We are from Australia and are heading to Europe for our first time and our honeymoon in October. Originally we wanted to get in some beach time, but have since found out it's too late in the season to do that, so we are stopping in Dubai to try and get some nice warm weather/laze by the pool first.
I'm not sure this is the right forum as I couldn't find a generic Europe forum, but if anyone has some feedback/ideas on better places to go, length of time etc. that would be most helpful. We are big foodies and that, along with obviously culture and the major tourist spots, are our focus. We def don't want to go to many museums/art galleries- that's not us. We'd prefer wineries/markets/cafes/ food tours/ farms etc. We're not sure if these are the best places for that- so any help would be great!
