My friends Mike and Anne Howard of have a new book coming out next week (October 1). Mike and Anne have been living nomadically since they left on their honeymoon in 2012 and never came home. They’ve lived all around the world and just completed a 73,000-mile glamping quest. Their book—”Comfortably Wild“—is drawn from that trip, on which they glamped in over 60 places across nine countries over two years.
