Indian weddings are hectic and hardly romantic. Amidst all the rituals, shopping and other hubbubs there is hardly any time left for the bride and groom to cosy up. Hence the honeymoon. No matter how epic your wedding was, it’s imperative to start this new phase of life by spending some alone time together in a faraway land, have mind-blowing honeymoon sex and know each other a little better before you move into domesticity.
Couples who travel together, stay together
You two have probably taken weekend vacations together before marriage or travelled with a group of friends, but this time you are officially out for a vacation with just the two of you, not as girlfriend and boyfriend, but as a team. The best time to know somebody is when you hit the road together and begin your journey to reach the destination. Multiple things go wrong in a travel and how you two behave to tackle the crisis on the road lays the groundwork for building a rock solid chemistry. So choose your honeymoon destination wisely and make sure you have a good time together. We are going to show you the right places to do that!
1. Kenya – for adventurous couples
For wildlife enthusiasts Kenya is a great option for honeymoon. Little unorthodox some might say, but incredibly romantic nonetheless.
