Welcome to the BT Blog
Where we Hope to Inform and Inspire
If you are thinking about your honeymoon, considering your options, and making plans, this is Part 2. If you want a bit more and missed our last blog: check out Part 1.
Americans spend an average of 2.5 hours on social media each day, day after day. We love it, we hate it, we connect with our friends and occasionally our better selves, we find it annoying one minute and exhilarating the next. We also know that know we need a break from it. Newlyweds are deciding to take a break engaging in social media while on their honeymoons. Why post when you're focused on each other and connecting? Couples either remove the app from their phones or they show some self-discipline and simply don't log in. Others choose to post a few images at the end of each day.
"Mega-moons," Splurge Moon, & YOLO
It's actually true... you only live once. To that end, if you can spend money, spend with no regrets and plan well. Get the great hotel in the cool part of town or near the sites, book the exclusive reservation at that restaurant, stay an extra week, book first class seats on the plane, do the safari in Kenya instead of something an hour away by car. In other words: shoot for the moon. Create the honeymoon experience that you will talk about for a lifetime.
We are a nation of foodies. You cannot have the diversity of immigrants with recipes in the US, and around 20 million dollars in cookbook sales each year, and deny it. We love to cook and explore and we love to eat.
Gourmet honeymoon options are as numerous as they are diverse. Go to Fairbanks, Alaska for the natural beauty and for restaurants serving uniquely-prepared fresh fish dishes. Louisville, Kentucky is perfect for foodies who love a Kentucky Hot Brown with some bourbon on the side. Napa Valley is, well ... Napa Valley. Superb vineyards mean that restaurants have sprung up around them serving organically grown California fruits, vegetables, proteins and flavors. New York City has plenty of distractions, but it is also a mecca for the gourmet. Go to Italy and learn how to make pizza or pasta, understand when figs are ripe, and which olive oil you should use for cooking and which for finishing. Food is where it's at. Celebrate your marriage and walk off the pounds site seeing.
Whatever you choose, set a budget, talk through it, get excited and do what suits you both best!
