Honeymoon - Check Natural Disasters- Check

This is not my kind of honeymoon.  Before planning your next vacation, check and make sure that these people are staying in Stockholm. 

A Swedish couple's honeymoon struck disaster six times - with the couple witnessing floods in Australia, destruction in Japan and the earthquake in Christchurch.

During a four-month trip, newlyweds Stefan and Erika Svanstrom and their baby girl Elinor endured a snowstorm in Munich, Germany, a cyclone that struck Cairns, Australia, the floods of Brisbane, Australia, the wildfires in Perth, Australia, the earthquake that hit Christchurch, New Zealand, and then the earthquake in Japan:
The family returned to Stockholm on March 29 after a much calmer visit to their last destination China.
But Mr Svanstrom – who also survived the devastating Boxing Day tsunami that hit southeast Asia in 2004 – said the marriage was still going strong.
He added: “I know marriages have to endure some trials, but I think we have been through most of them.
“We’ve certainly experienced more than our fair share of catastrophes, but the most important thing is that we’re together and happy.
