Our Story

We are getting married! And we are giving a big party! But if you found this page you already knew that of course... Well, after we give a party we would like to take a break, go on a holiday, a Honeymoon to be more precise. Seeing as we already have a lot of stuff and we are having trouble figuring our what else to ask for, we thought that it would be a good idea to register for our Honeymoon as well.

Our Honeymoon

Destination(s): Italy, The Netherlands

The plan is to go to Italy! Right after we give all the people in The Netherlands, who couldn't be at the wedding, a small party do-over of course. So the current plan is to fly into The Netherlands a few days before Christmas. Stay there the weekend (and party!) and then leave to Italy by train Monday only to return two weeks later to the same means.

In Italy we want to visit Rome, Vatican City, Florence and Venice (in that order probably). Spend Christmas in Rome and New Year in Venice maybe? This is quite a trip of course and we could use everybody's help to make this dream come true. The exact details are not planned yet, but maybe you can help us with that as well. Below are a lot of ideas and activities that we could see us do (there is too much to do and see there anyway) we would love for you to help us choose which of these become part of our dream vacation.

Wedding Date:

Oct 25, 2012

Honeymoon Dates:

Dec 20, 2013 - Jan 13, 2014
Gifts are still appreciated and will be used toward our trip expenses.
