Many of you may not know that as well as a previous life as a Visual Merchandiser, I also spent 3 years as a travel consultant when I returned from travelling myself for a year.
On this note I wanted to spend today's blog exploring some of my favourite places in the world and some alternative ideas you may not have thought of when looking for somewhere to go on your honeymoon.
Hopefully I've covered a wide variety of budgets here so there is something for everyone.
Fairly normal you might say ... but very few people visit Italy on Honeymoon and get off the main city routes of Florence, Rome and Venice.
I'd suggest hiring a cottage or farmhouse in rural Tuscany and exploring some of the historic countryside and towns around Lucca & Siena. You can fly into Pisa quite cheaply with Easyjet, hire a car and get exploring!
This gorgeous little converted barn just south of Siena can be hired this year from around £750 a week and you get a private pool. Available on http://www.italian-country-cottages.co.uk/
