For most people, getting married is one of the most beautiful days in their lives. Whether you marry at city hall, in a church or on a splendid beach – that day you promise to always be there for your other half, a promise you shouldn’t take lightly. Often, it’s also a moment you celebrate with friends and family. Whether you decide to keep it small and just invite a few of the people who are closest to you or you go all out and invite hundreds of friends, family members and colleagues; that’s totally up to you.
Yet there’s one classic part of a wedding which almost certainly includes just you and your loved one: your honeymoon. Maybe you leave the same evening, maybe you decide to take your holiday a couple of weeks later but one thing’s for sure, during that time away you’ll be able to fully enjoy your life as a newly-wedded couple. No work stress, no everyday chores, only relaxing and (hopefully) a lot of sunshine and good food.
Love is in the air
However, when deciding where to go on honeymoon, things can be a little tricky. Often, people don’t want just any other holiday destination. They want something out of the ordinary, something more luxurious than usual, somewhere they can really relax and take a break. Yet where to start looking? How do you know whether or not a destination is fit for a honeymoon? Well, by relying on an expert’s opinion, of course. To make your life a little easier, Lonely Planet made a list of what they think to be the best honeymoon destinations all over the world. And when looking into it, you’ll notice all of these have one thing in common: they’re all islands. That’s no coincidence, because according to Lonely Planet there’s nothing more romantic than the idea of a deserted, tropical island where you can be (almost) alone. Something we can only agree on. So keep that notepad ready and start taking notes, because maybe you’ll be the next one to get married – or maybe you’re just in need of a relaxing break, like us.
