Dream vacation

We’re already approaching the end of August. Can you believe it?! My fiancĂ© and I are now forced to confront the fact that we have better start planning for our honeymoon (which will be in early Jan 2010), or at least know where we want to go! Otherwise, we’ll be spending our honeymoon on homeshore or that teeny weeny island south of us called Sentosa.

He likes the idea of Barcelona. I have no problems with it, especially since I haven’t had the chance to visit Spain. At the same time, a few images surfaced in my mind as I thought about honeymoon locations this morning.

Firstly, I am absolutely charmed by these photos of countryside France. I can’t believe places like these exist! Don’t you find them only in movie sets?



Then I thought about the movies I’ve watched. Did you catch Under the Tuscan Sun? I loved it but even if you beg to differ, you’ll have to concur that the scenery was stunning! That’s Positano (1st) and that’s (3rd) "Bramasole”, the house that was restored in the movie.



I know this was a real chick flick and there wasn’t much in the movie to salvage it. Except for the house. From Nights in Rodanthe:

Ok, have I got you back here in reality? Do you have any suggestions for honeymoon locations? Or tell me about where you went. I’m in great need of ideas and would love to hear from you!

  3. Me again :)
    Not sure you'll find such lovely weather in Europe in January... If you haven't been to New Zealand, I suggest these wonderfully romantic spots (from North to South of the country):

    www.hapukulodge.com
    www.peartree.co.nz (you can have the whole cottage!)
