My husband and I got married in October, and we were fortunate that we were able to have 50 of our closest friends and family in Lake Tahoe to send a weekend together and it was perfect. Planning a wedding through Covid was tough but minus our guest wearing a mask inside the church it did not effect us that much.
We pretty quickly came up with the idea of a Christmas Market River Cruise over thanksgiving break and the first two weeks in December. I have been to Europe several times but my husband had only been once. We also live in Southern California so cold, snow and a non-Commercializes Christmas would be different experience.
Our plan was to fly out on Thanksgiving (also avoiding trying to figure out family to go to for dinner) spend a few extra day in Budapest, The Scenic River Cruise, then a week road trip through Baveria and Salzburg. With COVID’s number rising and the River Cruise cancelling, we understandably have cancelled. I don’t know if it is Covid fatigue, or just sadness that our Honeymoon was cancelled, but we are struggling to come up with new ideas (plan B/C/D).
Based on our work scheduled, my husband school schedule (during the pandemic he felt the call to become a RN so he is going back to school for that), and maybe some cockeyed optimism we are focusing on End of May beginning of June.
Our budget is around 10k (excluding flights) and we are not beach people. We enjoy cruising (more luxury small ships vrs mega ships) and we want something unique and different.
If you could “redo” your honeymoon where would you suggest?
