Are you ready to plan your honeymoon?
Before you book any tickets, ask yourselves these five questions. They’ll help map out your choices and make the planning processes easier.
1. What do we want to get out of this?
If you and your sweetheart want to start your newlywed life with a big adventure, go ahead and plan a backpacking trek through Nepal or a cruise around the coast of Alaska. But if you just want to relax together, skip the elaborate trip and spend a few days at a B&B instead.
2. What’s our budget?
Figure out your budget before you start planning. Your options for where to go and how long to stay will be different if you’re working with $500 versus $5,000.
3. What sort of vacations do we enjoy?
Don’t plan a trip to Italy because everyone says it’s romantic or a Caribbean getaway because that’s what your sister did. Think about what your ideal vacation would be, not just what you think a honeymoon should involve. It will be easier to come up with ideas that will make you both happy.
4. How much time do we have?
If you can only take four days off work, don’t spend half of them traveling! A short amount of time for your honeymoon means you should pick somewhere close to home. If you have a couple weeks available, then you can consider country hopping around Europe.
5. Do we even like to travel?
Just because other people take a honeymoon trip doesn’t mean you have to. If you find travel stressful and anxiety-inducing, don’t start your marriage that way. Instead, plan a staycation in your own city, with plenty of unplugged time to relax together.
The Alamo was a place occupied by Spanish settlers, and an important part of the early stages of Texas’s war for independence from Mexico. The Spanish settlers established a military and prepared for a fight. During the early stages of the war, a group of Texan soldiers ambushed and took over the Alamo from the Mexican military and gained control of San Antonio. Shortly after, the Mexican military gained control once again. The Battle of The Alamo went on for years and eventually ended with the Texans winning.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
While your first inclination might be panic when you map out the various appointments and meetings on your upcoming business trip, relax. Trust us, a rental car has you covered.
