Hi there, yet another honeymoon help thread. Here are the details and would LOVE some expert travelers input. I'm out of Chicago as base. 1. Short attention span so looking for some good balance between activities/urban and loungy beach time. 2. The Activities part can include anything really - good food scene, Eco-activities, water sports, etc. pretty much anything except museums. 3. I have united miles, enough to get anywhere on award in first or business. 4. We're good with splitting time between locations. I.e. spending 5 days in city then picking up and spending 7 days on beach. Another flight is fine to get there. 5. Like many of you the transit is part of the fun for me. I'm looking to try first/business on the best carriers I haven't been able to. Thinking Lufthansa, Thai, Singapore off the top of my head. Even started playing with routes to get on lh or sq A380. 6. Front runners right now are Thailand or french polynesia. South africa, maldives, Seychelles were tossed around too. To accommodate #5 were willing to Go the long way and connect in Europe. South america coul be done and connect someplace after. As you can probably tell, Domestic US is out, we want far. We travel extensively and want someplace we have never been. This means the following are out: australia, new Zealand, Fiji, Japan, Korea, taiwan, and most of Europe 7. For hotel, Would be using combo of Amex membership points and either Starwood or Hilton points. I have good bank in either but would supplement with CC signip as needed. 8. Looking for fall 2012 trip. Sept, oct preferred. Thanks in advance and look forward to feedback!
