Honeymoons aren't always easy for newlyweds, but one couple from Sweden has had to deal with six natural disasters.
Stefan Svanstrom of Stockholm said that he set out on a four-month honeymoon with his wife Erika and their baby girl on December 6 and immediately got stranded in Munich, Germany, due to one of Europe's worst snowstorms.
After that, he says, they experienced the devastation of a cyclone in Cairns, Australia, and the flooding in Brisbane, and narrowly escaped the bush fires in Perth.
Just before arriving in New Zealand, Mr Svanstrom said the 6.3-magnitude earthquake hit Christchurch and at the couple's last destination, Tokyo, they felt Japan's largest quake since records began.
