Packing for Your Honeymoon

I suggest packing for your honeymoon at least a week in advance.  Especially if you’re leaving for your honeymoon the day of or day after your wedding.  By packing in advance, you’ll be less likely to forget those important items.

Honeymoon Checklist
Here are a few must-haves you won’t want to forget:

-Drives License or Passport (Yes, you need a passport for the Carribean.)
-Sun Block
-Sunglasses
-Camera and extra batteries
-Prescription Medicines
-Cash/Traveller’s Checks/Credit Cards
-Toothbrush
-Books
-Voltage Converter (if you’re travelling outside the USA)
-List of Addresses (to send postcards)
-Stamps

Honeymooning in Napa Valley

My husband and I just got back from celebrating our anniversary in Napa Country and had a wonderful trip.  The idolic location makes it an ideal spot for celebrating a honeymoon or significate anniversary or birthday. 

We stayed at the beautiful, Wine Country Inn and met several couples on their honeymoon. The inn is located on a hill overlooking the vineyards.  There are beautiful flower beds throughout the grounds, plus a secluded swimming pool.

While we were there we visited a few wineries, including the new Castello di Amorosa winery.  This winery was built in the style of a Tuscany castle and was well worth the tour.  The owner, Daryl Sattui, spend years researching the design and hired expert stone craftsman to ensure an authentic look.  Throughout the castle, are orginial doors, stonework, and artwork from Tuscany.  The castle even has a church and it has been rumored in the future it may be possible to get married in the castle’s chapel.

When planning our trip, we used NapaValley.com to find lodging, restaurants, etc.  Two restuarants that I would recomend are the Rutherford Grill and Tra Vigne
