we will need a back specialist after sitting in these little chairs for too long, but we definitely do not want to miss drinking a few glasses of "Bai Hoi" with the locals in Hanoi, an...
We've heard such wonderful things about the tropical island paradise of the Great Barrier Reef. We'll snorkel and take underwater snapshots of the coral and sea life up close.
We've read about some fun and affordable hostels in Fiji, but admittedly, plan to enjoy ourselves for two nights "honeymoon" style (after weeks of camper-vanning!) on this beautiful island in the ...
This region has such a great diversity in plant, bird and mammal species which inhabit areas as diverse as densely wooded river banks and seemingly endless savannah landscapes. I'm packing our bin...
It takes two to tango, and now that we've got each other, we're going to see how that old adage stacks up. Help us to not embarrass ourselves as we kick up our heels in the capital of Argentina.
We are ringing in the new year as a married couple, and hope to be sharing it with new friends and according to new customs, wherever we may be - which we think might be Rio de Janeiro! If you can...
