Honeymoon destinations

I've been doing a lot of thinking, planning and contemplating. About life.... I'm just in a thoughtful mood and it makes me want to really live. I thank God every day for all the blessings in my life.

On other thoughts Jason and I are thinking about our engagement party and honeymoon. We haven't had an engagement party yet and it's almost an annoying fiddly bit which I wish we didn't have to plan but I know we will. We're checking out a venue this weekend, though it will be very casual.

As for Honeymoon, we are coming to a decision but we are not entirely sure yet. I really wanted to go to Europe but it would have been so hectic. And Jason did want to do more relaxing. We were thinking of Vanuatu but the weather doesn't seem too good at that time of year. Now we are compromising and maybe for the initial honeymoon we will travel local and relax and later on in the year maybe about September we will go to Europe. It gives us more time to settle down and save again and have a wonderful time later on.

It may not necessarily be in the Whitsundays, but most likely North Queensland which is local. We have some of the most beautiful beaches in our own state of Queensland so we definitely should explore.

I'm pretty much obsessed with Lonely Planet guidebooks. These are the two guides I have purchased from work (We have 30% off travel books at the moment eee!). We are hoping to go to the Mediterranean part of Europe as the main part but of course we will go to Paris, London and have to go to Germany to visit a friend of mine. 

Well I hope everyone has a wonderful, relaxing, beautiful weekend!!

PS. I'm looking forward to this movie. I'm beyond excited! I'm off to watch the first one while eating lunch!

haha yeah I was talking to Jase about your honeymoon.. Europe is so big to have your honeymoon... you just got married, you'd be wanting to enjoy eachother - not having to get up early and make the most of the coupla weeks and see as many countries as you can lol somewhere cruisy is definitely a good idea, and then a long trip to Europe later in the year is even better...

I bet your HEAPS excited chica eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee I would be yayayayayyayay

Hi there. Just stumbled across your blog and it has me tumbling down memory lane! I've been married for more then 10 years but contemplated the same question you did....Europe or sit somewhere on a beach. We ended up on a beach and enjoyed every relaxing romantic moment! Have fun deciding:)

Oh Europe sounds lovely! Maybe you could take one of those river cruises where you can be pampered and sleep in late and see a new town or country every day.

I just saw your GoodReads updates. Wow, you go girl! You're inspiring me to hit the library and get busy on my summer reading!

I think whichever honeymoon you choose you will love because you are spending it with the one you love most. I saw Transformers this weekend...what did you think?

Hi there. If you don't make it to Europe on your honeymoon, it gives you something to look forward to doing later on? (You should put Edinburgh on your list too... I am biased!)

Oh, oh, I love all the gorgeous pictures in this post... and I must admit I am dreaming of Europe also. x

Honeymoon is one of the most cherished and awaited moments in the life of an individual. The natural beauty of Switzerland makes it one of the popular honeymoon spots among married couples. The beautiful orchards spread across different areas in Switzerland are indeed a treat for the eyes.
