2016 honeymoon! Need advice!

Hi Fodors!

We are currently planning our wedding for fall of 2015. Unfortunately, I am a teacher and we will need to take our honeymoon June or July of the following year when I have the summer off.

Here is what we want for our honeymoon: a place full f culture but with lots of relaxation. I want villages and culture, he wants sun and sand or a trip that requires no work.
We did two weeks in Europe and been on several cruises.

Our first thoughts are:
5 days New Zealand, 5 days Tahiti (June will be its winter season so not sure it's worth it then)

winter school vacation: Alaska get a way spending the week relaxing by fires, snuggled in a wilderness resort, shopping and eating and drinking in quaint rustic towns.

Southern Europe tour again. (We did northern last time)
Visir south villages France, maybe do Spain and Portugal somewhere?

I can't sit on a beach for a week unlike he can. I need to be out exploring, outdoorsy activities, shopping, eating, drinking, etc.

ANY suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!

I would say Southern Europe tour would be the perfect one.

Depending on where you are specifically travelling from, we might suggest Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore or even Japan as options. They are all northern summer at that time and can provide everything you are after and certainly Thailand and Malaysia can be very inexpensive.
