Hello all,

My partner and I have deecided to exchange vows in the fall. Nothing legal only sentimental as we live in a place that feels threatened by all forms of love and commitment.

Anyhow, we are talking about a wonderful pace for our honeymoon. Any suggestions a.netters? We will have two weeks and have not set a time yet. The budget is faorly flexible. We just want a fabulous and memorable time.

Umm...didn't we have a thread earlier about Disney's Gay Honeymooner's Package deal thing?

Maybe someone can shed some light on that.

Go on a gay cruise.

Straight people do, so I don't see why gays would be any different.



911, where is your emergency?

I have been to the Frenchman's Reef Marriott in St. Thomas (Charlotte Amaile Harbor) with my Partner (Husband in Canada, we got married up there  , and they are very gay friendly.

San Juan is nice too and had a huge gay area called Candado, but crime is a little high if you get off the beaten path. there are several great hotels on the beach right by the airport with decent things to do too.


If it's fall Hurricane season and you are worried about the Carribean,you could also think about Amsterdam or London (Lots of Romantic things to do in both those cities and fall isn't that brutal).

Quebec City or Montreal are also great gay Friendly destinations and since you list Paris and Atlanta as home, it's kind of 1/2 way between symbolically if not literally.

Congratulations and enjoy!!

The message you were about to post is too short and probably not of any higher value to the topic at hand. You should think long and hard before posting a message in this forum and make it detailed and a valuable addition to the topic discussed

Good for you! It's really more about the personal commitment anyway.

Give us a bit more information...I know you said something fabulous, but are you guys more the outdoors/beach type, or high culture (I know you are in theatre), or do you like historical places, etc.

Well, a gay couple I know absolutely adores Tahiti and the islands of French Polynesia. They have been numerous times.

Definitely would be some cultural experiences to discover.

You need to love yourself and do something more special than a gay cruise. What's your budget and adventure tolerance?

Somewhere private in the Bahamas?

How about Norway? Oslo to Kristiansand to Stavanger to Bergen along the coast road, taking it easy, and then take the overland scenic train back to Oslo.

Just ideas. Still think going to a NASCAR race is tops! lol

Actually I hate NASCAR.

It might not be adventurous enough for you two, but a few months ago I went to Mal Pais in Costa Rica. Stayed in a really nice little hotel (I guess you could call it that) in a pretty remote part of the country (30 min. by Cessna Caravan, then 30 more by car) on the beach. It might not be the best place if you want to do a lot of things, but if you'd just like to relax and spend time together, it's really nice. It's a perfectly safe place to be and you don't need to know much Spanish to get around. Also, that particular hotel will set you up in a beautiful little bungalow for not a lot of money.

And if you like outdoorsy things, it's right next to the Cabo Blanco nature preserve.

Anyway, that's just my suggestion. Whatever you two choose, I wish you both a good trip and happy travels.

BTW, I like your username!  biggrin

How about the Maldives?

I spent my honeymoon there and we absolutely loved it. However, since it is a Muslim country, I am not sure how open to gays would the resorts be (I don't remember seen any gay couple in our island).

There is a wonderful island about 200NM off the coast of Brazil called Fernando de Noronha. You can stay for a maximum of 1 week there, since the whole place is a huge ecological reserve. However, there is seldom a more beautiful place on earth. Swimming with dolphins (naturally, not arranged for a fee), hiking, mountain climbing and a completely relaxed atmosphere - no one would care if you are gay or not. Not to mention some of the best scuba diving I have ever done in my life. Besides, you can always spend some time in Brazil (mainland) before heading to the Island.

Just my  twocents 

Some pics of Noronha for you.

Congrats Alex!

If you want to be dazed by the scenery, go to the Seychelles Islands in the Indian Ocean.

If you want a mix of nice environment/beach and some fun, go to Provincetown MA

If you want adventure within a beautiful setting and some adventure, go to Queensland Australia, north of Cairns is the Daintree Rainforest, south of Cairns is Mission Beach with one of the nicest beaches I know, and.. try Skydiving! Then go back to Sydney and settle for a few days at the Shangri-La hotel, enjoy that beautiful City/Country before flying back.

Cheers,

Pat
