Top Honeymoon Destinations

Your honeymoon is bound to be one of the most special experiences ever. As the most important and enjoyable, love­filled holiday event in your newly­wed life it takes time and particular care to find the perfect place to spend with your loved one in unforgettable bliss.

It’s a big world, so here are some suggestions for the top preferred locations for newly­weds:

The Italian Island of Sicily­ – one of the most visited spots in the world­ – is filled with romantic settings and scenic wonders; dancing by the moonlight and enjoying the Mediterranean breeze on a private beach resort or by the pool of a restored Sicilian villa around Taormina or Agrigento (easily reached from the Palermo or Catania airports where many car hire services in Sicily are available through affordable online deals) is one of the most exotic and romantic experiences of the Mediterranean.

Rome of course is still the eternal city of love, with the luxurious fashion shops of Via del Corso and Via Condotti, walks along the Tiber, Ponte Sisto and Campo de Fiori, romantic dinners in the many restaurants and cafes in the alleyways around Trastevere and the historical center, it remains every bride’s dream of a lifetime. Venezia is another favorite, although it too is undergoing many structural changes as new modern shops and buildings are beginning to take their toll on the scenery. But it has all and more to offer with its moonlit promenades, gondola excursions around the canals, and spectacular yearly carnival renowned throughout the globe.

Paris will always take your breath away; the majestic Tour Eiffel and decorative light display makes for one of the most romantic spots ever, with accommodations at the glamorous Shangri­La Hotel you will have every opportunity to admire it and Parisian life as you view the panorama from your private terrace or enjoy a cocktail and dinner at the many cafes in the area.

For lovers of white sandy beaches and turquoise waters, the Maldives are still considered one of the best honeymoon destinations. Niyama provides the best accommodations and entertainment at its Subsix nightclub with its underwater aquariums and dance floors, Spas, beach cinema, restaurants and rooftop Bar Fahrenheit where you can sip exotic cocktails and admire the sunset in perfect harmony.

With our wedding plans finally starting to come together, Sy and I are thinking somewhere in Greece for the honeymoon; good food, romantic vistas and so much culture. Just need to get the actual wedding day sorted!!

November in Australia

So apparently it’s November, though as we’ve been living an endless summer since June my seasonal clock is well and truly out of sync. If we were back in England right now we’d be celebrating Bonfire Night, shopping for winter coats and debating whether it’s time to turn the central heating on full yet. Here in Australia, everyone’s buying bikinis and stocking up on sun lotion. Very confusing.

The temperatures here are rising every day, resulting in some crazy storms that I love to watch from our apartment – the real dramatic kind, where thunder echoes around the high rises and lightning strikes in huge forks out at sea. The days are getting longer and hotter, and while I’m loving the sunny days everyone here keeps warning me about how intense the heat is going to be once Summer’s in full swing. Only time will tell how I’ll cope with that!

Here’s what I’d be shopping for if we were back in the UK right now…

November in England



But here in our second Summer, I’m more likely to be lusting after something like this…

November in Australia



The leather jacket and the sunnies are both from BLK DNM – if we were in the UK I’d be heading there for some cosy layering. Their leather jackets are to die for, I’m pretty sad that it’ll be a good while until I can wear one again. I’m trying to fight my ingrained English urge to stock up on knitwear and chunky boots (not that I’d find any in the shops here anyway)… time to join the Aussies and go bikini shopping!
