Mr TTR & I are semi-retired, so travel is a major interest / past-time for us.
In all honesty, there is NO RIGHT or WRONG answer to this Question, as everyone is different and has a very distinct travel style…
Some people like to spend their vacations just “vegetating” other people want adventure
We sort of like a mix of both… lol
Always allowing for a couple of “down days” when we travel extensively… to just stay put, sleep in, unwind.
And as someone who is an Encore Bride, I’d have to say that is an element that EVERY HONEYMOON needs and a lot of couples forget about / don’t consider when they are making plans
The Day After the Wedding should be low key… and if you are having a Traditional BIG White Pouffy Family Wedding… maybe 2 Days of R&R before setting off full steam ahead… as Wedding Planning & even the Wedding Day can be exhausting !!
Even Mr TTR & I who Eloped… planned for 2 slow days… and no regrets.
We took advantage of the Hotel’s Late Check Out… had a leisurely Breakfast, and then the few hours north out of The Keys to our Airport Hotel in Miami… where we spent the day around the Pool, had a nice Lunch & Dinner… and turned in early
Up the next day at the crack of dawn, to catch our Flight to Puerto Rico… 2 more Days in San Juan, before our weeklong Caribbean Cruise
The Cruise was a nice mix of Hot & Calm as you say… but it was also busy too… getting off the ship every day in a New Port of Call to explore a new Island / Country. So filled with adventure as well.
We always made time for some Pampering tho… a Cruise Vacation can have a nice amount of that as well… Spa Visits, Wonderful Food & Wine, Cocktails on Deck, and Late Night Theatre. And sometimes we just sat on our balcony and stared at the horizon… the sea, the sky, the stars… it was awesome !!
Lol… as for your Poll
I VOTED 2x…
HOT !! Cocktails & Books a Turqouise Sea & Sandy Beach … the Wedding was stressful !!
Anywhere with Champagne & an Bedroom Ocean View is good for me !!
