Cristina and Drummond's big adventuremoon

Bike tour mega adventure plus honeymoon.

Following the wedding we will be starting a 5-month cycling adventure. We plan to ride through the Himalayas, down the Japanese coast, and then around the shores of the Mediterranean. Most of the trip will be old-school, self-supported bicycle touring, but into it we would love to sprinkle honeymoon ‘gifts’ – good meals, nice stays in beautiful locations, and fun days off the bike. These will be cherished touches of luxury and nice reminders of those who gave them.

We’ve written up some ideas of ‘megamoon’ gift ideas below. To avoid the complexity of honeymoon fund registry sites and gift cards, we’d suggest email transfers or paypals to ‘[email protected], which will go to our shared trip account.

Just check the box next to any gifts you wish to purchase, then click the 'Purchase' button at the bottom of the page. All prices are in Canadian dollars.

Questions? If you have any questions, please contact the event host.
