Off to San Diego

Starting tomorrow, I will be traveling with my husband to San Diego, CA. We will be there for a week, attending the Alternatives 2016 conference. This is organized by and for mental health consumers/survivors.

During our free time, we plan on visiting some landmarks and restaurants. I will be taking pictures and trying to make use out of Instagram Stories and Snapchat, while also trying to blog. If I can’t, I will do my best to compile a list of places we went to that we can recommend.

If you would like to follow me on any of those platforms, here’s the information:

Honeymoon: New York

As Juan and I have been planning our wedding, we’ve had several destinations as options for our honeymoon. We considered several places, including Spain which was our main choice for a while. We begun looking at ticket fares, hotel options, etc. and found that anything outside of the United States would be too expensive for us. Tickets for Spain were $1,200 per person. We’re usually very frugal when it comes to money so even though it’s our honeymoon we couldn’t justify such an exorbitant expense.

One of our other options was New York. Like I’ve said in many posts here, since I was little, I’ve always dreamed of visiting New York. We looked at prices and they’re pretty decent so we already made contact with a travel agent so we can get a good deal on everything (ticket fares, hotel, etc). I am definitely excited to visit NY for my honeymoon. We always say, as long as there’s good food and places to see, I know we’ll have a blast.

We already plan on purchasing the NY City Pass, which will give us an amazing deal on several must-see places (especially the museums). We’ll probably spend 12-13 days in New York so I want to make the best of it. We also want to take advantage of their public transportation system to get around.

I am super excited for this trip! A honeymoon in New York sounds so perfect to me. I need to start purchasing winter clothing, I’ve never experienced real cold before so I need to be prepared.

If anyone has been to New York and has any suggestions, restaurant/place recommendations, etc.. Please let me know! I would greatly appreciate any help.
