Honeymoon Destinations

In my last post I mentioned that my fiancé and I are getting married in less than five months.  Wedding planning is going very well.  In fact we are ahead of schedule.  In addition to the church, venue, dress, our photographer, cinematographer, transportation, hair and makeup artists have also been booked.  What is left are the smaller details like invitations, flowers, packaging for the wedding favours and a few other things.

One thing we haven’t finalized yet is where we will go on our honeymoon.  I know that the main reason why we haven’t decided on a honeymoon destination is because we’re actually going to go next year.  We have six other weddings in addition to ours this year and we just don’t have the time.  But perhaps another reason why we’re procrastinating with this decision is because we both love to travel, so to choose just one destination or two for our honeymoon is proving to be an impossible task.

Some possible locations we have discussed are Greece, Saint Lucia, Venice, Tuscany, Monaco and the south of France.

I’ve always wanted to see the Greek Islands (Santorini in particular).  The white sculptured villages nestled among the cliffs with the deep blue sea below is just paradise.

  

From the beginning of our discussions, we decided we didn’t want to sit on a beach all week long.  We wanted to go someplace where we could explore an old town, try new food, interact with the locals and be able to venture off and see and do things.  Saint Lucia does not exactly offer that.  But I think the latest season finale of The Bachelor might have something to do with why this is on our list 😉

Venice is one of my fiancé’s picks. He claims the city is sinking and we should visit it before it does…

 

 

 

Ah Tuscany–many people would think there’s not much to do there.  But renting a bicycle and exploring the villages in Chianti and tasting great Tuscan wines sounds like my idea of a relaxing honeymoon.  I believe the next honeymoon destination is also my fiancé’s idea.  All I have to say is Monaco=Formula 1.

Lastly, the south of France (Provence & the Côte d’Azur) seems to have everything we’re looking for; white sand beaches, sunny weather, historic sites, stone villages, and amazing french wine.

Well, it might be a while before we finally decide where to go, but it’ll definitely be a trip worth writing about.

    Santorini all the way stayed there in September of last year and it was absolutely amazing.. The island isn’t huge but has a ton to offer..we stayed in oia but found it extremely easy to get around the Island.. If you do go don’t bother with the wine tour you can literally just drive to each in like 20 min as they are all on the same side of the island side by side.. When going to fira be sure to stop in at luckys for a gyro for luch it’s absolutely amazing
    Santorini is probably the best most intimate choice on your list
