lauren.dudek.39:  I thought you didn’t want any place in central america and/or warm? In this hemisphere, why not canada?

Sorry, but Fiji is going to be a hell of a lot hotter than 75 degrees. Why can’t you go anywhere in this hemisphere?

I found Thailand to be very affordable, but HOT!

lauren.dudek.39:  business class flights from the US to Europe or APAC are going to eat up your entire budget, or close to it. My fiancé is 6’5″ and flies coach all the time. Just book an exit row, bulk head, or one of the premium coach seats with extra legroom. Otherwise you may have to reconsider staying somewhere in North America.

It depends what you want to do at your honeymoon. Europe is a continent it is not just Italy or France ๐Ÿ˜‰ If you want to explore the coast I would suggest Spain, Southern France or Toscany. If you want to explore the history you can do the “great european tour”. You can start with London and ended your trip for example in Wien.  You will save so much money if you arrange this trip by your own ๐Ÿ™‚

My suggestions:

1) Sun and sea – Southern France (Nice, Cannes or Provence), Monaco than Italy – Toscany, Verona, Venice and end could be in Rome.

<br />2) Mountains & cities – Germany (Munich, Alps) than Switzerland (Alps, Zurych, Geneva, Luzern) Italy possibly and end this trip in Austria with Salzburg and Wien (or prolong that to Prague)

3) England & Scotland – London, Oxford, Brighton, York, Edinburgh etc. etc… <br /><br />Europe is not cheap especially big cities or turistic centres but it depends on what you want to do. I think 5K USD is more than great budget for honeymoon ๐Ÿ™‚

damarajade:  Scandinavia is the furthest thing from affordable. 

lauren.dudek.39:  Following up on what you said, Easyjet doesn’t fly to Scandinavia but Ryanair (even cheaper than Easyjet) does. We flew with them to Oslo but just FYI Oslo was seriously the most expensive city I have ever been to in the world. I second Ombrebee. Go to London Gatwick and from there buy cheap tickets with Ryanair to just about anywhere. Greece, or anywhere in Eastern Europe,  would probably be the most economical or buy a rail pass and take the train somewhere fun! ๐Ÿ™‚
