So, we’re planning our honeymoon. We’re hoping to travel from London, where we live, to Istanbul, where Ian proposed, in a one month long jaunt.
We’ve currently come up with a loose plan of where we want to go but we’re asking for some help with working out how to get places and for some recommendations on what we should do when we get there.
Also, if anyone has any good travel resources to share with us regarding overland travel through Europe we’d be very glad of it. We’re already aware of, and avid users of, The Man in Seat 61.
We’ve created a map of all of the castles along the route, as well as where our main target cities are. I’ve publicly shared it, so feel free to add suggestions or simply use it to get your bearings.
We’ve got no more than 3 days in each country if we’re going to make it all the way to Istanbul in our allotted month.
If you need some guidance about whether to suggest an activity, these are probably some good interest points to light your way
- We love castles
- We love walking
- We love history
- We love science
- We love nature
- We love technology
- We love food
- We love wine
- We love beer
If your suggested falls into one of these interest points, it’s definitely worth suggesting. If it doesn’t, it’s probably suggesting anyway as we’re a fairly adventurous couple.
