My fiance and I will be getting married in Salzburg, Austria in June 2014. I have lived there and traveled quite a bit in the surrounding countries. My fiance has also traveled quite a bit.
We are both teachers, so every summer we travel to new places. Whether it be in Europe, Asia, or the US, we've learned that we like combining TRAVELING and VACATIONING. That leaves us with the question: How and where should be spend the 15 days we have for our honeymoon?
We are very active people--love biking and hiking, trying new things, walking everywhere, etc. We're used to camping and staying in hostels. We like the ability to prepare some of our own meals and going out for a few. We aren't afraid of being in less-populated areas. Museums and such tend to bore us and the heat kills us. Money is certainly a factor. We'll probably be using public transportation, but aren't opposed to renting a car for part of the adventure. We'd love to explore more of Switzerland and some of Norway, but we don't know if it's financially feasible.
Here are (a few) things we've done and have LOVED:
Hut-to-hut hike in the Stubai region of Austria for 5 nights/6 days
Winery in Portugal
Sea kayaking the coast of Maine
Hut-to-hut hike in Lijiang, China
Following several stages of the Tour de France
Drinking good beer
Places/Things we didn't care for:
Venice in the summer
Paying $5 for a yogurt at a Swiss supermarket
Any ideas, references, or tips would be fabulous!
