When I was a just kid, my parents took my family on a cruise to Mexico. We had a great time, I had my first taste of tequila (explaining a lot), and when it was all time to pack up and go, the cruise director notified us that if we wanted to keep our bedsheets, we could purchase them for a reasonable cost.
"Why would anyone purchase bedsheets from a cruise ship," I wondered aloud to my mom. Her response: because some people want to keep the sheets from the first time they boned (her words, not mine) -- and a lot of honeymooning couples go on cruises.
But a couple from the UK took that longstanding tradition to the next freaking level. And I'm not talking they bought a mattress, a bed, or even a permanent room at their honeymoon bed and breakfast. Instead, they bought the whole dang hotel.
Meet the adorable Mark Lee and Gina Lyons.
After their marriage, they decided to take a honeymoon to Sri Lanka.A beautiful island off the southern coast of India. How very British of them.
The island is filled with amazing culture, beautiful beaches, and incredible scenery.

So much so, that they planned on backpacking all around.
