rolypoly :  Hey Bee. I don’t know if this counts as typical or not but our honeymoon itinerary is:

9 days in Vanuatu

4 days in southern Western Australia

Focussing specifically on the second leg, It’s not really seen as a honeymoon place. But you have magnificent scenery, wonderful beaches, some of the best wine in the world (Chardonnay to die for it’ll make you a convert if you don’t like it). Beautiful rolling hills, wild wilderness, spotless beaches. It is cool in June, but it’s the greenest time of year. Recommend Yallingup (about 20kms north of Margaret River) – best accommodation and access to the beautiful landscape.

Even Esperance – which has hands down, the most spotless and untouched beaches on the planet.

Broome up north – much warmer as it’s in the tropics, and June is the dry season. Also a favourite. Beautiful weather, beautiful beaches. You can get on the back of a camel and trek the landscape. Do recommend.

Yeah, hands down recommend Western Australia. The isolation renews you.

My husband and I went to Colombia on our honeymoon last year in May! It was a great trip. We mixed staying at a luxe boutique hotel in Bogotá with a 4 day hike in the jungle near Santa Marta and then headed to a nature hostile in the mountains in Minca. We only had 10 days, but we packed a lot in!! I’d recommend it as a fun honeymoon spot.

rolypoly :  Dude the Quokkas are adorable. They are so friendly (literally come right up to you to say hi) and have this permanent smile on their faces.

rolypoly :  yes we did!! It was hard but worth it. Although my husband did get a bit sick on the hike (from the water, we think). It was an amazing trip though, I’d love to go back to Colombia and other areas of South America. We’re from Canada By The Way.

Is Iceland or Norway too typical?

rolypoly :  cruising some fjords in Norway is on my bucket list. I suggested it because it’s a bit further and more expensive than you might want to do on an ordinary vacation. But the weather is supposed to be nice in the summer and a perfect time to explore some of the lovely countryside.

Hmmm.. If you weren’t going in June, I’d suggest Vietnam but I went in May and the heat/humidity was powerful. 

Fiji was a true delight but you might consider it typical as in an idyllic tropical island. However the fresh seafood was fantastic, scuba diving coral reefs to die for and the Fijian people are so friendly and welcoming. 

We did a reef and rainforest trip of Australia in July and the weather in Queensland was very agreeable even though it is winter during this time. Lots of beautiful scenery and wildlife everywhere you turn.

Have you been to Croatia? I know it is gaining in popularity (large part due to Game of Thrones) but it is beautiful. Tons of small pebble beaches, mild temperatures, fresh seafood for days, and the cutest Airbnb’s at extremely affordable rates. Flights can be pricey but the trip itself can be done very cheaply if you don’t spend all your time doing the touristy things.

AUSTRALIA AUSTRALIA COME SEE US!!

 

OMG BEE it’s beautiful here, WA is my favourite place in the WORLD. Esperence is the place to be WHITE sands, blue blue blue water more beautiful than anything i’ve ever seen. 

 

But June is cold. To me anyway, it’s winter here, not that it means A LOT. But if you’re used to the warm it will be cold, if you’re used to the cold you’ll be in t-shirt and shorts like all my Canada friends. (just go north WA not south if you’re worried and you’ll be fine during winter)

I don’t know if this is too basic but we did our honeymoon to Alaska. We spent time hiking, viewing wildlife, in remote cabins, and then ended in a luxury resort while whale watching. It was beautiful, relaxed, romantic, and adventurous!
