Honey, Let’s Go on Honeymoon
Do you want to make your honeymoon more special? Good preparation is crucial
So you are husband and wife at last: You’ll certainly wish to relax, completely unwind, enjoy time with your loved one and, of course, your experience as Mr and Mrs must be unforgettable. This can happen if you and your beloved one plan and discuss your honeymoon beforehand, based on what you really like to do. We take a look at top honeymoon trends in 2013 to inspire you in planning your dream honeymoon.
Adventure & Excitement
If you are an active couple, adventure trips can be an unforgettable getaway. Enjoy a nice experience together spent on safari, learning how to surf, diving to beautiful islands, hiking nearby peaks, horseriding together, or camping at your favourite remote and breathtaking location. All the activities will bring both of you closer together and one day you can say, “Do you remember?”, when you talk about your honeymoon.
Travel to a romantic boutique hotel for a luxurious and charming honeymoon. Boutique hotels have fewer than 100 rooms, offer personalized service and have innovative décor. This has also been a popular honeymoon option in 2013.
Spend your honeymoon on blue and turquoise seas in luxury boats with only a few dozen cabins that can take you to spots that aren’t as much fun to reach via planes, trains and automobiles. Your honeymoon on the sea can be relaxing, romantic and exotic. Imagine that you and your love are sailing away together to a golden sunset, plus secluded island beaches, dining on a balcony overlooking the ocean and pampering your body with spa treatments for two. You can also take many photos from different exotic locations instead of just one. With dozens of ships and itineraries available, there are so many places to see and things to do.
Country-hopping has become a trend this year for couples intent on maximizing their few days away from the office and who cannot seem to decide between several options. If you plan wisely, you can go to the beach, the city or even the country. Just make sure you look at all transportation options so you save time and maximize your travel capabilities.
If you love green environments you can choose to vacation at an eco-resort. An eco-friendly honeymoon offers the perfect blend of romance and eco-responsibility. Stay at green hotels that use solar power and have a minimal influence on their surroundings and you will make a commitment to each other and the Earth at the same time.
You can spend your first day as a husband and wife at a private place, with only each other for company. Whether it is a collection of bungalows on the beach or a cute countryside house, a private villa can be a good alternative honeymoon.
The Sporting Life
A honeymoon spent together seeing your favourite world-class sporting event in person can be a thrill, even if you don’t necessarily follow the team.
If you and your love are “foodies”, then make that the focus of your honeymoon. Choose where to travel by the type of cuisine you want and the foods that you’d like to try. Whether it’s a restaurant with a 12-course tasting menu, a wine bar with a well-versed sommelier, or a market with the freshest local produce, take advantage of your honeymoon abroad by letting your appetite be your guide.
