  1. Italy, Greece and Barbados are definitely on me and my husbands travel list. We didn’t take a fancy honeymoon but once our family is grown we will spend more time traveling again.

  2. Santorini is definitely at the top of my bucket list and I think it would make an amazing honeymoon destination! I just got back from Turks and Caicos and I would recommend a honeymoon there as well.

  3. These all look romantic! If only my husband and I can get married again, I would choose among the first 3 destinations you listed here. Haha

  4. I haven’t been to Boracay or Bora Bora (one day for that one) but I’ve been to all the others and yes they are very romantic places. I would probably add Bali, Indonesia, Phuket or Chiang Mai Thailand and anywhere on the French Riviera– OMG the sunsets, food and ambiance was amazing. Unfortunately (or well, at least you spent time there) I vacationed on Santorini with my kids and not my husband who was deployed at the time. Trust me, its wasted romance when you go to Santorini with two young boys. lol

  5. When/If I actually get married again, I really want to go to Italy. I am a chef, so food is pretty much my life and the food in Italy is amazing. I would love to explore Venice and Rome and the countryside to find different types of cuisine!

  6. Santorini and Italy, you can never go wrong with picking these locations! They’re both so lovely and you’re also going to fall in love with the place itself.

  7. YES to all of these locations! They’re all so awesome and lovely. I like going to the beach with my husband, there’s just something really romantic about it.

  8. Boracay is really more for young adults. I think El Nido would be a better honeymoon destination or perhaps Sumilon island in Cebu here in the Philippines. 🙂
