Always nice to hear about successful partnerships. Both my kids had friends who envied them, my children, since they had both parents from the start.

My good friends rode from Vancouver to Peru on their honeymoon. I met them when they passed through my area.

Los Angeles to Washington DC on our honeymoon over 36 years ago. I posted about it to this thread Involving bicycles in your wedding

I can remember two distinct times on that trip when either one of us hit low a point, and were bouyed up by the other; me in Kansas and she in Ohio.
Congratulations, especially to all those 30 and over, but not as the UAW slogan "30 and out."
