One of the dearest friends here recently started a discussion about memorable moments of our wedding. It was quite an interesting discussion and was included in mylot digest. Taking a clue from her discussion, I am going a bit forward from that discussion. Those who are already married would have gone to spend their honeymoon to some wonderful locations. Would like them to share their memorable moments of their honeymoon? Was it memorable or just an average and where did you spend your honeymoon? Did you experience any bitter experience on this trip? Those who are about to get married and yet to get married may like to share their plans – where would they like to spend their honeymoon? It is up to you to share your details of your trips, as long as you feel comfortable, sharing those moments, without any inhabitation. Thanks in advance.

Honeymoon.......ha ha ha ....where there is no honey and no moon... Actually I was very excited about my honeymoon, because it was the first time I was going to enjoy my freedom. We went to Mt. Abu and I enjoyed nature.......and company of my hubby to. We went in November, and in December I was pregnant.....ha ha ha....this is the whole story.

Hello dear......I am sure you will stop complaining about your honeymoon as soon as you read your previous comment and see what a miserable time I had after my marriage.......I am sure after reading my comments you will stop complaining and be happy that you had at least gone for a honeymoon ,soon after marriage...How romantic.....sigh.....And from your comments it is obvious that you were too excited and too busy enjoying nature .....that you missed out on the honey and the moon.....

Rose point to be noted : I was excited about my honeymoon because I was dumb, immature, silly and my head was as empty as big hole....that was the time I thought I was some herione from hindi movie and marriage was aim of life and husband was God, honeymoon was uu la la.... shhhhh.....what nonsense.......rose stop putting mirchi on my mistakes...

Before, I could say, Rose has conveyed or say commented very nicely on your response. Your response tells that there was honey and moon both in your honeymoon, because I understand Mount Abu is wonderful hill station to enjoy the honeymoon and you did have some sweet memories of that trip. It does not matter wheather you were immature or dumb at that time, for that matter we (me including) all were immature and inexperienced when we went for our honeymoon. Thanks very much for candidly sharing those moments.

Hello Dpk.....I do not know whether I am eligible to add comemnts in this discussion ,because I never went on a honeymoon soon after my wedding.......Actually my wedding was an arranged marriage and the D-day was fixed in the month of february after consulting the astrologer....But soon after my wedding I wwas gripped with exam fever as I was in the final year of my post graduation and the exams were scheduled to start in march...So there I was sitting with my books the whole day,and had no time to dream of a proper honeymoon......Everyday the faces of my teachers were looming before me,asking me to study well,as I had (unfotunately) topped the university in my first year of examination.......By the time the exams and Viva was over,it was june,and my honeymoom period also expired ,and the ony relief was that I had cleared my exam with the second rank this time.........There Dpk,now you can rate me + or -............

I have undoubtedly rated you positive for your response and many pieces of information, which I did not know earlier. Does not matter, if you could not go to spend honeymoon, I believe that you would have gone on many other memorable trips, after your marriage, which hopefully were as memorable, as your honeymoon would have been, had you gone. I can understand your situation, when exams were looming large, your first priority would have been your exams, not the honeymoon and you both would have prepared yourself mentally for it. Oh! It is fantastic to feel that I am a friend of University topper and quite a learned and experienced person. Did you have Science subject in your PG? Many thanks for candidly sharing so many details about you, this is the fun and advatage of starting a discussion that one comes to know other aspect of a dear friend too.

Well Dpk you asked only about honeymoon so other trips which we made were not mentioned here......ButDpk its bad manners to start discussions and extract secrets and other aspects of a dear friend without divulging your opinion or experinces about the same......when are you going to share with us about your honeymoon days?

Deepak, you don't want to leave your friends. You wanted to know about them and just keep quiet on yourself. Second thing, how can you think that all people are going for a honeymoon and those who weren’t, what will write. To be honest I haven’t gone. My marriage was taken place in our village and very next day we traveled from there to here. My hubby was joined in a new firm and he hadn’t enough leave so started from there in a hurry. Now also I am not familiar with his relatives because we are visiting there for a short vacation always (I feel guilty for that) and I went for long vacation only on maternity leave. At that time I stayed at my home.

Sree! You have a valid point and I appreciate your though that it is not possible that all of my friends went on to their honeymoon, after marraige. This I realised only after receiving responses and the response of Rose08 was a clear indication for it. It does not matter, if you could not go to spend honeymoon, I believe that you would have gone on some other memorable trips, after your marriage, with your hubby. Many thanks for candidly sharing details about you, this is the fun and advatage of starting a discussion that one comes to know other aspect of a dear friend too.

Hi Sree...These are exactly the questions I asked when I commented on his discussion....Yes I also had the same feelings when I saw this discussion..Infact I asked him if he would mark me "-" for not going for a honeymoon,and whether I am eligible to comment on his discussion.....Yes Sree its not fair...Dpk is always partial in his discussions...sigh....And I am also angry with him.........Any way I am glad we think and act on the same wave length.....Nari sakthi ki jay ho........

I was pregnant for our honeymoon so we decided not to travel. We were perfectly happy taking our honeymoon close to home. We stayed in a hotel and had a wonderful night. We had the whole day and night to just pamper ourselves, I even got to use a jacuzy and sat by the fire place to eat our dinner. We spent most of our time in bed snuggled up together just enjoying the time alone. I think that when our children are older, we are going to be leaving them with the family for a few days while we go out of town and rent a cottage or something. Either way we had a wonderful honeymoon.

You know the ways how to enjoy yourself, as you said that it was not possible to travel so you stayed in a nearby hotel. It shows your nice spirits towards enjoyment of life. I hope it would have been a great pleasure to enjoy jacuzy and had your dinner near fire. I wish that your desire of 'honeymoon, when your children get older, may come out true! Many thanks for sharing candidly about your honeymoon.

Hello deepak! Our honeymoon was wonderful. We eat together, went to the known restaurant in that place and sleep alone together. I can't forget how happy the two of us during that. I won't forget it. My husband is the most wonderful man in the world that he would ask me whatever I want. We ate ice cream together on our hotel room, he ate 1/4 gallon of ice cream, moch flavore and mine is 1/4 gallon of rockyroad flavor and take note, we ate all of them without any leftover..hahaha..see how we love eating. There are many great and funny things that happened to us during our honeymoon but I won't put it in details because the whole page here is not enough..hehhee..

Hello! Aisa! I understand that your honeymoon trip was not too old to forget, therefore, you could recall it without any problem and hopefully you have all the vivid details of it afresh, in your mind. Many Thanks for recalling and sharing those memorable days. It is good to know that you enjoyed each and every moment of your honeymoon with your hubby and enjoyed huge quantities of ice-creams, without left overs. You and your hubby make a great pair, I believe. You can share other details too, no problem, mylot has enough pages to accomodate your side of story......ha! ha! ha!

I have been married twice but only had one honeymoon. For my first wedding, which was in 1968, we had a full blown church wedding and a reception. It wasn't very grand but it was the best we could afford. After the wedding, which took place in my home town, we drove to the town where my new husband was working. About half way there we stopped at Silver Springs and spent the night. We went on a ride on the glass bottom boat and had dinner at a steak house. The next morning we were on our way. Not very exciting I know but it was memorable for us.

Savak! Many Thanks for recalling and sharing those memorable days. 1968 means, it was some 40 years back, but you can still recall that period. I think those moments at the ridge and riding on the boat would be etched in your memory for ever and you won't forget those moments.

Hello my friend dpk262006 Ji, I am very much comfortable to bring out some of the reminicences from our first night, though we never went on any trip like honey-moon etc. These are just fancy and funny looking, basically these moments were designed to cater the need between both spouse that they know each other, but now-a-days that condition does not exisit as both are well known earlier. Coming back to one point of first night out of many, we had decided not to use any slange language after attaining our parent-hood and as such our childrenaged 37,35,33 never use such language even among their friend's circle. may god bless you and have a graet time.

I can understand your situation, specially when it was many years ago. And I am quite sure that you are very particular about using the correct language and you, your hubby and your children do not fail on this account. It feels good to read decent languague. I agree with your point that now a days, many of the couples know each other beforehand, so the excitement of honeymoon is not so high. Many thanks for sharing.

Hello my friend dpk262006 Ji, I am little excited that you have understood the charm of not seeing ay would be spouses, when earlier time, they were managed by social customs and traditions, even earlier time, our marriages were setteled by common persons in a society say Priests (Pandit and Barber (Nau). These marriages used to be lost for much longer life and stayed for ever. There was no question of divorce etc. There were nothing like so called 'Hone-moon'. May God bless You and have a great time.

I have never been married yet, but when that day finally comes, if it does I want to either have my honeymoon on a cruise or in Mexico. I have been to Mexico and loved it very much, but I think I should lean towards the cruise since it is something neither of us has ever done before and it just seems so romantic! But I probably have a long ways before any of that happens.

Stephcjh! I believe that you and your hubby know the ways to enjoy yourself. I think to witness an ocean for the first time would have been a wonderful experience for you, when your hubby was along your side. Many thanks for sharing and dropping in.
