We imagine it, we fine-tune it, we are planning then changing endlessly every detail. It is finally an opportunity to spend some time together after the whirlwind of the wedding preparations and D-Day, some time to make our dreams come true. But what is it we talk of? Well, the honeymoon, of course!
A journey like no other
It is a Western tradition, and came from England in the 1800s. The practice soon spread throughout Europe as “Travelling like an Englishman” before it took its final name, honeymoon, in the late nineteenth century.
From the beginning, this trip had a bad reputation because it represented the first opportunity for the young couple to discover themselves physically and sexually, without a chaperone from the family! It should be noted, that the female pleasure was considered as dangerous by physicians at that time.
Today, the honeymoon is a vacation unlike any else, because it marks the debut of the newly united couple. It is an opportunity to finally rediscover each other, after the hurricane of the preparations and the ceremony itself. She can finally be called Madame, both may be registered under only one name and benefit from a variety of thoughtful little gifts from our partners with whom we arrange your trip.
