It'll still be a couple of weeks before our pro-pics come back, so in the meantime do you guys want to take a peek into our honeymoon trip? Honeymoon recaps are always some of my favorite posts. I love seeing all of the cool places that the bees head to for their honeymoons and planning future trips in my head. It's like travel window shopping!
Way back in February, Mr. Rucksack and I grew very tired of the snowy scene outside our windows. After a bottle of wine on Valentine's Day we snagged up a 7 Day Adriatic Cruise through Gilt's travel site, Jetsetter. It was a total whim and a crap shoot since we hadn't found many reviews, but man are we glad we went with our guts!
On August 16th, Mr. Rucksack and I traveled to Corfu, Greece to set sail on a 7 day cruise through Greece, Croatia, Montenegro and Albania. But first we had a lot of flying to do! Armed with just a carry-on duffel bag and a beach bag (I'm still impressed with myself!) we flew over the Atlantic ocean landing in Dusseldorf and Zurich before finally making it to Corfu.
|If 2 years ago you had told me I would be able to travel to Europe for 12 days with just a duffel bag, I would have laughed right in your face.|

|These were our accommodations for 7 days. It was tight, but we were cool with it. We still like each other after all these 3 weeks of marriage! ;-)|
Of course even though it was great, the ship wasn't the main attraction at all. Next up, I'll walk you through our Adriatic Itinerary including stops in Saranda, Albania; Kotor, Montenegro; Dubrovnik, Croatia; Korcula, Croatia; Bar, Montenegro; and Paxos, Greece!
