Getting Married in different Cultures/Countries

Finally in a dark ally way he proposed! How romantic isn't it? We want to go on this trip to get married in different cultures and live this one of a kind experience with the person I  want to share my  life with. We like taking pictures and traveling, so why not doing it all together while getting married?

It is worth contributing to this trip because we will be sharing our story with you plus who does not want to be part of this amazing/ real life love story?  What makes this trip unique is the idea itself of exploring new cultures, talking to different people, growing as a person  next to the person you love and want to have a family with... I know cheesy right? BUT TRUE.. It will be an out of this world kind of thing and it might be possible to accomplish it with YOUR HELP!  It will mean the world to me if you help me and my fiance to travel and explore the world together. Even if you help us with $1.00 it can still help us and make you part of our story! 

Who doesn't like traveling? Would you agree that the money spent in traveling it is the best investment? Why would you invest in our travels? Because this IDEA is amazing and I know you want to be part of it.  You want to see where this starts and how the trips ends. You want to share this special moment with us. Traveling is great, traveling with the person you love amazing but getting married while traveling is priceless and that is exactly why you want to invest in us, in our trip! 

 

Background & Experience

Cristi:

I have traveled since I am little and each one of my trips has helped me grow up a little bit more. It make me understand other people point of views, religion, cultures and languages. I speak Spanish, English, a little of Arabic and Italian. Traveling is my passion as well as people, religion and cultures. It makes me realize how lucky I am to be alive, to be part of this amazing and diverse world. I have been to 23 different countries and I still have 12 more that I need to go to! They are: India, Indonesia, Nepal, Thailand, Singapoure, Vietnam, South Africa, Japan, Australia, Maldives, Samoa, and  New Zeland.

Stevie:

I grew up traveling with my family. Before graduating high school I visited 49 out of the 50 United States(let's just say getting to Alsaska is not the easiest from the East Coast). Unlike Crisi, I have only had the oppertunity to visit 5 countries, so this oppertunity is extremely exciting for me. I love backpacking, hiking, and being able to experience new places and cultures. There is no other person but Cristi that I could see myself traveling the world with.

Other ways to contribute

We know that not all of you are able to make a financial donation, there are other ways you can help!

  • First of all, a trip this long requires some heavy duty travel gear. If you have any suggestions on backpacks, packing lists, sleeping items, or any item donations regarding travel, are gladly welcome.
  • Secondly,  if any of you have traveled to these countries before or know someone who has. Any helpful guidance, connections or suggestions are appreciated.

And of course this project will not be possible without people knowing about it. So, please share this link via Facebook, Twitter, Google+, email, sms, word of mouth, smoke signals and whatever other social media you currently use!

 

Thank you and have an amazing day.
