Usually when brainstorming my next blog idea I try to come up with something practical or purposeful. However this time it just came to me: why not be fantastical for once? This may also have to do with my current browsing of the travel section on Pinterest while simultaneously trying top plan a vacation on a budget. So with that in mind, today I am bringing to you dream worthy honeymoon locations. No I am not bringing you budget conscious tips or realistic getaways, today I am dreaming up my wildest honeymoon ideas, filled with places most of us may never get to see. So step away from the wedding DIYs and seating charts for a minute because I’m taking you with me. After all, don’t we deserve to escape reality for a minute?
Incredibly exotic, Thailand has a variety of new experiences to offer. You can go on an adventure through the bamboo forest, just relax in a hammock, or even ride an elephant! Take in the natural beauty when cruising down the river in a Traditional Thai long boat or take in a customary dance show. With so much history and natural beauty, it is hard not feel the romance in the air. Stay at the Four Seasons Tented Resort for the ultimate in luxury and exclusivity. The resort is stunning!
Set in the Society Islands of French Polynesia, Bora Bora is as close as you get to paradise. It is surrounded by a lagoon and a barrier reef. This makes for incredible sparkling turquoise waters and great scuba diving. Perhaps you prefer to just kick back and enjoy the islands beauty from your over water bungalow. Much of the resorts have over water bungalows. This allows for a luxurious intimate setting for you and your mate. Bored of the sea? ( I don’t see how you could be) If so check out the ancient volcano Mount Otemanu or take a helicopter ride around the island to get a bird’s eye view.
How about a European getaway? Santorini is a picturesque blue and white town by the Aegean Sea. It is a vision straight out of movie. ( In fact it probably has been in a few movies.) This island off of Greece was formed from a volcanic explosion centuries ago. You can discover the beautiful beaches or take a boat ride around the island. Take a donkey ride up the hilly town to get to know the locals or check out the ancient ruins. Oh and don’t forget to enjoy the native Greek cuisine! Europe always feels romantic to me, and Santorini is definitely on my bucket list!
This certainly would not be your typical honeymoon, but Iceland has a lot to offer along its dramatic coastline. If you’re a couple that loves the majesty of nature, this fantasy honeymoon is for you. There are roaring waterfalls, geysers, and ice capped volcanoes. One thing you can’t miss if you make it to this dreamy location? The geothermal spas at the Blue Lagoon. This natural spa is a relaxing must! But if you want to get REALLY adventurous stay at Hotel Kakslauttanen where you can sleep in a glass igloo for a mind blowing view of the Northern Lights. This is a once in a lifetime experience!
These are places most of us have never envisioned or thought we can only fantasize about going. But they are exotic, romantic and perfect for sharing with the love of your life. If you have the opportunity to jet set to one of these places, don’t hesitate! And feel free to send me a postcard!!
