If you’re not the resort type, planning a honeymoon can feel daunting. But fear not! There are plenty of options for couples looking for something off the beaten path. If you and your soon-to-be are the outdoorsy type, here are a few ideas to help plan your post-wedding adventure:
If time and money are at a premium, going on a simple camping trip is a great option for getting away. A quick overnight in the great outdoors can help recharge your batteries, while a longer backwoods camping trip will provide privacy and quiet. Either of these options means unplugging and spending some quality time together away from the worries of every day life —
and what else is a honeymoon for!
For the more dedicated outdoorsmen, a backpacking trip is a great way to make a honeymoon memorable. Spread the trip over as much time as you have, then head into the wilderness for breathtaking views and absolute seclusion. If you have a more significant budget, look into backpacking in another country or across Europe.
A float trip is a great way for a couple to relax. Lots of parks along rivers offer these excursions, which often last all day. Pack a cooler with food and drinks, hop in a boat or tube and float down the river, together.
If driving the open road sounds like your idea of paradise, consider a road trip. Plot all the places of interest you and your soon-to-be want to see, then take the time to enjoy the act of traveling. Another option is taking the train, which will stop off at smaller, interesting towns along the way and allow you both time to enjoy the view.

Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
Barcelona has seen a recent influx of craft cocktails bars within the past five years or so, and Sant Antoni seems to be one of the city’s epicenters of such swanky watering holes. Amid the crisscross streets, organic grocery stores and the soon-to-open, recently renovated Sant Antoni market is Bitter, an inconspicuous cocktail bar where there’s more than meets the eye.
We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
Friends and family members of travelers are always looking for the right gift. It’s hard to find something that will surprise a traveler and also be something they use often. Many are trying to look past the typical gifts travelers get, such as notebooks and pens, and looking more toward destination-specific or more unique items. Gift giving can be difficult for some that don’t know what a traveler is looking for or needs, but these three gifts are a great starting point.
