Poll: Worst Honeymoon Locations?


landfill honeymoon, anyone?

I’m feeling the pressure. In August I will be celebrating my tenth anniversary, a second honeymoon of sorts. I’ve been trying to figure out where we’re going to go and I’m drawing a blank. So I’m putting the question out to you readers since I know she’ll never read the blog. But I’d like to take a different tack. Rather than finding the best spots to celebrate, I’d like to compile a list of the worst honeymoon locations.

Then I’ll choose the opposite of them all.

Okay, so far I have come up with:

  • The dump
  • Osino, Nevada
  • The ER
  • Being stranded in the Andes like those rugby players
  • Captive on an alien spacecraft by over-curious martians
  • Coerced into an all-day group reading of Finnegan’s Wake
  • Trapped in a movie theater showing nothing but episodes of Entertainment Tonight

Okay, I think this gives me a good start. I believe I know what the exact opposite of each of these is, so I’m pointed in the direction of some good honeymoon spots.

What other non-romantic spots can you come up with?

    Well, for you I’d say any tropical island. Why you ask??

    S H A R K S!

      Dean, that’s not quite bad enough. I think I could have a fine time on an island. More appropriate would be “In a deteriorating shark cage at 20 fathoms.” I don’t know how a deep a fathom is, but you get it.

        One fathom = 6 feet.

        On to bad honeymoon spots, how about 2,200 feet down a Chilean coal mine?

    Any place on earth where people have suffered a recent disaster. Sadly, that’s almost everywhere.

    I can think of these four:

    1. – El penal García Moreno (Is the men-only penitentiary for convicted rapers and killers here in Ecuador).

    2. – Parrot Jungle (it’s just boring).

    3. – Anywhere near a shopping mall (assuming you represent the male component).

    4. – (This one is based in a personal, bitter experience) Any place which you have to reach by horse ridding for more than 3 hours, especially if your tenders are not accustomed to that practice.

    I think, for people who have reached the milestone of 10 years of marriage, tent camping is a BAD idea. At ten years, with a small child, you both need a little pampering. Hot baths; hot food; warm, soft bed. And someone else to do the cleaning up. A motorhome might be o.k., if you just love to camp. But no tent camping. Not for an anniversary. You need to rekindle the spark. In a tent, that could cause a fire!
