Our Modern Latina Bride Says Goodbye

Our long-awaited honeymoon adventure to Thailand finally happened!

Although the 20-plus hour airplane flight was a bit grueling, once Hector and I arrived it was totally worth it! We spent a few days in Bangkok at the Metropolitan Hotel just taking in all the sights. We had an especially amazing view when we had dinner at Vertigo at the Banyan Tree hotel. It’s set on the rooftop of a very large high-rise overlooking the city. Next we flew to Phuket, the beach area, and stayed at Amanpuri, the MOST magnificent resort either Hector and I have experienced (and we have traveled quite a bit). The people around the beach and within the resort are some of the most accommodating and welcoming people I have ever met. They really go above and beyond to make your stay memorable and they definitely succeeded.

Here are a few photos recapping our time in Asia. It’s been so much fun sharing this journey with you! Enjoy the photos and wish me luck in my life as a married women!
