A honeymoon is a vacation that is enjoyed by newlywed couples in an exotic and beautiful place just after their marriage ceremony. The word honeymoon comes from the word “hony moone” which refers to honey or sweetness. This word indicates the romantic moments a newlywed couple shares just after their marriage. This word was first used by British writer Samuel Johnson in 1542 in one of his writings. Then in 1552 Richard Huloet used this word once again in his writings.
The honeymoon that we see today started in the 19th century where newlywed couples go to visit the family members that were unable to be present at their marriage ceremony. But the actual history goes back to the 5th century where the newlywed couple would drink honey-based alcohol to cherish their first wedding moments, and these drinks were provided by guests who were invited to the marriage ceremony. Now the honeymoon is only for the couples; there is no one else, only them to share some romantic moments.
In this article, we would discuss some of the best honeymoon destinations around the world.
