Honeymoon Travel

It is synonym for a trip that includes two married people in love with each other. There is increasing marketing aimed at couples for “honeymoon-like” holidays. A honeymoon usually begins few days after the wedding ceremony and it is usually a trip to a place that includes either hot weather, beaches and islands or colder weather on mountain or lakes. Sometimes some couples choose to go on a cruise.

There are many dedicated honeymoon packages offered by travel agents, hotels, cruise liners and almost every other travel vendor. Typically these include “romantic” extras like massages, spa baths, and bottles of champagne.

How much a honeymoon travel costs?

A honeymoon may require careful budgeting. It is an expensive trip and it’s cost can be around the same as the cost of the wedding itself. That’s why it is recommended to include a honeymoon budget in your wedding budget
Your honeymoon can cost any amount that you choose to spend on it, of course. You can even skip it. But many agents are encouraged to suggest options that cost about half of your wedding budget, but that’s just their guide to the rough amount they can get you to part with, not an iron clad rule.

Some travel agents offer honeymoon registries in which the guests can contribute to the cost of the honeymoon as a wedding gift; you could also arrange this informally by asking for cash gifts from guests who want to contribute to the honeymoon. The acceptability of asking for what is always essentially a cash gift varies between cultures, families and couples.

Many people have experienced a culture shock, and those who haven’t, will experience it for sure. It is reaction to finding oneself in an environment that is culturally very different from the one in which one is familiar. There are many different elements of culture that can lead to such an experience. Travel takes one out of one’s comfort zone where things are the way one knows, and people in different parts of the world have different ways of life.

By traveling the chance of experiencing a culture shock is increased. There are many cultural elements that may lead to one. Such as:

1. Language – When two people speak different languages and do not know each other’s languages, they are locked apart from each other, no matter how physically close, and any and all communication is difficult if not impossible.

2. Food – Some food is disgusting in one society are delicacies in another.

3. Hygiene – Some societies put a heavy value on cleanliness, washing themselves daily. Others are more accepting of natural body odors and a bath is a rare event in one’s life.

4. Manners and social norms – The behaviors that are widely accepted in one society may be outright offensive in another. These include everything from greetings and gestures to table manners and business interaction.

5. Technology – Even we live in a high tech world, some countries are still lagging behind.
