View Full Version : Europe!?!
11-09-2005, 05:51 AM
Well, FH and I have decided that we definetly do not want to just sit on a beach for our honeymoon (although we love to normally...how funny). So we've decided we're definetly going to Europe. What we're deciding now is where and how. We've thought of flying to say Italy and cruising from there and then stopping in a few more places once our cruise is over (like this one http://www.costacruise.com/B2C/USA/Shopping/Month/CruiseDetail.
KAT_SVN_NAP). OR just flying over to Europe and getting a Europass (I don't know what it's really called) and taking the train/buses everywhere. We haven't figured out the best way for us to do it yet, and we do have a while to plan thankfully. We're planning on going in early summer of '07 (our wedding will be Jan 1st and then we're back out of school in the beginning of May so we'll leave after that). Does anyone have any ideas/tips/suggestions for us? Thanks!!

You might find this useful....
You can buy a pass for a certain time period and use it all over Europe...lot's of people do this in the UK in a gap year or when they finish uni.
Hope it helps!

nope...unfortunately not! Would love to travel to loads of places in Europe still, but have only ever done one country at a time trips (so far). Have only really travelled about alot when we have visited the states & canada.

Thanks for all of the replies guys! I'm definitely going to check out all of those websites :)
We're going to go to Tahoe (about a 3.5 hour drive from where we live) for our mini/pre honeymoon the morning after we get married. I think it'll be perfect because we'll have snow and the whole thing.
For Europe, we have no idea how to settle on a certain number of places- we want to see everything and we don't know when we'll get a chance like this again. I don't want to be completely "backpacking" because I want it to feel like a honeymoon too, ya know?
I feel like I'm getting a little overwhelmed with so much planning but it's all worth it in the end :p

That's what I think we'll end up doing but it's so hard to choose which country!

If I were you I would go island hopping in Greece.. Omg, Greece is so pretty.. The islands are just gorgeous.. I love the friendly people the greek culture.. I've been to Greece almost every summer since I was 10, I just love it there so much! All the little islands look different.. and the mainland is different from the islands.. There is so much culture too, ancient ruins and things like that.. And the greek food, oh my goodness!! I vote for Greece :D

My boss recently went on a cruise that went to Spain, Italy and Greece... I'm not sure of the specifics, but it was like a 3 week cruise and they stopped at all of those cool places! :) If you're interested in details, PM me and I'll ask him for more info.
