Mehmed II's Cannon and Gunpowder

Mehmed II's Cannon and Gunpowder

The Walls of Theodosius are the greatest and most successful city walls ever constructed, defeated only by the inevitability of gunpowder's spread to the West. A Hungarian named Orban sought to forge a great bronze cannon for Constantine XI in 1452, but was turned down due to its great cost. Orban forged the cannon for Ottoman ruler Mehmed II instead, who breached the Theodosian Walls a year later and conquered Byzantium in 1453.

What's a honeymoon registry?

Wanderable is a new and unique honeymoon registry that allows wedding guests to gift meaningful and memorable experiences to a newlywed couple.

Similar to a traditional registry where the couple registers for gifts, couples will create a Wanderable registry website where guests can choose a thoughtful experience to give based on their unique relationship with the couple.

Why Wanderable?

Couples who choose Wanderable want a beautiful experience to help begin their journey together.

A marriage is about the experience of life and the journey you are just beginning together. Wanderable believes that this is at the core of marriage. And the only way to help a couple celebrate this is to provide a meaningful wedding gift of one of the first experiences of this journey together.

Wanderable helps couples get started on their journey by providing a unique way for guests to give more than a thing, but a gift of a new life experience the couple can share.

We believe that experiences can be made into memorable gifts, that feel as real as receiving any other gift you can unwrap.
