Our Honeymoon in Turks and Caicos

There is nothing quite like a relaxing vacation with sun, sand and miles of clear blue ocean.  And when it comes to honeymooning those were three requirements that were absolutely imperative.  And oh boy did Turks & Caicos deliver.  SUCH a beautiful island - very relaxing, with great people and fantastic vistas (I feel like the travel agent from the Carmen Santiago computer game everytime I say vistas... anyone?... no?)

Chris & I finally decided to stay at the Ocean Club West Resort - which was a perfect fit for us.  I loved that our suite looked out over the ocean (and it was all netted in - which means NO BUGS!!! That was what sold me on the place) and the food was delicious.  The month of May, it turns out, is a slower month for most vacation spots (they peak from October to February) so Chris and I felt like we were the only ones there!

We also went horseback riding in the ocean, dined privately on the beach for a special romantic dinner and went stand up paddleboarding!  Walking along the shore we also witnessed a few wedding receptions going on - how much fun would that be? :)

If you want to see more from our honeymoon, we also vlogged throughout!  I'm so happy we went and I miss it every day. A big hug to our sweet-as-honey travel agent Marion Primeau (she's a honeymoon specialist so we obviously needed her help :P) - her and Chris worked super hard to find somewhere for us to go and I'm so happy with everything!!! :D

Question for you:  What is your favourite vacation spot and why? :) <3

Gorgeous! I've always wanted to visit Turks and Caicos :) The last spot the husband and I vacationed to was Oahu, Hawaii. We stayed in Honolulu (just outside of Waikiki) and loved the combination of urban life and all the beautiful beaches on the island of Oahu. We completely fell in love with Hawaii!

Did you do the private beachfront dinner at OCW or elsewhere? We're going to T&C in a few months as a belated anniversary trip and that looks like it would be fun. Thanks for the video, we really enjoyed watching it and it's how I discovered your blog. We're doing Provo Ponies too and it looks like so much fun!
