Basically you can go anywhere on a honeymoon. Considering we’ve traveled to the moon before, it is highly likely that if we were important enough and could make enough demands on NASA that we could also orbit the moon again.
Realistically though people are now literally going anywhere on honeymoon. Really it’s the concept that counts. I mean years ago in Ireland people were happy to go to Mayo or to do the Ring of Kerry. That’s not half posh enough nowadays. We’re less content these days and with all the choices available why should we settle?
The proviso nowadays is that we have to, got to get out of Ireland on honeymoon for us to have any credibility. Europe is for anyone who is on a budget. Asia and South Africa are for those of us who are more posh or at least this is the perception I am getting of people I talk to.
Those who have the real candy can afford their own private beach and hut somewhere in the West Indies. I’d have to say though that if I was in that situation I’d like a few more bodies around for a distraction. Not to say hubby isn't excellent company, but with all that money spent on a far off location, we want sun, sea, sand, stimulating company, asthetically pleasing views, good food, and everything else that should come with €3000!
You can literally spend any amount of money on a honeymoon depending on the time and location. It has become such big lucrative business that now travel agents and websites are advertising ways to win a free honeymoon with them.
I have to say though if I had some sun and himself by my side it really wouldn’t matter where I was. I could be basking in the West of Ireland for all I cared. It wouldn’t matter once I had the sun. That of course is the phenomenal problem. There is no guarantee of sun in this country and perhaps this is (and rightly so!) the predominant reason us Irish folk are heading off far and wide to celebrate our nuptials in exocitic and mystical surroundings. It is true to say however, that with the guarantee of sunshine on our great little Emerald Isle, we would be more that happy to bask in the rays on a beach in Wexford! Or would we?
