Honeymoon Hotspots

From the beginning we had a pretty good idea of where we were headed for our honeymoon—but that doesn’t mean I resisted the urge to Google top honeymoon destinations and drool over the beautiful locales and perfect resorts. Our honeymoon will be more low key than any of these, but I might send a few them off to Mr. Lemur as a hint for our one-year anniversary!

1. Curacao

Anyone else not know Curacao existed until the last season of The Bachelorette? After Jef (with one f, I never did understand that…) proposed to Emily with the darling buildings in the background, I had to add this one to the list. The fact that Jef & Emily are sadly no longer together does not ruin this beautiful island for me!

2. Spain

Spanish architecture floors me. It’s so stunning. And after eight years of Spanish from middle school through college, I’m due a trip to Spain! I’m secretly still listening to Spanish hip hop to stay up on the language…anybody want to borrow a six-year-old Juanes CD?

3. New Zealand

My grandparents went to New Zealand five or six years ago and brought back some truly incredible pictures. Ever since then it’s been in the back of my mind—and Mrs. Wallaby’s beautiful honeymoon kinda reminded me that oh hey, I need to go there!

4. Peru

We love to hike and just the thought of hiking somewhere like this gets me so excited! Yes, I love hiking in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and the Appalachian Trail is great. But really, do they have anything on the Andes Mountains? Actually maybe this category should just be “mountains.” I’ll take any of them—Rockies, Alps, Mount Everest…

Anyone been to any of these places? Share your stories with me so I can live vicariously through you!

    I feel like I want to see EVERYTHING and go EVERYWHERE. I’m pretty sure there’s not enough time in my life for me to go everywhere that I’d like to go, but the ones on your list look good too! I’m not going to Peru, but I am going to Chile in a couple of weeks, so that’s pretty close! I also took many years of spanish (5 years of real study), but it’s been 7 years, so I’m more than rusty. I really might as well not have any years of study for how little I actually remember and how little I’ll actually be able to use it while we’re there. Oh well, though! It should still be awesome. 🙂

    @Brooklyn55: Oh I loved Sean… I couldn’t believe she gave Arie & Jef roses over him!! I AM going to watch this season… sometime…

    There’s a lot of complicating factors to our honeymoon which have to get worked out first… once we do that I’ll try to post on it!

    @karistiz: I wish I had the chance to study abroad in college! I am crazy jealous of all who were able to spend a semester in Spain… or anywhere really!

    @fevew: Someday I’ll get to go, right??

    @lealorali: Mr. Lemur & I love hiking and adventure… but maybe not so much on our honeymoon! I’m kinda thinking this should be a one-year trip 😉 Mr. Lemur if you’re reading this, yes??

    @Blonde17Jess: Oh I know on the Spanish thing… I took years and years but I feel like I’ve lost a lot of it. I would think it would come back quickly, right??

    I’ve been to Curacao only for a day, sadly! But it was gorgeous and I’d lovelovelove to go back! In fact, I’d like to go to every place you listed!
