Here’s the round-up of this week’s #TTOT on “Honeymoon Travel!”
Q1 via T_W_O: What destination have you visited that you would recommend for a honeymoon?
- SarahDuff: Mumbo Island in Malawi is one of the most romantic places I’ve ever been to. Perfect for a Robinson Crusoe-style honeymoon
- ae_carhire: Thailand is great for a romantic honeymoon or an adventure style one
- MarinaLMaxwell: Rome or Paris. Cliche, I know, but cliche for a reason
- HolidayChic: Argentina also some some pretty romantic accommodation and cities, plus you can dance the tango too
Reunion Island in Indian Ocean – self-drive in spectacular mountain scenery, swim and snorkel from sandy coast
- whereisyvette: Hvar, Croatia only place regretted visiting solo because it’s a perfect honeymoon destination
- ehalvey: After visiting Montreal over the weekend, it gets my vote if you want a city honeymoon that’s not too far away
- BurnsTammy: Iceland. You can cuddle in the cold and watch the Northern Lights
- luxtravelmavens: I’d recommend Bora Bora or Taha’a in French Poly for a low key honeymoon
Q2 via Tours_By_Locals: Where did you/would you go for the perfect honeymoon?
- MzansiGirl: Would have to be Madagascar, didn’t have an official honeymoon, though had the most amazing time there with the hubby
traveldudes: Island hopping in the Philippines and including Papua New Guinea
- SandiMcKenna: The Orient Express
- christinahegele: Fiji. Gorgeous, quiet, far away (for many), not over-crowded
- holidayhype: Barbados is where we’d go. Walk along the beautiful beaches and have lunch/dinner looking out to the sea
- earthXplorer: Paris – The city of love…and cheese
- Photog_Jnet: Over water bungalow in the Maldives – hands down
- BeyondBlighty: Trek Everest Base camp. Marriage is about supporting each other and overcoming challenges together
- arrivechic: Maui and Kauai. It was even more beautiful than we expected
- BackPackerSteve: No certain destination – the road would be the perfect place. Making an endless RTW sounds best
Q3 via ae_carhire: Would you rather honeymoon straight from the wedding or wait?
- kelaussie29: Straight from the wedding. You’ve just had the perfect day so why go back to the humdrum when you can head off right away?
- traineecloggie: Wait a few days (maybe not quite weeks) to recharge and get ready to explore and experience to the maximum
- cynthiahapidayz: No waiting for me…life is too short and I would already be planning the next holiday
- tripcrafters: Wait for a couple of days, relax a bit and then off to honeymoon destination
- RadissonBluAqua: Immediately. You don’t have to deal with in-laws right after wedding
- WSouldier: A few days after so the stress of wedding planning quickly melts away
- TravelBeacons: Straight from the wedding…no way would I want to just sit around I think it’d be awesome to celebrate right away with time alone
- chatterboxmktng: Have 2-3 days after the wedding to farewell family and friends and regroup, then head off on your honeymoon while it’s still fresh
- FunJoel: Just make your whole marriage a honeymoon, so doesn’t matter when you start
Q4 via HolidayChic: What’s the most unique honeymoon you’ve ever heard of?
- BackpackerBecki: Climbing Kilimanjaro! AWESOME! Better than the typical honeymoon cliches
- DLholidays: A couple got married under water in scuba costume…That was definitely unique
- MagellanPR: Friends of mine went for Harley Davidson honeymoon along California’s old Route 101 – thought that was quite cool
- Cardinaltravel: Heard of a couple that walked across the US for their honeymoon
- MalloryOnTravel: Friends went swimming with whale sharks at Ningaloo Reef in Australia
- holidaychic: I heard of a couple who went volunteering around East Africa for their honeymoon
- TravelandEscape: A long road trip would make a unique honeymoon
- MarkVogler: Friends quit jobs, bought boat and sailed from Baltimore to Sydney via Panama Canal and the Pacific for 8 month honeymoon
- LoisMarketing: Friends from college climbed Mount Everest
Q5 via Boz23: What travel advice would u give someone planning a honeymoon?
- traveldudes: Get on a huge and long trip before getting married to test each other! No better way to find out if you get along
- TourEgyptNet: Go somewhere you’ve never heard of before and embrace their culture
hjortur: Don’t bring your in-laws kitwhelan: Do whatever the eff you want to! And, if it were me, spend more on the trip than the wedding
- roniweiss: Make sure you both want to go there and that it isn’t somewhere that is just a typical honeymoon locale if that isn’t your style
- wsouldier: Leave your phones and computers at home
michaeleball: Don’t aim to make everything perfect, then every imperfection feels like something gone wrong
- scrapbookoflife: Spend less on the wedding, and more on traveling
- Liligo_UK: Relax, who knows the next time you’ll have a whole trip to yourselves
- FoodnFlowers: Do NOT, under any circumstances, tell anyone where you are going
- HTGlobe: Pack light. You’re going to be naked most of the time anyways…well I’d hope so
- AllyTravels: All about sharing experiences. Do something together you’ve both never done. Go someplace you’ve both never gone
- mrsoaroundworld: Plan plan plan ahead and book early. Ask for guests to contribute – do you really need another salad bowl or toaster?
