As part of our Smithsonian Associates, Art Of Living series, we are joined today by Mike and Anne Howard, of @honeytrek

After a decade working nine-to-five, Mike and Anne Howard decided that life is short and their bucket list was long . . . so they quit their jobs, rented out their apartment, and embarked on a trip around the world. Five years later, they are still at it — traveling across seven continents and more than 50 countries.

In a conversation rich with resources, the Howards — founders of the travel website share practical tips and industry trends illustrating how you can travel well for significantly less. The couple describe a more immersive and creative way to travel — where saving money is but one of the pleasurable benefits, but meeting the wonderful local people along the way is almost more meaningful.

From frequent flyer tickets to free lodging, no-cost volunteering (more on WWOOF Here…and photos below), and hidden-gem destinations, they point out ways you can transfer from the “tourist track” and move out as a globetrotter — on any budget.
