Honeymoon Countdown: 4 Days to Go!
Just a few short days until our honeymoon! Here’s a brief overview of where we’re headed and how we’re getting there:
Our 24,606 mile trip will take us to 10 countries (including connections) over 16 days:
Part 1 -New York
We’ll fly from Charleston-JFK to New York-JFK on Delta…
…and spend 1 night in the city to get our fill of the Christmas spirit.
Part 2 – Bali, Indonesia
Our award ticket starts in New York as we fly out of New York-LGA and, appx 33 hours later, land in Denpasar, Indonesia-DPS, better know as Bali.
The trek begins with an Air Canada flight from New York-LGA to Montreal, Canada-YUL. We’ll then connect to Air Canada’s Montreal-YUL to Paris-CDG.
After a short hop from Paris-CDG to Frankfurt-FRA on Lufthansa, we’ll be ready for the longest flight of the trip: 10 hrs 10 mins from Frankfurt-FRA to Bangkok-BKK on Thai Airways’ Airbus A380 in “Royal Silk” class:
I’m sure the A380 will leave us spoiled for our next flight…on Thai Airways’ from Bangkok-BKK to Denpasar (Bali), Indonesia-DPS.
We’ll stay the next 3 nights exploring Bali, Indonesia.
Part 3 – Ubud, Indonesia
Once we’ve had our fill of the beach, we’ll take a 1 hour drive into the mountains of Indonesia and spend 2 nights in Ubud.
Part 4 – Jakarta
Next up: the bustling metropolis of Jakarta, 10 million people strong. We’ll say goodbye to Bali and hop a 1 hr 45 min flight from Denpasar-DPS to Jakarta-CGK.
Part 5 – A short stop in Singapore
We’ve got a pretty short 1.5 hr flight from Jakarta-CGK to Singapore-SIN on Singapore Air.
Our 8 hr layover, while it is pretty short, should give us at least a few hours to check out Singapore:
Part 6 – The Maldives
We’re still finalizing where we’re staying, but 2 things are sure: SEA PLANE and OVER THE WATER BUNGALOW!
Part 7 – Montreal
After a few nights in the Maldives, we start the trek back to North America.
The first leg will take us from Male, Maldives-MLE to Istanbul-IST on Turkish Air.
We’ll connect on another Turkish Air flight from Istanbul-IST to Zurich-ZRH and then pick up our second-to-last flight on SWISS from Zurich-ZRH to Montreal-YUL.
We end the journey with a one night stay in Montreal.
