(Newser) – When Stefan and Erika Svanstrom of Stockholm set out on a four-month-long honeymoon in December, they probably weren't expecting to immediately get stranded in Munich during one of Europe's worst snowstorms. They almost certainly weren't expecting to then survive a cyclone in Cairns, Australia. And it's safe to say they definitely weren't expecting their honeymoon, which they took with their baby girl, to include four more natural disasters after that.

Yes, the Svanstroms traveled on to Brisbane (flooding) and Perth (bush fires), the AP reports. They then made it to New Zealand just after the 6.3 earthquake hit—then headed to their last destination, Tokyo, where they felt the 9.0 temblor. (Speaking of honeymoons, Wills and Kate may travel to...)

"They then made it to New Zealand just after the 6.3 earthquake hit" I, too, have survived disasters that occurred before I arrived or after I left.
