Born in Hollywood, schooled in Amish country, and most recently residing in New York City, Anne E. Collins quit her job as a magazine editor (formerly for ELLE DECOR, House Beautiful, and One Kings Lane) to take a 675-day honeymoon around the world with her husband Mike and chronicle the journey on HoneyTrek.com.
During arguably the most extensive honeymoon ever, they were brought on as “Newlyweds at Large” for Honeymoons.com, scouting and reviewing the most romantic destinations on the globe. Their writing and photography have also been featured in acclaimed publications such as Condé Nast Traveler, The Knot, and CBS Local.
