My sister Connie and her “fiance” Arne are entering a contest to win a Honeymoon Tester trip around the world sponsored by the Irish Times and runawaybrideandgroom.com.
Arne de Beaufort and Connie Balcher are in love and want to share their joy with the world and particularly people who want to discover romantic getaways all over the globe.
“We are not your average contestants… Look at our ages.
Although we’ve never been to Ireland, we are inspired by the writings of James Joyce, especially Ulysses and Dubliners.”
They are entering the Runaway Bride & Groom contest — which ends April 7 — and would love it if you vote for them:

“We are also great fans of the Irish custom on celebrating a honeymoon with a bottle of Meade (Bunratty Meade in this case).
This honey-based drink was believed to have powers of virility and fertility, and it became custom for bride and groom to drink Meade for one full moon after their wedding, hence the word “honeymoon”. (from the bottle)
We also want to represent other honeymooners, especially the BabyBoomers.”
