A honeymoon destination?

Woohoo! My friend Mike, whom I've known for more then a decade (yet met only twice), is coming over with his new bride for a honeymoon downunder, all the way from Seattle. Being baby-bound, I'm not going to be able to take them out on the town (since I don't "express"); I'm also too unfit to offer a game of Ultimate (and anyway I gave my frisbee to the Salvation Army) - but I'm sure we can fit in a lunch or two somewhere in the neighbourhood.

The last time we had overseas visitors, it was another friend and his new bride, on their honeymoon (from the UK). Could be a pattern here...

Maybe New Zealand is the new Hawaii, which was the new Niagra Falls.

Hey, don't I count as an overseas visitor? Or are they staying with you?

Say hello to Mike from me (if he remembers me). And congratulations.

flying kiwi: no you don't, 'cos you're from here. I'll tell Mike you said hi.

Is it still a honeymoon if you take your kids?

Elopers generally go for Nevada, quickie marriages on demand, and Maryland, no blood tests.
Back in the day, if you got married in Cheboygan you had the honneymoon in Niagra Falls.
