Hey! Is anyone else here into traveling? Or well, who isn't I have a travel related question, but I thought once that's dealt with, people can post their travel experiences or other questions etc. to keep it going Vacation photos also, please Anyway, I got married a couple of weeks ago, and we got a fair amount of money as wedding gift that we're intending to spend on a honeymoon. Thing is, we don't know where we're going or when The main goal would be to go somewhere warm, with palm trees, sandy beaches and azure colored water etc. The place should also be relatively cheap so we don't have to worry about money once we get there. If that's the case, then I don't mind paying 1k€+ for the plane tickets. We're not that much into physical activities like hiking etc, so those kinds of places can be ignored, but I don't want to spend a whole week on the beach either, so there's gotta be something interesting to see/do there too. My last two trips with my friends were to Vietnam and Japan, so I feel like it's time to go the other way for a change. Also, Asian culture isn't really mine nor my wife's thing (hence not considering going to Thailand for instance). I have a few ideas: South America / some Caribbean island: Plane tickets over there are a bit more expensive than I have in mind, but other that these places tick all the boxes. If anyone has any experiences about those island, I'd love to hear them! If we end up going that way, we might be going right after Christmas and coming back after new year's, which sounds perfect to me. It'd be nice to hear experiences about South America in general, as I'm also considering mainland countries for the destination. This is what I'm mainly looking at at the moment, but then I'd have to find some super deal on the flights. Italy: Getting to Italy isn't expensive and neither of us have been there. We're also very much into Italian food. This option would delay our honeymoon until it starts getting warm over there again, as it's pretty cold in Italy around new year's (not compared to Finland of course) ... Suggestions about which city to go to are much appreciated! I think Rome is out of the question as it's too far from the sea, but what about Sicily or Naples? Or other coastal cities? Croatia: Some friends of ours suggested this. I don't know much about Croatia, but it has the same weather problem as Italy. Apparently it might be a bit cheaper though. Lisbon, Portugal: In early 2016 we were pondering whether to go here or Barcelona, and we ended up picking Barcelona that time. Same weather problem here too. So yeah. I'd love to go ASAP but since my summer vacation just ended, the earliest chance of going might be around Christmas/new year's. After that it may have to wait until next summer, which is a depressingly long time from now Any other suggestions both in terms of time and place are much appreciated! I was also gonna share some of my own traveling memories too, but this post got pretty long already so I'll save those for later. I've been to a bunch of places in different setups (with family, with friends, alone, with and without kids etc.), so those might be helpful or at least interesting to someone.
