Honeymoon is a time for newlyweds to celebrate their marriage and bond with one another. It’s also a chance for couples to relax, reflect on their relationship and plan ahead for the future. Whether you’re just engaged or already married, there are plenty of ways to make your honeymoon a truly sensational experience. Here are some ideas to help you get started.
1. Have a blast – even if it’s just for a few days
After spending months and sometimes years planning the wedding of your dreams, it’s nice to let your hair down on your honeymoon. Don’t be afraid to try something completely out of the ordinary or ask your resort if they can surprise you with a special treat (it may not cost much more than room service or some champagne).
2. Learn something new – together
Indulge in activities that you and your new spouse enjoy. Many destinations offer courses and workshops that teach couples how to do a variety of things, from cooking and baking to dance lessons or mixology. It’s a great way to spend quality time together and, who knows, you might take home a new hobby as well!
3. Unwind in nature
There’s nothing more romantic than kicking back and relaxing in nature. Hike to a breathtaking view, or go for a long walk and just be present in the moment. You’ll find that your stress levels decrease and you can reconnect with each other in a very different way.
4. Do some sexy stuff
A honeymoon is a perfect opportunity to take a little bit of pressure off and just have fun. This is the perfect time to do some sexy stuff with your partner, but remember that you’re probably tired from all the wedding festivities and you may not be up for wild sex every night.
5. Explore a city
New Orleans is the ideal place for a honeymoon. It has jaw-dropping architecture, history you actually want to learn about and celebratory vibes all the dang time. Plus, it’s the perfect place to indulge in powdered sugar-dusted beignets and Sazerac cocktails.
6. Get some pampering
If you’re flying in to your destination on a business trip, take advantage of the airport lounges that your airline offers. These are usually more quiet than the rest of the terminal and will have comfy armchairs, complimentary drinks, snacks and newspapers. You can even pre-book a couple’s spa treatment here.
7. Visit a natural wonder
Whether it’s the desert, mountains, jungle or seaside, your honeymoon is the perfect opportunity to explore a gorgeous part of the world. You’ll be able to breathe in the fresh air, get some sun and have a fantastic adventure to look forward to. Plus, if you have a travel voucher, you can often upgrade to a premium suite or get a free couples massage. Just be sure to check with your airline about their policies ahead of time. Then, once you’re on the plane, you can just focus on having a wonderful and romantic trip!
