Thoughts:

Full disclosure: I thought this when getting the book, as my wife and I are always on the lookout for places.

I enjoyed the format of this book very much. Lots of fantastic pictures, which I would expect nothing less of a National Geographic book, and also informative essays.

This is not a romantic, couples gateways as one might think.  The couple experiences the sights, places, cultures, and sometimes hardships (finding peanut butter in South America) which distinguishes traveling from just “going places”

Ultimate Journeys for Two: Extraordinary Destinations on Every Continent by Mike Howard and Anne Howard is undoubtedly not a traditional travel guide, actually it’s not a travel guide at all. This book allows the reader to skip in sections, and choose whatever trip or adventure they’d like to experience.

The authors’ travels are not written about in detail, quite the opposite. We really don’t read about much of their experiences, but more about recommendations for you and your significant other.

I love to travel, not just go places, and been to approximately ten of the many destinations in the book (and many not included). So… by all means there’s more to see and experience around the world.

The Howards are from my home state in New Jersey, and I especially loved the little sidebars of their anecdotes, those are what makes a trip memorable. I also appreciated the spotlights, also as sidebars, of fellow travel bloggers, an unexpected and wonderful homage to their circle.

The book does touch on topics which, as a couple, you should certainly think about ahead of time. Not only how to pick a destination, packing, saving, and airline points, but also how to find a bit of privacy when needed. On the bright side, if you survived a trip where both of you spend every waking moment together there’s a good chance you’re a good fit for each other.

This book certainly is meant to inspire couples find a destination. It is by no means a checklist (as much as I’d like it to be for myself), but a guide for young, childless couples, who are not bogged down by careers and domestication.
