Em. Yep, Doug and I went the cheesy route and spent part of our honeymoon in Niagara Falls (the Canadian side with all the casinos and tourists). Actually last week was the Toronto International Film Festival, and, since Doug is a film critic as well, we thought we’d go there after the wedding and tag on a trip to the falls, so it’s not really as cliche as one might think. (If you are into art or foreign films, check out Doug’s blog, Film Journey…)
For those of you all who guessed the Caribbean or Hawaii, we would’ve loved to have gone but couldn’t really afford it. Greece is a great guess and it would’ve been nice, but what with fires and the heat and such it might be a little too reminiscent of home (plus navigating Athens public transportation with luggage might have put quite a strain on our newlywed bliss…). Southeast Asia, Bali in particular was actually discussed as an option, but I’ve been there so many times and find Balinese men really attractive — not really the best thing on a honeymoon.
So, we settled for the land of my birth (although I was born in Montreal).
Thanks to all of you who guessed, and Em you should be getting something cool in the mail pretty soon!
