My fiance and I are high school sweethearts and have been dating for seven years (will be eight by the time we get married in August next year!). We are both college graduates, in our early - mid 20's and have already started settling into jobs, and that normal 9-5 life. I don't feel like I want to settle into that yet, and I am toying with the idea of instead of leaving for a honeymoon after the wedding, extending the "honeymoon" to a year and traveling around the world (or at least part of it, I'm ambitious but not that ambitious). What do you think of this? Has anybody done something similar? I just feel I need to take the "gap year" I never had!
It's a little bit fantastical, but why not.
