We’re leaving for our honeymoon next week! For those of you who don’t know, we’ll be spending a week in the UK and Ireland. We’re only going to be able to go to London, Edinburgh, and Dublin (two nights in each city), but it’s going to be a blast!
The problem is that we only have two nights in each city! We’ve decided not to set an itinerary (other than when we have to been on planes) so that we can be more spontaneous. However, there are a few things we know we want to see. The Tower of London, the Guinness factory, and Edinburgh Castle are all on the list.
When we first started planning the trip months ago, the Doctor Who Experience was in London too, so we thought that we would definitely do that because, well, we’re us. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a permanent thing, so it’s now back in Cardiff (which we tried to add to our trip, but the Honeymoon Time!extra cost was prohibitive).
I’m taking my new camera with me, which makes me a bit nervous, but I really want to get a lot of good photos. Thankfully, the only attempted theft incident I’ve had while traveling was some guy trying to nonchalantly take my luggage out of my hands in Beijing (why he thought that would work is beyond me). Hopefully we won’t have any issues while we’re on our honeymoon.
I’ve been to London before, but not the other cities on our itinerary, and John hasn’t been at all. Our plans, if you care to call them that, are to mostly see a lot of historical sites and eat a lot of pub food. For those of you who have been to (or reside in) the UK or Ireland, do you have any must-see (or must-eat) recommendations for us? Any general travel tips?
