Honeymoon July 2012 -- need help with ideas

Jump to last reply

I posted this in the general tips forum and someone suggested I re-post here and some other places.

My fiance are trying to plan our honeymoon for July 2012. We need help! We can go for 3-4 weeks. Ideas we have had so far are Australia and New Zealand, Greece, Africa (he is more into that one than I am), Ireland and Great Britain. We haven't been able to settle on anything and need advice from experienced travelers.

In terms of Australia and New Zealand, we understand July will be winter and in some spots it can be quite cold.

In terms of things we like to do, we are very into wine and if we go to a country that produces wine, we want to include winery tours. We also like spas and cities (we live in Manhattan and are city people). We aren't particularly into beaches although we would consider including 1-2 beach days wherever we go. However, we certainly would not want to pick a spot that is all about beaches. We would probably be considered foodies -- when we travel, we like to enjoy some fantastic dinners on some nights while on other nights we go to local markets and grab a nice bottle of wine to enjoy at the hotel.

We have both been to China. While there is more to see we want to go somewhere new.

We spent two weeks in France this past summer and while we love France, we want to do something new and something that warrants a really long trip. I have been to Tuscany and we want to go somewhere new to both of us.

We want to put together a truly special trip, knowing that it will be a long time before we can go away for this long again. We do not have a budget for the trip. While sky is not the limit, we think that wherever we choose to do, we will be able to fit it into the budget we decide to spend.

Any ideas are welcome!
