Scoop from their wonderful post-wedding South Africa getaway.
Junior college is a pretty epic phase. You probably still remember that feeling of walking into your classroom for the first time and being a tad bit nervous yet excited about how different this is going to be from the comfort zone of school. Fresh faces, fresh surroundings and fresh beginnings.
Our couple in spotlight, Srishti & Jeetu met during this point though their love angle didn't really take off immediately as the two of them were leading independent lives. While they managed to stay in touch even after college, it was only after a twist in fate that the two met again at a common friend's wedding and that's where the bond properly began to cement. After a brief courtship, they decided to tie the knot and were set to explore this new chapter together.
We've been fortunate to have planned travel for Jeetu's family for years now through several memorable adventures. With this new part unfolding the couple soon dropped by at our office (pre-Zoom times, we tell you) to get stitching their dream honeymoon together, piece by piece.
As we always do, we jumped straight in to knowing more about them as a couple. What they love, what they can tolerate and what their biggest desires are. After a few meetings and a lot of chat, we suggested South Africa for they were in search of an experience that embodied wildlife, self-drives and a great city vibe to mix along.
Srishti & Jeetu spent over 10 days in South Africa for their honeymoon. The adventure began out on the Garden Route in Knysna where they spent a few nights exploring this gorgeous region and its attractions before heading off to Aquila Private Game Reserve for a couple of days in search of Lions, Giraffes and Elephants. There on they explored Hermanus getting immersed in incredible experiences such as Whale Watching & Shark Cake Diving while also soaking in the jaw-dropping views of the Western Cape province. And as we always say, save the best for the end. These two adventure lovers spent 4 nights in one of favourite cities in the world - Cape Town, exploring the charm of this bustling metropolitan oozing with an eclectic vibe of magnificent scenic beauty, fantastic wine and beautiful modern gastronomy. They also covered key sights such as the Table Mountain, Cape of Good Hope and spent most of their evenings sipping on cocktails and craft beer at the V&A Waterfront.
MOST MEMORABLE EXPERIENCE #CURATEDBYCOZYMOONS?
"Driving around South Africa, exploring the awe-inspiring landscapes and just the exciting feeling of experiencing something new together, everyday was truly unforgettable!" they shared.
NEXT ON THEIR BUCKET-LIST
Having explored this gem of Africa, we pinged Srishti & Jeetu to check on what country they'd like to explore once the world gets back to travel ways. They let us in on the fact that they're eager to visit Greece up next. With the historic charm of Athens, incredible vibe of Mykonos and magical sunsets of Santorini - it definitely makes for a stellar vacation. Though we'd imagine lesser known islands such as Kos, Rhodes and Crete are all up for grabs with the way we'll long to discover lesser known and more unique lands.
