Honeymoon Planning

We've actively begun planning our honeymoon! I'm more of a beachy-lazy lady, while Big D is adventurous and summer-fun. We thought about Atlantis Water Park in the Bahamas, a Mediterranean cruise, or a Sandals Resort. But this morning we came to the ultimate honeymoon destination choice for both of us. We both talked about this being our last chance to be free wild young adults. We've already settled down, comparatively to our siblings and friends. We can't pick up and back-pack across Australia for a year, since we have a house and pets, and are already planning for children. So, we decided on .....

A Euro Trip!

Big D has always wanted to do a back-pack style Euro-trip via the Euro Pass Euro Rail. We could hit several countries in one month. Starting in England, to Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Grease, and end in Morocco!

-We probably need to budget $10,000 for this trip.
-We'll do it Back pack style, and stay in hostels and cheap hotels.
- What will we eat?
- what attractions should we go see?
- shopping destinations?

And it will be just long enough to make us feel like we've lived and done the young travelers thing, and will be the perfect start to the rest of our lives!

We've only just begun the planning, So I'll be updating on the new and exciting things we want to do while we are there as we plan more. And Please post any ideas or suggestions you may have for us to do during our Honeymoon in any of these places!

  1. I know you're not into details yet but I strongly recommend going up the Arc de Triomphe instead of the Eiffel Tower when you're in Paris. You don't have to wait for hours and you have the most beautiful view of the Champs Elysees with the Eiffel Tower in the background... :)

    And for hostels, make sure to go in international ones, otherwise they might not speak English (for the countries whose national language isn't english obv)

    and if you're in Sevilla on a Sunday, you can go see Bull fighting... it's apparently awful (since they slowly kill the bulls) but worth it. They only have them on Sundays though so I wasn't able to see one so I don't know what it's like.

    and bring shampoo or buy some at the airport because you might have a hard time finding some. They don't have grocery stores in the cities, or if they do, they're kind of hidden. Unless you go in a non-touristy town.

    Anyway, I know these are just details but when you're at that planning stage, you'll be able to read my comment then for helpful tips..

    :) sounds like a great honeymoon!
