We may not have liked the way it was handled; but it was our parents and our immediate family who decided that it should be so. They hired a wedding planner to do all the planning, from the reception, the church, the food, to the cake details, except for the honeymoon. The honeymoon was definitely something we wanted to have a say in. So we made it clear that we would be the ones planning the entire honeymoon, but to be honest, we didn’t have a plan or a preference at all. My husband and I decided to have an unplanned honeymoon so that it would be different, we wanted to be adventurous rather than having an old fashioned honeymoon style.
To start, we talked about different places to go and getting ideas from everyone, some said, Spain, Barcelona, Rome, Paris in conclusion the typical places for honeymooners for romanticism and everything. Since we have been to those places and don’t get me wrong, they are beautiful and charming places, we were still looking for something different for a change. So after all the thinking and everything we decided to go to Florida without planning it, we packed our bags, got the tickets, a few phone calls, and flew to Miami, Florida. Our worries started when we arrived at the Miami airport, we didn’t know what to do or where to go as our final honeymoon destination; We were basically just married exploring a new world! But this was an exciting adventure and what we were looking for.
Finally my husband made some inquiries with different people and via the internet he found a transportation company called Florida Shuttle Transportation; made an instant reservation for us to travel to a city called Naples which we have heard and studied is a wonderful and relaxing place; it’s about a two hour ride on the shuttle from Miami.
When we first entered the Naples area, I thought to myself that this was perfect for me; from the beach to the buildings tranquility and simple serenity. Heard it’s one of the best honeymoon spots with white sand beaches. Also dine while watching the sunset on the Mexico golf course.
We enjoy walking along the beach while we breathe the sanitized air that it is very rare to breathe this type of air where we live. We stayed at the hotel in Naples called Marco Beach Ocean Resort. Indeed a great accommodation for us, we always received a warm welcoming smile and when they found out we were there for the honeymoon they upgraded our room to be the best room with no increase in price; we had the elegant Mediterranean style suite with a patio and a nice view of the ocean to make it more romantic. We really love it.
We were very pleased from our arrival at the Miami airport, until the transportation provided to the final destination. After the calm and quiet scene in Naples, Florida, we decided to go to Miami for a fun and easy nightlife; of course, I couldn’t put aside my favorite “shopping” activity. I really enjoyed shopping at the Aventura Mall in Miami even though it was raining, it didn’t stop us from doing our thing.
In fact, Naples and Miami Florida are two great places to visit. I highly recommend Naples for the romantic part of your honeymoon and Miami for the rest of your stay for fun and shopping. Have fun all you newlyweds!
