Because we are planning our wedding in Scotland from London, we used a lot of our holiday allowance on travelling back and forth. So we don't have enough days left this year for a honeymoon and have post poked it until April next year. Instead we are going on a week long minimoon straight after the wedding.
The original plan was to hike along Hadrian's wall. From Newcastle to C. This is definitely something we want to do at some point but I have started to worry it's not ideal for our minimoon. For one, I am not that fit at the moment and the longest day will require us to walk 15 miles in one stretch. I'm having nightmares of getting a blister in the middle of the hike and being stranded in the middle of no-where. I am also starting to regret the fact that I will be wearing a huge back-pack and getting all sweaty, on a holiday where ideally I want to feel as sexy as possible. Finally I am worried we will be abdolutely exhausted after the wedding. And the timeline rquires us to leave the next day. However I do think this would be a great way to bond. And it encompasses a lot of the things we love.
We have stumbled across an alternative option for our minimoon recently though. We both enjoy watching the tv-series Outlander. And I will actually be walking down the aisle to Skyboat, the theme tune. We have found a map with all the filming locations of the tv-series in Scotland. Lots of castles, quaint villages, nature. So we are now considering changing our minimoon to touring these locations by car.
Which one would you choose?
