When we started planning our wedding, one of the most common questions we were asked was:
“Where are you honeymooning?”
Great question! We got married so quickly that we decided to go on our honeymoon a few months after the wedding, so we could only focus on one thing at a time. Now that we’ve been married a month, we’re doubling down on the trip!
In professional blogger speak that means “Planning an international trip is so much more fun that planning a wedding!”
We decided that we had 3 main priorities for the trip.
- We want somewhere with nice hotels. We’re not very rugged people naturally and our honeymoon is definitely not the place to start.
- We want to stuff our faces with delicious foods.
- Historical things would be nice.
With all of things things in consideration, we settled on ITALY! Rome to be exact! We’re considering taking a longer trip and seeing another city, but we haven’t decided on that for sure. Actually, we’re just now digging into the gritty details. There’s a lot to consider for us. Luckily, we were gifted some money for our honeymoon, but as naturally frugal people, we’re still trying to make the trip as frugal as possible. We’ve decided to go in the chillier off-season to make the trip more affordable. (Shocker: Italy isn’t the cheapest option we could have chosen!) We’re also trying to find the right combination of airlines, layovers, and points to make the airfare a little easier to swallow, too.
We’re taking Italian lessons on a free app and reading up on Italian customs, but we know we need more information. Do you have any tips on traveling to Italy? What do we need to know?
