“I was inspired by Marriott International’s idea of #LoveTravels, and thought it was an incredible opportunity to share my love of soccer as well as my other personal passions,” said Tim Howard.

“#LoveTravels is about elevating travel beyond basic necessities and making it more about the people walking through the door. It is about feeling comfortable with who you are and tapping into that sense of belonging for the ultimate travel experience.”

The portraits and digital videos that form the campaign also feature entrepreneur Angela Simmons, chef Mia Banducci, Dutch model Anouschka Dap and Founder & CEO of MIMA Media Christoph Geiseler.

The campaign invites travellers around the world to post what #LoveTravels means to them on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
