Pretend 1st Date
Go to the same place you had your first date as a married couple. So much nostalgia! Order the same food, get some wine to wash it all off and have fun!Bizarre foods and adventurous dining Taste your way through the strangest delicacies the world has to offer: from black eggs cooked in the volcanic sulphur springs of Japan to scorpion kebabs from the night markets of Beijing. Delicious! So make a food itinerary that suits you for a particular place and enjoy! Adventure Sports Everybody thinks that honeymoons are all about laying back in the sun and chilling (they are!) but you can add an element of adventure by adding an adventure sport to your itinerary. Jump, fly, swing, dive, climb or surf! You can get your diving certificate at any PADI-Certified location at a resort. Thailand and Bali are filled with it and so is the Aandamans in India (Try Havelock). And as for surfing - we highly recco Soul & Surf in Varkala and Vaayu Vision. His ‘N’ Hers Tattoos What holiday is complete without a lifelong souvenir? Get matching honeymoon tattoos! here. Environmental Volunteering Get a dose of do-good on your adventures and volunteer for a conservation project. Be it with trees, dolphins or turtles, this is a chance to try something new and help Mother Nature along the way. Stay In Castle Ditch the 5-star resort and live like royalty, literally! Stay at this perfect Irish Castle that is over 600 years old. The money you get to spend on Castles and Palaces is totally worth it! Do Something Local Near a winery, go grape-crushing. If you are near a place that has local fishing happening, do that. Indulge in something that will allow you to experience the essence of the place. Attend An Event Tennis fan? Plan your honeymoon around Wimbledon or French Open time and attend one of the matches. Music fan? Attend a concert that you’ve been dying to - Beyonce to Metallica, everyone's on tour these days. A dream comes true on your honeymoon Go on a Big Camping Trip Camping at your favourite mountain is one helluva party. You could live out of a tent, sleep under the stars and work out a plan to trek the hills. Sooo romantic! 7 Wonders Of The World I know a friend who decided to club her trip into do-able packages. First up was the 7 wonders of the world and that was so fulfilling. So we thought, why not do something like that for a honeymoon!

Island Hopping Pick a few islands and hop around - it gives you a new place to stay every night and you could try a restaurant and local stuff, every single day! Road Trip Pack a bag and pick up a place. Get road-tripping for a fortnight - makes your honeymoon memorable! Off The Grid This one's the easiest and the most difficult thing to do at the same time. Go to a place where no internet / contact. Truly off the grid!
