Help! Honeymooning in Europe?

Jump to last reply

Originally my fiance and I were planning on honeymooning in Mexico. We were gonna go all inclusive and were most looking forward to eating, drinking and snorkeling.

Our plans changed when we found out his grandparents in England were not doing so well recently. Now we are talking about going to Europe and spending some time with them, then off to London for a few days and then on to maybe one other country. We will have at most 2 1/2 weeks and do not want to be overwhelmed with too much city hopping.

Fiancé has traveled Europe some and would like to go someplace he has never been before. My grandma moved to the states from Germany when she was young so I have some desire to go there. We both think Spain sounds cool as well. My fiance has been to Paris and does not have a huge desire to go back but would be interested in southern France potentially (we don't know too much about it). I'm also somewhat interested in Greece and Italy but my Fiance said he's interested in Spain over those two (he is currently learning Spanish and he likes their Soccer teams).

We are planning to travel in April or May of 2016 from the west coast. We enjoy hiking, snorkeling, laying out on the beach and going to pubs. We love seeing beautiful old architecture and wouldn't mind seeing a museum or two. Also love to see beautiful views.

My fiance said I could decide on the second destination but I am a bit overwhelmed with options. I am leaning towards Spain because it sounds like it will be warmer climate and we could go somewhere by the sea and enjoy some relaxing sunbathing. I'm open to hearing arguments for any of the countries I mentioned. Having never been to any of them it's hard to distinguish which we would enjoy the most.

Thank you for listening and being great resources of traveling knowledge!
