We may have got married in Dec' 05, but at the time we had family here and had just bought and moved into our new home. Since then what with renovations, UK guests, both being self-employed, my health being dodgy for the past year etc......well we never got around to a honeymoon - until now :-)
We will head to Colorado the day before my birthday and spend a week there; it will be about a 7 hour drive out through the OK Panhandle, New Mexico and into Colorado. We are staying just outside the city in a modern hotel with an outdoor pool,a view of Pikes Peak and a Sushi bar nearby!
For the Brit's that don't know the area, it's a very popular vacation spot here and has some wonderful places to visit including Pikes Peak (the edge of the Rockies), The Garden of the Gods, The Royal Gorge Bridge & Park, Seven Falls, Boulder closeby and Colorado Springs itself for 'SHOPPING', eating and entertainment.
This is the kind of vacation spot that we both love. Lots of amazingly stunning natural scenery and outdoors things to do, combined with a big city for entertainment and retail therapy! We are both really looking forward to it and the Hubster has gone to bed with the parting shot of "I'll leave you to drool over it all" !
So if you have been there, have tips on where to eat, essential things to do/see, or you just want to tell me how wonderful it is there - then please comment for me.
