I realized that I want no communication while on our honeymoon from family and friends. So I suggested to my Fiance that we will bring our phones but use it for only an emergency. No texting, no facebook on it, no nothing. I just want it to be us. I think I have him sold on it. 🙂
Now the only reason I was going to bring my laptop is because I will be taking tons of pictures and video. My memory card will get full fast. Was going to load up the pictures and video onto the laptop every so often during the week. But I can imagine the hastle of it all…..having to get it through security in the airports. Not so sure its worth the annoyance of it all. So the next best thing is to maybe buy another memory card for my camera. ?
So what are you other bees doing?

I’ve never had extra hassle during security for a laptop. You just take it out of the bag and stick it in a tray. I’m going to take my laptop with me cuz I love surfing the web and my fi is going to take his saxophone to practice every morning to I gotta have something to do :/

Fiance and I haven’t talked about it, but I am planning on leaving my laptop behind. I will bring my cell but I will leave it in our room and not carry it every where with me.

Too much temptation if you bring your laptop with you… get two other memory cards and load them at home at the end.

@Earlybride: We brought cell phones in case we got separated but left them off since roaming is incredibly expensive. We’ve travelled with laptop etc and it’s really no big deal. They just sometimes make you open it and turn it on at security.
A large memory card Ann be sufficient though. We did 3 weeks in Europe and took thousands of pics with a couple larger cards, so now I typically just bring an itouch or my iPhone to check things when we have wifi.

I am bringing my cell and my ipad. We own a home and have kids so we need to check in at least once a day.

iPad for researching local activities and checking bank balances, etc; will do an occasional email check (I like staying a little bit in the loop). Prepaid local cell phones (overseas roaming is $$$$). No blackberry, no laptop, nothing that can talk to my work network.
I don’t mind keeping in touch with friends and family. I won’t even think about work though!

I’d like to say No, but I know us too well. We are chronic internet hounds and browse for fun, showing each other fun things we find and reading each other news stories. I’m betting we take at least one laptop, and he’ll have his iphone.
But I will make sure we turn them off sometimes!

We’re tech junkies (especially DH) so only bringing our iPhones wasn’t an option. Besides, we wanted to keep a Honeymoon blog so we each brought our iPads and a blue tooth keyboard. We had a lot of down time during sea days (we took a cruise) so it was nice to use our iPads to read the books we had downloaded before leaving. Honestly, I don’t leave the house without my iPad (it fits right in my purse) so it was only natural it would come with me on vacation even if that vacation was our Honeymoon.

we are bringing our cell phones and our laptop.
the laptop is mostly just so i can empty my camera’s memory card each night… i take alot of pictures.
the phone is because our honeymoon first starts out as our wedding trip and we will need the phone to make sure everything goes as planned.

We did – mainly to check in with family as we were going overseas (Thailand & USA) and for safety when we did our own thing for an hour or so then wanted to find each other again

I will be leaving my laptop at home, but I will absolutely be bringing my cell with me… not only because I need to be able to keep in contact with my kids, but because it takes great pics (just in case I don’t have my camera with me at all times)

We’re bringing both, too connected not to! Cell phone mainly because I need to have contact to our young children, and it takes pictures!

I’ll probably be bringing my cell phone and my iPad along. The cell phone because whoever watches my dog may need to get up with me (and my mom will probably call at least a few times) and my iPad to look for things to do.
