The New York Times Travel show is the authority on worldwide travel and this year your JBB team was there to get all the details on where to have amazing destination weddings, take the perfect exoctic honeymoon and of course fabulous party spots to kiss you single days goodbye in style.
I do wish that the media days were a bit longer because we had to fit so many seminars and exhibits into one day we hope we covered everything. First things first we had to stop by the Caribbean Pavilion to check out some of our hands down favorite islands and what’s new in regards to hotels and villas. Of course Jamaica stood out immediately as we did just visit and are looking for a do over. If you didn’t get a chance to check out the article you can find it here. We found out about a ton of places that are now on our list like Grenada, Dominica, and Curacao, they have tons of new hotels and villas opening on the islands not to mention the luxury travel accommodations are looking great.
Another country that we haven’t really learned to much about was Croatia, it’s actually quite an eclectic and beautiful country. Special thanks to everyone at the Croatia booth for taking the time and educating us on the rich history and things to do in Croatia. We are especially excited to visit Dubrovnik the coastal city is so rich with history and amazing architecture it’s perfect for honeymoons and a couples getaway.
Another great thing about the travel show is the fact that not only are you finding out about all these different countries and cities but it also gave us a chance to appreciate what’s in our very own backyard. The Visit Florida pavilion was filled with everything you could imagine from the sunny state of Florida from fabulous Margaritaville to family friendly Orlando. This show was so rich with information and we can’t get over all the connections that were made not to mention it now gives us an entire list of places that are now on our ‘Get Married’ series! Be sure to check out our video where we got to interview some of the reps from our favorite islands!! Thank you to Barbara, Valerie and Andre for giving us a special look into what it’s like to get married in Belize, Martinique, and Curacao.
