Anubhavi and Sumit, New Zealand

How we met
"Sumit and I chanced upon each other’s profiles on a matrimonial website. Our respective parents seemed to approve of our choice and arranged for us to meet. It turns out that Sumit met close to a hundred girls personally before he finally fell for me."

Honeymoon Planning
"When we were exploring destinations for our honeymoon, our criteria was that the place should be rich with nature. Our initial options were Iceland, Australia, and New Zealand. After thinking things through, we thought that New Zealand would be the best destination for us. Our initial plan was to include Bora Bora in the itinerary as well. However, I fell ill during our trip because of which we had to cut short our honeymoon by about a week and leave the Bora Bora visit for another time."

Honeymoon Highlights
"Our honeymoon highlight, without a doubt, was the 14-km Tasman Bay trek. We were the only two Indians who signed up for this one-of-a-kind activity! It was a crazy experience filled with adventure, and we loved every minute of it! In Napier, we cycled through the vineyards and explored the awe-inspiring tunnel beach. Our other memorable experiences include sitting on a beautiful pier in Auckland, taking part in adventure activities like Shotover Jet, a shark ride and bungee jumping as well as taking a dip in the Onsen Hot Pools."

Best meal of the trip
"Christchurch has this area which is called Mini India. Having daal, roti, and rice, there was the most satisfying experience! The cliché that you can take an Indian out of India but not India out of an Indian couldn’t get more real for us."

Most Romantic Moment
"Cycling down the vineyards singing romantic Bollywood songs at the top of our voices and then letting go of our cycles only to start dancing – this was the most romantic moment we shared. The view was mesmerizing and we could hardly contain our joy!"
