SERIOUSLY as if planning a wedding wasn’t obsessive enough, try choosing where to go on your honeymoon. I mean the wedding is the wedding. It needs to be as near to perfect as possible, obviously, but in the end it’s like maybe 8 hours long. Granted, it is truly one of the most important days of your life… but the honeymoon. The honeymoon goes on for days, and if you’re lucky perhaps weeks and weeks. yum.
We had a rough time making a decision, I can tell you that. But harder was honestly finding amazing places to visit in the countries we were considering. Generic internet research wasn’t working for me and I usually consider myself quite savvy in this department.
Of course you can go to the Four Seasons pretty much anywhere and have an amazing vacation. (I was tempted by their new resort opening in Bora Bora this September). But you can do that when you’re old and rich too. We wanted something interesting.
So I realized, let professionals do the research for you. And I don’t mean a travel agent. Here are a few great resources I’ve relied on:
