Your honeymoon is about making memories, but there are a number of things you need to remember before you leave town.
Are you leaving the country? Be sure you have a universal adapter for all your electronics. Unless you are camping, you’ll want to stop by the bank before your trip and make sure you are well-stocked with small bills for tipping everyone from the porter to the taxi driver, bell man, tour guides, and housekeeping. Having your every need met is no problem at an all-inclusive resort, but otherwise, be armed with snacks for the plane, long sightseeing excursions, days at the beach when you don’t want to move from your spot. Here are a few more things to remember.
