Greg and I love to travel, and have always shared the same excitement about experiencing new cultures, tantalising our tastebuds in the local cuisine and merely getting lost in the splendour of the landscape. Greg’s family is originally from Europe and my grandfather is from Spain. So it was only natural that Europe be the

By the time we ‘got around’ to organising our honeymoon, it was timed to coincide with our one year anniversary. Because we’d spent 6 months travelling around Europe in a motorhome just before we got married, all we wanted to do after our wedding was ‘nest’ – especially as we’d bought our first home and

After spending the night at the Emporium Hotel we headed up to Golden Beach, Caloundra where we stayed at the Grand Pacific Breakfree Apartments. It was a beautiful place to stay where we were able to choose whether to eat out or in and relax all day by the pool. It was nice to be a

When you marry a teacher in the middle of a school term, a long honeymoon is never on the cards. Our 8-day honeymoon needed to be somewhere close, but far enough away not to feel like ‘home’.

The Santa Maria Del FioreWe travelled from Paris to Florence on an overnight sleeper train… which was an interesting expereince to say the least! We arrived safe and sound in the early hours of the morning, and had the chance to explore the city a little before checking in to our hotel ‘Hotel Pendini’ –

Michael and Sally in front of the Eiffel TowerOf all the cities in the world, I had always dreamed of travelling to Paris. Intrigued and inspired by the art, fashion, history and culture of this city, I was so excited to finally travel overseas (for the first time in my life); and to visit the

Joel and I really weren’t sure whether we would end up having a honeymoon, with the epic-ness that was our DIY wedding and a budget that was already way out of control. For two students an extravagant overseas holiday was definitely not going to be on the cards however hard we might wish… so when

During our honeymoon, I couldn’t get my husband out of the ocean… and I was right there beside him, kicking away as a novice snorkeler. When you take the plunge, you never know which kinds of awe-inspiring sea creatures will swim up beside you, swim along with you, or put on a show.Here’s a clip

Olly and LaurenAfter our amazing wedding that we would happily do again tomorrow, we got impatient and decided waiting for Olly’s Australian Visa to come through before taking our big overseas honeymoon was going to be too long of a wait!

Caneel Bay features seven secluded beaches on 170 lush Caribbean acres. We chose Scott Beach, a crescent of unspoiled fine-sand beach, as our oceanfront home for our honeymoon, and we found out that during most of the year, the resort doesn’t book families with children here.
