We had a relaxing honeymoon in Jamaica. Ten days of relaxation. We basically did nothing except hang out at the resort by the pool or at the beach. It was perfect.

We are adventurous and looooove to fish. But for our honeymoon, I wanted to do something a bit more romantic. We are only going to Cabo but we got a super romantic resort and plan to be a little more relaxed than our usual vacations. We are going to do a deep sea fishing trip though! Haha It’s our thing. But just for one day.

We’re doing both in Thailand. 1/2 culture, adventure, nature and history, and 1/2 relaxing on the beach sipping cocktails.

We did a relaxing vacation to an all inclusive resort in Mexico. We had a great time but since we are usually adventurous vacation people, in hindsight I would do an adventurous vacation if I could plan it all over again.

We did an East to West USA road trip for a month. We’re both from Europe but live in the Middle East. It was an amazing holiday with lots of driving but was definitely a once in a lifetime trip. Even though we were on the go all the time,  it was still chilled as we went at our own pace and just enjoyed the spectacular scenery you guys over the pond are blessed with and the genuine warmth and friendliness of everyone we met. We both get bored with too much beach but enjoyed a few days of Californian sunbathing before heading home. So although it was an adventure, it was relaxing enough for us too.

We did a mixture of both! We went to Italy and did the romantic tuscany farmhouse thing as well as cinque terre and the lakes where we did paragliding, hiking, boat rentals etc.. 

I think you could make both your ideas romantic or adventurous. Sequoia sounds great, you could be adventurous but also stay in a log cabin and have romantic days. Similarly Paris is great but I wouldnt stick to just the city (it can be crowded so not as romantic as you would imagine for a honeymoon), I would have 2 or 3 days then explore the loire valley or even head south to the dordogne (wine and castles) where you can also kayak. The Alsace is a beautiful area too and not too far from Paris. Outside of Paris, France gets a less expensive.

Adventurous always. I get very bored just sitting around, and really do not find it very relaxing.

trinibride0417 :  We like a bit of both haha we love chilling out at the beach or by the pool, but we equally love exploring new places!

We’ve planned a mixture of both as a result 😉

We’re flying to LA, going to Disneyland, then flying to Maui for a week. In Maui, we’re going to do a few excursions but also chill by the sea in the afternoons/days off. Then, it’s to San Francisco to see the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz before coming home 🙂

Sore point for me. We’re going nowhere because of Zika….arghhh. In an ideal world, I was planning to split half and half between somewhere beachy and somewhere to sightsee, but the beach would have to have day trips and plenty to see. My ideal would be something like a Thai island plus culture in Chiang Mai or a similar thing combining Tulum with Mexican ruins . For me honeymoon means warm not cold, and being somewhere relaxed rather than a crowded capital city (even if it was Paris..), but not a resort either. If you do go to Paris, I’d recommend combining it with somewhere more chilled on the mediterranean coast- on Easyjet it would be just as easy/cheap/maybe cheaper on living costs even, to combine it with somewhere in Italy, Spain, Portugal or Croatia as with France.

I would say it depends on how long yall have been together. If yall have already been on a bunch of romantic trips together then I would go the adventure route. Either way it will be great but the adventure route will definitely make for amazing memories. Note, I would consider touring Europe and seeing the sights an adventure route (although it would be romatic too)…. If this is will be yalls first time being intimate on a trip then I would just go the relaxation route and go to the carribean or something. This being said, it will be perfect no matter what because of the person you are sharing it with….. I’m in the same boat as you. Trying to plan perfect honeymoon and probably overthinking it haha

cate23 :  This is exactly what we’re doing! Two weeks — first half in Chiang Mai, second half at a still to be determined beach in the south. Whan and where are you guys going?

leonatigra :  Thailand isn’t on the CDC list for Zika.
