We are finally planning our honeymoon. I made a deal with my now husband a long time ago that before we had children I had a “bucket list” of things that I needed do, see, accomplish… and it included an amazing adventurous vacation anywhere my heart desires. Well my husband promised to give me the world and indeed he’s getting pretty close to it. We finally both have the time blocked off from work!! 21 days in September, anywhere in the world I want 🙂
I had wanted to do the inca trail but I just learned that its all booked for the hike and I dont want to go there unless I get to do the hike (I was pretty heart broken). Some other ideas:
– Tanzania/Kenya- Climb Mt. Kilamanjaro, see the great migration, safari in the serengetti
– Take the Trans siberian railway from china to russia
(places we’ve already visited: france, italy, switzerland, singapore, malaysia, india, china, all of central america, cambodia, thailand, germany, spain)
Thanks BEEs! I’m hoping to make this an adventure of a lifetime something truly adventurous and amazing so tell me your craziest most spectacular ideas and info if you’ve been there!

I would do Turkey/Greece/Egypt or Tanzania.
We went to Dubai/Maldives/Sri Lanka for ours. It was amazing!!

My dream trip is to go to Argentina to eat beef, drink wine and ride horses. I would also love to see New Zealand before I kick it, but I don’t really have an agenda for that trip.
My favourite trip ever was to Bermuda, so pretty and everything was just lovely – tasty food and the people were so sweet. We did a lot of hiking along the old railway track and everything was just magic.
Now, because you have 21 days I would probably go for something that wasn’t an island – you have time to actually drive places! For country hoping I would probably vote for Europe. It’s safe and convenient and you’ll be able to get around talking English.

Sucks the Inca Trail is booked! DH and I are going there in December. You could always the the Lares Track/other trails that get you to MP ultimately? Apparently they are really good, less busy and have good ruins on the way but I understand if you are set on the original Inca Trail, I was too. What about Patagonia? Amazing scenery, good hiking etc. Could also combine with Buenos Aires, Santiago etc.
I cycled through Vietnam a few years ago and that was amazing but I see you’ve been to a fair bit of SE Asia before already.
I’d love to do Egypt and Turkey – could also combine with Jordan and see Petra! Hopefully the unrest in Egypt has settled down enough.

eocenia: “eat beef, drink wine” – my husband will be in pure heaven, I think if he were planning the trip he’d spend 21 days just doing those two things! lol

Definitely Greece/Malta/anywhere in that area. I’ve heard such great things! A friend of mine went on her honeymoon there and loved it so much they stayed for an extra two weeks!

BlushingMrs: Haha! Well, wine trips ARE nice! DH and I went to France for our honeymoon and tracked down the entire Loire River searching for the best sauvignon blancs. Actually… that’s a good reason for going to New Zealand come to think of it!
I was going to suggest heading up to Scandinavia (going through Iceland, they have free stop overs which is great) but we (I’m Swedish) are not that big when it comes to domestic wines.

Venice. Or to see the Northern Lights in person.
(Reading all of the PPs amazing suggestions, I’m thinking my “travel dreams” are boring: ha, ha!!)

longtimemrs: Northern Lights thats an awesome travel dream! I did look into that too but unfortunately it doesnt really occur during our vacation time it is best viewed from what i’ve read starting from late sept (we have 9/1-9/21 available). Dream big buddy!

Not really a suggestion but maybe something you’d like to consider; if you want to climb Mt Kili you need to do loads of training. P,us when you’re actually climbing there’ll be altitude sickness, possible exhaustion etc. These things may affect you more if you’re not used to climbing, hiking etc. Just a thought 🙂 wherever you go, I hope you have an amazing time!
