    Where are you going, and what are you planning?

    This is something I can get involved in, and OH and I haven't had ours yet, and we're just looking at booking it :lol: We're hoping to go to South Africa in April 2011, on our fourth wedding anniversary :rofl:

    Thinking Cape Town, diving with sharks, tour round the wine regions, whale watching and safari.

    What have you got planned?
     
  2. For my imaginary honeymoon Im going on a 5* Safari and then a relaxing beach holiday in Kenya :D

    We went to Turkey and it was a complete and utter disaster. We are atill paying it off and probably will be for a while so we thought we wouldnt be able to go anywhere else for at least 2 yrs.

    For those who dont know, we booked a 5* honeymoon suite, all inclusive hotel. We were double booked, and got sent to a 2* twin room, no cot for little man and the food made us all poorly. The balcony overlooked the main road through the resort and a stagnant river.

    Anyway, my Aunties bought us a weeks break in Center Parcs in December so were classing that as our honeymoon instead. I am literally the most excited person in the world for it. Even though it isnt for 3 months lol

    Did you guys book yourself, or go through an agent?

    I'm torn. I'm quite happy to book myself, but having an agent take all the hassle is a bonus. Plus one I've found guarantees not to charge commission and all the rates they charge will be lower that the hotels advertised price. Here: https://www.exceptional-travel.com/honeymoons The emails we've been exchanging make the company seem professional but also approachable and friendly, and I am really impressed with them.

    They asked what our budget was though, and I've no idea! :rofl: It's so far away!

    I normally package all my own holidays but as its our honeymoon in just gonna do it through agents so if things go missing or go wrong I can go through them and complain rather than do it myself.

    We were talking about going on our honeymoon on our first wedding anniversary but I dont think I'll be able to leave LO.
     
  11. I should imagine Meadow would come with us. I couldnt leave her so anything we do will be kid related.

    We went to Disneyland Paris for 4 days and stayed at the Sequoia Lodge and then went to Walt Disney World and stayed at the Grand Floridian...I have a small obsession with anything Disney..that and I'm bored of nice beaches..there's only so much sand and sea I can take.

    Tbh girls, Im not sure Id take Seth abroad for a while as it was really difficult having him there/. Not because of him, just the circumstances. heat, food etc. So don't feel guilty those not taking babies!!

    We went to County Kerry in Ireland for the week. We hired a massive cottage and had a wonderful time.

    We were sort of half planning on going to Hammerfest, as based on this year's dates it would have been a couple of weeks after our wedding, but I've just found out the 2010 dates and it's being held almost a month before on 12-13th March. I'm quite dissapointed as it would have been quite nice to do a festival but all the accomodation is in chalets so we could have had our privacy too! :cry:

    Don't have a clue what to do for honeymoon now! We don't have much money so we might just do a night or 2 in a nice hotel somewhere in the UK.

    Beca :wave:
