Planning your honeymoon is the biggest adventure you will ever have in your life, your first trip as husband and wife. This trip, in addition to the well-deserved rest from the stress of organizing the big day, must represent the celebration of your relationship that has now become "serious", wonderfully "serious". For this reason, do not forget to take the time to organize your honeymoon, especially if you have decided to rely on advice from some of the best travel blogs like and to organize a DIY honeymoon. To do it in the best possible way, just follow these 5 steps that will help you choose the ideal destination.

Step 1: The season

The first step, perhaps the most important, since the season in which you leave will depend on the climate and therefore the destination. Before choosing where to go, keep in mind that the wedding season par excellence goes from June to October, which is why most newlyweds leave for their honeymoon during those months that often coincide with the summer holiday period. Precisely for this reason, it would be better to plan the trip in a different period, in order to avoid unknown faces in your photos, endless queues to visit the points of interest or eat and, above all, the typical prices of the high season. Don't forget that the seasons alternate differently in different parts of the world, so if you choose an exotic destination, be careful of possible periods of rain or prohibitive temperatures. 

Step 2: Passion trips

Travelling is an exciting adventure, but not everyone is prepared for any kind of trip. If you are used to flying, love long walks, enjoy listening and speaking foreign languages and visiting the most characteristic places, we recommend you to escape from the typical honeymoons that are devoted only to relaxation by the sea. But if this is the first time that you leave your home country and you have decided to do so on such a special occasion, you must choose a destination not too different from what you are used to, to avoid cultural shocks.

You can still live an incredible experience, but try to be well informed about the habits of the country and do not be afraid as you can organize the trip in every detail, hiring a guide to help you explore the place. Don't risk ruining such a beautiful trip by trying to go too far, you can discover new worlds without going too far! 

Step 3: Duration of the holiday

You need to know for sure the number of days of holiday at your disposal in order to choose a destination that will allow you to fully enjoy your honeymoon. The myth of the honeymoon pushes many couples to choose distant destinations that require time to be reached and they hurry to visit everything possible turning the honeymoon into a tour de force. Luckily, life is long, so it makes no sense to go crazy trying to visit as many places as possible in a short time, rather it is better to choose only points of interest and devote more time to visit them.

You already know that when you fly for more than seven hours by airplane, the time zone changes, very often shortening the actual length of your stay, so consider the days of travel as lost and plan your holiday in the days that remain. Many couples combine the days of marriage leave with vacation days, so you have more time to visit more distant destinations like New Zealand, Chile or Vietnam. But if you only have 10 or 15 days available for your honeymoon, it is best to opt for closer and more interesting destinations.

Step 4: Country features

Every country is a world apart thanks to all the wonders that characterize it and make it special; for this reason, it is recommended to study in depth every characteristic of the chosen destination, to know what to visit and how to prepare for the trip. If you visit Africa, South America or Asia, find out about gastronomy and climate, two of the main aspects to keep in mind. For example, in countries like Jordan, the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia or Kuwait, temperatures in summer are prohibitive, which is why it is best to visit them in winter. Others like India and Nepal are affected by monsoons at certain times of the year, so it is best to visit them between November and March.

Some of these countries have a very particular local gastronomy that uses food that we would never imagine as part of a menu, that's why it is imperative that you inform yourselves beforehand to avoid unpleasant surprises. It is also vital to find out about the means of transport in the area, the language and the availability of the population, as the concept of education is not the same everywhere. First of all, respect the place where you are staying, try to adapt to the habits of the locals, have fun and take a piece of that foreign land with you to transform the world into a place without borders.

Step 5: Budget

Even for the honeymoon, you have to deal with the budget and choose a destination that fits in the budget you have in mind. There are many travel packages that include visiting different cities and are not prohibitively priced; thanks to these, many couples can afford to visit New York and the Riviera Maya without exceeding the budget.

But if money is not a problem for you, you can travel around the world and, with the help of travel agencies, organize a dream vacation, without limits. We advise you to always calculate your budget in excess, in order to be prepared for any unforeseen events that may arise during the trip, such as problems with transportation, currency exchange, possible accidents and extras that you often forget to take into account.
