Quickie Question: Dream Honeymoon?


The honeymoon is one of my favorite bridal traditions. It’s a chance to get away, get used to your new relationship, bask in the glow of each other… it’s both fun and practical.

But of course there are honeymoons and there are honeymoons. Not all of us get the honeymoon of our dreams.

Mr. Twistie and I dreamed of London. We couldn’t afford it at the time we got married. Instead, we drove up the California coast to Vancouver and spent a couple lovely days there before turning around and driving home again. It may not have been our ultimate dream, but it was a heck of a great trip. We had lovely adventures along the road both ways. And five years later, we did get our dream trip to London. It was every bit as great as we’d hoped.

So what about all of you? Did you/will you get your dream honeymoon? What is it? If you’re doing something else, what is it? If you did something other than your dream, how did you enjoy it?

    A week on a captivating island with a white sand beach will definitely be the best getaway, somewhere in South America or South east Asia. And of course, I’d like to have a bunch of seafood – fresh and grilled!

    We had a mini-honeymoon. We drove out to the coast and stayed overnight at a great place that offers massages and has a 4 or 5 star restaurant. Our dream honeymoon was going to take place this year but we’re going to have to wait until next year!

    We went on a big trip (11 months) about 3 years before we got married (well, we got home then) So while we dreamed of Macchu Pichu, or Greece, or even Thailand, we settled for New Zealand (not so far for and Australian couple) We had a lovely week, and it was somewhere we wanted to go though could have done with some more relaxation, but it was not our dream. Still, that just leaves more places to dream of.
