I’m going to be a bit egocentric right here, however I feel for good cause!

I lately received married (yay) and we wished to attend a bit to plan our honeymoon; we didn’t wish to be planning a marriage AND a visit on the identical time. My new bride and I each wish to go some place we’ve by no means been earlier than. Whereas we predict we’re set on a vacation spot, there are such a lot of enjoyable choices to get there and various things to do; I believed I’d attempt to see if any of you had some swell concepts.

I’ve by no means performed one thing like this earlier than, so I’m unsure if it’ll work. However it could’t harm! My concept is to offer you all a few of my ideas up to now, and see what you assume. Possibly I’ll get zero feedback and be unhappy, or possibly I might be overwhelmed and no higher off, however I hope to get a gem or two out of this little experiment! Right here we go:

The Large Image

We plan to spend nearly all of our time in Santorini, Greece. It’s place she has wished to go to and neither of us have been.
We’re not followers of locations with one million vacationers.
Being native Washingtonians, we don’t like sizzling climate.
Capturing for late April to mid Could, however would do late September to early October if wanted. 
Desirous to do about 10 days complete, however would broaden as much as 14, if it made sense.
Being that is our honeymoon, we’re cool spending a bit extra on the place we keep, the meals, and so forth, if it has a superb ROIOF (return of funding on enjoyable — acronyms are enjoyable!). Clearly we now have an affordable funds, however I don’t need it to carry again any concepts.

Attending to/from Santorini

We might be departing out of Seattle. Until it’s a sufficiently big distinction, we don’t actually wish to go to YVR or PDX. (Editor’s notice: what about PAE?)
Getting there, I’m taking a look at getting inventive. Possibly do one thing like flying into London, Paris, or Rome and take trains/ferries right down to Athens for the ultimate ferry to Santorini? Possibly cease for an evening a few times on the best way down? Been studying up on choices, however marvel if it might be extra of a ache than it’s value. 
Coming again, I feel we might simply wish to fly as fast and low cost as attainable, however no more than 18 hours for a complete journey. Seems to be like some airways like Condor and Norwegian have choices, however not day-after-day, so must play with dates. 
Even after 10 years of penning this website, I’m nonetheless a much noob. As I write this I’ve 35,000 Alaska miles. After a primary search, that may get me a one-way ticket to LHR or FRA. Not a requirement to make use of, however that will save a couple of $. 
Since we now have our miles with Alaska, it might be good to earn miles with them on tickets that we pay for. 
My superior spouse is sport for me doing a narrative or two out of our adventures, so if there’s a distinctive airline/plane sort or if I can pitch an airline for a narrative/expertise, that may be a bonus. That mentioned, she wouldn’t be sport taking 36hrs, flying the mistaken approach throughout the globe to attempt a bunch of various airways.

Whereas we’re in Santorini

I find yourself spending extra time determining the right way to get to/from a spot, the flights, the boats, the trains, and so forth., and typically I overlook about planning what to do as soon as I arrive. Guessing possibly a few of you may relate? I usually wish to have some concepts of issues to do, however not all the times scheduled.
As soon as there, I’m taking a look at most likely renting a automobile. Seems to be like there are taxis and buses, however not the most effective, plus we at all times have enjoyable adventures with driving round on our journeys.
Taking a look at issues like boat or jetski tour, the recent springs, taking the automobile to discover the island, enjoyable.
Wish to keep on the Caldera facet. Guessing a couple of nights in one of many good resorts with wonderful views, and some in a extra moderately priced resort. Simply relies upon.

Okay, so this ended up being longer than I anticipated, however there are a number of transferring items. Please depart your recommendations/questions within the feedback and let’s see what occurs. Thanks!
