Calling all brides to be on the lookout for the perfect honeymoon locations!
I’m delighted to be blogging for Wedding Ideas, picking out the finest hidden honeymoon locations available – from the fantastic to the charming, the quaint, the gorgeous, the awe-inspiring, the affordable, the adventurous, the eco-friendly, the deluxe, the blow the budget – all the most memorable honeymoons! I’ve been on my own recently – across several continents (all in the name of research!) and even covered my extended honeymoon for CNTraveller. I was lucky enough to go to the Caribbean, on safari in Africa, to Thailand and finishing it all off with a stop in Bali… Dreamy! I’m really happy to join the team as Travel Editor and will be posting regular updates on the best and most romantic honeymoons the planet has to offer. So join me for some inspiration, or just to dream.
A hidden honeymoon should be something unique – so here’s a quick round up of ten places (spanning the range of budget from bargain to bling!) I have come across on my travels which really stuck with me – because of their unusual location, their charm, the romance factor and just because they stand out from anywhere else for all sorts of reasons…
