It seemed like such a good idea at the time.  Get married on the Sunday and go straight to honeymoon from our hotel.  It made sense.  The hotel was near the airport.   Didn't think about the added stress of packing for the honeymoon before the wedding, organising money, travel insurance and so on, on top of the wedding planning.  Getting everything to the hotel.  Organising someone to pick up everything from the hotel.  Getting the kilts back to the hire shop.  Getting my dress home.  Not getting any of the yummy cupcakes.   Not having the time to appeciate the amazing suite in the hotel (2 showers - one with side jets), upstairs TV room,massive bath with a tv on the bathroom wall.  Having to leave so early in the morning that we didn't have time for a proper breakfast.

Then there was the choice of honeymoon destination.  We went to Krakow.   People reacted strangely to this.  Surely we should have been on a beach somewhere, not visiting Auschwitz-Birkenau.  Well, maybe, it wasn't honeymooney but it's what we wanted to do and we both loved Krakow.  The weather was great, the food and drink was so cheap, and we spent a week together. 

And now we're back....
