The 10-Year Honeymoon: Video Highlights from Our 7-continent Journey

January 22, 2022 marked TEN YEARS since we left on our HoneyTrek. It was supposed to be a one-year honeymoon to check off everything on our bucket list, but we quickly realized that’s not what it was about.

Guanajuato, Mexico: The Happiest Little City

Guanajuato City feels like one of the happiest places on Earth. The cradle of Mexican Independence, nationals come here to pay homage to their forefathers and celebrate all night long.

Behind the Scenes: Our Go Dominican Republic Video Shoot

Everyone’s heard of Punta Cana…but Barahona and Pedernales? You’d think this area of the Dominican Republic would be famous for having the country’s only UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, the lowest point in the Caribbean, and the one place in the world to find the precious Larimar stones, but no…the Southwest DR is a hidden gem.

Our amazing neighbors Julie and Luis decked us out with wigs, hats, boas, Beetlejuice pants, and pounds of face-paint…then we entered the Dia de Los Muertos parade. Catrina, the Queen of the Dead, led thousands of people along with dancers, musicians, fire-throwers,…

Deep in the Mekong Delta

Our love-hate relationship with Vietnam began the moment we crossed into the Mekong Delta. It’s gorgeous, it’s exotic, it’s a veritable sensory overload…but Vietnam has more shysters than any of the other 33 countries we visited on the entire HoneyTrek–combined! We got scammed/lied to/accosted five separate times in our first three days in the country….

How to Ride the Local Bus in Africa and Live to Tell the Tale

While traveling 8,512 kilometers overland from Victoria Falls, Zambia to Lamu Island, Kenya does not quite make us experts in the field…we did learn some very valuable lessons on the mysterious process of African overland travel.

Cheetah on Our Car in the Maasai Mara – [VIDEO]

After watching the frenzy of wildebeest and zebra darting back and forth across the Mara river, crocs nipping at them underwater, and leopards waiting for them on the other side, we didn’t think any more action was possible…but in the Maasai Mara there is no cap on the adventures in a day. Enter the greatest…
