Travel is my personal passion, and my professional one: I’ve spent the last 15+ years traveling the globe as a travel editor and writer, and now share my on-the- ground knowledge with couples looking for an amazing romantic escape. But not everyone wants that five-star overwater bungalow in Bora Bora — or can afford it. Here are seven ideas for couples who have larger travel dreams than they may have budget.

Oregon Wine Country:

Willamette Valley wines are as tasty as those from Napa, as is the scenery. Start in Portland and have a road trip honeymoon!

Prague, Czech Republic:

The Eastern European capital offers ample history and vibe for a fraction of the Euro than other cultural hubs like Paris or Rome.

Malaysia:

This Southeast Asian country is a haven for foodies and island-hoppers, and a relative bargain once you get there.

South Africa:

This diverse country offers world-class vineyards, amazing cities, dramatic coastline and the Big Five on safari, all within driving distance or short hops by plane.

Nicaragua:

Think of this burgeoning Central American hot spot as the new Costa Rica, without the cost or crowds — yet.

Alabama/Florida Gulf Coast:

The sugar-sand beaches here rival — or top — the Caribbean, without the cost of an international flight.

New Orleans:

America’s most unique city is also one of our best travel bargains, from hotels to dining to (free) people-watching.
