Dreaming of Our Honeymoon

Only one month and two days until I walk down the aisle with my best friend and man of my dreams! I cannot believe it.  Since the end of March time has been flying by so quickly, however, I am trying to savor the last month of our wedding anticipation.  Typically when my soon-to-be-husband and I plan our vacations we plan around food first - this might sound like we are gluttons but rather we love good food that is prepared with the freshest ingredients and second of course is architecture, history and beautiful beaches.  Well our honeymoon will consist of both - we will be traveling to France and Italy.  We both love exploring new places so renting a car is essential.  We will begin in Paris and then travel to the Provencal town of Arles, then we are off to Cassis on the Mediterranean.  Next we will cross over the boarder to Italy and visit Portofino and the Cinque Terre.  This might be my dream photography trip!  Now my question to you is have you ever been to Arles, Cassis, Portofino or the Cinque Terre? If so, please I would love your restaurant suggestions!  In the meantime, here is what I would love to pack in my suitcase.

  1. What an incredible trip! I've been to Cinque Terre, but only as a poor college student, so I'm afraid I don't have many worthwhile suggestions. I will say, you are in for some amazing eats! I'm going to Europe this summer too–we'll be there about the same time! I can't wait to see all your photos :)

  2. I can't believe its so soon!! OMG how exciting! Your honeymoon sounds so, so fabulous. I have been to CInque Terre and Portofino which is my most favorite spot in the world. You have to have dinner at Splendido (the hotel up in the mountain/hill)....now they opened a rest. below too but you need to go to the one up in the main building. So divine and the view! and you have to swim in the water in this area....St. margarita is also fun....and some 20 minutes away...if I remember correctly. and Paris!! Heaven!

  3. Such an exciting time for you! And what a dream honeymoon trip!

  4. So, so exciting - it is going to be such an amazing trip! I've been to Portofino + Cinque Terre but honestly can't remember any of the places we ate specifically except La Terrazza and Chuflay at the Splendido in Portofino because we stayed there a couple of nights - both were very good!
