Maldives. Japan. 6,800 km apart.
Quite absurd it is to visit both countries in nine days; yet that’s what we are doing, on our honeymoon no less.
These are obviously two separate trips, but we are doing them back-to-back. Since we both have a nine-day break and our package to Maldives only last for five days, we are tagging a four-day trip to Northern Kyushu right afterward.
I am actually not a fan of resorts, but the sun and beach combination is a pretty safe combination for honeymoon.
Because Fukuoka is only a 3-hour flight from Hong Kong and I have always wanted to stay at a high-end ryoken with private onsen (hot spring). Although many people warned us about the Fukushima nuclear power plants meltdown, it seems a little silly to worry about radiation from a source that is more than a thousand kilometres away.
