There is something so delicious about this time of year! Apart from the turkey and trimmings….. it’s a thing called love and family and sweet beginnings. Many a canny mother or dad seem to know to keep a special bottle of champagne hidden away for that “unexpected” occasion.
We are going to the New Year’s Eve celebration of the NC Symphony again this year and I hope we are treated once more to another romantic evening. Last time as we gathered for the second half of the concert the young girl sitting next to me, a total stranger, turned to me in sweet joy to show off her brand new engagement ring! Her boyfriend had proposed to her during the interval and she was beside herself with delight!! A whole row of unassociated persons united for a few short minutes rejoicing, laughing and exclaiming with the happy young couple.
Yup, it’s the time of love, family and sweet beginnings. Planning a wedding can be stressful and a somewhat daunting undertaking – but planning the honeymoon afterwards can be the easiest part if you turn to experts for help! We have that expertise in romantic destinations.
This is the perfect time to try an exotic trip to Africa. It’s surprisingly affordable. Combine the elegance of the Cape winelands and the stunning scenery of the Peninsula with the thrill of a photographic safari in the bush. Or travel to the golden sands and pounding surf of the Indian Ocean and on to Big Five Wildlife in Zululand. Glide on makoro canoes through the Okavango Delta, watch elephants splash and play in Botswana, marvel at the magnificent Victoria Falls and end your journey sipping sundowners as you watch the sun set from the top of ancient granite boulders. Marriage is a big adventure and what better way to celebrate than starting out with your own African adventure?
Do you dream of the sun-bathed islands of the Caribbean and see the two of you relaxing on white sand beaches, toes in warm aqua oceans while sipping something tropically colorful? There are so many wonderful resorts to choose from on a bewildering array of islands, each with their own particular charm. It makes all the difference to have expert assistance in picking out the one just right for you.
Perhaps it’s the time-drenched cultures of Europe that appeal. A rambling wander through countryside dotted with castles, vineyards, olive groves or lavender fields. Journey down a river on an elegant cruise, ride bikes or hike mountain trails, take a fast train or test drive a new Mercedes, focus on food or beer or art. There are so many ways to make memories in Europe and what a special way to begin your life together!
Planning honeymoons and destination weddings are some of our most favorite trips. It’s such a wonderful way to begin and as we celebrate our 33rd year of marriage – we think we know what we are talking about! We’re looking forward to hearing from you in 2014 and beginning those plans.
