The company specializes in highly customized travel itineraries which was right up our alley. With all the intense wedding planning going on, FH thankfully took the lead on planning the honeymoon and has been working closely with our travel specialist to put everything together. He told her the things we enjoy (beach, adventure and nature, LOTS of wine & food because seriously, Australia and New Zealand produce some of the best wines in the world) and she came back with recommended locations that best fit our interests.
Some of our itinerary stops include adventurous locations like the Great Barrier Reef, the Daintree Rainforest and the Glow Worm Caves. A few of the activities we have planned include scuba diving (for the first time, yikes) at the Reef, bike tours, wine tours, a boat tour of Milford Sound, seeing a performance at the Sydney opera house, a Lord of the Rings tour and possibly a cooking class or two. The custom itinerary designed for us includes hotels, private transportation, most activities and some of the airfare since we're going to a number of different cities.

This will be one of the most epic journeys of our lifetime (and hopefully not the last)--we are going for 3 1/2 weeks since we saved a TON of money on airfare. Since we're having a destination wedding in May, we've decided to wait until September to honeymoon, giving us something fun to look forward to (other than our marriage of course!) once all the wedding hoopla is over. September is also our dating anniversary month and the day we leave will be our 8 year anniversary. I am SO pumped!!!
If going on a honeymoon, will you plan it yourself or use a travel agency? Are you going right after the wedding or are you putting it off for a few weeks/months?
