Yep, that is the hot topic in the Kerridge/Parham household. Where to celebrate the first few weeks of wedded bliss.
Having done a few gorgeous Caribbean getaways in the last few years, we are aiming for something a little bit different, a bit once in a lifetime.
As we are getting married in February Mr Parham's first thought was skiing.
Brilliant except that he doesn't ski. He tried once and broke his leg skiing into a brick wall.
I, however, do which is why he suggested it, bless his heart, but while I love skiing and snow and all things mountainy, dropping my new husband off at his ski school every morning while I head off to the grown up slopes does not really appeal. I'm not his mother after all.
So we moved on to bigger ideas, safari perhaps? A definite possibility.
The USA? Loving the tour idea, toying with the New York-Hawaii-Vegas option....
And then I discovered Trailfinders and ordered all seven of their brochures, my poor little postie. I dutifully read them all, punctuating every minute with exclamations such as 'The Galapagos! That would rock!', 'Sydney!!!' 'Belize - that would be phenominal'.
Occasionally these squeals would muster a, 'Sounds interesting' from Steve.
I then found that I could email them direct and get an actual quote (I know, I know, where have I been?).
So I did.
She listened intently and then told me about a 23 day trip which included a cruise around South Africa's coast, an elephant safari, a few nights in a luxurious Cape Town hotel and a week on a 5* beach resort in Mauritius.
"Yep!" I squealed! "It sounds amazing! Please send me through a quote and full details. I can't wait to show Steve!"
So I waited, then suddenly it arrived. Popped in my inbox like a much anticipated Christmas present.
Holding my breath, I opened it and clicked on the attached documents. It all looked so good, the flights, the hotel descriptions and then I saw it.
Right at the bottom.
So we're back to the drawing board.
