Honeymoon Planning
“Rachit and I love travelling and we wanted to go where we've never been. We locked in on Athens, Mykonos and Santorini in Greece, Budapest in Hungary, Vienna and Hallstatt in Austria and Prague in the Czech Republic. We planned everything ourselves as we wanted to travel at leisure and spend time in places without the rushed itinerary of a package trip.”

Best Meal of the trip
“Rachit and I are complete foodies and we pretty much explored restaurants throughout our trip! The Cafe New York and Iguana bar in Budapest were simply amazing. Aliali Restaurant and Cafe Melevio in Santorini were highlights with their wide variety of scrumptious options. Don't forget to have the Trdlnk (Chimney Cakes) in Prague & Amorino Ice cream which were some of the best we’ve tasted in our entire trip.”
