Epic ‘HoneyTrek’: This couple has been on their honeymoon for 2,500 days

Mike and Anne Howard got married in 2012. On Jan. 22 of that year, they boarded a one-way flight to Brazil for their honeymoon. They haven’t stopped honeymooning since.

They have now been on their honeymoon, or “HoneyTrek” as they call it, for more than 2,500 days. They have been to seven continents and 53 countries.

“When we were planning our honeymoon, we realized how many places we wanted to explore, all the experiences we hoped to have in our lives, and that a 10-day trip just wasn’t going to cut it,” Mike Howard says. “Life is short, the world is big, and the value of travel is too great to wait until retirement.”

They earn their living by blogging about their adventures on HoneyTrek.com. They have also just published a National Geographic book on couples adventure travel, Ultimate Journeys for Two.

When they embarked on their journey, they hit the highlights first: Machu Picchu in Peru, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, a safari in the Serengeti.

After ticking off their bucket list items over six months, they decided to explore more obscure places. At the moment, they are housesitting for two months on the island of Roatan in Honduras.

“By not staying on the hotel strip, having actual neighbors, shopping in local markets, and making Honduran friends, we’re truly experiencing this destination,” Howard says.
