National Geographic’s first book on couples travel
Mike and Anne Howard have been traveling on the World’s Longest Honeymoon for seven years across all seven continents. Their National Geographic book, Ultimate Journeys for Two: Extraordinary Destinations on Every Continent, includes 75 of the couple’s favorite hidden-gem destinations, in addition to romantic adventures, inspiring stories, and handy travel hacks.
The descriptive storytelling and stunning photographs transport you all over the world. You and your significant other will want to pack your bags right away. Each destination includes a beautifully-worded description and interesting travel story. Additionally, there are separate sections for when to go, where to stay, helpful tips, adventures for couples, and ways to make the trip even more romantic.
I especially like how this 272-page book isn’t organized by continents but by type of destination like mountains, deserts, and beaches. This makes it easy to use to figure out where you and your special someone want to visit next. And it might even help you consider a destination you hadn’t previously thought of visiting. All you have to do is decide what kind of destination and experience you’re both in the mood for!
Ultimate Journeys for Two isn’t only about the best off-the-beaten-path destinations for couples. Mike and Anne share a plethora of tips on traveling together as a couple. At the end of the book, there is a section covering how to travel smart with hacks from power couples, tips to pack like a pro, creative ways to get local, and how to make a positive impact throughout your travels.
This coffee-table-meets-guidebook is a perfect gift for you and your significant other or a travel couple whether as a wedding or birthday gift or even for the holidays. You can grab a copy on Amazon or a signed copy on HoneyTrek.

Describe the best destinations you’ve been to as a couple. What are your most memorable travel experiences with your significant other? My husband and I really enjoyed visiting Asheville, North Carolina on our honeymoon earlier this year.
