Today’s episode is with Mike and Anne Howard. They left on their honeymoon in January 2012 and have been exploring the globe ever since. They realized life is short, the world is big, and the value of travel too great to wait until retirement, so to kick off their marriage they decided to take a trip around the world…on what has become “The World’s Longest Honeymoon.” Using Anne’s background as a national magazine editor and Mike’s as a digital marketing executive and photographer, they created HoneyTrek.com to chronicle their journey across 50+ countries and 7 continents, and share tips with anyone looking to mobilize their travel dreams. Their unique journey, engaging blog, and savvy tips have been acclaimed by the Washington Post, Condé Nast Traveler, Los Angeles Times, The Daily Mail, CBS, and more– including Microsoft’s 2016 TV ad campaign.
Firm believers that love and travel make the world a better place, Mike & Anne continue to spread the word as Smithsonian speakers and National Geographic authors with their new book, Ultimate Journeys for Two. In National Geographic’s first book on couples adventure travel, Mike and Anne take readers through 75 featured destinations, Top 10s, travel hacks, personal anecdotes, and keys to an unforgettable journey.
