Jump to last reply

Hi wonderful people! My fiancé and I are about to book all of our flights for our honeymoon. We have figured out the details, and before we book I just want to make sure that you more experienced travelers don't see anything hugely wrong with our itinerary. Or places for improvement.

7.) July 15th 9:15pm Paris- LAX 12pm (Flight 4314 & 7087; from Smartfares.com, Norwegian airline; $736 each)

A couple of notes about things we have previously thought of while creating our itinerary:
1.) The reason for only one full day in Malaga, Spain, is due to the fact that with the ways flights are, we had to either add 3 full days here, and lose a lot in Marrakech, Essaouria, and/or Paris, or just cut Malaga down to only 1 day. We have the option of leaving Malaga on an afternoon or evening train to Seville in order to give us a half a day longer, if recommended, and if we can keep our bags at the riad or hotel we will be checking out of.

2.) The notes stating that we'll be taking a bus are just there for now, but we'd like feedback on the best ways to get to and from these areas (i.e. Marrakech to Essaouira).

3.) When our flight gets in very late in the evening, but I put that we will be staying from that night until the day of checkout, i understand that it's not as if we are counting that day in our actual time to visit this place- it's just a note of logistics and when we'll be needed booked stay.

4.) I am considering applying for this credit card to use this year for these flights- it has great credits towards travel, and we'll be paying it off in full as soon as we redeem those credits. Any opinions on this or reasons we shouldn't/better option?

5.) My fiancé and I are aware that this is going to be tons of traveling by plane, maybe train, bus, taxi etc. And it will be tiring. We also know that a lot of peoples opinion will be that it doesn't sound much like a traditional romantic relaxing honeymoon getaway- but we live on the central coast with beautiful beaches, hiking, and lots of time for soaking it up, right in our backyard. So for us, this adventure sounds like a ton of fun to do together and see astounding parts of the world!

6.) We know it will be Ramadan when we visit Morocco; we know we will have to be accommodating and open to the fact that certain places will not be open, certain places will close for large periods of time, and there won't be alcohol served anywhere for the most part. We feel pretty confident in our ability to see past this and find the positive in it, like being able to see this amazing part of the culture, and are ok with a few moody Moroccans famished from food and water until they break their fast. The other option is to not see Morocco at all, and that seems a crap option to us.
