I am trying to plan a honeymoon and I am having a very hard time!Â We definitely want to go to London and Scotland, probably Edinburgh as well.Â We have talked about maybe going to Ireland or Paris as well, but those aren’t set in stone.
I have never tried to plan a trip that includes multiple desitations before, especially internationally.Â I foundÂ EasyJet
for cheap flights when actually in Europe.Â However, it’s the whole planning the initial flight as well as the hotel booking that is driving me crazy.
We have plenty of time before the wedding… We get married July 5, 2007, we’d ideally be leaving July 6.Â I get 10 days off work, so we plan on spending two weeks on our honeymoon.
Anyone have any advice that they can offer me?Â Â

I hope that’s July 5, 2008 or else you missed the trip!! LOL
What my fi and I want to do (we’re going to take a small trip after the wedding and a real honeymoon a few months later) is fly to Europe and take a cruise to several of the top countries on our visit list. The cruise we’re looking at leaves from Italy and visits Greece, Turkey, and a few other countries. I don’t know if this is even feesible for the places you want to see (sorry, I am Geographically challenged) but that might be worth looking into.
I would also check out some of the major travel sites. Some offer multi-destination "tours" that include several countries. Good luck, and HTH!

Yes! please use a travel agent! He helped me sooo much and did all the legwork for me. He offered us advice, and helped us to get a hotel that was already sold out on Expedia and other travel sites. He does not charge a fee so its totally worth it. He’ll work with you till the wee hours of the morning if you need to (as I did). It was such a relief to have someone experienced help me. He works for american express travel so its reputable.

If you’re planning an European get away, use a travel agent! I been over and couldn’tt hink of not using one, it’s the best way to get from point A to point B – also you might want to think of taking the EuroTrain that goes from place to place, in fact Paris from London is only a 6 hour car drive but with this train you can get there in about 2-3 and make Paris a day trip.
My fiances family all hails from England and we will soon be going back over to visit, I can’t imagine not going back to Paris when I’m that close! I’ll have my own personal travel aganets now!
Trust me, with all the different money, hotels and planning the drives, the site seeing…all that – you really can not go wrong paying the extra cash for a little help!
PS – Take some time looking at the English country side, it’s so beautiful!!!!!
