Honeymoon is the time to shoot for the moon: travel further, stay longer, eat more and bring home a lifetime’s worth of romantic memories. Let’s see top 3 Honeymoon destinations for 2014:
1) Andalucia, Spain: Not many of us consider Spain as a honeymoon destination. But just imagine few things like lunch under the sunny skies at the olive orchards of southern Spain. Along with that also think jamon iberico, olives, manchego cheese and local Jerez sherry on a hand-woven blanket, followed by a languorous siesta. The wild mountains outside Seville provide the perfect setting for idyllic, isolated feasts. By night see flamenco, the dance of love and passion, some of whose brightest stars – Joaquin Cortes, Miguel Rios, Rocio Jurado, Isabel Pantoja and Joaquin Sabina – hail from Andalucía.
2) Cappadocia, Turkey: Turkey is another destination which one will not consider while planning their honeymoon. But this country gives you a chance to do something different than the usual. Here the fairy chimneys of Cappadocia are spectacularly peculiar, a sight that needs to be shared. This region offers plenty of opportunities to explore on foot or by car, but the best way is to wake up before dawn for a balloon ride over the jagged landscape and fantastic dwellings. If you are tired after the waking up early then post-afternoon-nap you can climb the stairs up to Uchisar Castle to watch the sunset from the top of the area’s tallest fairy chimney, where Cappadocia mingles with the clouds and everything from Mt Erciyes to the Pigeon Valley is in view.
3) Queenstown, New Zealand: Apart from the unusual, adrenaline is as important for bonding as the love drug oxytocin and there’s no better place to get it pumping than New Zealand’s South Island. Queenstown is the birthplace of bungee jumping, as well as being home to jet boating, Zorbing, paragliding and epic hiking and skiing. So if you are a couple who loves adventure, then New Zealand is the best honeymoon destination for you. Here if all the activity becomes too much, then you can opt for the helicopter rides over the Southern Alps to stunning Milford Sound, as well as a sophisticated food and wine scene.
