About Us

Dan and Michelle are the creators of Honeymoon Always.

We’re experts in all-inclusive resorts and have traveled to the most popular honeymoon destinations and started Honeymoon Always to share it with you.

We met in Austin, Texas, and took our first trip together to NYC, an experience that led us to realize how much we loved each other. We got married and started sharing our travel experiences together with millions of visitors.

In early 2021, we decided to sell our home in Austin and move to Lisbon, Portugal to work on our travel business full-time. We share more about our lives as expats and travelers on YouTube and Instagram.

We also partner with 58 Stars, a travel agency offering custom travel experiences, to provide travel planning services to our readers. 

We are members of the Sandals Royal Chairmans Club at the highest level for our expertise and experience with Sandals Resorts and are some of the top Sandals Travel Agents.
