- Wedding: June 2014
Bees!!! First, hello. My first topic. We are getting married June 21 and are SO EXCITED to honeymoon, especially since we, uh, have not been participating in “adult activities” before the wedding. So we are understandably looking for SECLUDED, PRIVATE type of thing.
Wondering if you Bees have any ideas?
We have a 4K BUDGET, and want that to include flights if possible. We might be able to get some gift mileage, so a bit over could be doable.
We enjoy the type of trip where we will get up early and do things (touring, walking, sightseeing, hiking, boating, swimming, photography, riding horses, etc) all day and have a very relaxing evening with a glass of wine at our hotel/resort. A historic or natural destination would be great.
NO BEACHES. We don’t like sand. Its nasty, sorry beach people!. Not this trip 😉 We would love to stay for as long as 10 days– we are pretty flexible job-wise so the budget is the most limiting factor. AKA we want to stay as long as possible for the money to hold out while having luxury 😉
What we were thinking:
-ALASKA: there are amazing resorts we would love to stay at (Kenai Fjords Glacier Lodge) BUT I don’t think that will be in budget 🙁 This is/was our first choice but I just am not sure we can do it. We might be able to do it for like 4 days 3 nights with flights, but no longer and we wouldn’t have any money for extention days in a cheaper place.
–Peru/Machu Pichu: We have been wanting to go for a while, and would love to do a luxury trek, but again, budget!!! Who knew 4k didn’t go this far?!??!!? A bit worried about the weather, but would love to hear what other bees have done??!?!
–UK: Ireland/Wales/Scotland: This is actually probably the most-affordable option as once we are in-country most of our spending money would be taken care of. I would love to do a kind of wilderness/wiskey/castle/fishing tour of Scotland, as I have never been so far north in Britian (only been in England and Wales). Any ideas to make it special? A special castle stay for a night or something?
Bees, lets talk about NON-BEACH honeymoons together!!!!
