It’s a sweet problem, sure — but it can also be a stressful one. How do you narrow down a world of choice into one memorable trip for two very different people? Here are six honeymoon travel tips to get you started. 1. Set a date night No parents, no friends, no kids. Just the two of you, a bottle of wine, pens and paper. Ideally, do this 12 months out, and try not to rely on devices (an old-school map is good). Ask the dreamy questions — where have you always wanted to go? It could be snorkelling in the Seychelles, a lost week at Burning Man or a 5-star ski trip. Don’t get bogged down in the nitty-gritty at this stage. Shoot for big ideas you both love, jot them down, and enjoy it. 2. Fix your budget This needs to happen when the wine bottle is in the recycling bin. The average Irish honeymoon budget is between €4k and €9k — but you can get a great holiday for less by travelling off-season, going all-inclusive or shortening the trip … [Read more...] about Six Honeymoon Travel Tips: Where do I start, and what are the pit-falls?
Quotes about honeymoon trip
The best way to start a marriage is to have a humdinger of a honeymoon. After all the stresses and strains of the great Indian wedding, there’s nothing like a quick post-shaadi getaway to put the focus back on you as a couple. And what’s more exciting than putting together a honeymoon?Nikhil Ganju, Country Manager, TripAdvisor India, commenting on the findings of the 2015 TripAdvisor Honeymoon Survey said that, “Findings from our survey reveal that a significant number of respondents are ‘Do It Yourself’ (DIY) travellers and this attitude continues into the honeymoon planning as well.

Mayoral rivals Bill de Blasio and Joe Lhota teamed up Monday to denounce Iran at the UN — but the unity didn’t last, as Lhota slammed de Blasio’s past as an activist who supposedly embraced “democratic socialism.” Lhota criticized de Blasio’s travel to Nicaragua to do humanitarian work as an ally of the leftist Sandinista regime in the 1980s, as they fought the U.S.-backed counterrevolutionary Contras. And he seized on de Blasio’s decision to take a honeymoon trip to Cuba in 1991. Lhota, a Republican, said de Blasio’s past is “indicative of . . . a core political philosophy” that is relevant today as they run for mayor. Supporting “the Sandinistas, who were fighting Americans as well as capitalism, was absolutely not the right thing to do during the Cold War,” Lhota said. “Going to Cuba illegally is never a good thing in this country.” He added, “We do have a very, very different … [Read more...] about Republican mayoral candidate Joe Lhota blasts Bill de Blasio’s work in Nicaragua, Cuban honeymoon
1. Open the atlas (and a bottle of wine)Start your planning by cracking open Google Maps, the Atlas and a bottle of wine. Do this at least 10 to 12 months ahead of your wedding, and keep it loose. Where have you always wanted to go? Safari? The Seychelles? A lost weekend in Paris? Write the ideas down, and have fun - it's a wishlist, not a worry-fest. Pól's Picks: Check itaa.ie/offers for specials from Irish travel agents. 2. Set your budget… Someone has to pay for this. If that someone is you, bear in mind that the average honeymoon in Ireland costs between €4,000 and €8,000 per couple. That's not a must (you can get a better holiday for less, and a worse holiday for more), but it is realistic. Several tour operators, including Abbey Travel, Sunway and Trailfinders, do honeymoon gift lists that wedding guests can pay into. It beats getting a third toaster, anyway. Pól's Picks: Sunway (sunway.ie) had seven nights at the four-star RIU Cancun Hotel in Mexico … [Read more...] about Top 10 honeymoon travel tips
