Ireland

Chances are if you strike up a conversation with someone in Ireland you'll likely find yourself still swapping stories hours later in the local pub. The Irish are welcoming to those visiting their country and will happily help you find a hotel for the night, recommend a restaurant, or share tips on what to see in the area.

Australia

G'day, mate! Despite Australia's rough-and-tumble reputation, this country is home to some of the nicest people you'll ever meet. They'll help you find the perfect spot for scuba diving or where to get the best local grub, and they'll do it all with their lovable accents and open demeanor.

Canada

Head north to see European style cities and natural wonders, but don't be surprised when the best part of your Canadian honeymoon isn't Toronto, Niagara Falls, or Banff. The people of Canada are known world-wide for being kind and welcoming, and they'll likely smile a bit wider when they discover that you selected Canada out of all possible honeymoon destinations.
