Dear friends and family,


Fabian and I celebrated our three-month wedding anniversary on April 12. Since announcing our marriage in January, many of our family members and friends all over the world have asked how they can send us wedding gifts. Initially, we were telling people to wait until they can come visit us. We now realize that for many people that won’t be possible anytime soon, and for others, it’s just not possible at all. Also, the cost of sending a tangible gift to Ecuador is prohibitively expensive due to international shipping costs and high import taxes. So with that in mind, we decided to crowdfund our honeymoon!


Due to the pandemic and complications of traveling outside of the islands at the moment, we have decided to keep our adventures closer to home. Fortunately, we live in one of the most unique places in the world for exploring and experiencing nature, the Galápagos Islands!


While we have both had a chance (me in 2019, Fabian over the past 25 years) to visit many wonderful places in the Galápagos, there are still many more neither of us has ever been. That is why we have decided to go on a very unique cruise on the Samba Yacht. It's the only boat that visits Marchena Island, and the only cruise that operates this particular route, which goes to a total of 12 places we have never visited before!


We have included more details about the boat and the itinerary in our Honeyfund wish list. We've divided the cruise into daily activities and categories of expenses so you can easily choose for what exactly you'd like to contribute to our dream honeymoon.


Thanks so much in advance for your love and support, and for helping us make our dream a reality. We can't wait to share our honeymoon (well, the photos anyway) with you!

One birthday down, one to go!

We celebrated Fabian's 47th birthday on June 12 with a lovely party on a farm in the highlands of San Cristobal Island. That means we're less than one month away from my birthday (on July 12) and only a few weeks from departure on our honeymoon cruise.

Remember, we are going to take unique photos throughout the trip to thank every gift-giver individually. We won't have an internet connection or cell service for the entire week-long cruise, so it's better, if you are planning to contribute, to do so prior to July 5. That way we have a chance to download the gift list before we depart, so we have the info we need to make our special thank you cards.

Finally, a huge thanks to all of you who have contributed to our Honeyfund so far. Every gift means so much to us!!!

We look forward to sharing our Galapagos adventures with you very soon.

With much love,
Alethea & Fabian

We call the islands home, but there are still many "new to us" places left to explore. For our honeymoon, we're going to check a bunch of those off our list!
