Best Honeymoon Destinations You Should Not Miss

Best Honeymoon Destinations You Should Not Miss

Sure, the honeymoon is a period when your partner and you go away to spend some quality time with each other, but that doesn’t mean you can just go anywhere at random. There are so many honeymoon destinations you two can go to and cherish that love you have for each other, so you should definitely take some time to do the research and find the perfect place to start making your first memories as an official married couple. Whether you prefer to be in pure nature surrounded by high mountains or you’d rather visit something more laid back and traditional like exotic beaches, you should know that this globe of ours has a lot to offer.

Cuba

01 Cuba

    This island is among Caribbean’s very finest honeymoon destinations, and is an option you should definitely consider. Just imagine you two being lazy in the Sun the whole day, drinking notorious Cuban cocktails in one of their widely known jazz bars and getting to know their vibrant culture. How amazing would that be?

    Bora Bora

    If you’d like to experience the supreme romance, Bora Bora is the place to go. Considering the fact hotels and resorts are more than capable of providing you with conditions so romantic you’ll probably think you are the only two people left on Earth. Having a private dinner on the beach during a sunset isn’t like anywhere on the planet.

    Venice

    It’s not a coincidence that Casanova was from Italy – the whole country was practically made for young lovers. First of all, the coastal architecture will charm you with its narrow pathways and vividly colored details. If that doesn’t sweep you off your feet, Italian cuisine most certainly will – those people really know how to live.

    Santorini

    04 Santorini

      Another costal spot that will leave you breathless. Santorini in Greece is widely known for its appearance – being there feels like you’re somewhere between earth and sky, and that’s something you really don’t want to miss. It really is an amazing place for newlyweds.

      Mallorca

      There’s so much more to this island than meets the eye. Other than gorgeous beaches and beautiful architecture, Mallorca has an amazing history I’m sure you too will find fascinating. So going there would be like going on a romantic adventure, which is the perfect genre for every honeymoon.

      Rio de Janeiro

      This amazing city is hectic, everything moves fast and life in general has a different pace. If you’re up for having every day be even crazier than the previous one during your whole honeymoon, Rio de Janeiro is the place for you. You two can spend your time horseback riding, visiting astonishing landmarks or snorkeling – practically whatever comes to your mind.

      Hawaii

      Not just Hawaii, but the entire archipelago is the romantic center of our planet. As a matter of fact, you shouldn’t just spend your honeymoon there, you should also get married there! Hawaiian wedding destinations attracted many celebrities, and you two can be one of those couples who had the perfect wedding.

      Ibiza

      08 Ibiza

        If your partner and you have more of a modern view of love, you shouldn’t settle for conventional honeymoon destinations. Ibiza is all about the clubbing culture, and the hottest spot on the planet that gathers internationally known DJs. If you two get a bit tired from all the parties, the other part of the island is a quiet little paradise where the only music you can hear comes from the waves.

        Dubai

        This exciting city is definitely capable of expanding your horizons – there’s nothing like it on Earth. You’ll be able to see everything from monstrous buildings that scream luxury, to wide empty spaces covered in sand. This unusual combination attracts people all over the world, so you’ll be able to witness a true clash of the cultures.

        Maldives

        If you want to be surrounded by clear emerald water, have a private beach entry, and enjoy your glass of champagne surrounded by vast tropical space in undisturbed peace, you should pack your bags immediately and head out to Maldives.

        Paris

        Also known as the city of light and romance, Paris is a must-visit spot for all those who are in love. Whether you want to go sightseeing, visiting museums or enjoying a romantic dinner in a small restaurant while admiring the view on the Eiffel Tower, Paris is the city for you.

        Buenos Aires

        12 Buenos Aires

          Speaking of Paris – did you know that Buenos Aires is also called the Paris of South America? This shouldn’t come as a surprise, especially if we count in the fact that this is the city where tango was born. So, wild nightlife, massages for couples, or a dance lesson – it’s up to you!

          Las Vegas

          If you’ve eloped to get married, chances are that you’re already in Las Vegas. This flashy, luxurious, tacky city in Nevada is a bit more than just a gambling capital. Other than lights and casinos, you can catch many amazing shows, eat in the finest restaurants, and take a gondola ride or a boat trip along the Nile. Besides, I’m sure you’ll enjoy the occasional adrenaline rush when placing a bet.

          Amsterdam

          15 Amsterdam

            This wild city isn’t for every couple. Considering the fact that the Amsterdam keeps playing with legal boundaries, things might get out of control before you know it. However, if you’re not into psychoactive substances, you should rent a place just for the two of you  – it’s cheaper and you’ll have so much more privacy – and truly get to know the city by learning about its landmarks, history, or simply taking long romantic walks along the intriguing narrow streets.

            Bali

            This is a mysterious island of dragons and pirates, and it couldn’t be more inviting to all adventurers worldwide. There are all types of honeymoon destinations in Bali, but even huge hotels managed not to disturb its nature, which makes it a highly spiritual place that’s simply tailored for newlyweds.

            Puerto Rico

            Wouldn’t you like to start your morning with the finest cup of coffee in the whole world? Well, you can’t find a better place than Puerto Rico for this small ritual. Another Caribbean destination for newlyweds that will definitely astonish you with the quality of food, politeness of staff and – of course – carnivals, which you simply must participate in.

            Aruba

            Couples seem to be royalty here. Aruba is a welcoming island that gives a very special treatment to all couples, especially newlyweds. Just imagine – your partner and you sunbathing in a perfectly sandy beach, while everyone around you is practically throwing all kinds of perks, free drinks and complimentary commodities at you.

            Costa Rica

            Advertising

            19 Costa Rica

              Another island of the Caribbean archipelago that’s practically a paradise for couples – but this one is for the daring. Costa Rica has a really rich landscape and ecotourism is quite popular here, so adventure will await you around every corner. Whatever you decide to do – bungee-jumping, zip-lining or mountain biking – I’m sure you’ll have lots of fun.

              Barcelona

              If you’d like to get to know how spirit of Southern Europe, you should know that Barcelona picked up only the best. Therefore, you two should hop on a scooter, and start visiting wonderful beaches. Besides, is there anything more romantic than driving into a sunset?

              Qatar

              Late mornings, having breakfast in bed, being lazy and enjoying the company of your loved one – that’s what Qatar is all about, well, Doha to be precise. Every detail will be arranged before you even get there, and everything you two will have to do is relax and unwind.

              Tahiti

              22 Tahiti

                If you’d like to celebrate your love for each other in a bungalow, so that the first thing you see when you wake up is the horizon, don’t bother having second thoughts and go straight to Tahiti. You can either join groups doing entertaining activities or simply enjoy your private escape with no one to bother you.

                London

                If you’d like a cultural epiphany for two, London is your city. You can even go pretty cheap because there’s no entry fee to their museums! So, find a cozy little place, get settled and go to the British Museum, National Gallery, Natural History Museum and Science Museum, and learn about the unique exponents and see the world’s finest exhibitions.

                Agra

                India is really something else – their architecture, lifestyle, religious system and food is unlike anywhere in the world. If you need a romantic getaway, visiting Agra will feel like you’re on a different planet. While you’re there, make sure you don’t miss Taj Mahal – it will leave you breathless.

                Tanzania

                25 Tanzania

                  Beginning your married life with a hot air balloon ride isn’t a bad idea, is it? That would be just the start if you decide to visit Tanzania, because you can have a nice romantic dinner in the middle of wilderness afterwards, sunbathe on one of amazing Indian Ocean beaches or go off on a safari adventure.

                  Belize

                  If you’d like your happily ever after to have a fairy tale beginning, I believe you won’t be able to find a place that’s nowhere near to what Belize has to offer. You can choose whether your honeymoon will be interactive, e.g. if you want to spend time with other couples, or you’d prefer it to be intimate and isolated. The landscapes are simply dreamy.

                  Vienna

                  This city of classical music, fine art and cultural events could be the exact thing you’re looking for. The seductive architecture will take you back to the age of Baroque, Art Nouveau and the Gothic era, and you’ll feel like you’re in the middle of a fairy tale.

                  Malta

                  After the wedding, most couples are in need of a pampering treatment. All that buildup stress needs to be gotten rid of, and Malta is the perfect place for it. Once you land there, you’ll get a feeling that the whole place is tailored for newlyweds – and that’s exactly what it is. Delicious treats, thoughtful amenities and relaxing massages… Just sit back and relax.

                  Istanbul

                  28 Istanbul

                    Being the link between Asia and Europe, Istanbul is rich in incredible historic sites that will leave you asking for more. Learning about their oriental tradition and enjoying their unusual foods will create a strong bond between you and your lover, that’s for sure. Also, they have a unique architectural style that will leave you breathless.

                    Iceland

                    If you’d like to enjoy your glass of champagne in a hot tub surrounded by untouched wilderness, you should definitely pick Iceland for your honeymoon destination. Waterfalls, volcanos and geysers are just some of the things you’ll be able to see on this adventure, so it’s not something you want to miss out on.

                    One last piece of advice – try not to get to distracted with all those wonders around you, so that you can take a photo or two, which will help you cherish those wonderful yet-to-be memories. Each of these honeymoon spots is amazing in its own way, and it’s up to you to pick out the one which will be absolutely perfect for the two of you. Bon voyage!

                    How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

                    How to Get out of a Rut: 12 Useful Ways to Get Unstuck

                    Have you gotten into a rut before? Or are you in a rut right now?

                    You know you’re in a rut when you run out of ideas and inspiration. I personally see a rut as a productivity vacuum. It might very well be a reason why you aren’t getting results. Even as you spend more time on your work, you can’t seem to get anything constructive done. While I’m normally productive, I get into occasional ruts (especially when I’ve been working back-to-back without rest). During those times, I can spend an entire day in front of the computer and get nothing done. It can be quite frustrating.

                    Over time, I have tried and found several methods that are helpful to pull me out of a rut. If you experience ruts too, whether as a working professional, a writer, a blogger, a student or other work, you will find these useful. Here are 12 of my personal tips to get out of ruts:

                    1. Work on the small tasks.

                    When you are in a rut, tackle it by starting small. Clear away your smaller tasks which have been piling up. Reply to your emails, organize your documents, declutter your work space, and reply to private messages.

                    Whenever I finish doing that, I generate a positive momentum which I bring forward to my work.

                    2. Take a break from your work desk.

                    Get yourself away from your desk and go take a walk. Go to the washroom, walk around the office, go out and get a snack.

                    Your mind is too bogged down and needs some airing. Sometimes I get new ideas right after I walk away from my computer.

                    3. Upgrade yourself

                    Take the down time to upgrade yourself. Go to a seminar. Read up on new materials (#7). Pick up a new language. Or any of the 42 ways here to improve yourself.

                    The modern computer uses different typefaces because Steve Jobs dropped in on a calligraphy class back in college. How’s that for inspiration?

                    4. Talk to a friend.

                    Talk to someone and get your mind off work for a while.

                    Talk about anything, from casual chatting to a deep conversation about something you really care about. You will be surprised at how the short encounter can be rejuvenating in its own way.

                    5. Forget about trying to be perfect.

                    If you are in a rut, the last thing you want to do is step on your own toes with perfectionist tendencies.

                    Just start small. Do what you can, at your own pace. Let yourself make mistakes.

                    Soon, a little trickle of inspiration will come. And then it’ll build up with more trickles. Before you know it, you have a whole stream of ideas.

                    6. Paint a vision to work towards.

                    If you are continuously getting in a rut with your work, maybe there’s no vision inspiring you to move forward.

                    Think about why you are doing this, and what you are doing it for. What is the end vision in mind?

                    Make it as vivid as possible. Make sure it’s a vision that inspires you and use that to trigger you to action.

                    7. Read a book (or blog).

                    The things we read are like food to our brain. If you are out of ideas, it’s time to feed your brain with great materials.

                    Here’s a list of 40 books you can start off with. Stock your browser with only the feeds of high quality blogs, such as Lifehack.org, DumbLittleMan, Seth Godin’s Blog, Tim Ferris’ Blog, Zen Habits or The Personal Excellence Blog.

                    Check out the best selling books; those are generally packed with great wisdom.

                    8. Have a quick nap.

                    If you are at home, take a quick nap for about 20-30 minutes. This clears up your mind and gives you a quick boost. Nothing quite like starting off on a fresh start after catching up on sleep.

                    Advertising

                    9. Remember why you are doing this.

                    Sometimes we lose sight of why we do what we do, and after a while we become jaded. A quick refresher on why you even started on this project will help.

                    What were you thinking when you thought of doing this? Retrace your thoughts back to that moment. Recall why you are doing this. Then reconnect with your muse.

                    10. Find some competition.

                    Nothing quite like healthy competition to spur us forward. If you are out of ideas, then check up on what people are doing in your space.

                    Colleagues at work, competitors in the industry, competitors’ products and websites, networking conventions.. you get the drill.

                    11. Go exercise.

                    Since you are not making headway at work, might as well spend the time shaping yourself up.

                    Sometimes we work so much that we neglect our health and fitness. Go jog, swim, cycle, whichever exercise you prefer.

                    As you improve your physical health, your mental health will improve, too. The different facets of ourselves are all interlinked.

                    Here’re 15 Tips to Restart the Exercise Habit (and How to Keep It).

                    12. Take a good break.

                    Ruts are usually signs that you have been working too long and too hard. It’s time to get a break.

                    Beyond the quick tips above, arrange for a 1-day or 2-days of break from your work. Don’t check your (work) emails or do anything work-related. Relax and do your favorite activities. You will return to your work recharged and ready to start.

                    Contrary to popular belief, the world will not end from taking a break from your work. In fact, you will be much more ready to make an impact after proper rest. My best ideas and inspiration always hit me whenever I’m away from my work.
