Bliss – just Kurt & me!

Their wedding had fairytale touches and their honeymoon was even better: three dream destinations, five-star hotels, candlelit dinners, exotic shopping trips, a balloon ride in Egypt and lazy summer nights with cocktails beside the turquoise waters of the Maldives Islands.

‘‘For three weeks I just rested and had a good holiday,’’ a tanned Kurt says. ‘‘It was the longest holiday I’ve had since I wrote matric.’’

The Maldives was wife Dunay’s choice of destination – and it was all she’d dreamed of. ‘‘It may sound selfish but I had Kurt all to myself for three weeks,’’ she says.

They stopped over In Dubai first, staying in a suite on the rooftop terrace of Sol Kerzner’s Atlantis Hotel. The first night included a traditional dhow trip on the canal and a romantic dinner in a French restaurant. Three days later they flew to the Madives.

The last thing Kurt wanted to do on his honeymoon was sing but Dunay persuaded him to sing karaoke with some Russian tourists. ‘‘They couldn’t believe what they were hearing,’’ he says.

After the Maldives they spent their last 10 days of honeymoon in Egypt. ‘‘Egypt may not sound romantic but I’d dreamt of an Egyptian holiday since I was in Grade 7,’’ Kurt says.
