Because we had already spent a huge chunk of our savings for our wedding, hence we did not have our honeymoon immediately after that. Need time for some kaching-recovery. Hence we also took the opportunity to slowly (by slowly…. I do mean very very very slowly) plan for our honeymoon.
First was deciding destination.
Honestly, I was thinking more of a relaxing beach resort kind of honeymoon but Bobby made a very important point. “Those relaxing trip we can go anytime we want. But if we don’t go to Europe now, when will we ever go again (baby and other commitment, not forgetting to mention while we are physically fit)?
You may asked, need to be very fit meh?
Ermm… no if you will be following tour I guess, when transport will be arranged from point-to-point and all you need to do is hop on/off. When I went to Seoul, I told people that Seoul is the city of STAIRS! But now… Europe is a continent of stairs! Especially in Paris!!! I can’t believe I actually climbed (literally with all my limbs) up the all stairs in Arc de Triomphe (but that’s the story I will tell later, if I rajin). But then I think think think… even carrying shopping bags and go sight-seeing also need energy one wor.
Anyways, back to the topic.
An overview of our honeymoon.

The photo above, is the legendary place that Bobby let me sit outdoor blow north-west wind blow for almost an hour. Apparently that was what everyone remembers the most and the most-asked experience I had.
Good ah you all.
25 December 2013 – Walk walk, cycle cycle and just go wherever our legs brought us
26 December 2013 – Fly back to Brunei
Another frequent question asked was,
“How much you guys spent altogether?”
Now that’s kind of tricky because… I didn’t really total up everything because I don’t feel like doing so. After all, it’s our honeymoon and one shouldn’t calculate that much for once in a lifetime experience right? Plus, actually we didn’t spend that much la. Not super luxury, nor very karit. Average la~
Will try to blog more but the thing keeping me away is … my lagging laptop.
Seriously, it’s not like I’m photoshopping every single photo. I just need to resize and rename and that’s it and that process itself takes quite long because my coming 6 years old lappie feels very sluggish while doing so. Hence making me very lazy to blog. *truestory*
