Why not choose the Caribbean as your second honeymoon destination?

Your wedding day is one of the most memorable occasions of your life, and for those that count travel as one of their favourite activities, we'd put money on the fact that the honeymoon was even better.

Whether you chose to jet off on a blow-the-budget trip or kept things simple with a charming staycation in the UK, those first few days of wedded bliss are the material memories are made of. But should a honeymoon really be just a once-in-a-lifetime event?

No matter if you've been married two years or 20, a second honeymoon makes for a wonderful excuse to spend some quality time together and revisit those early days of wedded bliss.

Why not treat yourself to the escape of your dreams and set yourself the challenge of topping that first experience? Here are a few destinations you might want to consider…

#1 Europe

Make the most of the continent by exploring some of the enchanting cities and towns that are right on your doorstep.

Take a leisurely river cruise along the glittering Danube, ending with a few days strolling the fairy-tale streets of historic Prague, or discover an island of ice and fire on a tour through the spell-binding landscapes of Iceland - take a dip in the Blue Lagoon together and marvel at the midnight sun.

European adventures are steeped in magnificent architecture, rich history, tantalising gastronomy and, above all, plenty of delicious romance.

Make the most of your honeymoon and allow yourself to be waited on hand and foot at a four star resort in Barbados or book a tour to discover the tree-topped mountains and waterfalls of the Dominican Republic.

Alternatively, plan a city break in Havana and soak up the colourful culture of Cuba where all the liveliest musicians live. You can let all your worries melt away in this laid-back part of the world and focus on an experience you'll both cherish forever.

Dilemma: I want to travel but my husband doesn't
