Default Where did you go on your Honeymoon!

Those that are married spill the beans, it might be interesting to hear about, as there are a wide variety of ages on expats and location choices would of changed over the years.... was the location a disaster or unforgettable!

I would love to know where our lovely member Wellington went to 50 years ago

Didn't have one...used the money for a deposit on our first house. My husband was working in Stockholm at the time....I collected him from Lime Street Station, Liverpool a few hours before we were married. He'd missed the last flight from Heathrow to Manchester. A few days later he flew back to Stockholm. Although he did manage to spend his stag night with the England footie team who were playing there at the time and got their autographs....men.

Only had a small wedding...7 people and a pub meal afterwards. 29 years later...I wouldn't change a thing.

We went to Jersey. It was May 1975 and we took off on a very small plane from "Sarfend" airport the morning after our wedding day. We stayed at the Hotel Norfolk and no one else staying there was under the age of 65 I still have all the receipts and the plane reservations from 33 years ago!

We did have a wonderful week. We went to the Zoo and actually met Gerald Durrell there, he was in the monkey cage! We spent a lot of time walking along the deserted beaches and it was a great week to relax, be together and start off our married life. One of these days maybe we will go back...........

We went to Aruba. This was October 2001, so the flights/airports were interesting...

We had a great time, and would like to go back.

Mazatlan, Mexico. Way too hot and I remember smelling like a combination of car exhaust and burritos after 5 minutes outside. Not the first place I would go back to.

Honeymoon....what Honeymoon..

we were living in Germany at the time and OH's poor mum organised everything in the space of 6 weeks, we flew back on the Friday, got married on Saturday in the lovely church right behind MIL's house and then off to the Pub for the due with all our family and friends and then flew back to Germany on Sunday. OH was back to work on Monday and back off to College I went..

but it was a lovely weekend and we have many happy memories..

the only forcing that went on was when I decided that we hadn't come all that way oop north to not give the hills a try, so pretending that it was "easing off" I marched the Mrs up Langdale Pikes. We got absolutely drenched, but it was kind of exhilarating, and when we got back down to the valley we found we had the bar in the Old Dungeon Ghyll to ourselves and they didn't mind us taking certain items of clothing off to dry them in front of the fire. Happy days.

It looks idyllic...no wonder you were in a hurry to rip your clothes off in front of the fire.

I should have taken everyones advice don't pay your money for a honeymoon it doesn't matter where you are, do it a year or so later.

Anyway we went to Cameron House at Loch Lomond for the first couple of days (not the duck bay marina ) flew to Toronto to see the falls etc for a few days then we flew to Calgary for a couple of days then drove to Lake Louise to stay for 4 days http://www.fairmont.com/lakelouise/.
will have to look out photos and post them.

All this in 10 days and had to go straight back to my nursing training and had my finals 3 months latter, mad idiot.

A nice time but wished we had taken it later and over at least 2 weeks!

I dunno Bru. My sister had a fairly large wedding...but they couldn't afford a honeymoon and my parents couldn't afford it either. They wouldn't change a thing...it's their 30th next week. Each to their own eh?
