What’s you ideal second honeymoon? We’ve identified three main constituent parts for an ideal second honeymoon. The Location, the people and the time these all however vary and are very much dependant upon the couple you are, we’ve tried not to be prescriptive to any style of honeymoon on our site and try to offer a wide range of honeymoon offerings. Let us know your ideal second honeymoon and we’ll try and match the experience.
Now that you’re older and wiser hopefully you’re more in touch with what would be a great honeymoon that will truly reinvigorate you and your partner spurring you on to even greater things. One main themes we notice with second honeymoons is people’s desire to have more opulence and creature comforts (even when climbing Mount Kilimanjaro!) We’ve tried to incorporate this with our recommended honeymoons.
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.

Origins of the word Honeymoon
The word honeymoon stretches back into biblical times. Couples then were encouraged to drink mead every night for a complete moon cycle after getting married, the sweet part of mead being honey you can see how they got to the term honey moon and thus honeymoon.
The idea of this was the result of this honeymoon would appear some nine months down the line!
Indeed the Royal Chemistry Society were hoping to prove that mead helped the conception process: further details are here and here We’ve done extensive searches to see if the results were published and it appears not, nor if indeed the research was ever carried out.
