I’m always up for trying a new place.  I moved to another continent on a whim and now am here long term.  But if you don’t like adventure, there are usually tons of online reviews to tell you what other people think of the country/hotel/sites you are thinking about.  It might be a good way to try something new and minimize the risk it will not be up to your expectations…

well you cant go wrong with somewhere you both like, youll be more comfortabe knowing the area.  if going somehwere new is important to you than do some reasearch, ask people who have been certain places.  my dad has been to over 50 countries and raves about costa rica, australia and greece i believe.  my boyfriend has also been to australia and really enjoyed it. maybe even consider a US honeymoon. there are some beautiful places like yellowstone national park, the redwood forest, the grand canyon, las vegas, etc.  personally, i love boston.  my sister went to college there and everytime we visited her it was a blast! new england in general is nice.

i totally understand!  we initially were planning to go to italy for our honeymoon,  but we’ve decided to return to napa, where we got engaged…  the more we talked about it, the more we decided we preferred to go to a place where we can relax, are able to navigate the highway system, and speak the language!  we’re saving the adventurous travelling for when there’s less pressure!

I think there are so many amazing new places to see that even a whole life is not enough to get to them all. I see the appeal of returning somewhere familiar – for example, we were so tempted to go to Italy, which I had been to before, since we’d never been there together and it’s extremely romantic. But this is is probably our only two week vacation for a long while, so we’ll be using it to go somewhere completely new.

As long as you do your research for a new place, you’ll be fine.

I agree with others.  Do some research and don’t set expectations too high (like expect a vacation of sunshine, you never know what the weather will be, so be prepared to have something to do if it rains).  Ask around, but ask in some detail because I’ve found people have very different vacation styles so one person who loved something may be looking for something different out of their vacation than you were.
