6 Weddings and a Honeymoon (HELP!)
In the course of the next 6 months, I’ve been invited to 6 weddings. Unfortunately, one of the realities of living in France is that I can’t go to them all, so instead I have to find creative ways to be there in spirit (ie. I watched my friend Liz’s wedding on Halloween via webcam and took screenshots of my friends taking communion). Anyway, my friends Sarah and Bruce are the next to tie the knot in less than a month. They’re both wonderfully creative and fun people, and today we’re calling on you all for help to help them decide where to go on their honeymoon. Sarah has provided a little more background below in what they’re looking for out of a honeymoon, but they’re open to any and all suggestions and ideas. I’ll be posting a couple of my ideas tomorrow, but we’d love to hear from you! Where should Sarah and Bruce go on their honeymoon?
Its really not that simple to summarize the ideal honeymoon, is it? Plus there are *endless* options. I suppose that’s why I need help from PAV readers. We certainly like a a good deal of “new & exciting-ness” on our trips, which is why I’ve mostly been daydreaming about foreign countries in regards to a honeymoon. But just a dash of relaxing, lazing about needs to be thrown in there, too. Neither one of us are very good at laying on the beach all day- we get too antsy- but a few hours of it for a couple days in great if its balanced out with time spent romping around town. We like to explore by walking, which means that cities are a good option, but so are rural places that offer beautiful hikes. Don’t mistake our aversion to too much relaxing as a vote for adventure travel though- speaking for myself anyway, I am in no way into hang gliding, bungee jumping and the like. We are both vegetarian, so we tend to stay away from places like Brazil that are heavy on the meat. And HELL YEAH I want to go some place romantic! Pretty, pretty, pretty is what I want. No trip to Dubai, please. And, although the wedding is creeping up, we’ll probably go on the honeymoon next spring or summer once the dust from the wedding and the new home renovation settles, which is another element that ought to be taken into account.
