Honeymoon Must Haves

My husband and I went on a whirlwind honeymoon trip (only 3 days 2 nights!) in Hong Kong. Our experience was nonetheless memorable. I'll probably make another post on this, but for the meantime, these are the things that I believe are the must-haves during a honeymoon:
  • camera--Document each moment! Would you believe we actually brought 3 cameras - 1 film camera, 1 digital camera and 1 video camera? :)
  • airline tickets and passports -- Pretty self explanatory...
  • enough money -- do bring some US dollars, which can usually be easily converted to local currency. Don't forget to bring some small change in the local currency for tips and small purchases.
  • credit cards -- I usually pay in credit card if I can so I don't run out of cash when I'm abroad.
  • a passport envelope to keep your money, passport and other important documents close to you.
  • Photocopies of passport and important docs, in case you lose them.
  • maps
  • locks for your suitcase and for closets, if possible.
  • comfortable but versatile shoes -- anticipate a lot of walking!
  • some toiletries -- especially if not all shampoos/soaps/lotion suits you.
  • cardigan or jacket -- in case weather turns chilly
  • backpack -- to put your jacket/cardigan, some food, drinking water etc, when you go out
  • jeans -- goes with any top and any shoes, and goes anywhere!
  • more than enough underwear -- in case you can't wash, you'll still have some extra
  • emergency meds -- OTC meds for headache, diarrhea, allergies and other emergencies. Also your regular maintenance medications, if any (They may not honor the prescription from your local doctor). In case symptoms do not go away, do see a doctor.
  • rubbing alcohol -- All around sanitizer. It's pretty easy to find here in the Philippines, but not as easy to find in Hong Kong. Not very sure about other countries, though.
Of course, each other! Do enjoy your first trip as husband and wife!
