So you have finally taken the huge leap and  put a ring on it. Awesome .
Congratulations on getting married, Really, good job. Now for perhaps the first
step in the series of a very memorable journey for you both, your honeymoon
My perfect honeymoon destination. An island resort

have always wondered about the origin and real meaning of the word Honeymoon,
but rather than bore you with my findings after a bit of research I’d just say
it refers to ‘the first month’ after a wedding. First month. An entire month
guys, not one brief weekend spent hurriedly gulping food, skimming beaches,
taking couplies – that’s selfies for couple-, checking in and out of hotels and back at work on the
Monday after your wedding.  So if you
have to do your honeymoon, its best you do it right and trust me, there’s no
better way than taking the entire month off doing nothing but feeding your
better half grapes and making babies all the time enjoying the luxury of choice
hotel destinations and tourist attractions in your favorite cities. And more
making of babies.
So because we know the options are inexhaustible, and if you
could you would spend your entire life on one long never ending honeymoon, we
put together a quick list of top Honeymoon Destinations. This recommended by
our happily married friends who have explored some of these places, others by
awesome event and vacation planners and others still by starry eyed, dreamy
romantics like myself.
1. Yankari National Park
The Yankari Mational Park is one of the nations jeweled
tourist and vacation destinations and an ideal getaway for Honeymoon
