This book from the 2000 day honeymoon couple shows you not just how to travel but how to live life to the fullest. So many travel books suggest where to go and what to see - this book adds another dimension -- how to experience the destination. Anne and Mike take calligraphy lessons, dance with locals, go off the beaten path and are warmly welcomed into homes by people around the world. That says a ton about the Howard's ability to connect. Something else I loved - they also generously connected with other couples who have dedicated a year or more to traveling the globe -- and share some of their stories and recommendations. This book is also a delight for armchair travelers who will enjoy the fantasy of roving to far flung places and seeing them through stunning photographs. Mike and Anne Howard have a spirit of adventure that is downright contagious. Putting down this book, I wanted to immediately hop on a plane, trace their steps and pack in some of the joy, delight, humor, excitement and wonder Anne and Mike Howard deliver in these pages.
By the way, now Mike and Anne have been driving around North America in an old camper trying to write a book on Glamping. Yeah, they live the life.
Look, I am an experienced traveler, but Ultimate Journeys for Two has helped open my eyes up to future plans for my wife and me. Now all I need is to get my kids to grow up!!! Maybe we'll just do their journey and make a second book called Ultimate Journeys for Four.....nah!!!!!
Anne and Mike encourage you to become travelers who want to drink deeply from the country and its people and their culture, respect the locals and their traditions and admire their heritage. Yet have lots of fun. By sharing food, mingling with people, learning from them, sharing some their daily life experiences—the traveler leaves with a lasting and greater understanding of this diverse world and its inhabitants-to develop and respect the differences—it truly broadens the mind.
One doesn’t have to do everything they did, but this book is a great inspiration to get out of one’s own comfort zone –maybe stay with a local family, see some places off the beaten track. See the well-known, but also explore the little-known places as well. For example, in Mui Ne, Vietnam there are fancy resorts to be enjoyed for sure but you shouldn't miss exploring the charming local fishing village nearby.
The subtitle says it all—“Extraordinary destinations on every continent,”and just reading about each will make you richer in mind and spirit.

Has loads of quirky and useful information and is ordered by what kind of holiday you want rather than where you want to go.
I've had the pleasure of meeting Mike and Anne a few times over the years, and they are two amazing people whose zest for life and love of travel shine through in this book. Definitely get yourself a copy!!
