Family Glamping: Comfortably Wild Vacations

« All podcasts

Prepare yourself for uncommon adventure, as the “World’s Longest Honeymooners” share their favorite glamping spots for families in North America.



Mike and Anne Howard – Creators of HoneyTrek

Mike & Anne Howard left on their honeymoon in January 2012 and never came home. They created to chronicle their journey across all seven continents and to help people mobilize their travel dreams. Known to be the “World’s Longest Honeymooners,” they have been featured in dozens of media outlets from Condé Nast Traveler to CBS News.

Having authored National Geographic’s best-selling couples adventure travel book, Ultimate Journeys for Two, the Howards were poised to write the first guide on glamping in North America, Comfortably Wild. They set out on a two-year road trip, glamping in over 60 places across nine countries, to find more than a collection of gorgeous accommodations, but transformative experiences for the whole family.


Thanks to the generosity of his grandmother, Aaron Schlein traveled to four continents and a dozen countries before he was old enough to vote. Those early trips convinced him that travel is an essential part of life.

More than two decades later, Aaron remains inspired by his grandmother’s generosity. He is committed to honoring her legacy by sharing the gift of travel with his own kids—and by helping other parents do the same.

Aaron is the host of Family Travel Radio—a weekly podcast presented by The Family Travel Association.

Aaron also helps new entrepreneurs use their personal stories to build a network, expand influence, and strengthen relationships.

Aaron lives in Sacramento, California with his wife and two children (who are growing up too fast!)
