My favorite thing leading up to the wedding has been planning out our honeymoon itinerary. BF and I knew we wanted to venture somewhere where we could mingle in quaint neighborhoods with locals, soak in the culture, and eat some really good food. We ventured through Eastern Europe last summer for several weeks and we loved it. So we thought about heading south and visiting Italy – well, this idea only lasted about 15 minutes. The BF, trained as an architect and now a practicing Urban Designer, wants to spend at least 2-3 weeks in Rome soaking in the architecture. I had to talk him back to reality and assure him that I will send him on his own trip to Rome for the full architecture tour. I equated the 3 week architecture tour to me spending 3 weeks window shopping on Champs Elysees – that did the trick! It also opened up the discussion to another destination – France! I visited Paris with my best friend several years ago and I fell in love with the city of lights as most people do so I was on board with BFs idea to frolicking in a few French cities. We’re thinking of starting out in Paris, which includes several Le Corbusier stops (think Coco Chanel of modern architecture – sigh) and then heading south to Provence for wine tasting, decadent meals, and long walks in fields of lavender. We’ll finish out our trip in Cassis (pictured above), which is a beautiful beach town in Provence. Exciting right?
What do you think of our itinerary so far? Do you have any recommendations? Where did you and your love travel for your honeymoon? Where is your dream destination?
