Hill of Crosses in Siauliai, Lithuania 2005.
Underpass in Frankfurt, Germany on our way to see Sigur Ros for the first time, 2005. 

I have been looking at a lot of my old photos over the last few days, reminiscing about previous trips. It is making me look forward a lot to this new one we are about to embark on (well, at the end of August). 

We have made some decisions - we are going to get married in the US. We aren't sure where though, many ideas have been tossed around: Big Sur? San Antonio? Portland (Oregon)? Portland (Maine)? Savannah? I think realistically that the place will be in the State that has the easiest requirements to meet to obtain a marriage licence.  

We are planning on about 10 weeks away. That should give us enough time to see a bit of the States, get married, get to Toronto to visit everyone, go to Cuba for a honeymoon within a honeymoon, then spend some time in New Zealand and Canberra before heading back to Melbourne. We will end up having celebrations of varying sizes and forms in five locations in all: the undetermined spot in the US, Toronto, Tauranga, Canberra and Melbourne. A veritable marriage whirlwind. 

Luckily enough we will also be able to coordinate our schedule with the touring schedule of a number of different bands. We have already bought our tickets to this in the Catskills. We will be staying at the Best Western Monticello with our pals C & C from Toronto. 

T and I are now going to watch this

I've also just started blogging after being inspired/made very jealous by all the other potluckers' fantastic blogs - hope it's ok of I add yours to my blogroll (I always love searching through other people's!)

Five celebrations sound about right, don'cha think? :)
