second honeymoon, on the beach at sunset.


A second honeymoon is a perfect opportunity to reconnect with your spouse. Perhaps after a long period of parenting or working. Or an ideal way to celebrate an anniversary, birthday or any other special day with the person you love most in the world. Before taking off on your next trip, make sure you know how you plan to keep it fun and romantic for both of you!

What’s great about a second honeymoon

  1. You’ve known your partner long enough to be comfortable with them. Lots of people would hate that idea and will run screaming from the room preferring to keep a little mystery in the relationship after all it keeps the blood pumping! However having said that maybe your 1st Honeymoon was not as relaxed as you would have liked it as you were discovering each other for the first time.
  2. Its a chance to rediscover each other. We all lead hectic lives and, at times, can take each other for granted.
  3. You’ve got more money to spend on the Honeymoon, after all you’ve not just shelled out for your wedding.
  4. You’re wiser.

Time to relax

The most important thing to do on your honeymoon is to relax. You are going to be at the beach, so you can’t just bring work with you, or try to figure out how to get your kids ready for school over there. If something comes up in your life, don’t worry about it, because there is nothing that can’t wait until later. This is a really good time for couples who have been together long enough but still want a break from their kids or career responsibilities but still want some structure in terms of what they’re doing every day while they’re away

Rekindle the romance

What does it mean to rekindle the romance?

There are many ways you can rekindle the romance, from going on a romantic holiday together to having dinner at home, which is more likely in your case if you just got married and haven’t had time for a honeymoon yet. The key is to make the most of what you have right now, whether that be two days or two weeks away from work and responsibilities. You don’t need fancy dinners or expensive outings; instead, focus on quality over quantity. You can go out for dinner but choose a place where there isn’t loud music playing so that you can talk comfortably without shouting (a romantic restaurant with reasonably priced entrées will do). Or cook together at home using ingredients that come from a local farmer’s market (which will also save money).

After the kids are older

Once your children are older, you can consider a second honeymoon. You’ll be able to travel without them and explore exotic locations around the world. Plan a longer trip for two weeks or more to fully enjoy the holiday together. The best time to go is during the off-season when prices are lower, crowds are smaller, and weather is more temperate.

If you want to treat yourselves to some luxury while away from home, look into booking an all-inclusive resort where everything is taken care of by their staff—from room service meals delivered right to your door step (no cooking!) to activities like scuba diving lessons complete with equipment rental included in your package costs (no worries about finding time before or after work). When it comes time for romance on your second honeymoon in paradise—don’t forget that candles make great nightlights!

Plan a surprise holiday

Planning a surprise holiday can be fun and exciting. The first step is to decide where you would like to go. You may want to take your spouse somewhere they have never been before, or maybe revisit an old favourite spot that holds fond memories for both of you.

The next step is deciding how long you will stay away from home, as this can make all the difference in terms of budgeting for the trip and also planning what activities you want to do while there (as well as what clothes).

Once these two details are sorted out, then it’s time for some clever planning!

  • Make sure your spouse does not have any clue about the trip, especially when it comes to planning it. This can be difficult if they are also in charge of paying the bills and keeping track of them. But if you do this right, then they will have no idea how much money is actually being spent on the holiday.
  • Be sure to pack everything you will need for the trip. This includes any medications or personal items that are important to your well-being, as well as any travel documents such as passports and visas.
  • Leave a note for family members about where you went and when you expect to return. This can help prevent unnecessary worry if something does go wrong during your trip.
  • Make sure you have a solid plan of what you will do while away. You don’t want to sit around twiddling your thumbs, as this can be boring and frustrating for both of you. Try to make sure there is something exciting planned every day, even if it’s just an hour-long walk through the city or a trip to the local museum.
  • Make sure that your spouse has some time off work so that they are not stressed about being away from their job for too long (unless this was part of the surprise).
  • When it comes to booking your flight, make sure you have a good idea of when you want to go. This will help you find the best deal for your travel dates.

Etiquette on 2nd Honeymoons

  • Don’t bring up old grumbles. There’s not much that annoys a person more than someone bringing up what they did wrong years ago on a holiday.
  • Accept their little habits as cute! If your partner is a night owl who likes to stay out late, let them go out with the guys and have fun! If they’re not very tidy, don’t point it out every time you see something out of place: just clean it up quickly and quietly when no one is looking!
  • Accept they can be right occasionally. Don’t go overboard here—if your partner says something ridiculous then cut him or her off before he or she has a chance to expound on the topic, but if there are some truths in what he or she says then acknowledge that too! Appreciate how well-informed they are on certain topics, even if those topics aren’t exactly relevant to your own interests.
  • Ensure your expenditure on Honeymoon meets your ability to pay! . If you plan on going on a big holiday, make sure that you can afford it! Don’t go overboard with spending if your budget is tight: stick to activities that are inexpensive and fun rather than extravagant.

Use travel agents and apps

If you’re looking for a holiday that’s more than just a trip to the beach with your spouse, there are a number of options at your disposal.

Travel agents and travel apps offer different services, but they both provide the same benefit: finding affordable travel packages that meet your needs. Travel agents are typically more expensive than apps because they offer personalized service (and often commission on each sale). However, some agents can help you find discounts at hotels that don’t advertise them publicly or book flights at lower prices than what’s available online. Travel apps give users access to all available information about their destination(s) including activities and attractions nearby as well as transportation options between destinations such as buses or trains—but these services tend to be expensive because the app developers must charge for all this data usage! In contrast with using an agent where meetings take place in person before planning begins; using an app allows users instant access without having first met face-to-face which makes it easier – especially if you don’t live near one another anymore since distance makes communication difficult sometimes due mainly due

Style of 2nd honeymoon you might like

Boat going to love island
  • Romantic: This can be anything from a romantic getaway, to a holiday with your significant other that includes candlelit dinners and long walks on the beach.
  • Exciting: A honeymoon is meant for excitement! You may want to go skydiving or bungee jumping off a bridge over some majestic river or gorge. Or maybe you want something more tame like going parasailing or riding in an air balloon.
  • Kinky: Some couples enjoy adding some kinkiness into their marriage by taking part in BDSM activities while on their honeymoon. These can include bondage and discipline, dominance/submission, sadism/masochism, bondage & discipline (B&D), domination & submission (D&S), sadism & masochism (S&M).
  • Nature: A nature-oriented honeymoon may include camping under the stars while admiring breath taking vistas of mountains and oceans; hiking through woods full of ferns and flowers; canoeing down rivers filled with wildlife such as birds, deer, bears—you name it! You could even go on safari into Africa where you’ll see lions roaming around freely without being locked up behind bars at all times like they are here in America due to animal rights laws passed back in the late 20th century after activists protested against conditions within zoos nationwide which resulted in many deaths occurring among both humans who worked there as well as animals kept captive for exhibition purposes only rather than being allowed free range across large parcels of land owned by private individuals who wanted nothing more than peace from having neighbour’s nearby but couldn’t afford houses away from civilization due to housing prices so high they wouldn’t be able…

Choose your destination

  • Choose a destination that is not too far away. You want to be able to enjoy your trip, so don’t make it difficult by going somewhere too far away unless the travelling is part of the holiday experience.
  • Is there anything worse than being somewhere where it’s either way too hot or way too cold? Make sure you pick somewhere in the middle when choosing your 2nd honeymoon destination.
  • While there’s nothing wrong with splurging on yourself and getting the most expensive hotel room (or suite) available, do keep an eye out for pricing when booking flights and accommodations—you don’t want to spend all of your time worrying about money instead of enjoying yourselves!
  • Finally perhaps, choose a destination that is not busy with tourists; this goes along with choosing an affordable one as well as one where it won’t be freezing outside in December or baking inside during July!

Origins of the word Honeymoon

The origins of the word honeymoon are unknown. Many scholars believe that it derives from an Anglo-Saxon term for a month of feasting after a marriage, but this has not been proven. The first known reference to “honeymoon” dates from 1721, when it was used in a poem by Elizabeth Singer Rowe, who writes:

“And bridegrooms too will be joyful anew/When they’ve been married on their ‘honeymoons.'”

A 2nd honeymoon is a perfect opportunity to reconnect with your spouse after a long period of parenting or working

A second honeymoon is a perfect opportunity to reconnect with your spouse after a long period of parenting or working.

It’s also the perfect way for you both to relax and enjoy each other’s company, especially if you’ve been engaged in the day-to-day grind of full-time parenting, which can leave little room for romance.

You should use this time as an opportunity to do things that were not possible during your first marriage (such as going out to dinner).


2nd honeymoons are a great way to reconnect with your spouse after years of parenting and working. The time you spend together on the second honeymoon should be all about relaxing, having fun and re-igniting the spark in your marriage.
