Where for your Honeymoon or 2nd?

Buonasera, Buenas Tardes, Ladies and Gentlemen,

Firstly, I was married very young and was pregnant ... However, after my 1st daughter Naia was born, we all went to Venice in the month of May ... The allure of Italia, has always been in my blood.

Then, after my 2nd daughter Nathalia was born, the following year, we decided on No More ...

A couple of years later, we travelled again through Italia and this had been my 3rd trip to Italia. My 1st trip to Italia was with my parents and Grandmom for my 16th Birthday. Florence and Milano.

Since then, we travel yearly to relax and enjoy our epicurean escapadas ...

Look forward to the wonderful stories and humorous anecdotes.

Kind regards.
Margaux Cintrano.

Lake Placid, NY area in January. Did a little hiking and tried a little campfire cooking.
Two years later, Corvara, Italy.

Bill and Dawgluver,

Thanks so much for your feedback ...

1) Dawg: Kaui, Hawaii is a paradise. We stayed at the Sheraton on Popu Beach many years ago when we were living in San Francisco, California.

2) Bill: No matter how many times I go to Italia, there is always a novel place or venue to discover ...

Have a nice wkend.
Ciao, Margaux.

I went to work.

We married with just two witnesses, had a knees up in the pub and both went back to work after the weekend.

Romantic I am.

Some would argue that Südtirol - Alto Adige is not a part of Italia.

We decided to be corny and had our honeymoon in Niagara Falls. I had stopped at the Falls for an hour on a bus trip and was very I impressed.

Gravy Queen: As long as the two you enjoyed having your feet up in the air in a Pub ... Sounds very riskque, like two teenagers ... Just like we were too, having had to get married so young ...

Taxi: I went there on a High School Trip ...

Bill: I have been to Trentino Alto Adige ... Trieste is lovely ... This region has some stunning Red Wines ... The Ottoman Austrian Historical Roots merged with the Northeastern Italian ...

Thank you for all your feedback, anecdotes and lovely travel stories.
Ciao.
Margi.

We were married on a Friday evening and drove to Myrtle Beach after the ceremony and a small Mexican dinner with friends. It was March, and the beaches were almost empty, but the air and water were nice and warm, so we had lots of beach time and we went to Medieval Times for their dinner and show Saturday night.

It was just me and him and the preacher, afterwards we went and ate a sandwich in the parking lot of a fast food joint.

We took a cruise for our honeymoon to the Bahamas, St. Martin, St. Thomas
Nice but next time I'll do it with a different husband
