“Let’s scuba dive the Great Barrier Reef,” Mike said with the wide eyes of a young Jacques Cousteau.
“Ooooh yes!” I replied. “And we should stop in Kauai on the way and helicopter the Grand Canyon of the Pacific.”
This was a honeymoon, after all, a time when you can dream big and worry about the bills and vacation days later. Just as the wish list was running off the page, Mike asked me, “What if we did them all?” It seemed unfathomable, and I chuckled at the thought. “No seriously,” he said. “We’ve got our health, some savings, and each other. Will there ever be a better time?”
That night we started the ‘HoneyTrek’–our honeymoon and journey around the world. Six-and-a-half years later, we’ve honeymooned on seven continents, in 53 countries, and fallen in love with hundreds of destinations.
Narrowing our favourite honeymoon destinations down to a top 10 was no easy task. But when it comes to a perfect blend of gorgeous landscapes, interesting cultures, and romantic vibes, these are some of our absolute favourite honeymoon destinations.
Wherever you go on your honeymoon, celebrate the sunsets, feel your heart race, laugh at the bumps in the road, and create moments you’ll never forget.
