We’re Mike and Anne Howard, two Americans that realized life is short, the world is big, and the value of travel too great to wait another day. So when it came time for our honeymoon, we decided to sell our stuff and embark on a trip around the world. We left on January 22, 2012, and are on “The World’s Longest Honeymoon….11 years and counting!”

Using Anne’s background as a magazine editor and Mike’s as a digital media strategist and photographer, we started our couples travel blog to share our seven-continent journey and inspire more people to follow their far-flung dreams. HoneyTrek has grown to be a leading travel blog with over 375,000 followers and has received acclaim from hundreds of media outlets—from USA Today to Lonely Planet. National Geographic even took notice of our crazy journey and asked us to write their first book on couples’ adventure travel, Ultimate Journeys for Two. We’re proud to say it’s a bestseller and published in four languages. To write our newest book and explore our own continent, we bought a vintage RV (aka Buddy the Camper) and set out on a two-year, nine-country, 73,000-mile quest to find the best glamping experiences in North America. The result is Comfortably Wild, an award-winning guidebook and the first ever written on this trending travel style.

By the time our book was finished, Buddy the Camper was a part of the HoneyTrek family. It’s our “homebase on wheels” whenever we are in the US and Buddy patiently waits for us in long-term parking while we are abroad the other 60% of the year. That’s right, no house, no apartment, or even a spare room at our parent’s house, we’re true digital nomads and full-time travelers with insatiable wanderlust.

Travel has been our greatest learning and bonding experience, and we’re excited to share our favorite destinations, experiences, and tips with you!

HoneyTrek Travel Style & Route

As full-time nomads and travel journalists, we are always on the hunt for off-the-track destinations, uncommon adventures, and the human stories that make each place so special. We like to create loose itineraries that leave room for on-the-ground recommendations and unexpected opportunities. That said, some things are worth a little extra planning…volunteer teaching in a tribal village, reviewing a glamping property for our new book, house-sitting a beachfront villa…times when it gives a truly immersive or once-in-a-lifetime experience.
