Forget tranquil beaches, today's honeymooners prefer the adrenaline rush.Remember when people always honeymooned in Hawaii or Bahamas? It was all about gazing into each other's eyes with the backdrop of a tangerine-hued sunset, fancy meals and then endless love-making in a secluded resort.
No more! For the past couple of years, I've noticed that every couple I know who've gotten hitched have indulged in an exhilarating adventure honeymoon. Backpacking through Nepal, African safaris, and frolicking through rocky beaches and waterfalls in India...
I thought the whole intent of a honeymoon was to make your honey moan! By the time a couple got a chance to wind down all that trekking at night, wouldn't sweat and exhaustion extinguish any chance of gettin' busy?
Getting past the cliché expectations of what a honeymoon should be like is quite an achievement - and since it's a boat-load of money that's going to be spent, it might as well be on a trip that will create memories for a lifetime.
So whether it be snorkeling or mountain climbing, if it gets the adrenaline pumping - it's definitely worthwhile. Check out The Knot's take on the best new-agey adventure honeymoons.
