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!

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!

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?

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!

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!
