Like anything in the world of travel, it would be fair to say that honeymoons have completely changed in shape and size over the last few years.
A beach break may have been the norm some time ago, but now this isn’t necessarily the case. Couples have all sorts of options in the modern-day world and through today’s guide, we will take a look at some of these in-detail.
The city break option
It doesn’t matter whether you are prepping for your honeymoon or a standard getaway – the rise of city breaks is something that we are all fully aware of.
Whether it is London, New York, Prague or any other major tourist city in the world, they are all great options. A city break might not allow you to top up your tan on a beach, but it will present you plenty of luxury hotel options, culture, shopping and pretty much everything else you could expect.
The only piece of advice is to not make your itinerary too full. City breaks tend to offer a lot of different attractions, and if you try to cram everything into your plans you will soon find that you don’t have enough time to enjoy each other’s company. In other words, the principal aim of a honeymoon is eradicated. Instead, try and place your city break alongside a spa escape, just to make sure that you can turn to calmness from time to time.
The road trip option
The thought of spending endless hours on the road wasn’t really a big thing years ago. Now, a huge number of couples are turning to this option.
Again, the list of possible destinations is endless. The United States often grabs the headlines for Route 66 and so on, but Europe also has its fair share of options.
Again, there are caveats though, and try to plan enough stops so your entire trip isn’t spent solely behind the wheel.
The ski resort option
Granted, timing is everything with this next option, and there will be plenty of couples who won’t logistically be able to manage a ski holiday due to the time in which they are looking to travel.
Still, you don’t have to turn to the obvious candidates and if you desperately have a ski getaway on your mind, just look to the other side of the world.
If you’ve never been skiing before, it might not be the most advisable option as there is somewhat of a learning curve. For anyone else, this is one of the most popular ways to spend your first holiday as a married couple.
The vineyard option
For wine enthusiasts out there, this final option might appeal considerably. The world is literally your oyster here and with so many countries in the world being producers of wine, you can make your choice based on other options (and potentially tag city breaks and similar options onto it).
A lot of wineries have accommodation on-site, meaning that you don’t have to search high and low for hotels.
