Our featured blogger Anna, will be wrapping up our honeymoon mini series this week. If you missed out on her first two posts, she gave awesome tips for a 'Gourmet Getaway' last week, and two weeks ago she shared her top recommendations for an 'Outdoor Adventure' honeymoon. It's feels like we've gotten to travel the world these past couple weeks and today's journey is just as incredible!
Our inspiration couple for the finale are best friends who share a love of literature, history, and everything adventure! What’s more romantic than traveling back in time to experience the history of foreign lands with one another?!
When we think of the most romantic honeymoon getaways we immediately dream of exploreing Europe. Tell us we aren't alone! So today, we’re highlighting the magical land across the pond. Keep scrolling for our top stops for you and your boo!
Known as the “City of Lights,” we can’t help but feel that Paris, France, is one of the most romantic cities in the entire world. There is something for anyone and everyone. From stunning architecture, monumental museums, and the most exquisite cuisine, Paris is always a good idea for lovers!
Our first stop in Paris is the largest art museum and historic monument in the world - the Louvre. Home to the most renowned masterpieces and artists in all of history. The Louvre is a truly mind-blowing experience.
Midnight in Paris. Talk about a dream. As the Eiffel Tower sparkles bright against the night sky nothing seems to matter in those moments but you and your love.
We’re obsessed with Dublin and everything Irish! Home to some of the most breathtaking landscapes, the happiest people, and a lot of beer… a LOT of beer. Why not test your luck and plan a trip to explore Dublin?!
Perhaps the best way to experience Dublin is on foot, and I guarantee you will pass by a pub or two, or honestly ten. The Irish seriously indulge in their play time, and this honeymoon is the perfect time for play! Make sure to stop by the famous Temple Bar that was opened back in 1599! Talk about history.
Game of Thrones (GoT) Locations
WINTER IS COMING! Seriously guys, it’s October. Winter is almost here. LOL. No, really. Only a short ways north of Dublin in Northern Ireland you can visit the sets of Game of Thrones! Home to Winterfell (House Stark, anyone?) Northern Ireland is sure to satisfy both the nature lover and GoT lover in you!
One of the many reasons we love Ireland is for the mystical and magical. What if: leprechauns were real, there’s is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, and fairies exist in magic gardens? See for yourself as you explore the beautiful gardens on the outskirts of Dublin said to be home to enchanted fairies!
“When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life…” and we couldn’t agree more! You could spend your entire life in this one of a kind town and still not see it all. For now, we’ll start with the honeymoon, but we’re warning you - you might never want to leave!
Centered in the heart of London, Westminster Abbey is home to many past, yet powerful, monarchs and witness to countless royal weddings. The grand opulence of this abbey is awe-inspiring, and it’s wild to consider how many have said “I do” here before you!
Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre
Though the original theatre burned down many moons ago, the only thing on fire in this reconstructed version is the performances! The Globe is the perfect date night on the glistening Thames River. Experience the classics: Midsummer’s Night Dream, Macbeth or Romeo & Juliette the way Shakespeare’s audience experienced them, only some 400 years ago.
Truly a way to see it all! The Eye offers some of the most spectacular and romantic views of all of London. Kick back and relax after a full day of sightseeing, sip on some bubbly, and dream about the lifetime to come.
We hope you’ve been inspired by our honeymoon mini series! Where are you planning on exploring or where have you already honeymooned? We would love to hear all about your adventures!
Enjoy this picture of yours truly in Paris circa 2013. I call it, “Laid back Louvre.” And I can personally confirm, Paris IS magical.
