Friday, February 13, 1987 THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS


he origin of the
honeymoon is an
unclear set of traditions,
ranging from analogies
about the waning of love, to
the tradition of drinking a
honey mixture at the
wedding which is said to
have killed Attila the Hun.
Whatever its origins, the
modern-day honeymoon
offers a vast array of
destinations for newlyweds.
According to Emily Post's
Complete Book of Wedding
Etiquette, during your
engagement period, you
and your fiance will enjoy
making your honeymoon
plans. Ideally, you will both
want the same type of
honeymoon, but if one of
you wants to go camping
and the other prefers life in
a resort hotel, you must
choose a spot in a resort
area that combines both.
Whatever you do,
Feel free to consult your
parents and friends and
especially other
newlyweds. Also, talk to a
travel agency.
The Jewish News asked
several local travel
agencies about favorite
honeymoon destinations.
Ann Sak, manager of
Leisure Travel at Travel
Unlimited Inc.
"Las Brisas in Acapulco
is lovely. It's quiet with
beautiful weather, your
own separate casitas,
private pool, and your own
pink and white jeep to see
the entire island. It's very
romantic, and not hard to
get to. Hawaii-Kauai is also
very, very beautiful. The
Kauai Hilton is very nice."
Terry Rotenberg,
owner of Gemini Travel.
"It depends on what time
of year people are traveling.
In the summertime I would
say Bermuda is a glorious
place for a honeymoon. In
the wintertime I'd say
Acapulco — where you
know the weather could be
marvelous and wonderful.
In between time I think
cruises are fantastic.
Hawaii is also marvelous
any time of the year."
Rochelle Lieberman,
owner of Gateway Travel
Service, Inc.
"They have a wonderful

honeymoon package at
Caneel Bay in St. John
(Virgin Islands). The
setting is beautiful and
remote. There are private
villas on the beach. Hawaii
is the big place. There are so
many ranges — tourist type
places or small hotels.
Mexico is really a hot seller
because the dollar is strong
there. Or if the couple is
adventuresome and like
sightseeing, they may like
Janet Randolph, owner
of Book Couzens Travel
"Hawaii, Bermuda, and
the Caribbean. Hawaii and
Bermuda are very romantic
and are favorites for
honeymooners. You can go
to Bermuda from April
through November. Hawaii
is great all the time. The
Caribbean is less expensive
and popular too. There are a
lot of destinations in the
Caribbean that don't cost as
much as other places. A
couple can choose the
resorts, the beach, or just do
what they want at their
own pace. The leisureliness
is what's good."
Al Gordon, owner of
Gordon Travel.
"The first one, of course,
would be Bermuda —
unfortunately it's not
terribly inexpensive. It
(Bermuda) seems to
specialize in honeymoons.
Jamaica — there is a place
called The Shaw Park
where they can actually
arrange a wedding right
there in a little garden in
the mountains. The
Pokonos in Pennsylvania
for people who want to
drive, and there are heart
shaped bathtubs. Acapulco
is always a popular spot —
Las Brisas in the
mountains is very popular.
The Hawaiian Islands for
those who want to go far
away. Of course, there's
always Paris, France. Any
two people who are not sure
they're in love with each
other, -I send them on a
cruise down the Seine and
they'll be madly in love
when it's over."
Harold Kalt, owner of
Bee Kalt Travel Service.
"Hawaii, of course, is
extremely popular. Hawaii
is just very enchanting.
People have a desire to go
someplace tropical and the
fact that it's America
makes it more desirable.
