There's nothing better than travelling the world with a loved one, but trips marketed to couples are often pretty naff. So we've locked eyes on the pinnacle of couples holidays – the honeymoon – and given it a get lost twist in issue 52. In this special feature we unite some of the best adventures on the planet with barefoot luxury by the beach across 13 two-part honeymoons.
Epicurean couples will salivate over our Japanese selection, which pairs a ramen crawl with chilling out in the country's little-known subtropical isles. Those looking for a more rugged adventure will canter over blazing dunes in Jordan and then jet to nearby Tel Aviv for an urban-beachside escape. And for the couple that's done just about everything? They'll dig the four-cabin Amazon River cruiser followed by a relaxation sesh on Uruguay's coast.
There's something for every duo in this collection of 13 not so average honeymoons. Just call us Cupid.
“Honeymoons are begging for a revamp,” says get lost publisher Justin Jamieson. “When people think of get lost, honeymoons don't typically come to mind and that is exactly why we we're so excited to share our collection.”
“Couples these days have unleashed their desire for adventure well before tying the knot. They're happy to splurge on an experience that's unique and will bring them closer together. Plonking down at a resort no longer cuts the mustard.”
“Anyone who's hosted a wedding will know that relaxing after your big day is essential, so we've teamed each of our adventures with a great place to unwind by the beach. It's a match made in heaven.”
The new issue of get lost is not just for lovebirds. There's diving among immense coral bommies in American Samoa, a Nordic cruise in search of the northern lights, cycling in Slovenia and waves to surf in Taiwan. Plus, we take on Belfast's nightlife, wash away our sins at the world's biggest gathering in India, cop a whipping at a Peruvian pilgrimage and cook up poisson cru in French Polynesia.
You'll find all this and more in the new issue of get lost magazine. On sale from this week at newsagents and online from Apple Newsstand and Amazon.
