we think we have our Honeymoon Destinations sorted!

We're visiting 8 countries!!!!!! OMG I am so excited.

We'll be going to:
Germany (Berlin & Munich)
Belgium (Brussles)
France (Paris & Nice)
Spain (Barcelona & San Sebastian)
Italy (Rome, Venice & Florence)
Monaco
Greece (Athens, Mykonos and Santorini)
Thailand (Koh Samui)

Belgium and Monaco will be small day trips the rest will be 2 nights or more. We've got a 5 week timeframe. I even went and bought a Lonely Planet Western Europe Book tonight and plan to start reading it now! We can't officially book anything for another 2 months as it's too far away for airfare prices but we have a good estimate from our travel agent friend (David's Best Man's Wife is a senior consultant for a well-known travel agent) and we've come in way under budget thanks to some great deals she will be able to get and doing alot of rail travel through Europe and staying in some private rooms in Hostels in France, Germany and Italy.

Our Koh Samui resort is to die for! We have roughly locked in 5 nights there and it'll be our last stop before home so we want total luxury!

Here is the website for the hotel for Koh Samui: http://www.sixsenses.com/Six-Senses-Hideaway-Samui/

I'm done gushing now

Very nice! I don't think I could take 5 weeks off...except for maybe maternity leave...bwahahahaha.

One thing you might want to consider--in Italy, visiting Sorrento and Capri. Absolutely beautiful--near Pompeii so they have black (volcanic) beaches. Pompeii is worth seeing, too. I went in 2000 so my itinerary is a little fuzzy but I think we were able to take a ferry from around that area to Athens. Mykonos and Santorini are absolutely amazing. If you go around a year from now I bet the weather will be really nice. We went a little later (May/June) and it was really hot....like 40C+ some days.

If you like ancient ruins, you might consider Olympia and Delphi...relatively near Athens and really amazing.

I'll be almost 29 when we're married so babies aren't going to be far off no.

We have done 4 weeks leave together before in Cairns and QLD so it shouldnt be a problem. David is amazing to travel with. So calm and fun!

:eek: :eek:

I was thinking the same thing! Here in the US, most couples are lucky to take a week, perhaps 2 if they've got the $$$ & the vacation time to do that.
We get 4 weeks annual holiday leave per year. I have just taken 3 weeks off cause I have accumulated too much so I still have 3 of my 6 weeks left that I had and I will get another 4 between now and our wedding.

I guess I should count myself very lucky!
