January 22, 2022 marked TEN YEARS since we left on our HoneyTrek. It was imagined to be a one-year honeymoon to test off all the pieces on our bucket record, however we rapidly realized that’s not what it was about. It is about getting off that monitor, connecting with locals, and discovering (and creating) the great on this planet. 3,650 days, 63 nations, and seven continents later, that also holds true, and our drive to discover is simply as sturdy. That mentioned, it has been a WILD journey and never with out its ups and downs…like that point we slept within the Rio de Janiero bus station throughout the insanity of Carnaval, or when our camper broke down in Canada and it took 4 days by ferry to succeed in a mechanic, or when a mouse chewed by way of our baggage in Thailand. Some days, we don’t understand how we maintain going with no homebase to retreat to, however one factor we do know is that we couldn’t have executed this with out the help of our HoneyTrek household–at house, on the street, and on-line. Thank you a lot for cheering us on for the final 10 years and serving to us chase our goals!
To commemorate our decade on honeymoon and all of the unbelievable locations, folks, and experiences which have touched our lives within the course of, we took on the huge process of turning 10-years price of movies right into a 7-minute highlight reel. It took us a stable month to edit down hundreds of movies and (with the assistance of an unbelievable editor) finesse our 300 finest clips into one thing that advised our story.

Each area is filled with attractive surroundings, historic structure, numerous wildlife, massive adventures, and colourful characters. To get between them, there was no flying first-class, we took each mode of transportation possible–rooster buses, dhow boats, Victorian trains, bush planes, and banana vans. Our lodging, nicely, that ranged from 5-star lodges to 15-person dorms. We even labored for room and board, mucking barn stalls and scraping barnacles off the underside of boats, if it meant we might keep a bit of longer within the locations we beloved. The variety of experiences made us admire the excessive and the low, and notice that there isn’t any such factor as a misadventure. Travel has taught us to maintain an open thoughts and an open coronary heart, and the kindness we’ve acquired in return humbles us day-after-day. Like Chan who took the bus 40 minutes within the unsuitable path to verify we made it to our cease in Beijing, or Todd the renegade mechanic who stayed up tinkering with the camper all evening to assist us get again on the street, or Eva the Polish farmer who took us in for 5 days throughout the top of the pandemic to maintain us heat, fed, and beloved. Every tradition we’ve encountered has been uniquely totally different, however all of us have extra in widespread than you’d assume.
