IMAGE Sweet Escape

Anne Curtis and Erwan Heussaff have so far visited 11 countries as a married couple. They got married in New Zealand in November 2017.


Anne Curtis and Erwan Heussaff, without a doubt, are the most-traveled celebrity couple in the country.

Before tying the not on November 12, 2017, with the scenic New Zealand serving as their wedding backdrop, the two have tried and tested their relationship in 34 countries.

Their very first date abroad was in the United States, when they both attended the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in Indio, California.

Erwin had not even told Anne then about his feelings for her. 

The highlights of that trip were recounted by Anne in an Instagram post dated April 21. Her long caption read:

"Since it’s Coachella weekend, I’m throwing it back to this time 9 years ago - back when we were just dating and before we could even think of getting married. 

"Story behind this photo - Coachella. 2010. I was so excited to watch @sheandhim live for the first time. I am a huge fan. Traffic was horrendous and I decided to get out of the car and sprint my way across the grounds to the outdoor theatre just to make it. When I got there, they had JUST finished their performance. I was devasted and this is how he found me - in tears. He gave me a hug, comforted me and it helped and I felt so loved (even without him telling me he loved me yet)...

"And now, after 9 years and now as my husband, I still get those kind of hugs... and IT IS ENOUGH to make all well. No matter what I’m dealing with in life. I guess I’m getting all mushy and wanted to make an appreciation post for my husband who put up with my whiney baby-ness this whole trip.

"Je t’aime mon amour. As you told me this morning, as you hugged me again, I’ve never been loved this much before and it’s true and I will eternally be grateful to the Lord for sending you to me. Here’s to more of those kind of hugs and adventures together... we may have missed out on coachella but Yosemite and having the best wine in Napa was worth it and I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way. Here’s to celebrating love and I hope you, who took the time to read this, find that one person (if you haven’t yet) who can give you “those” kind of hugs! Happy Easter everybody! #OLDchella #WineChella"

Mount Sabyinyo in Rwanda, where Anne got to be a "bride again" on their first anniversary.

Anne related, "@erwan and I decided to do a guided community walk at the foot of Sabyinyo mountain around Kinigi, Rwanda. We got to meet the local families, learn about their ways, hear and see their traditional dances, songs and ceremonies. They asked us to join in on some of their dances and during one of the traditonal ceremonies they asked if I could be the bride. They showed us what happens during a wedding ceremony. Was a lot of fun but as you see I was a bit ashamed of how heavy I must be. Had the most amazing time with these kind spirits!"
