Hmm, not too shabby.

So, you've just gotten hitched. Congratulations! The whole world is at your feet.

Literally. It's time to jet off on perhaps one of the more special holidays of your lifetime. So, where will you go?

Perhaps you're a Canadian Rockies climber, or you're looking to kick back in Bora Bora. Maybe cruising around Cuba is more your jam.

People still cruise around in these, right?

We're told that planning our ideal honeymoon is key -- and timing is everything. But that's not always easy. What are your partner's interests? How much time can you take off? And are there any little ones in tow?

Luckily, our good friends at Lonely Planet have launched their first handbook for newlyweds who want to honeymoon their way. Aside from offering more than 25 of their top locations, they've included tips on budget breakdowns, where to go with your kids and which locations are LGBTQ-friendly. Here's a sneak peak.

'Familymoons'

Yes, these are most definitely a thing. Because honeymoons aren't necessarily always a two-person deal.

The Rocky Mountains and lakes of western Montana are a kiddie's playground -- think tree-top tours and alpine slides -- whilst the kid-friendly island of Reunion in the Indian Ocean offers you parents a dual slice of honeymoon paradise.

'Islandmoons'

While we're on the island bandwagon...we'll leave these here. And whilst we can't pronounce a few of these, they really need no words. See for yourself.
