Honeymoon Idea Number One: Paris, France Macaroons, espresso and the tastiest food in the world can all be found in Paris, France. Since you might want to experience a few things that are pricey Traveler's Joy offers group gifting. An easy way to divide the cost of expensive items into manageable portions.
A Float along the Canal Saint-Martin, and an evening stay at a local hotel might cost $500. That can be split into 5 $100 gifts (or gifts of any size). A fantastic way to be sure you get to experience everything. Buy the photograph above from Elgarbo Art.
Honeymoon Idea Number Two: Indonesia Experience all the art, culture and romance of that Indonesia has to offer. Take a trip to the islands near Flores. Where, as you can see they offer the kind of pristine beaches and translucent water that makes for perfect snorkeling. Photographed by Ken Kochey.
Honeymoon Idea Number Three: Africa
Traveler's Joy also has another great resource for you to utilize on their site - their Real Member Stories and registries. Terry and Melissa are a real live couple also wanting to go to Africa.
Why not add this Apoka Safari Lodge to your wish list? It overlooks the Narus River Valley, whose permanent water supply draws large herds of elephants and buffalo as well as more obscure mammals such as Jackson’s hartebeests and Rothschild’s giraffes.
Honeymoon Idea Number Three: Amalfi, Italy Italy sounds simply divine .... right? So many places to visit there, however, our top pick would be the Amalfi Coast. Besides their gorgeous beaches they have the biggest lemons you will ever see. They are so big, because the locals use them to produce limoncello. Imagine a refreshing glass of limoncello as you gaze out at the turquoise clear waters. Our bags are packed. Photographed by Antonio Biancardi.
Honeymoon Idea Number Four: San Diego, California There really are so many amazing places all over the world you can go, including San Diego, California. Miles of beaches, blue skies and endless activities in this marvelous town. Beautiful beach below photographed by Johnny Lucus.
