My European Honeymoon

Neal and I spent a lot of time deciding where were wanted to go for our honeymoon.  Initially we were going to go to Hawaii for a relaxing week long honeymoon but after realizing that you never know how quickly kids may come post marriage, we decided to take a 2+ week honeymoon in Europe.

Our first to-do was to pick the dates we’d be gone.  After looking at airline tickets, we decided to leave the Monday after our wedding (July 9) and to return a little over two weeks later on Tuesday, July 24.  With our tickets booked, we next to decide where all we wanted to go in between our arrival city, Amsterdam, and our departure city, Munich.

In the end, we traveled to 10 cities and 5 countries in 16 days.  It. Was. Awesome!  Here are a few teasers from our adventure.

    Have been to Amsterdam and loved it so much I could move there! Would love to know more about what to do and where to stay in Prague. The pic is great! I voted for Prague :)

    I already follow you on Twitter but I’m going to tweet! And I voted too – we’re thinking of going to Europe for our honeymoon too…there’s so many places to choose! I want the British Isles but also want to visit Northern France and Doug wants to visit Italy. I wish we could just take a month of to go! :)

  3. LC says

    I voted! And since I have never been to that part of Europe I would love to hear about any/all the cities you visited.

  4. Jess says

    Voted on the poll–really, I’d love to hear you talk about ALL of the cities but I picked my favorite two (Prague is a dream trip for me)!

  5. Donna says

    I have visited some of the cities except Prague. I’d love to go there one day and would love to hear about it.

    I’d also love to hear about Rozendaal and the history.

    I have always “liked” CC&C
