Romantic destinations to choose from around the world

By DWD Desk


Most people will agree that honeymoon really is the best part about a wedding. It’s actually better than any other wedding related ritual – and why shouldn’t it be.

Firstly, you get to travel.
Secondly, you get to travel with your partner for life.

Well then; it’s time to say goodbye to those mandatory family vacations where you had no choice to voice or the lonely ones where you would desperately ask strangers to take that perfect portrait of you. Now you’ve got your own personal photographer with you at all times – Haha! Kidding! Ok – back to your honeymoon – Pick a beachy city we say!

You now have someone to share romantic moments like walking hand-in-hand on the sea shore or have lunch at a little bistro overlooking the sea. You can spend hours just having cocktails while sun bathing or relaxing to the sound of the waves. And what’s better than a beautiful beachy location to rid yourselves of all the wedding stress and fatigue?
