Honeymoon -- Savvy Travelling
use of cybercafes as you travel the world...
you set off on your honeymoon you'll be leaving behind
family members and friends who love you dearly and
want to know that you're safe and having a wonderful
time. Checking in via the internet worldwide is extremely
easy, economical and fast if you know about this website.
is a search engine for cybercafes around the world
-- they have over 5000 listing so you're bound to
find a spot to send and receive e-mails. P.S.
We suggest sending a copy of each e-mail you write
back to your e-mail address as well. Presto, at the
end of your trip you have a cyber diary of your honeymoon
without any real extra effort.
you and your honey travel round the world you'll be
meeting new friends and creating international friendships.
Chances are that some of these couples will remain lifelong
pals. Instead of exchanging e-mail addresses on bits
of paper or handing out business cards, why not design
a travel card that typifies the two of you? Include
your telephone number, e-mail addresses and the city/country
you live in. (Exact address can be exchanged later on
in the relationship when you know each other better).
Add some funky graphics and anything else you feel represents
the two of you and Journeywoman guarantees they'll be
a great hit.
an "Our Home Shopping Notebook"...
you travel round the world you will be enticed by a
cornucopia of shopping opportunities -- an international
bazaar of fabulous items that you might want to bring
back home. To do this properly, Journeywoman suggests
that you begin a notebook containing all the info and
data the two of you will need to make wise purchases
for your living space. Note the dimensions of the rooms
in your home, the size of your bed and your dining room
table, include color samples of walls, swatches of material
already being used in your home, etc. Now as you travel
through rural India you can buy a wonderful hand-embroidered
tablecloth or a small exquisite carpet in Turkey without
worrying about whether it will fit or be suitable. Pack
a tape measure, too, and you're just about ready for
savvy honeymoon shopping. P.S. To educate yourself further
about shopping around the world, check out an interesting
and helpful new website called: http://www.ishoparoundtheworld.com/
We also recommend another article at the Journeywoman
website called: Don't
Shop Until You Drop for shopping tips worldwide.
a collection with your sweetie...
single travellers both you and your fiancee probably
had rituals of your own as you travelled. Perhaps, for
you, it meant seeking out cookbooks along the way; for
him it was collecting antique toys. While those rituals
shouldn't necessarily stop, it's great fun to begin
an "our's" collection as well. It adds spice and another
dimension to your travels together. I know one couple
who collects black and white photography for their home
whenever they journey, another gathers tiny but very
ornate boxes and yet another duo (with a great sense
of humour), saves the airsickness bags from each airline
that they fly with.
your experiences in photos...
pictures! If you are a photography aficionado, you don't
need this prompting. However, there are many couples
who insist that they don't want to experience their
honeymoon via a camera lens. Journeywoman can't argue
with that but we suggest you take at least "one roll
of film in a throw-away camera" on this special trip.
This way you're not preoccupied with getting the perfect
shot, you don't have to worry about carrying heavy photography
equipment or becoming the target of thieves who want
your camera. Instead you will have a small, manageable
pictorial record of this very special journey. Trust
me, it will come in handy when your children or grandchildren
require "show and tell " items for school. And around
your 25th Anniversary when nostalgia kicks in, don't
be surprised if you take out the old honeymoon photos
and have a wonderful night of reminiscing.
words on marriage...
a good marriage is a time of trial.
like cooking calls for forethought.

are not as they are made but as they turn out.
without faith is like a teapot without a tray.
