Caroline Stubbs

The Luxury Channel and Quintessentially Travel asked: Why should we send you on 2011′s Ultimate Honeymoon?

This was Caroline’s winning response, an adaptation of Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…

How do I love thee honeymoon? Let me count the ways

How do I love thee honeymoon? Let me count the ways

I love thee to the depth and breadth and height My soul can reach, a honeymoon feels out of sight whilst the ends of recession we meet.I love thee to the level of everyday’s

Most hectic needs, no sun but only candle-light we have recently seen.

I love thee with a passion put to use

in every aspect of my life.

I love thee freely, and we would thrive in sunny light; I would love

thee honeymoon with all my might, Forgetting lost hours spent at work,

I would love thee with the breath, Smiles, tears, of all my life!

And, if you choose me I shall but love you for making me a very happy newlywed wife.

Elizabeth Barrett Browning (1806-1861)
