STOCKHOLM (AP), Apr 05 - Honeymoons aren't always easy for newlyweds, but six natural disasters?
Stefan Svanstrom of Stockholm said Tuesday he set out on a 4-month-long honeymoon with his wife Erika and their baby girl on Dec. 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, Svanstrom says, the 6.3-magnitude earthquake hit Christchurch and at the couple's last destination, Tokyo, they felt Japan's largest temblor since records began.
