Lonely Planet: Ten Unusual Honeymoon Hotspots

For our honeymoon, my wife and I did not look into the typical Caribbean or Hawaiian getaway. Our choices were narrowed down to Australia and Thailand. Australia was always our top choice and where we ended up going. While in Australia, many of the locals were a bit surprised that we would choose their country for our honeymoon. Our honeymoon in Australia was an incredible and unforgettable trip and I’d love to visit again in the future.
I just read an interesting article on Lonely Planet- Ten Unusual Honeymoon Hotspots.
The places selected are definitely not typical honeymoon destinations. I’ve been to a couple of places from the list and would never think of trekking to see mountain gorillas or visiting Namibia as places to go on a honeymoon but then again, why not!
Here is the Lonely Planet List:
  1. Snuggle in a beach basket built for two on Hiddensee Island, Germany
  2. Sleep on a lakeside farm in Shelburne, Vermont
  3. Enjoy a private beach on remote Pamalican Island, Philippines 
  4. Unwind on a gorilla safari in Bwindi Forest National Park, Uganda  
  5. Taste wine amid copper-coloured canyons in Cafayate, Argentina
  6. Smooching in Bettmeralp, Switzerland
  7. Embark on a sunset ride in Khan Khentii, Mongolia
  8. Cruise Alaska’s coast on an intimate small ship
  9. Take a vintage train journey in Namibia
  10. Enjoy the simple pleasures on Ambergris Caye, Belize
