While we continue building out HoneyTrek we will answer a few basic things:
Q: What is HoneyTrek?
A: HoneyTrek is our slightly delayed (we got married March 12, 2011) honeymoon trip around the world. The plan is to go places too far to visit while we have a job and too rugged to do when we’re old. Don’t try to see everything; move slowly but thoroughly. Have a plan to guide us but don’t let an itinerary bog us down. If we love a place, we’ll get to know it, meeting locals and living the local way. We not trying to change the world but we’d like help where we can.
That said, this is an E.B.White quote that rings very true to our hearts:
“I arise in the morning torn between a desire to change the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it very hard to plan each day”
We hope that our HoneyTrek allows us to do both: Experience so many amazing people/places/foods/animals/environments/music/architecture/art/ideas and at the same time volunteer and constantly brainstorm how we can apply our skill sets to make the world an amazing/loving/peaceful/self-sustaining/smiling place.
Q: Where will you be going?
A: While we are leaving our trip pretty open-ended and not making many hard and fast plans, here is our loose itinerary:
– South Africa
– New Zealand
Europe (added in 2013):
– Northern Ireland
Q: How can we follow along?
A: EMAIL: If you had to pick just one way to keep up with our travels, signing up for our newsletter is the absolute best way! We would love to have you subscribe to our newsletter (see the box to the right to enter your email address). We will only send you something when we make a new post, and you can be certain we will not share your email address with anyone.
Q: Can we partner with HoneyTrek?
A: A resounding yes. We are looking to connect with companies in the travel and/or honeymoon industry that would like to align their brands with a energetic couple who knows about long-term travel. If you would like to chat about a potential partnership please do not hesitate to reach out to us [email protected] or by phone, (888) 852-9384.
In closing we would like to say how excited we are to have you along for this journey. We look forward to hearing your thoughts on the countries we visit and growing together as we experience the tremendous beauty the world has to offer. It is going to be wild ride, we hope you are ready!
With so much love,
Mike & Anne
